Death to Fiat
Death to Fiat hid a prize wallet containing 0.02 BTC. This puzzle involves the 16 tombstones scattered throughout the overworld as shown below.
Each tombstone contains the 3 character abbreviation of a real currency, its real creation date, and a fake death date in the future.
To solve this puzzle, collect the birth and death dates from all 16 tombstones. Order the fiat creation dates (dates should be historically accurate) from newest to oldest. Next, find the difference in days between the death dates of each subsequent fiat pair to get a number from 0–2047. This is a bip39 number to create a 15 word seed.
Example: The number of days between July 20, 2021 and April 18, 2026 is 1733 days
This results in the wallet seed below:
