CBC KW sends Bitcoin over the airwaves

CBC KW sends Bitcoin over the airwaves

On The Morning Edition, CBC Kitchener-Waterloo was able to successfully transmit Bitcoin over radio waves.

This makes what is believed to be the first known transmission of the digital currency by a public radio station. 

A series of beeps were played over the air, and listeners were asked to use an app known as chirp.io to decipher a code produced by the sound. 

Chris Skory of Rockland County, New York was the winning recipient, and unlocked 0.05 Bitcoin worth about $40. The Bitcoin was donated by Waterloo start-up Tinkercoin and a local Bitcoin enthusiast.  

“I did not think that I was going to get it at all,” said Skory. “I figured there was going to be some pretty stiff competition out there.”
