Kicking off the countdown to the Oct. 18 digital and DVD release of the heist thriller Bitcon, Mill Creek Entertainment (on behalf of the producers) has announced the “Steal My Bitcoin” trivia sweepstakes.
On Oct. 4, and over the following eight weeks, participants can go to www.StealMyBitcoin.com and the film’s social media profiles to access trivia questions or activities to complete. Each correct answer or completed action results in a sweepstakes entry for a random drawing. The final question will be released on Nov. 2, with the contest officially ending Nov. 9.
One winner will get the passphrase to a cryptocurrency wallet that contains a secret stash of Bitcoin worth thousands of dollars. And just like the movie, the value of Bitcoin can be quite unpredictable, so one lucky winner could walk away with more or less depending on when they cash out.
In Bitcon, a reformed criminal and a cunning young woman are forced to work together when a hard drive containing $800,000 of cryptocurrency goes missing and they’re pulled back into an underground of money launderers and criminals. Things get much more perilous when the value of crypto suddenly doubles and the original owners of the drive will stop at nothing to find it.
The film stars Jeremy Davies (Twister, TV’s “Lost,” Saving Private Ryan), Tom Cavanagh (TV’s “Scrubs,” “Ed,” “The Flash”), Noah Anderson (Realm of Shadows, Broken Cross), Ella Ma (Bridge and Tunnel) and Frank Whaley (Field of Dreams, Pulp Fiction), and is directed by Matt Osterman (400 Days, Hover)
Complete terms and conditions for the sweepstakes are here. The winner will be announced on Nov. 9.
