Here is a current overview of news from the world of crypto currencies. Today, it's all about a Bitcoin treasure hunt and a new milestone for Litecoin.
A $ 1 million treasure hunt for Bitcoin is currently underway. The trigger for this was a mysterious message from space.
The anonymous message was transmitted over a blockstream satellite. So the keys to a $ 1 million wallet of Bitcoin are split into a thousand pieces. The first person picking up 400 of these pieces can secure the treasure. But she has to use the magic of the magician Shamir. This is an allusion to a cryptographic algorithm called Shamir's Secret Sharing. The Israeli cryptologist Adi Shamir developed it in 1979.
Received a new message over @Blockstream Satellite. It appears to be a treasure hunt for $ 1,000,000 in #bitcoin, with included GPS coordinates for the first part of the hunt! 🤯🛰️🔎🗺️ https://t.co/M4mKMbQ8KU pic.twitter.com/HzkEJ8RFXc

Some clues should be in physical locations around the world. Others are hidden in puzzles. Information on the hiding spots can be found on the website “Satoshi's Treasure”.
Behind the treasure hunt is a company on “a tropical island” stuck. At the same time, one apparently wants to release an app to help fellow players keep track of hints and updates. At the same time, the treasure hunt should be a channel for sponsors and partnerships with external brands.
Ripple Labs and Ripple XRP
Paul Arriyavat is the chief executive officer of the Thai Siam Commerical Bank (SBC). Arriyavat has now stated that the company will expand its use of Ripple's cross-border payment solutions.
The SBC has already confirmed that it uses Ripples xCurrent to send payments. In December 2018, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse indicated that the SBC could also use Ripple xRapid.
