A boy in a white suit was the first to meticulously search the box before telling his group of friends, “I just got a $ 100 Bitcoin gift card!”
Someone else in the group picked up the other card from the candy pile, repeatedly clapping “I have Bitcoin!” I have Bitcoin! Leaving one of the two remaining kids in chicken and sloth costumes to come back empty-handed before asking, “What’s a Bitcoin?” The Mills family later given a few more BTC cards to a group of visiting girls who had heard of the crypto giveaway.

While minors are not specifically excluded from HODLing or cryptocurrency trading in certain countries, many exchanges still require verification to ensure their users are over 18. Since the children in Mills’ video are in Canada, they have access to Bitcoin ATMs, but most likely not local regulated exchanges to deposit their BTC or exchange it for fiat.
While some of the kids involved don’t understand the coins, the feedback from the crypto community has been positive, with many Twitter users stating it was a good lesson in scarcity.
“It sounds historic,” he told me Crypto-statistician Willy Woo. “When these kids come to power, there will only be 0.002 BTC per person. ”
Other Good Samaritans donated cryptocurrency apparently in an attempt to promote adoption. Cointelegraph reported in September that an anonymous benefactor had distributed more than $ 1,000 in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in the California town of Bakersfield “to educate” “nocoiners” and “newcoiners.”
