Interlude: the scavenger hunt protocol

Join thousands of players and hundreds of developers in a global, collaboratively designed scavenger hunt game.

Join as a player...

Participate in the biggest scavenger hunt in history. Find keys accross the web, inside video games and even in the real world, and get paid with our cryptocurrency!

...or as a developer

Hide keys on the web, or inside your games with just a few lines of code. Get traffic to your games or websites, and earn crypto when players find your keys!

Decentralized and scalable

The Scavenger Hunt Protocol will be deployed on the Binance Smart Chain, and is fair, secured and decentralized. After the launch period we won't control anything.

The only way to mine new tokens is to play the game and find keys. When a player finds a key new tokens are created and shared between the player and the developer that hid the key.

Here are simple answers to the first questions you could ask. If you want more details, you'll have to read our whitepaper!

Developers have hidden keys everywhere: on the web, inside games and websites, or even in the real world. Players have to find these keys. When a key is found the Player will get a cryptographic proof that, once sent to our smart contract, will award a given number of tokens.
