The man behind the handle would not identify himself to Global News, only saying he is a “successful businessman” who was inspired by the person who started the craze in San Francisco.

“I am copying him really. I think it is a wonderful thing he came up with,” said the Vancouver benefactor. “It is a nice way to give back. The city [has been] very good to me. What a great opportunity and way for me to be able to do it.”

Clues are posted on Twitter about where the $100 bills will be hidden, and if you find it you are asked to tweet out your reward.
