I Gave People In The Office Some Bitcoin

So over the last few weeks I have given about 15 people in my office some BTC. All on paper wallets, laminated. Told them that there is a couple bucks worth of BTC on each wallet. I told them to put it somewhere safe and one day, when the time is right to them, pull it out and use it. Some looked at me like I am nuts, some thanked me, some have been asking me questions everyday since. Some have asked me how to get the money off, I tell them "you have to figure it out for yourself" every time I get a question I tell them to try to learn how to answer it themselves. It's been fun.

It has certainly gotten 15 new people intrigued, started a lot of conversation and two of them have gone down the rabbit hole hard, one sending me links at 11:30 pm on Sat night "Check this out" with a link. I love it.
