Dogecoin (DOGE) has seemingly responded favorably to Burger King UK’s recent tweet referencing an unknown coin that nobody in the community seems to be aware of.
The UK branch of the popular fastfood chain caused a stir last week when it tweeted about wanting an “office doge,” following an unusual request by a cryptocurrency user for “We need doge.”
The Dogecoin community immediately reacted to the tweet, resulting in a surge in the price of this memecoin.

As per the latest update on Coingecko, DOGE’s price has risen nearly 1.0% in the past 24 hours and 4.5% in the past seven days. The tweet from the fastfood giant caught the attention of Dogecoin enthusiasts, who had noticed the company’s earlier references to “Doge.”

Burger King’s recent discussions about DOGE have generated a lot of excitement, particularly among fans of the cryptocurrency who are hoping that the fastfood chain will start accepting their preferred digital currencies.
Burger King’s Interest in DOGE
In a move that sparked increased attention towards Dogecoin, Burger King Brazil made an exciting announcement in 2021 that its Dogpper dog snack would be available for purchase with the cryptocurrency. The fastfood giant went on to promote the product across the country through an advertisement, bringing further exposure to Dogecoin.

Later that same year, Burger King and Robinhood collaborated to offer US customers a crypto giveaway that included an impressive 20 Bitcoins, 200 Ether, and 2 million Dogecoins.
Despite these crypto-friendly initiatives, it remains uncertain whether Burger King UK plans to enable customers to buy meals with Dogecoin at its restaurants.
Twitter Users’ Love for DOGE
