During a recent Fox News TV show aired last week, there was a special on a man who is participating in a digital treasure hunt in the form of QR codes containing hundreds of Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
Last September, a man who calls himself Bitcoin Man created 100 stickers each containing $100 in Bitcoin Cash and a $500 sticker, the so-called golden sticker.
These stickers were affixed in downtown Bakersfield, California, and all those who scanned the QR code obtained the corresponding BCH, which was made possible by a function to make QR codes as gift cards.
This event sparked the interest of the local media who reported the news and kickstarted the hunt for all 100 stickers scattered throughout the city, as if it were a real crypto treasure hunt.
As if that wasn’t enough, the anonymous benefactor decided to repeat the event and this time the designated city was Fresno, also in California. For this treasure hunt, as many as 100 stickers were scattered, each with 100 dollars in BCH, and this time the golden sticker contained as much as 1000 dollars in BCH, almost 4 Bitcoin Cash.
A number of people have already scanned the relevant QR codes for as many winners, once again drawing the attention of local media who interviewed some of the winners, including Adam Fisher, who found the $1000 sticker and said he will use it to buy Christmas presents.
From what can be learned on various social media, this anonymous donor plans to donate a total of $40,000 through this form of promotion in different cities in order to spread the adoption of Bitcoin Cash.
The next time you find a QR code in the streets, it might hold some nice surprises in store.
