A Bitcoin exchange has launched a range of socks to educate wearers about crypto.
MtSocks – a play on the name Mt Gox – is the brainchild of the team behind the CoinCorner exchange and is intended to be a fun way to teach people about Bitcoin.
Every design is inspired by events in the industry, and every pair of socks comes with an information card that will teach the wearer about the Bitcoin industry.
MtSocks only accepts Bitcoin (BTC) as payment in a bid to encourage people to learn how Bitcoin can be used as a payment method.
And like Bitcoin, there is a finite supply. MtSocks will release a new design on the first day of every month, but the supply is limited.
The team also signs a message with your private key to prove the customer owns a Bitcoin address and that each pair bought has been sold exclusively by MtSocks.

MtSocks launched on October 31 2019 to coincide with the date Satoshi Nakamoto announced the creation of the Bitcoin ‘Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System’ via a whitepaper in 2008.
A spokesperson said: “We’ve been live nearly six weeks and the feedback so far has been great.
“We did exceptionally well over the Black Friday weekend – our socks make the perfect Secret Santa gift or stocking stuffer.”
There are three designs available – Bitcoin Not Blockchain, Bitcoin Roller Coaster Guy, and Bitcoin Wizard – with new designs coming in the new year.
