I have an account with blockchain.com that I don't use.
Today, I got an email from them saying they were doing a XLM (a crypto currency) airdrop (free tokens) that I needed to finish my identity verification to receive.
So, as all my details were already there, all I needed to do was send them a selfie.
It was the first time in my life someone paid me $25 for a picture of my face 😂
Obviously this is a marketing stunt but $25 for just sending them a picture of my face was pretty cool :)
@hugo That's a pretty unique marketing stunt, and it worked! That deserves some kudos 🎉
@hugo yep, probably. But I exchanged it to Bitcoin and moved it to another wallet, I could just take it out to my bank account right now and I would get the $25. That's real enough for me :)
