Hello There! We are the BitHunt Team and we have a proposal for you.

Have you ever participated in a treasure hunt? How about one with bitcoin? In real life?
That's what I thought.

Now, what we want to do is run an entirely community funded REAL LIFE bitcoin hunt!
How would we do this? Well, this is how:
1) We ask you, the bitcoiners, to donate some BTC to our "Donation Wallet".
2) We transfer some or all of the funds out to a Paper Wallet that we will seal and hide somewhere in the GTA.
3) You, the bitcoiners, follow the hints we give on our twitter and facebook feeds to find the wallet.
4) Profit!

Simple as that! Have any questions? Ask away! But first, please read the FAQ below. Thanks!

FAQs:
Q) How do I know you won't steal the coins?
A) Well, our donation wallet is hosted on Coinbase, AND we will even tell you on our social feeds when we are transferring funds, so you can follow them if you'd like.

Q) How long does someone have to find the wallet?
A) We were planning on giving people 24-48h to locate it, after which we will transfer the funds back into the Donation Wallet for the next hunt.

Q) Where will the wallets be hidden?
A) All of the wallets will be hidden in public areas such as "Chinguacousy Park" (Brampton), "Evergreen Brick Works" (Toronto), "Erindale Park" (Mississauga) etc.

If you're still reading this, we have a survey at our website (http://bithunt.ml) that we would like you to take for us!

I read: "We keep 80% of the BTC for ourselves and put 20% in for the hunt."

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

Heh, no no. Honestly we would be keeping none of the BTC, just whatever we don't put into that hunt would go into the next one.

Says the person who registered yesterday and is asking for 'donations' today.
How about you route the coin through my address and, honestly, I will send all or some of it to you.

It sounds like a fun idea. If a full or Hero member were involved you might get a better response. In my head I keep seeing a bunch of pimple faced nerds fighting over a paper wallet and tearing it to shreds in the process.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I'm a good hour north of Toronto.

I think it's a good idea if legitimate.

Why not a park in Markham? May be more central to everyone in the GTA.
