Bitcoin IRA offers free bitcoins in New York City to educate public on digital currency
Bitcoin IRA (Individual Retirement Account) that enhances individuals’ returns by helping them invest in bitcoin, has distributed free bitcoins in New York City on 17th February 2017, in a move to educate the public on the potentials of bitcoin in a rewarding way.
The goal of the event was to invite media, the general public, residents, and passers-by to visit a Bitcoin IRA display truck to learn about the digital currency and be rewarded for getting involved. The trucks were deployed at Zuccotti Park, and other truck TBD based on demand via Twitter.
“The (bitcoin) display trucks will flash quotes by prominent technology leaders on the power of bitcoin,” the release stated.
Last August, Bitcoin IRA offered investors a limited-time rebate of 1% in real silver for each new account in order to commemorate its milestone of exceeding $500,000 in total investments since its launch in June.
The company is approved to allow any American invest in bitcoin and either pay no taxes going in standard IRA or no taxes many years down the road, even of bitcoin price surges from its current price to $10,000 or more in the future. This has been compelling for millennials who are particularly 30-50 years away from retirement.
