    "Let The Bit Drop" Campaign: Dominica to Be the First "Bitcoin Nation"

    70,000 residents will be given BTC in 2015 and the infrastructure to send them easily with old-school SMS text messaging via Coinapult.

    Coinapult was started by the creator of Satoshi Dice. (This guy has 6 figures of BTC and he was a NH Free Stater, I think?)
