Bakersfield Residents Win “Bitcoin”
A man that goes only by the name “Bitcoin Man of Bakersfield” placed stickers around the city whch held varying amounts of – wait for it – Bitcoin Cash. Is this Roger Ver trying to keep BCH alive? Oh well, his heart’s in the right place.
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Residents in Downtown may have noticed several Bitcoin cash stickers placed in random areas on Monday and Tuesday.
All the stickers gave directions on downloading the Bitcoin online cryptocurrency app and how to claim the amount on the sticker.
The man behind it all requests to remain anonymous and addresses himself as the “Bitcoin man of Bakersfield.”
The man told 23ABC News that he placed a $1,000 worth of the currency in various amounts on stickers, which residents claimed by scanning the barcode.
A sticker worth $500 worth of the currency was the grand prize and claimed Tuesday.
The man says he spends a lot of time in Bakersfield and that the purpose of all this was to spread awareness of governmental control over U.S. currency.
