Dear 99bitcoins.com,

I own this phone number and a few other Bitcoin “things” that could be GREAT marketing tools. I like to think of them as pieces of Cheese to attract many, many mice. I write wondering how to maximize these pieces of cheese because I know 0, “Nada”, “zilch” about Bit Coin and would appreciate anything you can say to help me. I would not know what to do with a U Haul full of Bit Coins. Can you suggest something? The number is for sale & the other pieces of cheese. I invite you to call to prove. Best, Greg

Hi Greg,
That’s pretty interesting! Most of the good URLs relating to Bitcoin have already been snapped up but I never even considered phone numbers. I think you could do something with it for sure, but you should probably learn about Bitcoin first. Our Bitcoin Beginner’s Course, found under the Help tab up top is a great starting place – it’s a free series of short and to-the-point videos.
How exactly you’d go about monetising the number I have no idea. One potential problem I see is that Bitcoin addresses are long strings of random characters which are really troublesome to transmit verbally over a phone – transcription errors are very likely. It seems to me like you should advertise the number and have it redirect people to a website of some kind… Bitcoin is very much a thing of the internet.
I’d say once you get a better understanding of Bitcoin, you’ll be in a better place to brainstorm ways to use that number. I’m afraid I can’t think of any good ones right now but where there’s a will there’s a way…
