    A college student quickly made over $24,000 just by waving this sign on TV.

    Here's the deal: On ESPN's "College GameDay" (an ESPN college football show that's filmed at a different college campus each week) some student held the above sign that has both the Bitcoin logo and a QR code.
    On Reddit, Bitcoin fans managed to enhance the QR code from the screen in order to identify his wallet, so that people could donate money to him.

    The image made it onto the front page of Reddit and quickly spread across the Bitcoin community. The guy received 100 transactions totalling more than 22 bitcoins. At current prices above $1,100 per bitcoin, the kid has made over $24,000.
