Call me crazy, but I would take the free burrito. I don't know enough about Bitcoin, and have you ever had a Chipotle burrito? It is the bomb. My parents just had Chipotle for the first time this past weekend, I thought their heads were going to pop off they liked it so much.

In honor of National Burrito Day, this Thursday, April 1st, - Chipotle is giving $100,000 in free burritos and $100,000 in Bitcoin. According to the official press release, Chipotle is the first United States first restaurant brand to offer a cryptocurrency giveaway to consumers (fancy AF).

Here is the breakdown on the contest,

On National Burrito Day, Chipotle and Stefan Thomas, the Founder and CEO of Coil, will launch a new interactive game called "Burritos or Bitcoin." In a playful ode to Thomas's experience losing the login to his hard drive that stored $387 million in Bitcoin, Chipotle is encouraging fans to carry out a mock "chiptocurrency" rescue mission and crack the code on its digital wallet.

Does that make sense to you? Keep reading,

Each player will have ten (10) tries to guess a valid six-digit code for a chance to win a free burrito or up to $25,000 in Bitcoin. If players are unsuccessful in their ten attempts and endure the same fate as Thomas, they may be surprised and delighted with a special offer from Chipotle.


The contest officially goes live on April 1 at 9:00 AM PT and ends at 6:00 PM PT that same day. Fans can play "Burritos or Bitcoin" by visiting: BURRITOSORBITCOIN.COM.

According to Chipotle there is no purchase necessary to play, and the prize breakdown is as follows,

  • 10,000 fans will win one (1) free burrito
  • 50 fans will win $500 in Bitcoin
  • 3 fans will win $25,000 in Bitcoin

I will give it a whirl, why not? Win a burrito or buy a burrito - either way I will be eating one on National Burrito Day. I may even start celebrating today, I am suddenly craving a Chipotle steak burrito.
