Want $10K in free Bitcoin? Take a look at Northwest Arkansas

The Northwest Arkansas Council is giving away Bitcoin, with a catch

Business leaders with the clear objective of promoting development in the region have decided to create the Northwest Arkansas Council. As part of its effort to achieve its mission, it has recently announced a crypto-incentive program, which it believes will be able to attract entrepreneurs and technology professionals to work remotely. According to the announcement shared yesterday by Nelson Peacock, president and CEO of the council, the area intends to seek to expand its roster of talent in the tech industry by offering $10,000 in Bitcoin (BTC), which translates to 0.23 BTC at the current price of $43,610.

Other incentives that have also been announced include membership to cultural and art facilities or a bicycle. The “Bitcoin and a Bike” program has a clear goal, to embrace professionals in blockchain-related fields.

All those who qualify according to the established criteria and are willing to live at least one year in Northwest Arkansas will be eligible to receive this crypto incentive from the program. It is presumed that this group of individuals would specifically be located near the cities of Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, and Bentonville.

“Northwest Arkansas is one of the fastest-growing regions in the country, and we’re now seeing more explosive growth in our tech sector,” said Peacock. “This expanded incentive offer not only embraces the growing trend toward the use of cryptocurrency as a payment option by employers, but also helps increase our pipeline of talent to benefit tech employers, startups, cities, local businesses, and the region overall.”

Requirements set so far include moving to the area within six months of acceptance, ability to work remotely, and two years of experience in their current position in the tech industry. Many reports have apparently said that the northwest Wonder State could be considered as an alternative to the growing tech hubs in the country.
