Wallet Hunt Brief:

Welcome to our first hunt! We’re working on enhancing your wallet hunt experience with improved software, clues and more. Please feel free to comment below with any suggestions, complaints or concerns.

Please remember: We will NEVER ask you for a private key or wallet seed.

Introduction to today’s hunt:

Earlier this year Sasha Ivanov, the CEO of WAVES, noted that 2018 will be the year of the platform. And the WAVES Platform is certainly one of the best ones out there. It allows for the creation of your own custom Crypto tokens in under a minute, has a Decentralized Exchange, is the fastest open blockchain available, and will soon have smart contracts to rival other blockchains.

In that spirit, the winner of today’s hunt will gain access to a wallet containing 10 WAVES tokens.

This is the wallet address you’ll be working to hack, verifiable on any Waves Blockchain Explorer:

*The solution to this Wallet Hunt will be provided once funds have been hacked and moved*

CLUE 1:

Last year Waves Platform activated an upgrade that significantly boosted its transaction-per-second capability. That upgrade is called Waves-NG.
