Business

On April 1, National Burrito Day, Chipotle will give away $100,000 in free burritos and $100,000 in Bitcoin. This occasion makes Chipotle the first U.S. restaurant brand to offer a cryptocurrency giveaway to consumers.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Nexstar) – Chipotle is giving away $100,000 worth of burritos and Bitcoin in celebration of National Burrito Day, but you’ll have to play to snag a freebie.

Chipotle says the contest is the first time a restaurant brand has given away cryptocurrency.

Ten thousand people will win one free burrito, 50 will win $500 worth of Bitcoin and three lucky individuals will get $25,000 in Bitcoin, the company said in a press release.

To win, you must visit this website when it goes live Thursday, and then you’ll have ten chances to guess a six-digit code. The contest ends at 9 p.m. EDT.

“If players are unsuccessful in their 10 attempts and endure … they may be surprised and delighted with a special offer from Chipotle,” the release said.

The game was inspired by Stefan Thomas, the founder and CEO of Coil, who famously can’t remember the passcode to a hard drive that stores $387 million in Bitcoin.

One Bitcoin is currently worth $58,628.
