Posting to Twitter, Nas X alerted fans:
“MONTERO (CMBYN) OUT THIS FRIDAY!!! I’m giving out $100,000 worth of Bitcoin !!! Quote this with your $cashtag and #CMBYN and I might give you some”
— nope ? (@LilNasX) March 23, 2021
That’s right — Lil Nas X is paying fans in Bitcoin who are promoting his new single, which is out March 26.
According to the fans who received funds, the musician is doling out .0001 coin at a time, or roughly $55 as of today.
The unconventional move caused the hashtag #CMBYN to trend on Twitter, which, we assume, was the point.
That’s certainly one way to get people talking!
