Australia: Bitcoin for Those Who Get COVID-19 Vaccine

• Crypto Potato

The Australian entrepreneur Fred Schebesta said he would give away $5 worth of bitcoin to locals who have had a COVID-19 vaccine and those who will get it in the future. Considering Australia's population, he would have to distribute $104 million (around 75 million USD) if everyone takes advantage of the offer.

'Get Vaxxed Baby, And Get Your Bitcoin'

Fred Schebesta – the co-founder of the financial comparison website Finder – revealed his plans to hand over $5 worth of bitcoin to Australians who have taken a coronavirus jab since February. The entrepreneur added that those who are about to get a vaccine would also benefit from his offer:

"I've had this crazy idea right now – I've never spoken about this. We're going to give everyone in Australia who gets vaccinated $5 of Bitcoin. Get vaxxed baby, and get your Bitcoin baby as well."
