I entered a contest on twitter last month hosted by The Merkle. It was for a chance to win a Ledger Wallet. In real life I rarely enter contests, but for some reason I always do the RT contests on twitter. The ones where they ask you to follow and retweet a link for a chance to win something.

So I enter this contest and I swear to God; “The Dood” thinks to himself; ‘ You enter a ton of these, and never win anything. Probably fixed!” I kid you not, that was my exact thought as I hit the retweet button. A few days later I’m going through my twitter private messages and come across a message from “The Merkle” stating that I won the contest. YaY me!!! Triple exclamation marks because I’m super excited. So I can tell you now, these contests are real, or at least The Merkle abides!
So a few weeks later a priority mail box shows up in The Dood’s mailbox, and The Merkle sent The Dood some Bitcoin socks, a Bitcoin coin from runbitcoinrun.com… and … Drum roll please… A new Ledger Wallet! How fricken cool is that? Shouts out to The Merkle , now The Dood’s favorite place for bitcoin and fintech news! Here’s an image of the great prizes I won.
So the bitcoin socks are only for special occasions, I’ll probably rub the finish off the gold plated bitcoin coin as I watch the markets going up and down, and I can’t wait to find some time to setup the Ledger Wallet. I’ll be doing that sometime this week.
In the next couple weeks we can expect a review of the Ledger Wallet. Again I’d like to thank the great folks over at The Merkle for the awesome prizes! The Dood really appreciates it.
