Logic Beach, an instrumental and non-verbal techie sounding music group, recently released a new album with Bitcoin (BTC) hidden inside its walls and it’s up for grabs to whoever solves the associated puzzle.
It has been reported that listeners are now working find the 12 word seed phrase for the wallet holding the BTC prize.
In a May 12 Reddit thread on r/Bitcoin, Logic Beach posted:
“I have hidden the seed to a wallet containing ~0.03 (+ 0.02) BTC inside of my latest album.”
Logic Beach added:
“‘Bifurcations‘ by Logic Beach is a Lo-Fi, Synth-Glitch, experimental project I’ve put together to celebrate the halving and to have a bit of fun. You will need the Lossless versions of the songs to solve this thing. (download the .wav files).”
However, the YouTube account of Logic Beach reveals Herman Felker as the individual behind the music.
Felker claims in his YouTube bio:
“I am an Astrophysicist by night and an artist by night, but don’t let that distract you.”
Though Felker considered all album sale profits go into the wallet to boost the prize pot by inputting $0.00 into the payment box gives users the album for free on a site called BandCamp, he said that he does not expect the treasure hunt to last long as he thinks the puzzle is not terribly difficult.
As per the report, if someone completes the mission, Felker requested that the winner share his or her method and route on Reddit, although he also said anonymity is fine as well if the victor wishes.
Also, at press time, the album’s wallet address, bc1qj7467e7r5pdfpypm03wyvguupdrld0ul2gcutg, still holds the BTC prize.
Felker said in the Reddit post:
“If no one solves it by May 21, I’ll take it down and explain the solution.”
Thus, he noted that no previous album has ever contained buried Bitcoin, as several other crypto space participants have created similar gigs over the years, including BTC paintings with hidden BTC in 2018.
