What’s for today? Solve Bitcoin puzzles.
Adding a twist to its activities, eighteen housemates from Nigeria Big Brother pushed their daily tasks out of solving a bitcoin quiz.
The participants’ had to crack their brains to know’s who can adapt to cryptocurrencies. The rules are: they had to tell the audience some of the use for bitcoin, including airtime and top-up and online payments.
Some of the specific questions include “what a bitcoin wallet is? or how is the price of bitcoin determined?” Another part of the challenge is to name the type five leading cryptocurrencies and make them draw a sample of a bitcoin wallet, which added fun to the game.
Besides, housemates are also tasked to create original radio jingles.
The challenge is sponsored by Patricia, a cryptocurrency exchange operating in Nigeria and Ghaha, who gave out $500 worth of BTC load.
