Walmart Offers Bitcoin Milk Chocolate Coins to Buy at Low Price of $1
There are those who are popular in the bitcoin community, especially on platforms such as ‘Crypto Twitter'. A well-known commentator and bitcoin-industry follower named “The Crypto Dog” recently posted something quite interesting about bitcoin and it doesn’t have to do with the standard news story, bitcoin predictions, or the industry. Rather, the post identified that Walmart is now selling “bitcoin milk chocolate coins.”
The chocolate coin product features the individual coins in gold foil and the yellow mesh wrapping. Better yet, for those who are interested in buying these bitcoin milk chocolate coins may be able to find them at their local Walmart. And hopefully they taste delicious as well. Finally, it’s a great gift for those who failed to purchase actual bitcoins. At least with these, everyone can have some form of bitcoin, even if it is a much less valuable and hopefully tasty type of coin.

What does this mean for bitcoin's adoption and growth? Any exposure is good exposure if you are bitcoin's case right now right?
Some on crypto twitter have implied this is a mock up from Walmart and mainstream industry giants to predict bitcoin is going to $1 – others note is it just your everyday friendly neighborhood everything store just selling the trends with no end game in sight. By offering $1 bitcoin milk chocolate coins at a one of a kind low price, this is good exposure no matter what way you melt it as bitcoin looks like it has no signs of slowing down despite a tough bear market endured.
At the end of the day, this exposure is good more than ever bad for bitcoin. Bitcoin will be here for many more moons to come. Now lets see if Walmart accepts bitcoin for their coveted milk chocolate coins soon or a possible WalmartCoin is next.
They sure have gone after the blockchain technology benefits for business with multiple patents, but it remains to see if DLT's greatest and strongest gift will truly be a new financial frontier led by a virtual currency known as Bitcoin.
