Bought 1,500 bitcoin in 2011 for $2.87 each. I will pick 5 random people who retweet this and give one to each of you. Merry Christmas. 🎅 #Bitcoin

Well, it appears that one Travis Weaver (@TravWeav) has lost his mind over the holiday season and Bitcoin’s latest price surge. Bitcoin is currently trading at just shy of $19,000 USD at the moment. It is clear that this stunt has driven up the activity on his tweet, and his Twitter profile. The question is, will he do it. At the price he paid for the coins, he is really only giving away $15 total, but the value of 5 coins is roughly $100,000 and could be higher by the time he makes the transaction. It will be interesting to see if the holiday spirit moves Travis to hold true to his promise and deliver some holiday cheer to some of his Twitter fan, new and old.
Full disclosure: Yes, I did retweet!
