In celebration of the Big Mac's 50th birthday, the fast-food chain has announced a limited edition cryptocurrency: MacCoin.
According to Express.co.uk, McDonald's eaters can grab their MacCoins from any McDonald's store in America to spend on a free Big Mac. While the offer will run until the end of the year, there is still a limited supply of the tokens.
More than 14,000 McDonalds restaurants will be taking part in the celebration of one of the world’s most famous burgers, originally launched in 1968 and credited with McDonalds' worldwide success. Now might be a good time for the company to branch out, as sales revenue has subsided over the last few years
McDonalds fans will be able to secure their MacCoin from August 2. You may then use MacCoin to buy another Big Mac at any participating McDonalds restaurant, meaning that the price of a MacCoin will be the same as the price for a Big Mac in your area.
McDonalds has stated that over 6.2 million MacCoins will be available across the United States from Thursday, and the offer will run until year’s end or until the coins run out. Additionally, the fast food chain announced that there will be five unique designs to represent each decade of the burger.
