Today (April 1) is National Burrito Day in the U.S. It is also April Fool’s Day, which means a day full of practical jokes and hoaxes. However, what is tasty and not a joking matter is the total crypto market cap, which is nearing $2 trillion today.
Data by TradingView shows that on crypto exchange Bitstamp, the Bitcoin price hit $59,490, which is currently today’s intraday high, at 08:27 UTC.
According to data by CryptoCompare, currently (as of 11:01 UTC), Bitcoin is trading around $58,534, up 0.88% in the past 24-hour period; as for the year-to-date (YTD) period, Bitcoin has gone up 102.03% vs USD. Bitcoin’s market cap is approximately $1.09 trillion, the total market cap is around $1.92 trillion, which means that BTC Dominance is at 57%.
On Tuesday (March 30), Mexican restaurant chain Chipotle sent out this pair of tweets tweet:
A few minutes earlier, Chipotle had issued a press release, in which it announced that “it will give away $100,000 in free burritos and $100,000 in Bitcoin to celebrate National Burrito Day.” It also pointed out this would make it “the first U.S. restaurant brand to offer a cryptocurrency giveaway to consumers.”
Apparently, Chipotle, in partnership with former Ripple CTO Stefan Thomas (currently Founder and CEO of Coil), will launch a new interactive game called ‘Burritos or Bitcoin‘. The idea is for fans to “carry out a mock ‘chiptocurrency’ rescue mission and crack the code on its digital wallet.” It seems that each player will have 10 tries to “guess a valid six-digit code for a chance to win a free burrito or up to $25,000 in Bitcoin.”
The contest, which is available only in the U.S., goes live today (April 1) at 09:00 PT and ends at 6:00pm.
