A mysterious man started giving away Bitcoin Cash in Bakersfield, California according to the latest reports that we have in our bitcoin cash latest news.
Bakersfield residents started getting serious of stickers across the city which can be seen on posts, poles, sidewalks, and subways. The stickers have a QR code which if you scan It, you will get a sum of Bitcoin Cash. A local resident under the name Indiana London said:
“I called the news and then I sent the bitcoin app for their contact information and email saying hey I just got this weird payment. I scanned it on a pole which is kind of sketchy.”
The mysterious man who is the self-proclaimed Bitcoin man operates via a public Instagram account where the claims to be giving away $1000 in Bitcoin cash in a hidden QR code in plain sight. The stunt seems to be a promotion by bitcoin.com in order to try and raise the interest around its wallet services and BCHThe supports of BCH believe this to be the superior version of the biggest cryptocurrency so the person behind this scavenger hunt calls himself the Bitcoin man and not the Bitcoin Cash man.
The users that are lucky enough to stumble upon these QR codes will receive Bitcoin Cash coins, not BTC regardless of the claims of giving away BTC. Regardless of the personal choice of the users between BTC and BCH, free cryptocurrency is still free cryptocurrency and the residents of Bakersfield could claim a piece of the $1000 pie. Still for everyone that learned about this QR hunt or they saw it in person or via the local news, and remained skeptical, they have the total right to do so. The crypto market has been at the center of several high profile scams recently.
