Photo of Bitcoin beggar outside Dinkytown McDonald's goes viral
A photo of a man begging for Bitcoins outside the Dinkytown McDonald's is blowing up Reddit, with more than 500,000 views since it was posted yesterday.
The photo, visible above, nicely juxtaposes the tech-savvy beggar's "Every Bit Helps" sign with McDonald's plea for workers.
"Found a guy begging for bitcoins, wonder if he noticed the sign behind him," kingbot, the Reddit poster who published the photo, wrote.
We dropped kingbot a line in hopes of learning more about his viral shot but haven't heard back as this is published.
