LONDON, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Stratis, the company making blockchain easy, today released the 'Stratis puzzle', a series of 12 challenging cryptographic tasks designed to identify and reward elite blockchain development talent. The puzzle officially launches today and will remain open until all prizes have been claimed, or for a period of six months.

Stratis is seeking the 'best of the best' with a series of 12 sequential puzzles, each more challenging than the last. Each task tests general logic, blockchain knowledge, cryptography and aptitude with the Stratis Platform itself.

The top prize, equivalent to over $10,000, will remain locked in a wallet controlled by the private key that is recovered after solving all 12 of the Puzzle's tasks. Each task reveals a single word from the mnemonic phrase which provides access to the wallet holding the prize fund.

There are also two development roles up for grabs on the Stratis core team with an automatic job offer made to the first contestant that solves at least 10 of the 12 tasks.

Krushang Patel, Stratis CMO commented: "If you think you have what it takes to mix it with the best in the community then we encourage you to try the Stratis Puzzle. We have two genuine roles on offer as part of our core team and the puzzle was the most logical and entertaining way we could think to fill them."

Chris Trew, Stratis CEO added: "Finding talented blockchain developers is notoriously difficult as demand far outweighs supply.  The puzzle is our way of connecting with new talent, but equally the winner might choose to walk away with the cash prize, and that's absolutely fine too."

Anyone that wants to give the puzzle a try should begin with the first task. Once contestants have solved the first puzzle, which requires no blockchain knowledge, the next step will be revealed.

The prize fund can be viewed on the Stratis blockchain explorer here.
