Coinding is a new service that is launching soon. It promises to be a real world Bitcoin treasure hunt. Users find Bitcoin hiding around their city simply by travelling with their phone. The phone’s location is used to determine where the user is and apps will be available for Android and iOS. Since these Bitcoin will be given away for free, it’s unlikely that they’ll be worth much, but the point is to create a fun way for newbies to get into Bitcoin. Furthermore, the service promises to link to places that accept Bitcoin within one’s vicinity to help popularise the cryptocurrency. At the moment, you can sign up with your email address and select three places on the map where you think Bitcoin should be hidden.

If you would like more information about Coinding or want to suggest feedback, simply check out the Coinding reddit post.

Coinding certainly sounds promising, but we’ll just have to wait and see how it develops.
