You Can Win Bitcoin by Beating This New Video Game
If you want to be able to go back in time and buy bitcoin when it only costs a few dollars, now you have a chance – something like that. A new video game (discovered by the motherboard ) offers players the chance to win one bitcoin (currently valued at just over $ 10,000). All you have to do is buy the game on Steam for $ 1.99 and be the first to win.
MonteCrypto: Bitcoin Enigma launches on February 20th on Steam. There’s also a 40% discount if you buy it on the day of release, bringing the price down to $ 1.19.
We don’t know much about the game itself, but some details have already been revealed. It uses a first-person perspective and contains 24 puzzles to solve as you make your way through the maze or rooms in what looks like a spooky mansion. You can play as a team or alone, and you can leave clues (or distractions) for other players to find.
As far as I can tell, the game appears to be perfectly legal and does not violate any official Steam rules . The developers behind this do make a pretty big profit if they can sell enough copies. At $ 1.99, just 5,000 downloads would be enough to pay off, although that doesn’t take into account the same day discount or bitcoin price fluctuations.
As an initial hint, the MonteCryptoFAQ page links to a small piece of code on GitHub designed to help people crack their bitcoin wallet password if they only remember part of it. The developers also suggest checking the source code of the FAQ page for additional hints while you wait for the game’s official release.
