Can You Solve This Bitcoin Puzzle For $7,500?


If you want to invest in Bitcoin but don’t know how, a new treasure hunt could be the easy way to enter the world of cryptocurrency.

Thousands of would-be investors are trying to unravel an online puzzle that is hiding a Bitcoin – worth about $7,500.

The coin is said to be hidden in a word cloud comprising terms from legendary Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto’s original paper proposing the launch of the digital currency.

The golden word cloud has a white Bitcoin motif superimposed.

“This work is comprised of Satoshi Nakamoto’s famous whitepaper words, scaled by Log N. Disparate ideas inspired Satoshi to create a solution to revolutionize modern socio-economics and industry. The work reflects on the elements that brought this technology to life, and challenges the underlying security model. Hidden in plain sight lies something more: a treasure hunt. 1 BTC is concealed within the work,” says the anonymous user who posted the treasure hunt on social media site Reddit.

Clue and more prizes

The puzzle is linked to a Bitcoin address that contains the coin – with $12 docked to cover transfer fees.

The only clue is someone counted the words in the image – claiming to see 239.

In reply, the anonymous poster said: ““You can throw at least half of those out. This is clue #1.”

They also hinted more than one prize may be concealed in the puzzle – with the Bitcoin as first prize.

“There’s also some consolation prizes scattered in there, but let’s not even talk about those for now ;),” said the poster cryptically.
