What are CryptoPuzzles?

A Creative Crypto (@creativecrypto) original art series that embeds clues to cryptocurrency wallets within collectible NFT (non-fungible token) artwork. The first edition of the Puzzle Series was called “BitcoinHaus” (@bitcoinhaus) which included a set of 3D architectural monuments inspired by cryptocurrency icons. Embedded in each artwork were a network of clues that led to a wallet and a prize. Different views of the same 3D landscape yielded answers and exposed curious avatars (known as KryptoKodama). These collectible creatures helped the crypto-curious find their way. As NFTs were sold, the record of sale was recorded on the Steem blockchain, thus making it eligible to receive crypto-backed upvotes. With each sale, the treasure will grow.

With this artful and engaging series, we're aiming to provide a low barrier of entry into crypto in addition to cultivating Steem as a social glue across all blockchain art communities. With decentralized NFT (non-fungible token) art marketplaces like SuperRare, KnownOrigin, Portion, OpenSea, and more cropping and poised to take on legacy art institutions, we wanted to create a fun and educational way to attract new collectors and creators into the Steem community. We believe that Steem is an exciting forum for creative professionals to experiment and share their work. There's a tremendous amount of complimentary benefits that this ecosystem can have for other apps, DApps and blockchains.

Accumulating Crypto Treasure

The last puzzle started off with a 500 Steem donation by @creativecrypto. This initial prize got the ball rolling, eyebrows raised, and treasure hunters engaged. Afterwards, activity records (like this one) were published on the Steem blockchain. Our team will be using this feed to accrue crypto treasure and share ideas from our sketchbook for the next edition of CryptoPuzzles. Stay tuned for updates from our sketchbook!
