    MacCoin: McDonald’s Introduces Global Big Mac Currency (Video)

    The Big Mac turns 50 this year, and McDonald’s isn’t exactly going for minimal, tasteful vibes in celebrating the iconic sandwich’s birthday. Instead, it’s an all-out marketing bonanza, culminating in the introduction of a “global currency” called MacCoin. No, it’s not a cryptocurrency, even though it’s clearly meant to evoke that concept.

    It is officially July, which means we have entered the sweltering dog days of summer in the western hemisphere.
