You’re invited on a Privacy Quest! Solve clues to find hidden codes and win prizes of BTC, PRV, XMR, Nodes, and more.
Sound good? Let’s get to it.
How to play
The premise is simple. First, you’ll need your Incognito app.
Don’t have the Incognito app? Where have you been! Get it here.
To start, open the app, and tap on “Quest”.
You’ll see treasure chests. Inside them are QUEST tokens, which you’ll be able to use to spin the lucky wheel and win prizes.
1. Tap on the chests to unveil clues
The numbers underneath each chest indicate the number of people who need to solve a clue in order to open the chest.
Clues point to QR codes that can be anywhere on the internet, but some helpful places to look are:
- Social media comments (like replies to tweets)
- YouTube video thumbnails
- YouTube video descriptions
- Online forum posts (and not just this forum!)
- Online articles, Medium, etc
- Websites, blogs or social platforms of Quest partners
Once you’ve found a hidden code, you’ll need to:
2. Scan the code to get QUEST
Just tap the Scan icon in upper-left corner of the screen and you’ll see a chest pop up.
Types of chests
It’s important to hurry in this quest, because once the required number of people have found the code to open the chest, you’ll find it empty and won’t get a reward.
You are doing great! Simply wait for others to solve the chest, or share this quest with your friends and get a reward together.
If you happen to be the last of the required number of people to open the chest – congrats, you just unlocked it for everyone.
A wild QR code has appeared!
Keep looking! This message appears when you’ve scanned a QR code that does not belong to any of the chests in Privacy Quest.
Once a chest you found has been unlocked, you’ll receive the corresponding QUEST tokens. Your balance may take a few minutes to update, and if you have notifications enabled, you’ll get one when it does.
3. Spin the lucky wheel
Now that you have QUEST, you can tap the “Spin” tab to win some prizes. 1 QUEST token = 1 Spin. If you have enough QUEST, you can also spin 20x in one transaction!
To protect against bots/fraud and encourage new users to explore the app, there will be a fee of 0.07 PRV for each spin on the wheel. This helps new users get familiar with app features like shielding, trading, and sending between accounts. This way, people come for the Quest, but stay for the privacy.
There are 16 prize slots on the wheel. Some prizes are much easier to win than others, with BTC LOTTO tokens being one of the most frequently-appearing. Gotta get that Bitcoin!
Track the prize pool
At the bottom of the Wheel tab, you’ll notice a list of prizes. This dashboard shows you how many times each prize has been won, as well as the most recent time it was won (dd.mm hh:mm). Above the list, you can see how many spins have been taken, and how many LOTTO tokens still need to be won for the Bitcoin lottery to begin.
Check the status of your Quest
In the history tab, you’ll find two kinds of records.
Keep tabs on what chests you’ve been rewarded for, and how many people still you need for locked chests. You can share the Quest with your friends from here to open them faster.
See what rewards you‘ve been paid, and which ones you’re waiting on. You’ll find every spin you make recorded here, for easy tracking. “Complete” means the reward has been disbursed (and will appear in your account shortly). “Pending” means the transaction is still processing, and you will likely be unable to spin the wheel again until it finishes.
4. Participate in the Bitcoin lottery
If you spin the wheel and land on “Lotto”, you’ll earn a very special token – LOTTO. At the end of the Privacy Quest, each of your LOTTO will earn you 1 entry into a random drawing to win the 1 BTC prize.
May the odds be in your favor!
So, if you’ve already raced through all the clues and want more, got there too late, or simply can’t find the answers – we’ve got you. We’ll be releasing new clues randomly over the next couple of weeks, even when the wheel is live. So remember to keep checking in!
More QUEST means more spins on the wheel, and more chances to win. More LOTTO means more entries to win 1 BTC.
We hope you enjoy the Privacy Quest. Remember that opening chests requires teamwork, so be sure to show your friends how to join the fun.
