Creators of a messaging platform called Telegram are putting a bounty up to anyone looking to earn a 6-digit pay-out. Village idiots need not apply, we’re talking Q-level experts here.
This self-dubbed “Crypto Contest” puts the following object out:
Starting today, each day Paul (+79112317383) will be sending a message containing a secret email address to Nick (+79218944725). In order to prove that Telegram crypto was indeed deciphered and claim your prize, send an email to the secret email address from Paul’s message.
This is bringing me back to the SATs — the only day my calculator decided to not power on. Hopefuls looking to earn the $200,000 payout will require explaining what they’ve done, the entire text of the message that contained the email address, and a bitcoin address — because, yes — the payout is in bitcoin.
