The $1,000 Bitcoin Puzzle Hidden in Paris Street Painting Celebrating BTC’s 10 Years Finds Resolution
The $1,000 bitcoin puzzle that had been well hidden in a Paris street painting has been solved barely a week after it was announced, but the exact way it was solved hasn’t been revealed yet.
According to Bitcoinist, a crypto news outlet, Pascal Boyart, a street artist, had painted a ‘revolutionary’ street mural to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Genesis block, and in it was a bitcoin puzzle. He had put a reward of 0.26 BTC, which at that time was worth around $1,000, but later on, public donations increased it to 0.28 BTC.
Six days later, Boyart announced through his official twitter huddle that the puzzle had been solved, and went ahead to congratulate the person who had solved it.
