Mr. Robot fans can visit the “Bank of E” at San Diego Comic-Con and receive their own E Corp card, loaded with exclusive crypto-currency!

As any SDCC-er knows, some of the most entertaining and imaginative experiences can be found in San Diego’s Gaslamp District, and one of the most popular off-site activations at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 is hosted by Mr. Robot.

Not only are you transported into the “Bank Of E” at 327 4th Ave., but you also receive your own E Corp banking card, which can help you acquire some amazing treats from other downtown retailers! Next door is the Red Wheelbarrow BBQ, where you can get a BBQ sandwich, chips, water and a milkshake (without having to spend any currency off of your E Corp card)!

According to USA Network, the E Corp card is “loaded with exclusive crypto-currency, which can be used throughout downtown for exclusive food, drinks, and other specials, plus access to the shows infamous Red Wheelbarrow BBQ.”

We ventured into the hacked bank (which also offers fans of the series opportunities to solve clues and hints) to learn more about the experience and to hunt for Season 3 spoilers! And seriously, the Easter eggs from the show are no joke. If you’re able to solve the puzzle, you’ll be taken on an entirely new journey into the world of Mr. Robot, and it was EPIC. 

A new season of Mr. Robot will premiere this October on USA Network! Be sure to follow the series on Twitter for the latest news and info about the series.
