The exhibit hall at the TNABC event was filled with several companies and attendees checking out the latest devices and platforms. The presentation that got the most attention was from Bitcoin.com, which gave away golden ticket scratch-offs loaded with Bitcoin Cash. Participants were required to download the Badger Wallet, and then swipe their QR codes on the cards to reveal their BCH (Bitcoin Cash) rewards. Those that won had to join a special Telegram group which was created by Bitcoin.com and post their SLP address. When the conference resumes today, those who swiped their golden tickets will receive a unique SLP-based Miami Conference tokens via airdrop for taking part in the event.
