TWELVEFOLD TUESDAY: Yuga Labs 'Printed' Its 5th Twelvefold Puzzle Last Night. Here's How To Solve It
Yuga Labs printed its fifth Twelvefold Tuesday puzzle late last night and required solvers to know a thing or two about printers and binary code!
On Tuesday, Yuga Labs released its fifth blockchain brain teaser based on six of the company’s 300 Twelvefold generative art pieces from the company’s ordinal collection.
For the second week in a row, the anonymous user bc1p was the first to solve the puzzle and the Yugaverse’s resident “Builder and Destroyer of puzzles,” Jtobat, explained how they did it for those of us who have no clue what’s going on!
In a seven-part Twitter Thread, Jtobcat explained that the first step to solving this week’s puzzle was identifying that the phrases "Really Gorgeous Blossoms" and "Colorful Memes You Know" start with the letters RGB and CMYK and that this has to do with printers.
“We need to focus on the images using CMYK, Jtobcat wrote. “Stands for Cyan Magenta Yellow Black and is how you printer prints images. Each twelvefold image is unique in that only certain colors were used to "print" each one. Identifying which CMYK colors used is the first step.”
From there, Jtobcat said that he read the Twevlefolds that were made in CMYK in binary and converted the numbers to get the final answer.
“Each of these can be read as binary (0 if CMYK color not used, and 1 if CMYK color used) and converted to a number from 1-16 and finally converted to a1z26 0001 = 1 = A 1110 = 14 = N 0001 = 1 = A 1100 = 12 = L 1111 = 15 = O 0111 = 7 = G To give a final answer of ANALOG.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Yuga Labs will release a new puzzle every Tuesday, based on their Bitcoin generative art project, Twelvefold, from now until November 28th, 2023. The first person to solve the puzzle will win 0.12 BTC. Everyone in the crypto ecosystem is invited to participate and attempt to solve Yuga Labs' blockchain brain teasers."
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Yuga Labs’ Twelvefold Tuesdays and will let you know who wins next week. Stay tuned for updates!
