Ukrainian Cryptocurrency Enthusiasts Give Bitcoins Away to Cafe and Store Customers

News and Analysis

A campaign aimed at popularization of cryptocurrencies kicked off in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, on February 10.

Any customer of local natural goods store, which accepts Bitcoin already, and customers of a local cafe, who had made a purchase for more than 100 hryvnias ($3.86 at the time of writing), will get a symbolic one-dollar-worth bitcoin bonus.

Bonus “coins” have an activation code, which the campaign participants may enter on the dedicated website to get a corresponding bitcoin transaction to their wallets.

The campaign’s organizers expect the bonuses to be spent on mobile account topping up, purchasing cinema tickets, or other goods or services.

The campaign runs upon an initiative of Ukrainian bitcoin enthusiast Oles Slobodenyuk, who had earlier organized a campaign for raising bitcoin awareness, #takemybitcoin.
