(CNN) — Chipotle is jumping into the bitcoin craze. Sort of.
No, the chain isn’t accepting the cryptocurrency as payment for its Mexican dishes. Instead, Chipotle is giving away $100,000 worth of bitcoin on Thursday to celebrate National Burrito Day.
The contest marks the first time a US restaurant chain has given away bitcoin, according to Chipotle.
To win, Chipotle fans can visit the website BurritosOrBitcoin.com launching Thursday to try to guess a valid six-digit code. Each player gets 10 tries during the contest, which runs from noon to 9 pm ET. Correct guesses could win up to $25,000 in bitcoin … or a free burrito, as Chipotle is also giving away $100,000 in food.
In total, 53 people could actually win the bitcoin: 50 fans will win $500 in the cryptocurrency, and 3 will win $25,000. And 10,000 fans will win one burrito.
As part of the campaign, Chipotle is partnering with Stefan Thomas, the San Francisco man who famously lost $220 million worth of bitcoin because he couldn’t remember the password to his digital wallet. He claims to have “made peace” with the monumental loss.
“If players are unsuccessful in their ten attempts and endure the same fate as Thomas, they may be surprised and delighted with a special offer from Chipotle,” the company said in a press release.
Chipotle confirmed to CNN Business that this isn’t an April Fools’ Day stunt, even though the contest is happening on the same day.
The “Bitcoin or Burritos” promotion is yet another example of bitcoin’s increasing mainstream appeal. Tesla now accepts bitcoin as payment for its vehicles, for example, and Uber and Mastercard also said they plan to start accepting bitcoin. One bitcoin was worth roughly $59,000 as of Tuesday morning.
Not that we all didn’t already know, but the niece of Donald Trump confirms he is a narcissist who was traumatized by his father who psychologically bullied him, according to her upcoming book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.
We all know #Trump is a dangerous man that wipes his rear on the Constitution daily, spews a never ending stream of lies, and wants to end democracy in America. Mary Trump tell of this and more in her 211-page book that highlights the family secrets and skeletons that the Trump family would rather keep hidden from the world.
Mary Trump’s book is being published by Simon & Schuster next week, ahead of schedule. In her book, she portrays Donald Trump as a cheater, liar, and talks about how he has paid his way through life, even going so far as paying another student to sit in on an entrance exam for him!
What does Donald Trump do in response? Stokes racial tensions, lies, denies science, redirects his faithful followers’ attention, and lies again and again about various data on the coronavirus that is devastating America. He has even gone so far as to go after people who are protesting peacefully, calling them thugs, rioters, and more.
Some of those in his inner circle/orbit have warned him of his use of racist vitriol and have rang the warning bell that 2016 was a different America than the America in 2020. Black Lives Matter ( #BlackLivesMatter ) has been gaining extensive support among the American people according to polling.[…]
