After Bitcoins, MacCoin is the new global currency coming our way and it’s going to be a real deal for foodies as it is going to be the first ever food currency!
Mc Donalds released a new currency on January 17th called the MacCoin. The coins are valued at one dollar and can be spent at retailers including Whole Foods, Nordstrom, and Banana Republic. For every MacCoin used, McDonalds will give one dollar to charity of up to $1M in total donations each year. So you can do your good deed by purchasing some fun clothes or tasty food while also giving back in a meaningful way.
The real coins may be used to redeem a free Big Mac, a nod towards bitcoin. The coins were distributed at select McDonald's establishments in more than 50 countries and came in five different styles.
