Through these partnerships, The Bitcoin Company will be able to grow its app to provide Plebs with everything they cannot receive from legacy banking systems. The Bitcoin Company makes it easy for Plebs to start using bitcoin in everyday purchases.
They are now heading to the Bitcoin Conference where they will make even more announcements. Give out some cool swag and they are even running a cool bitcoin scavenger hunt. Be on the look out around the conference for the above honey badger sticker. If you find one NFC tap it with your phone and it will load up your BC app with cold hard sats.
✌️See you in Miami Plebs.
