NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE. 

We searched the web with relevant keywords but could not find any credible media report corroborating the viral claim. 

We searched for the viral tweet on McDonald’s Twitter account through Twitter advanced search but could not find any such tweet. 

Archived screen grabs of the account from May 19, the day the alleged tweet was sent, show no instances of the company saying it will not hire people who trade cryptocurrency.

We also searched McDonald’s website but could not find any policy banning people who buy, sell or trade cryptocurrency. Had such a large company instituted this hiring policy, media outlets likely would have reported on it, yet none have.

Speaking to Check Your Fact, McDonald’s replied that, “this is a fake post and not published from an official McDonald’s account.”

Thus, it is evident from the above information that McDonald’s has not published any such tweet that the company would not hire anyone who has held, traded or sold cryptocurrency. The viral claim is FALSE.
