Say what you will, at least the whoppercoins are backed by something that has survived the test of time, the whopper.




You cut the best part


Whopper coins being tied to whoppers is a one-way street. You can't just take some two week old whoppers to an ATM and feed the bread and patty into the machine to get whopper coins.


Idk that video of the Big Mac that never decomposed after being left out for months shows some compelling evedence in the other direction...


C'mon now, everyone knows that ATM machines prefer stray cats.


True, but at least the WhopperCoins are backed by food (on-demand food at that) which will always have value to the human race, thus be in demand and have some market value. Not sure if the same can be said for the ruble. As long as WhopperCoin can't hyperinflate, they may have something here. Haven't looked at WhopperCoin's issuance algorithm yet so no idea if that's the case.


Cash being tied to goldbars is a one-way street. You can't just take some two week old goldbars to an ATM and feed the goldbars into the machine to get cash.


dollar to whopper is also one way street


You can't tell me what I can't do!


Garnishing whopper wages only makes them more delicious.
