A new online-only restaurant in Dubai pays homage to the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE) with themed cuisine, packaging, and the possibility for customers to pay using cryptocurrency.
Doge Burger is a new virtual restaurant in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates’ most populated city.
The eatery bills itself as the “first online, Dogecoin-inspired e-commerce platform.” Rocket Kitchens, a virtual restaurant company, introduced Doge Burger. The chain’s first cryptocurrency-based hospitality idea is Doge Burger.
Burgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, fries, and a variety of other foods are available at the restaurant. Some of the highlights in their menu include doge burger chicken, doge burger beef, and special hot doge.
Sandwich wraps include inscriptions like “HODL,” “Wen Lambo,” and “Satoshi Nakamoto,” the name of Bitcoin’s enigmatic founder. There are also various rocket ships and phrases like “to the moon” on the packaging.
Bitcoin BTC, Ethereum ETH, Binance Coin BNB, Crypto.com Coin CRO, Ripple XRP, Tether USDT, Shiba Inu SHIB, and Dogecoin are among the cryptocurrencies that may be used to pay for orders.
Dogecoin and its popularity among celebrities
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, sent a tweet in January asking McDonald’s to accept DOGECOIN donations in exchange for him eating a Happy Meal on TV. Elon Musk’s statement was not only well-received, but numerous celebrities also weighed in to urge McDonald’s to embrace crypto payment options.
While Elon Musk’s initiative did not pan out as planned, another competing fast-food restaurant, MrBeast Burger, an American delivery-only fast-food chain founded by Jimmy Donaldson, gave Musk’s proposal a nod. If the meme-inspired coin received an RT, the corporation agreed to consider accepting it.
What is Doge Burger upto?
Doge Burger seeks to contribute to the UAE’s rising use of cryptocurrencies by accepting all major crypto coins. The creators invested in Dogecoin early on in its development and used the proceeds to completely support Doge Burger.
Doge Burger isn’t the first restaurant in the UAE to accept cryptocurrencies; several eateries began taking cryptocurrency payments as early as 2014.
The UAE appears to have been leaping into the future recently. MetaTerrace, a mixed-reality crypto club in the DIFC, has recently launched as a destination for Dubai’s blockchain community as well as nightlife fans.
