Roger Ver And Brian Armstrong Chip In On How To Feed Chickens Using Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
How To Feed Chickens Using Bitcoin Cash
Coinbase co-founder, Brian Armstrong, recently caused a stir on Twitter when he posted that he fed chickens using cryptocurrencies. Indeed, a recent live stream aired on Twitch demonstrated how Bitcoin Cash users can feed chicken using zero-confirmation transactions. So far, the video has had over 11,000 views.
This unique project was created on October 25 by Spencer Lambert, a Bitcoin Cash hobbyist. To feed the fowls, users are required to deposit $0.5 worth of Bitcoin Cash. After the processing of this payment, a crypto-driven dispensing machine delivers worms and other feeds to the birds. Specifically, the dispenser is manufactured by Iozeta and runs on the Handcash application.
Originally, the Iozeta machine was intended for introducing the concept of digital currencies to friends. After a certain payment is sent to cryptocurrency wallet, the machine would dispense candy. The appliance accepts Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Dash. In this case, Spencer modified the machine by replacing candy with chicken feed. Later on, he started streaming videos of the machine’s operation on the Twitch video streaming platform.
The streams captured the attention of members of the Bitcoin Cash community, including Roger Ver, the CEO of Bitcoin.com. Roger admitted on Reddit that he had spent over $250 worth of BTC to feed the chickens. Another notable individual who fed the chickens is Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase crypto exchange. Overall, this project got a warm reception in the BCH community.
Another exciting use case for Bitcoin Cash is an app called Memochicken developed by Unwriter, a renowned BCH developer. Essentially, Memochicken is a platform that activates the chicken feeding mechanism created by Spencer Lambert. Memochicken accepts fiat deposits, looks up the destination address, checks the prevailing exchange rate on Coinbase, and finally sends $0.50 worth of BCH.
