Each contestant must use a different method of payment to get from Toronto to Las Vegas in 7 days, with checkpoints and challenges along the way.
Payment methods are: Chip and pin, Bitcoin, Gold, Cash and Coins, and Contactless
It is only through a series of random connections that I became aware of this race. One of the contestants, Jessica Moorhouse, is a friend of mine and host of the Mo’ Money Podcast. She posted on social media about being the first Canadian to be selected to compete in the race.
Then I found out that the race was starting at the 3rd day of the SIBOS conference in Toronto – a conference that I just happened to be already attending!
So I tracked down the 5 contestants and chatted with all of them about the race, their assigned methods of payment, and how they were feeling at the beginning of this 7-day journey!
