Fans of The Da Vinci Code take note: a cryptic image that conceals an unknown amount of Monero is circulating the web. The image was originally created for DefCon last year, but the designer has now re-published the work in hopes that the crypto community will finally be able to solve the puzzle. However, the solution remains elusive…
This artwork is a #Monero #puzzle I made with a lot of ❤️.
There’s a private key with an unknown amount of #XMR hidden in it. Which, rumour has it, is the same @fluffypony lost in his boating accident. Can you find it? Blow my mind!https://t.co/vrneCuhUsa pic.twitter.com/PNmVSNB9vW

A Monumental Work
The vast tapestry, which was created by the Monera, features countless sub-images, including many Monero memes. The Church of Monero, Monero Cat, and “to the moon” are all displayed prominently. Privacy iconography is also featured heavily: the image makes reference to 1984, The Invisible Man, the Tor browser, and wartime propaganda, among other things.
