Black metal boxes, reminiscent of a cell phone case in size and shape, are currently causing a stir in many cities around the world — and delighting the lucky finders. If you follow the invitation “Open me”, which sticks to the side of the box as a sticker, the interior reveals an unexpected blessing.

So far stays unclear, who is behind this mysterious action and who willingly has something to give away. However, well known is the name under which the organization appears on Instagram and posts photos of their stations around the world — snoopos.

Similarly, the Slovenian founder of LanaCoin, Jure Pirc, found the way to prepare the treasure hunt for cryptocurrency.

“On a random day and random location in Slovenia, we shall hide a small glass bottle containing a LanaCoin paper wallet containing a random amount of $LANA,” he writes.

According to the website, LanaCoin is one of the first personalized cryptocurrencies, created as a birthday present with a unique attribute of its genesis block launch at the exact unix time of Lanas 10th birthday.

Blockchain parameters are fully packed with attributes surrounding the birthday time and date.

The project started at first as a simply unique birthday present with no false promises or roadmap deadlines on development. The only promise that was made was that the development of services around the LanaCoin blockchain will be done in the near future and rolled out in steps.

LanaCoin is a hybrid proof of work/proof of stake open blockchain using sha256 hashing algorithm.

Pirc continues with instructions:
“With each new location of the Lana treasure bottle, there will be one or more posts in the event discussion thread with clues to the location of the bottle and on some occasions, a riddle will be posted. If a riddle is solved the solver gets the GPS coordinates of the place where the bottle is hidden.

We kindly ask our treasure hunters to put their safety first when discovering the beautiful landmarks of Slovenia while looking for the Lana treasure.

If you find the bottle, you find the private key to the crypto treasure. You can decide for yourself if you want to leave the treasure on the paper wallet or transfer it to your mobile wallet (sweep the private key).”
