Tezos recently activated the Delphi upgrade resulting in a huge reduction of gas consumption thanks to a number of improvements to the Michelson interpreter. Additionally, storage costs are now four times lower!

To celebrate this feat, we released a short puzzle last week.

The 100 XTZ prize was claimed about 7 hours after launch, by a user named JTobcat in our Discord.

Recently our team has come to really enjoy developing on Tezos. Coming from an Ethereum background we first approached problems with an Ethereum developer’s mindset which got in the way a bit, but our journey also led to our first happy accident — the creation of “Proof of Puzzle” and the PoP Machine Glow zero knowledge prover.

Thinking of Ethereum as a “world wide supercomputer” and its tx model (which makes it free to call non-payable functions), it’s easy to fetch the result of pure computations at no cost to the end user. To start with, we had a rough…

In this post we’re taking an in depth look at the design and solution strategies for Satoshi’s Lost Faucet. We’re currently working on a successor puzzle game, perhaps this guide will come in handy to those who compete in our next puzzle.

On February 14, 2020 we launched our first crypto puzzle game “Satoshi’s Lost Faucet”.

About 200 players participated preceding the prize withdrawal. The prize was claimed 5 days after puzzle launch by a Discord user named Pogo


So what’s this Enigma all about?

Enigma is a decentralized, open-source protocol that lets anyone perform computations on encrypted data, bringing privacy to smart contracts and public blockchains. Our mission: improve the adoption and usability of decentralized technologies, for the benefit of all. (Source)

Enigma is a secure computation network that acts as a layer 2 solution for Ethereum. Enigma introduces the concept of secret contracts, which are identical to Ethereum contracts but can compute on sensitive data. (Source)

That’s cool, what’s it got to do with blockchain games?

Imagine a turn based game processed on a public blockchain (like Ethereum) where two players battle each other. The game works by each player submitting choices to…
