That's pretty cool.Thanks Bloomberg!
Next time maybe they can try do it the other way around.
For some charity for instance.This would show how fast, simple and easy it is to raise some money from all over the world to support and help others.

I wonder if there's anyone here in this forum who can confirm that they we're able to get the Bitcoin Giveaway on Bloomberg. I've seen this kind of news in Facebook all day and some of them are just nicely edited news report looking video. I would not even try to scan that QR code.

Actually this giveaway was the last leg of a trivia that I published on bitcointalk forum Turkish section

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1362817.20

I gave all the clues over the week on the forum and my twitter account. I even published the method of sweeping a bitcoin by scanning a private key QR using mycelium application.

I just did not tell explicitly how the QR code would be published but guessing based on the clues was really easy.

Finally the key was published on live broadcast. And a bitcointalk forum member (hugoworld) proved he was the winner by signing a message and sending it to the trivia post.

I think you need to scan the code with a mobile wallet for example Copay and the private keys will be imported so you can send the coins to your main wallet.


Okay, but how do you do the last part. Where do you copy the private key in order to recieve it in your wallet?

The barcode is your private key when you scan this and swipe it into your wallet you will open whatever is in the wallet.

Finally! Thank you for the answer mate. In case of a blockchain.info wallett, is it import private key section?

I have to say that it is an interesting concept. However, only the people who already know Bitcoin will be able to claim it, so this doesn't look really attractive for me.

5 mbitc is nothing. But it sends out a good signal. Bitcoin transaction can be very fast and independent of banks.

interesting point.
but i think the purpose of this, as it is mentioned in OP is to show how easy it is to send bitcoin to others even on TV with just a barcode.

but i agree that this amount on the barcode is never going to go to a new bitcoin user because they are not going to have the slightest idea what to do with that barcode and even if they figure it out it is going to be too late because a hungry bitcoin veteran had already claimed it in a blinking of an eye.

During Bitcoin peak - at 1000 USD per Bitcoin or so - my country have a lot of news about Bitcoin. However, I do not think that there is such an "experiment" before. I do hope that my country will do something like Bloomberg sometime soon.

This is great news. I wonder when we can see this in the main bloomberg (english edition) so we get a lot of exposure. They sometimes invite people to talk about Bitcoin but seeing it live making a demonstration doing that is always way more attractive than whatever a Bitcoin enthusiast can explain about it.

Its nice to see a bitcoin giveaway on TV, normaly i only read that bitcoin was on tv for bad news. With only one giveaway they could give a bigger amount, 5 mbtc is very small for a tv program.

This is kinda good, but the main question is, how can someone and why would anyone starting using bitcoin? the only way to start earning bitcoin is to buy them, they are expensive, and the real use for them is a bit short... So we should make some friendly way to introduce people to bitcoin and convince them that it is good..

There are plenty of hard bitcoin fans that will claim any free coins out there for the taking, So it is not a surprise it was claimed very fast.
I like the idea of the show and it will definitely bring some needed attention of bitcoin to local audience.

Can someone translate the conversation from Turkish to English for us, or post a sub-titled version of it? ... So the Bitcoin address was posted in the

forum somewhere with clues to when the private key for that address will be revealed? Very nice idea... anyone want to do the same for the other

mainstream financial broadcasters?  Huh

That's interesting, I've always wondered how people noticed the Barcodes on Bitcoin videos and documentaries that have shared similar giveaways before with their viewers. It's nice to see Bloomberg pitching into the cryptocurrency sphere.
