Does anyone want to help me develop a puzzle for the Testnet… While we’re waiting? I’ll put a maidsafecoin bounty in it and host it on the Safenet. I’d rather collaborate tho. Any volunteers? If you’re not familiar with my work, check me out on Twitter @coin_artist. I already have some ideas brewing, but am open to hearing all creative ideas.
I like the idea… something like Kryptos with a few layers of increasing complexity, might be good longstanding fun for the main net and then the testnet a good opportunity to trial that. Answers hidden at an address that can only be found by solving a puzzle, perhaps. I’d suggest only something that is possible without niche skills; so, less like, Cicada 3301, which is just an opportunity for geeks to burn time; and more something that requires intellect and perhaps a little research - a great puzzle should be really open to anyone to solve… Puzzle Is For Everyone.
Sounds like I can just plan to host the puzzle on the live network, woo hoo!
I think you’re right, a simple, fun, but entertaining puzzle; challenging enough to be engaging but not horribly frustrating.
I’ll leave the cicada 3301 challenges for next time
I’m starting to draft the puzzle today. I’ll plan my release around the price of Maidsafecoin, as a means to draw attention to the Safe Network.
I’m going to fund the puzzle prize with 1 BTC of Maidsafecoin, I may decide to increase the prize, we’ll see.
I successfully launched a bitcoin puzzle, but since Maidsafe is still not entirely user friendly I had to forgo implementing the safenetwork into this particular puzzle. However the inspiration of the puzzle was largely inspired by David Irvine’s vision of the Safenetwork. Perhaps one day, I will build something directly on the Safenetwork. But for now, the puzzle was launched and a healthy puzzle solving thread has developed on bitcointalk.org. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1488665.0;all
