Bitcoin Giveaway Brings College Students Into The Fold
The San Francisco-based bitcoin wallet provider has successfully given away free bitcoin to more than 20,000 college students.
CyptoCoins News reported that any student signing up for Coinbase would receive $10 worth of bitcoin.
Coinbase went the extra mile to ensure security by requesting students provide a phone number that could be verified.
Giving away free bitcoin to college students in order to encourage investment is clever, but not new.
Coinbase currently has over one million consumer wallets, 30,000 merchants, 5,000 API applications and U.S. bank integration.
