Bitcoin Roundup: ClearTax Experimenting With Bitcoins; Coinsecure Acquired

ClearTax, a startup which offers Income Tax Return e-Filing on its website, is giving away Bitcoins to its users as part of its referral program.

All a user has to do is refer friends and family to score some bitcoin.

“While we offer Rs. 20 mobile recharge to every user who refers another user, we offer three times that value in BTC (bitcoin). We are giving away $1 (Rs. 60) worth of Bitcoin for every successful referral! It’ll be interesting to see how many people are interested in Bitcoin vs a mobile recharge. We are also giving three times the value in Bitcoin. This for us is an experiment as we are very excited about Bitcoin in ClearTax. Savvy users will prefer to take bitcoin and they can trade it online or convert it to cash if they want!” [Archit Gupta, ClearTax]
