for "Paris Decrypt The Street (H)", the Start-up Stendhal proposed a series of challenges to find this very special treasure. You had to resolve a series of puzzles, which it was possible to do online on the event site. Then the candidates had to find the works of Street Art thanks to words delivered by the answers to puzzles on the model of the technology blockchain, whose security is based on codes composed of twelve words.

"There was for example a duet with a person who resolved riddles from her to Los Angeles and another who was on the ground in Paris to find the artworks of Art," says Florent Thurin, CEO of Stendhal .

Petit Caillou in the organizers' shoe: the winner A (too) quickly found the treasure. "In Bordeaux, on the first event of the genre that we had organized in May, there is still no winner. So we dropped the level of the puzzles in Paris. The winner is also a big treasure fan And he had already participated in the operation of Bordeaux, so he knew the logic of the puzzles ", continues Florent Thurin.

we were able to join Adrien, 19, the big winner of the contest. "I found the treasure in 6:30 with Antoine with whom I was teaming up. I'm used to treasure hunts. I know the mechanics, it helped me. It was much easier than in Bordeaux" . The duo starts with two eth (Ethureums), a cryptomonnaie among the most popular behind the bitcoin. These two eth are already worth around 3500 euros.
