Hong Kong residents who happened to be on Fuk Wa Street in Sham Shui Po at the right time experienced some unprecedented luck when someone dumped a bag of cash off the roof of a skyscraper. It was a literal money shower, with HKD 100 bills (worth USD 13) raining down from the sky. The photo of the money storm can be seen at this link; it was obviously a huge bag of cash. Further, the police allege that this was caused by a cryptocurrency enthusiast.
Wong Ching-kit, aka Coin Young Master, runs the Epoch Cryptocurrency Facebook page where a live stream of the money shower was posted. A man dressed in a black hoodie says “I hope everyone here will pay attention to this important event” before commencing to dump the cash off the roof. Coin Young Master denies doing this, perhaps since police appear to be trying to charge whoever was behind the money shower with a crime.
Maybe this falls under littering or disrupting traffic. Indeed, the cash landed on a busy street and people were scrambling to collect it. Many were successful at getting some money, but then the police showed up and told everyone to stop, and collected HKD 5,000 for themselves. No one was arrested.
If this incident really was masterminded by a cryptocurrency enthusiast as the police allege, then it is truly poetic. Diehard cryptocurrency enthusiasts believe fiat money is worthless, so might as well throw it off the roof.
