An array of platforms entered the crypto market over the last couple of years. McDonald’s, however, was taking a whole different route. The fast-food giant was in fact ridiculing the crypto-verse following the latest carnage.

Recently, the crypto market was hit by a massive bearish wave. The entire market was bleeding as Bitcoin sunk below $40k. While the crypto community was dreading the loss incurred by the brutal crypto carnage, memes about crypto-traders taking up jobs at McDonald’s started surfacing the internet.

This whole joke further turned into an NFT. McDonald’s job applications were all over OpenSea, a popular NFT marketplace. With over 1,111 job application NFTs, OpenSea was flooded with McDonald-related NFTs. However, the fast-food giant wasn’t behind this.

Furthermore, a Twitter account was made in support of this NFT account. The bio of the account read, “ETH going down? can’t afford living? we got you! Apply now to your dream 9 to 5 McDonalds job with our application”

McDonald’s follows major Crypto Twitter accounts

Many from the crypto community joined in on the joke. The President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele has been going all-in on crypto. Bukele even changed his Twitter profile picture to one that shows him in a McDonald’s shirt and cap.

Further, McDonald’s decided to jump in on the fun and asked how the crypto-verse was doing.

The crypto community barraged into the comment section and all that the fast-food giant had to say was “wagmi” which further we are all gonna make it.

Additionally, McDonald’s proceeded to follow an array of Twitter accounts of people in the crypto-verse. The platform followed major crypto networks like Shiba Inu, BabyDoge, Dogelon Mars, Dogecoin, Polkadot, and similar accounts on Twitter. Apart from this, Coinbase, Binance, CoinMarketCap, were on the list. Dogecoin proponent Elon Musk went as far as to state,

But not everyone was on board with the fast-food chain’s latest move. A few of them called out the fast-food chains for their ever broken ice-cream machines.
