Fox News Report Highlights Bitcoin Cash Proponent's Modern Day Scavenger Hunt

The anonymous Bitcoin Cash proponent called, ‘Bitcoin Man,’ has made the news once again, this time in Fresno California. Bitcoin Man was featured on a local Fox News report on December 11 for creating a “modern-day scavenger hunt” with bitcoin cash-loaded stickers hidden throughout the state.

Back in September, news.Bitcoin.com reported on an anonymous individual that distributed 100 pre-loaded bitcoin cash (BCH) stickers in Bakersfield California. One of the stickers also contained a golden sticker worth $500 in BCH. The scavenger hunt stickers loaded with bitcoin cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Man’s money-hunting contest, has managed to get featured by a few media outlets. Now Bitcoin Man is at it again and this time around, he visited Fresno California to disperse a number of BCH-loaded stickers in the region.

The Fresno bitcoin cash scavenger hunt was popular and one contest participant managed to find $1,000 in bitcoin cash by finding a golden ticket. The story was also featured on one of the Central Valley’s leading news outlets KMPH Fox 26 News Fresno.

Fox News Report Highlights Bitcoin Cash Proponent's Modern Day Scavenger Hunt

The news station’s accompanying video says: “People right here in Fresno are finding free money hidden by someone who calls himself ‘Bitcoin Man.’ We’ll show you how to get in on the growing treasure hunt.” The news anchor also detailed that the anonymous man “created a modern-day scavenger hunt leaving bitcoin cash prizes for people to find in cities all over California. The clues can be found on his Instagram page and this week Bitcoin Man came to Fresno.”

Further, Fox 26 Fresno reporters spoke with some of the local winners. “The man behind all of this says he’s doing this for two reasons,” a KMPH Fox 26 street reporter said. “The first is to help people struggling due to the coronavirus. The second is to teach people more about cryptocurrency like bitcoin, using these QR codes posted all around town,” she added. Adam Fisher, one of the scavenger hunt prize winners, told the reporter:

The easiest one thousand dollars, the luckiest thousand dollars. What [Bitcoin Man is] doing is so cool. And so I saw that he was in Fresno, and we watched the whole teaser video he did and it had a slight little shot of this [sign] right here.

Adam Fisher, one of the scavenger hunt prize winners found $1,000 in bitcoin cash (BCH) by finding a golden ticket.

Fisher simply scanned the golden ticket he found in Fresno with his Bitcoin.com Wallet. Another person interviewed by Fox 26 News also said it was a scavenger hunt for money basically. The lucky winner found some BCH-loaded QR codes in the Tower District. Nishea Balajadia found 30 dollars in bitcoin cash (BCH) and said it was a “cool kind of hope” that Bitcoin Man created with the scavenger hunt concept.

 

Balajadia further added that it was just fun to get out of the house. Following Balajadia’s statements, the Fox 26 reporter said the scavenger hunt for bitcoin cash was a “coronavirus friendly activity and a teachable moment.” This was because Balajadia never used cryptocurrency until she joined the bitcoin cash scavenger hunt in Fresno.

“All you need is Instagram and the Bitcoin.com Wallet app,” the reporter stressed during the Fox 26 news segment.

According to the KMPH report, Bitcoin Man said he plans to hide even more bitcoin cash across Fresno and other regions. All the bitcoin cash scavenger hunters have to do is download the noncustodial Bitcoin.com Wallet app and find the hidden QR codes. Bitcoin Man also revealed that he plans to do the scavenger hunt in every small city in California. He plans to give away a total of $40,000 in bitcoin cash, the KMPH Fox 26 news anchor concluded.
