Um, you've lost me on that one @woodpeck. What bid profits? "Plus codes are free. There are no licensing fees or other costs. The technology is open-sourced." This isn't W3W!

As @drinckes says: It takes a lot of money to countries to go about naming all their roads. Plus codes is available for free now (and always) and it doesn't prevent a government from naming all their roads and creating a postal address system when time and money allows.
