Cryptocurrency user Brad Mills took Halloween to a new level this year, putting Bitcoin cards in a candy box for a few lucky children.
Adding in $100 Bitcoin wallet cards for children to collect when trick or treating, Mills shows some of the children’s reactions to the cards. While some “Zoomers” (referring to the younger generation growing up with video platform Zoom as a means to communicate as a result of the global pandemic) didn’t know what Bitcoin was, a few of them were enthused to come across the wallet card.
With each card worth approximately $100 USD – or 0.007 Bitcoin – the value stands in the investment, and Bitcoin price rises, so will the value of their treat.
Bitcoin analyst and market statistician Willy Woo noted that this will become significant at a time when Bitcoin supply hits its cap and the cryptocurrency holds demand. The lesson about the scarcity of Bitcoin in advance might prove a useful one to learn sooner rather than later.
Bitcoin for children
While Bitcoin and the blockchain-based digital currencies aren’t regulated against minors in some countries, most exchanges and trading platforms require verification that users are over 18. This is likely because trading Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies with the volatility of the market can be likened to gambling, which is only possible when a person is of legal age.
The children with cryptocurrency can still store their tokens, keeping their cards physically safe, or make use of Bitcoin ATMs or exchanges without age regulations.
