Power bank charging service Instpower announced its collaboration with Burger King in Paris to accept digital assets at the outlet.

After Burger King, Will McDonald’s Accept Shiba Inu?
McDonald’s and Burger King remain rivals for decades and who can forget the ‘burger wars‘ commercials? Their rivalry remains the talk of the town in marketing circles making it among the classic commercials. Both Burger King and McDonald’s have tried to outdo each other in whatever way possible to come out on top.
However, now that Burger King accepted Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies, McDonald’s might not. The reason is simple: McDonald’s did not cater to the world’s richest man Elon Musk when he announced that he would eat a Happy Meal live on television if the outlet accepts Dogecoin as payment.

If such a big larger-than-life endorsement (for free) by Elon Musk didn’t sway McDonald’s, nothing else could. Therefore, McDonald’s accepting Shiba Inu and other cryptocurrencies as payment might be a distant dream.
Previously, the Shiba Inu community tried convincing McDonald’s to accept SHIB but the burger joint poured cold water on their hopes. When a user asked them to accept SHIB, McD replied, “We appreciate hearing your interest and continuously evaluate the payments experience.” You can read more details about the conversation between a SHIB investor and McDonald’s here.
