Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ The Monero Tracking Challenge #1 Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

Contest 1 has ended!

Reward: 23 XMR (≈ $1150)

We have hidden a 23 moneroj (plural form of “monero”) prize by first placing it in a public wallet (Wallet_Alpha, which we will reveal below) and then, through a series of transactions, moving it to a secret final wallet (Wallet_Omega). Use whatever transaction tracing methods you think will work.

Details

Your goal is to determine the public address of Wallet_Omega. Procedure for submitting your answer is detailed in a section below.

Contest begins August 9, 2017, 11:00 UTC

The deadline for submitting answers is August 16, 2017, 11:00 UTC.

If multiple correct submissions were received, the one which was received first will win the prize.
If no correct submissions were received, the prize will not be awarded to anyone.

The winner (if any) will not be announced until AFTER the deadline!

To inspect/audit Wallet_Alpha, use these instructions starting from the line that reads “The auditor then creates a view wallet for your key”.

Procedure for Submitting Answers

Answers are to be embedded into the Bitcoin blockchain using CryptoGraffiti.info as follows:

  1. Go to cryptograffiti.info and click the “Write” button
  2. You will enter the following lines of text
  3. Then click “Save to block chain” and follow their instructions. They will ask for a small bitcoin fee in order to submit your message to the blockchain.
  4. Copy the Transaction ID they give you and email it to lemnismotl@protonmail.com. Here’s an example of where you can find the transaction ID on your completed submission: tx id = string of letters+numbers at bottom of graffiti bubble
Remember: Make sure to send us the transaction id from your cryptograffiti.info submission. No transaction id means no prize for you!

Proof of Fairness

Once the deadline has passed, we will publish the viewkeys and key-images of all intermediate wallets as well as of Wallet_Omega within 48 hours, so that the transaction trail can be audited by anyone.
