Beat the game, win a Bitcoin. Simple, right? That’s the premise of MonteCrypto: The Bitcoin Enigma, a PC game scheduled for release next week.

The mysterious game, the latest in a long tradition of public treasure hunts, offers players the opportunity to achieve a lucrative payday — if they can solve the game’s two dozen puzzles, that its.

At its core, MonteCrypto: The Bitcoin Enigma is a first-person maze exploration game, and players will be tasked with solving 24 “mind-bending puzzles.”

Embedded in the game’s files is a wallet.dat file containing the private key to an address with a 1 BTC balance. The wallet is encrypted with a 24-word seed that players will unlock once they beat the game. Only one player, however, will be able to claim the prize, and the rest will be met with an empty wallet.

Although the game is single-player, users can leave messages for others to find. Will they cooperate to solve the puzzles, or will they use the feature to try to steer them off the correct path? That’s what the game’s creators say they want to find out.

From the game’s Steam page:

“Montecrypto: The Bitcoin Enigma is an experiment in player choice and cooperation like no other, with a prize that translates not only to bragging rights but to real world value. How much will players be willing to share, how much will they be able to compromise and who will claim access to the final vault of Montecrypto?”

Incidentally, the development team, Gem Rose Accent, is as enigmatic as the game itself. The company has not produced any other games under this brand, and the developers said that they will not reveal their identities until a player has claimed the 1 BTC prize.

The game, which will be released on the Steam platform on Feb. 20, has a $1.99 entry fee. The 1 Bitcoin prize? That’s currently valued at $10,763, according to the CCN Bitcoin price index.

Police Arrest Four Ukrainians for Running Fake Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Law enforcement in Ukraine has arrested four young men who were running at least six fake cryptocurrency exchanges. The cryptocurrency sphere is an exciting space, and many people are eager to begin buying and selling virtual currencies. However, such an influx of money and inexperienced newcomers also bring out the criminal element, seeking to gain funds at the expense of those new to the space. Scams abound, but police in Ukraine have done their part by arresting some individuals who ran a number of fake cryptocurrency exchanges. Using Programming Skills to Set up Scams In the city of Dnipro, Ukraine, police announced that they had arrested four men between the ages of 20 and 26. The quartet had set up a number of fake cryptocurrency exchanges. Police know of six fake exchanges that they operated, but there is a definite possibility that there may be more. The six fake exchanges include: moneycraft.info, wowex.online, swapex.net, myexchanger.lv, iconvex.net, and likechange.biz. Police say that the criminals had “special knowledge and skills in the field of programming” and “have created their own CMS-system for managing the content of exchange sites.” Unsure of Amount Stolen Police are asking those who were scammed by the fake cryptocurrency exchanges to come forward and file complaints. As of now, law enforcement does not know exactly how much the four men were able to steal from their victims. Police may be able to glean such information from the equipment that was seized during the arrests. It was reported that flash drives, computers, smartphones, and other equipment were confiscated when police raided the homes of the four men. The reality is that crime and scams are rampant in the cryptocurrency sphere. One should always do due diligence before spending any money. The world of virtual currencies is still akin to that of the Wild West, which means that danger is just as close as excitement and opportunity.
