Prepare - Uncover - Outwit - Find - WIN!



Welcome to the Steemit Crypto Challenge. You may know this series of puzzles or not. Let me give you a quick introduction. You are looking to find a solution. Anything can be a hint. You will start with two hints given and need to seek the right path. So you think you are good with riddles? Are you a big master of crypto puzzles? Find the answer. Sometimes the hints are hidden, not visible to the eye. But they are here.

Can you follow your intuition and stay on the right track? The first to reveal a hint will win a prize. The first to attain understanding with the right answer will receive their bigger reward.

Might be on a hiding to nothing!

Is 2016-07-23T10:33:03 the answer ? :)

Yeah it is! Congratulation :) You won

Wov! Cool! :)
I have read most of your blog posts, comments, checked pictures, and finally found your poem! :)
After I found out the question, it was so obvious.

I will make a winners announcement tomorrow and send you the prize

Thank you! :)

OK, i got the hidden link figured out and got the link to the image and the rar - but i'm stuck on password for opening it

great puzzles btw, you should definitely get myst -
and fore more puzzles like this follow hbo's westworld and their online ARG for the backstory - https://discoverwestworld.com/

Check the picture. :)

If you convert the digits from the cover image to text, you get this "encryption is the key". It might be useful later. :)

The next crypto challenge you will play the joker

d##b a## bot!!! Seriously they could, at the very least, look at the author. Annoying bots

Good ole Cheetah, keeping the world safe for democracy

Hey cheetah, yeah I copied this from @timsaid

one day I would do this challenge, one day. That's not the type of challenge I am good at unfortunately.

Maybe you can find someone to help you and share the reward

it reminds me of the puzzles in myst

I had to google to know what Myst is. Looks interesting

I am also stuck with with the riddle in the artist.txt . It contains this:

Two nice guys made a great interpreation. Have a look. There are hints.

How did you open the text file?

I checked the picture from the encrypted text with google. I found that it is the phases of mitosis. So I tried mitosis as password, and it worked! :)

I knew it was too easy :D

Yes, but at least there is a chance to solve the challenge! :)

Btw I keep searching, and I just found your article:
https://steemit.com/science/@timsaid/life-explorers-the-science-academy-bacteria-and-viruses

So if I search on steemit for Interphase, I also find the password. :)
