Do you have a brain? Then you can earn tokens!
How Does This Proof-of-Brain Game Work?
It's really simple, you just have to unscramble an image. You start by going to the following webpage:
Once you're there, you will be presented with a login box and a 3x3 image that's been scrambled. Here's an example:
After you log in with your Posting Key a SEND ANSWER button will appear.
How Do I Move The Pieces Around?
You can move the pieces around by clicking on the one that you want to move and then clicking on the spot where it should go. Once you think you've solved it you then press SEND ANSWER. That's it!!! After 5-10 seconds you will know if you got it right or not. The game will only switch to a new image after someone submits the correct answer. Until then, it will remain on the same one until it is solved.
What Do I Win?
You earn 10 TOKENS for being the first one to solve the puzzle. These new tokens can not be mined by computers because only a human can unscramble images (hence the Proof-of-Brain). Nerds will no longer have an advantage in crypto-mining because bots cannot play this game.
Can I Play For Free?
YES! All players receive 15 lives automatically. Whenever you submit a wrong answer though, that number will decrease by 1. Once you hit 0 lives, the server will no longer accept answers from you.
How Do I Get More Lives?
You may acquire 15 more lives by sending @proofofbrain 1 HBD. If you send more than that, the server will calculate the amount of lives you get accordingly (1 HBD = 15 lives). The amount you send will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. For example, if you send 1.99 HBD it will be the same as sending 1 HBD. So, unless you want to donate to your favorite geek, I recommend sending whole amounts.
What Does It Mean When My Answer Is "Invalid"?
If your answer is invalid that means one of the following two things:
- You're out of lives
- Someone solved the puzzle right before you did
What Can I Do With BRAIN Tokens?
In the future, you will be able to transfer BRAIN to other players or trade them for HIVE/HBD. Another possibility will be to let you bribe zombies with them. This part of the game is still under development.
