Burrito Bowls Or Rolls? ‘Neither, Bitcoin!’
In honor of National Burrito Day, Chipotle is giving us all just one more reason to taco’ bout their delicious bowls, ‘dillas and ‘ritos. Realistically, we didn’t need any more incentives to order yet another Barbacoa Bowl this week, but now that Bitcoin is on the line, we may just have to buckle under pressure. 😉
Did Someone Say ‘Burritos And Bitcoin?’
Yes. As a matter of fact, someone did say it. That someone was Chipotle. Are you intrigued? We are. We are very intrigued. “Burritos and Bitcoin” in the same place sounds like our kind of fiesta! 🥳🎉🍾
Chipotle Chose Twitter To Break The Bitcoin News
At first, everyone was a little perplexed and rightfully so, where exactly do “Burritos and Bitcoin” cross paths? Well, a little further investigation into Chipotle’s link led us straight to here…
Here, We Learned The Rules Of Burritos Or Bitcoin
So the rules claim that each entry will consist of a chance to enter a six-digit code. If the code is a match, then you win burritos or Bitcoin. If the code is not a match, then you can go on to attempt the game up to ten times total.
So the way it plays out, 53 people could actually win the Bitcoin. $500 in cryptocurrency will go to 50 winners, and 3 winners will win $25,000 in cryptocurrency. 10,000 fans will win one very special Chipotle burrito.🌮🌯🍲
A Little Bitcoin Backstory…
The origins of the “Burritos or Bitcoin” game come from a true-life story almost as juicy as that spicy barbacoa we were talking about earlier. So, almost a decade ago, Ex-Ripple Chief Technology Officer, Stephan Thomas, lost a very important password. This particular password holds the key to a digital vault in which, Thomas was given 7,002 Bitcoins in exchange for a informative cryptocurrency video.
Now, This Guy Is In A Bit Of A Bitcoin Bind
At the time, these coins were only worth about $6 each. Fast forward to more than a few years later and here we are, with each Bitcoin being valued around $60,000 currently. Leaving, this guy, Stephan Thomas looking for a way to recover his fortune. This, my friends, is where Chipotle comes in…or does it?
Ok, well maybe the “Burritos or Bitcoin” game isn’t really a secret operation to unlock Stephan’s sealed Bitcoin vault but the very inspiration in itself is pretty freakin’ cool. A little organized madness in the name of financial freedom and free burritos?! DARE WE SAY, YES?!
LOL it sounds silly at first listen but this is as serious as National Burrito Day, my friends! The “Burritos or Bitcoin” Game will take place on April 1, 2021, but don’t worry it’s not an April Fool’s joke.
Chief Marketing Officer Chris Brandt offered insight;
“National Burrito Day is a huge moment for Chipotle as our fans traditionally flock to our restaurants and digital platforms to order their favorites,”
Give Bitcoin A Byte!
We read through the Rules of Gameplay, just to be sure there wasn’t anything in the fine print. No one wants to admit to falling victim to ta perfectly crafted, social media driven, April Fool’s joke, but we have all been there at some point or another. That being said, we triple checked, to save you the time. This is the real deal. It’s pretty much just that easy to enter for a chance to win and you know what winning means? Burritos. It means potential for burritos.
