How do you guys decide which POI wins? Is there a name for the POI that has to be exactly what you want it to be? And how fast do you reveal the winner? Is there any sense in adding different names for the POI if it has already be registered but there was no winner announced yet?


#17

We check timestamps on the transactions and give to the first one that solved the riddle. Sometimes the announcement might be delayed, but we are doing our best to keep track of the solving in real time!

Is there any sense in adding different names for the POI if it has already be registered but there was no winner announced yet?

Yes and no. We saw some misnaming in the first riddle, but mostly people have been guessing correctly!

Edit : The third POI has been found !
