Dogecoin-Themed Hot Dogs Pack Gets $15,000 in Auction

Dogecoin-Themed Hot Dogs Pack Gets $15,000 in Auction
  • Oscar Mayer’s Dogecoin-themed hot dogs auctioned for $15,000 on eBay Inc.
  • The auction winner will receive a 10-pack of hot dogs featuring the Shiba Inu image.
  • The auction received a total of 76 bids.

Kraft Heinz Co. subsidiary Oscar Mayer’s Dogecoin-themed hot dogs were auctioned for $15,000 on eBay Inc. Earlier today, Oscar Mayer posted on Twitter that the “Hot Doge Weiners” raised a total of $15,001. The auction has now closed.

The most expensive hot dog previously sold for $169 in 2014, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

The auction winner will receive the “one-of-a-kind” 10-pack of hot dogs featuring the Shiba Inu image. Moreover, the cash equivalent to 20,000 Dogecoins – worth about $4,800 at the time of writing, will also be given.

Overall, the auction received a total of 76 bids, which were announced by Oscar Mayer last week.

Dogecoin’s acceptance as a payment alternative by firms has also gained momentum this year.

Oscar Mayer is not the first firm to profit from dogecoin’s popularity. Earlier this year, Slim Jim, a smoked meat purveyor, created  a dogecoin-themed marketing drive that sent dogecoin prices to a new all-time high.

As per a Twitter post last week, Burger King Brazil accepts the meme cryptocurrency as a payment method to purchase Dogpper, a dog snack it recently introduced. Restaurant Brands International Inc owns the “Burger King” brand.

Kraft Heinz shares closed 0.7% higher in Friday’s trading at $37.20. Dogecoin is down 11.77% during the last 24 hours, trading at $0.237 at press time.
