Bitcoin Wallets Being Hidden All Over San Francisco

/ 3 years ago


Last May someone began hiding envelopes of cash all over San Francisco, starting an internet sensation as people tried their hardest to find the locations. Now it seems the concept has gone digital as someone is now leaving Bitcoin wallets around the city, starting the whole internet craze all over again, in what is being called @SFHiddenBitcoin.

The wallets are aluminium cards with Bitcoin addresses and a private key on them. These can then be imported into the wallet of the person who finds the card, with a value of around $20 each. Of course without all cards being found yet, there is no way of knowing if there are larger values still hidden around the city.

As with the cash version, clues for the Bitcoin locations are being left on the Twitter account, once a wallet is found it gets announced on Twitter and people then wait for the next clue. However, some creative type decided it would be funny to hide one at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s house, so who knows what other random places these cards could turn up at.

If you’re in the San Francisco area and want to kill a few hours this weekend, follow the Twitter page and join the hunt here.
