Only one wallet

The clues to the mammoth-sized Bitcoin stash, which range from scavenger hunt riddles to math problems, are scattered all over the Internet and even real-world locations. As expected, the game had a slew of contributors in order to make sure that not a single person can cheat the system.  

One has to collect at least 400 fragments out of 1,000 available ones in order to unlock the wallet with the prize. If somebody solves the puzzle, it’s up for the winning team to decide how they are going to distribute the money.


“When the winning team wins they do so by taking the bitcoin and we have nothing to do with this. We’re not giving the prize. There are so many unknowns in this game that we kind of just want to see what happens,” claims the game’s co-creator, Eric Meltzer.

Teens are excited     

So far, they’ve managed to attract about 6,000 people with teens being the majority of them. The report states that this is a fun way for this demographic to learn about Bitcoin. On top of that, they get an opportunity to actually earn Bitcoin without the need to have their own bank account. However, Meltzer is certain that their audience will eventually become more diverse:

“A lot of [players] are young, it skews very young so far. I don’t think it will stay that way.”

As reported by U.Today, a similar quest was conducted by a French artist who hid $1,000 worth of BTC in his epic mural that was devoted to the ‘yellow vest’ movement.

It’s been over two weeks since Bitcoin’s astronomical surge on Apr. 2, but new theories about what might have caused this bullish uptick continue to pop up. According to crypto-oriented analytical firm CoinMetrics, that epic surge was causes by a single trader.

Mammoth-size trades

CoinMetrics claims that ‘a single committed trader’ concocted a plan to push the BTC price, and he successfully managed to do that by picking the time of the day when the global liquidity is at its lowest level.

The report also suggests that the trader started to execute his plan on HitBTC (500,000 USDT were traded for Bitcoin prior to the price movement). After that, large trades were observed on Coinbase and Bitfinex.

Focusing on the future

Meanwhile, as reported by U.Today, another theory states that the rapid price surge was triggered by the expiration of the CME futures contracts and heavy spot and over-the-counter buying. One expert went as far as claiming that a simple April joke about the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) could do the trick.

While no one is quite sure about what could have triggered the short-living rally, there is even a bigger disconnect when it comes to Bitcoin price predictions. While some share their bullish predictions for 2019, another report states that it could take 22 years for Bitcoin in order to match its current ATH of $20,000.
