According to the release, customers who download the bakkt app, buy some bitcoin and use it to buy food on Quiznos will receive $ 15 worth of BTC as a reward. However, the companies did not specify whether existing app users were also eligible for awards.

While initial deployment is limited to the Denver area, companies could potentially expand their new crypto payment service to other parts of the U.S.
