“The crypto analyst competition, in which Bitcoin is hidden in art, is an adventure trip,” said the Bitcoin Quest announcement. “Participants show their analytical skills by blowing through the details of a big picture. The goal for the participants is to find the words and create a bitcoin seed. It is 14 words long and gives access to bitcoins stored at the winning addresses (13 + 3 Satochip addresses) in Electrum Bitcoin Wallet (PC version), ”add the organizers.
Bitcoin Quest is a project developed by Jeff Fawkes aka ‘Bitpainter’, an artist who has been hiding seeds in pictures since 2017.
Contest winners can try to win 13 Bitcoin prizes for the artwork, worth $ 150 each and three Satochip hardware wallets. The Satochip wallets will also feature a unique print from the 2021 Bitcoin Quest competition. The participants also receive a “Bitcoin Quest Analyst Certificate” and with such a document “nobody will dare to doubt your abilities”, emphasized the authors of the competition.
In addition, the winners are invariably recorded and engraved on a blockchain. “We will write a list of all winners on the Ethereum blockchain,” said the Bitcoin Quest announcement. “It will be available through the Eternal Note service msgeth.com or through Etherscan.io. A transaction ID is added to the individual certificate. “
The competition was created to encourage people to refine their knowledge of Bitcoin and mnemonic seed phrases. Crypto skills are important and are needed alongside hardware and software to participate in the newest assignment. Users need a Telegram account, knowledge of Electrum wallets, a computer, large monitor, and more. To begin searching for quests, the user must retrieve the image on January 21st and after that from the Bitcoin Quest Telegram channels.
Simply find the seeds according to the official quest rules and clues and drop one or two of the winning seeds in the artwork. “You have to do all of this faster than any other crypto-analyst,” Bitcoin Quest developers told news.Bitcoin.com. Bitcoin Quest is a favorite project of Jeff Fawkes aka ‘Bitpainter’, an artist who has been creating art using bitcoin mnemonic seeds in large drawings since 2017.
“I want to combine two of my great passions: art and crypto,” said Fawkes. “This is where the idea of ’Bitcoin Quest’ came about. It’s a competition where I draw pictures with hidden Bitcoin wallet seeds and you keep whatever you find about BTC, ”the artist concluded.
