A new Bitcoin puzzle was created by artist Pascal Boyart. A large and beautifully painted street mural in Paris contains the key to winning 0.26 BTC ($1,000).
New Bitcoin Puzzle in Paris
To celebrate and commemorate the 10th birthday of Bitcoin’s genesis block, artist Pascal Boyart has painted a frescoe in the street of the French capital containing a 0.26 BTC puzzle in it.

The artist also disclaimed that whoever wants to solve the puzzle entirely needs to be physically standing in front of the mural.
A Growing Trend
This is far from being the first puzzle containing Bitcoin rewards. In fact, spreading awareness through art and puzzles has become a common practice in the field of cryptocurrencies.
Back in April, a user created yet another Bitcoin puzzle which contained 1 BTC as a reward to whoever manages to solve it.
Before that, in February, a user solved a puzzle which contained a total of 4.87 BTC as a reward. Interestingly enough, the puzzle was posted three years ago but no one managed to solve it for the time being.
Puzzles are not the only thing growing in popularity when it comes to cryptocurrency-related artwork, though.
Another artist – a user by the name of Cryptograffiti, recently auctioned a tiny painting made of parts of a $1 bill, to the lowest bidder. The main idea was to highlight the capabilities of the Lightning Network to handle microtransactions. The piece was sold for a milli-satoshi which, at the time, was worth just $0.000000037.
