On Sunday May 30, the world’s first Bitcoin car finished 8th in the 105th annual Indianapolis 500, after leading the race for 32 laps.

The car was entered by Ed Carpenter Racing who forfeited all sponsors for this year’s race (run over 500 miles) in favour of promoting Bitcoin.

Below is a video of the car being prepared for the event.

There was a Bitcoin address in QR code added on the car itself, which was the primary address used for donations for the race.

It was Bitcoin Pizza Day last week, baking to support Bitcoin developers; now a car, racing for Bitcoin awareness! Exciting things are happening as Bitcoin keeps on coming; slowly but surely, creeping into our everyday lives, hidden in plain sight for those that are awake enough to see.
