Streamin' Garage Launches First Bitcoin Game Show
LOS ANGELES, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Streamin' Garage, an innovator in new media production and live streaming, today announced it is producing a live online bitcoin only game show, "Take My Bitcoins." Sponsored by Butterfly Labs, the leading provider of bitcoin mining technology, the first-of-its-kind game show will give away thousands of dollars per week in bitcoins.
Every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. PT, beginning April 3, 2014, "Take My Bitcoins" will put a new media spin on the old-school TV game show. Each week, a different celebrity co-host will challenge online contestants to games of knowledge and skill. Gameplay will incorporate a variety of social media, including live chat room, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram as well as call-ins via Skype and Google Voice. There is no limit to how many people can win. The games continue until the bitcoin wallet is empty.
"Streamin' Garage has always strived to break new ground in original online production," said Streamin' Garage founder, Mike Rotman. "Entering the innovative world of Bitcoin and combining it with a TV quality game show allows us to engage the audience in a whole new way. Being first in this arena continues with our goal of blurring the lines between TV and online content."
"We couldn't be more excited to sponsor this trailblazing event that will feature the first bitcoin miner ever to be used by a customer exclusively for game show prizes," said Jeff Ownby, VP of Marketing at Butterfly Labs. "Streamin' Garage is at the forefront of the new media world, and the ability to help them support an entirely new game show is a significant step in broadening awareness about bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general."
