EPX Riddle - $500 Prize

[Disclaimer: I find this picture both hilarious and cringey at the same time]

Hello user,

I want to play a game.

I've been working on a new feature for EthPhoenix in conjunction with the other madmen and fools that make up the developer team. Instead of using a countdown, or blithely going "oh here you go, here's a new thing", I thought I'd instead build a bit of hype by offering a prize via a riddle.

The rules are simple. Crack my puzzle, and receive 0.7 Ether in a wallet along with the details announcing our new work. It's then up to you to decide whether to release the news straight away or sit on it for a few days.

The prize money has already been moved into its wallet from the EPX marketing fund: etherscan.io/tx/0x9a735759eb0f68a1c5e0a3a8334ce19eee8d9d3e92ec8663146398910594247b

The final clue will come out at some point in the next 24 hours (likely earlier), and I'll be announcing when it's all out in the wild. You've got some work to do before then.

Good luck, and thanks for reading.

Sorry, I ment how is that UI doing? Why did the eth in contract go down? Why is the stats page not in eth units?

The most obvious one is currently on the Stats page. There are pieces littered around the site, PyrMex, Twitter and so on.

Some things are red herrings. Things which are emphasised more than once are worth remembering.

Note: once I release the final hint into the wild, I'll begin a timer. The longer it takes for the hive mind to crack the riddle, the more money I'll pump into the prize wallet.

I'll copy-paste the OP from yesterdays thread on this. I did not write this.

"The EthPhoenix Developers (ethphoenix.com) are offering a ~$500 reward for solving a puzzle related to the announcement of new feature they are planning to release for their Ethereum dApp.

The puzzle appears to be partly cryptographic in nature and partly literary, and the clues are spread across the EthPhoenix dApp ecosystem (e.g. pyrmex.com).

If you're a puzzle solver who likes a good mystery, this treasure hunt might be up your alley. Hints and other clues can be found on the Ethphoenix twitter and on the discord. You can find both by going to the main page at ethphoenix.io

good luck and happy hunting. OH, and the 500$ is just the tip of the money iceberg. Prepare for a new era in crypto."

With that said, there's something close to a compendium currently being assembled in the #the_conspiracy channel on our Discord which I'm watching with no small measure of entertainment.

All pyramids are already banned dumbass. It doesn't matter - this isn't clearly a pyramid or not, it can't be shut down and we aren't all Korean.

It's certainly worth trying to find this egg, user. $500 bucks is well and good but the real prize might be what you open when you find the key. You could be first in to whatever the 'New' thing is and cosolidate a position before letting others know or they find out.

THAT could be worth a lot! And it costs nothing to try. on second thought...don't look. Better chance for me to win if you don't.
