A one-of-a-kind pack of Hot DOGE wieners is being auctioned by Oscar Mayer, a renowned meat processing company in the United States.
The company announced the news in a tweet on August 4, stating that the pack contains ten sausages and is themed after the Dogecoin (DOGE/USD) cryptocurrency.
The pack is said to have the monetary equivalent of 10,000 DOGE, and interested buyers can place a bid on eBay. Oscar Mayer wrote in a tweet,
The auction began yesterday and will last through August 7. The auction, however, has been temporarily halted by the corporation. Crypto adopters, according to Oscar Mayer, made massive bids in such a short period of time.
As a result, the corporation decided to temporarily disable the link. Oscar Mayer went on to say that the link would be restored shortly, but he didn’t say “when”.
People gone mad for buying the limited edition hot-DOGE pack and continuously tagged Oscar Mayer in their tweets.
Everyone praised the charity’s noble cause.
A user wrote that “We need more of it” on twitter as the auction drops.
