Mogo begins bitcoin contest
Vancouver-based financial technology company Mogo has begun a contest promotion in support of a new service called MogoCrypto, a bitcoin cryptocurrency exchange. During the four-month contest, the company will give away one bitcoin per month to a randomly-chosen new or existing Mogo customer. Consumers can enter the contest online at <http://www.mogo.ca/mogo-crypto>. At the time of writing, one bitcoin is worth approximately $16,000.
"Bitcoin is one of the most exciting new innovations in our lifetime and to celebrate the upcoming launch of our MogoCrypto account, we're giving Canadians a chance to win one," said David Feller, CEO of Mogo. "In addition, beginning in 2018, we will offer members the ability to easily buy and sell bitcoin through their MogoAccount. We believe that for the average Canadian, buying bitcoin today can be complicated, intimidating and costly, but it shouldn't be that difficult. We're creating a simple and trusted way for Canadians to add it to their financial holdings, leveraging our technology platform to provide a great user experience just as we have for other financial products."
