Crypto might be down, but the Twitter crypto community is lit with McDonald’s bants.

Earlier today, the burger chain took a fun swipe at the crypto community when it asked how the community was faring. The tweet generated a lot of reactions, mostly in good humor.

President Bukele Uses McDonald’s Picture 

The value of most digital assets has fallen significantly lately, with Bitcoin leading the fall. But the falling prices haven’t stopped many in the crypto community from buying more. While buying, they’ve also taken to Twitter to make jokes about leaving their crypto careers to flipping burgers.

It all started when President El Salvador Nayib Bukele tweeted a photoshopped picture of him in a Macdonald’s uniform. The self-proclaimed CEO of El Salvador has been at the center of criticisms for his Bitcoin policy and governance style. But that hasn’t stopped him from buying the dip with an additional 410 Bitcoin at $15 million.

He further took a swipe at those criticizing his strategies, advising them to “invest a piece of your McDonald’s paycheck.” Then, as if that wasn’t enough, he added that they should flip more burgers.

Like Bukele, Like Saylor

Others who joined in on the fun include Michael Saylor. The Microstrategy CEO tweeted a picture of him wearing a McDonald’s cap. In another tweet, he jokingly wrote that he “may apply for night shift at @TheRealTahinis to stack more sats.”

Cardano founder Charles Hoskison also praised McDonald’s for getting involved. He tweeted that he was happy after the official page followed him. This followed his response to the initial tweet from the fast-food chain.

Other crypto community members also took the time to bring back old jokes about gas fees, McDonald’s service, and other related matters. Some even jokingly mentioned sending application letters to the fast-food chain and inquiring what to include. For most, it’s a good distraction from the stumbling prices of crypto assets.
