    The sweepstakes runs through the end of July.

    Chipotle Mexican Grill announced it is launching a new interactive game called "Buy The Dip" that will give away more than $200,000 in free crypto as well as promo codes for 1-cent guac and 1-cent Queso Blanco through July 31, National Avocado Day.

    Starting at 10am PT today, fans can access the "Buy The Dip" game by visiting: www.chipotlebuythedip.xyz. The game will be open from 10am PT to 6pm PT each day through Sunday, July 31.

    Crypto at Chipotle

    Chipotle now accepts digital currency, including cryptocurrency, nationwide through a partnership with Flexa, the global leader in pure-digital payments. Guests can use 98 different digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Avalanche, Solana, and Dogecoin, to pay for their real food at Chipotle with a Flexa-enabled app. Chipotle first immersed itself in the crypto space in April of 2021 when it became the first U.S. restaurant brand to launch a cryptocurrency giveaway through its "Burritos or Bitcoin" promotion, which dished out $100,000 in Bitcoin to celebrate National Burrito Day.

    "We want to build the next generation of Chipotle fandom by connecting with the Web3 community," says Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. "We're excited to bring positivity to the crypto conversation by empowering fans to 'Buy The Dip.'"
