Guess the Coin Round Four Closes Soon

Guess the coin round four
Guess the coins – round 4

The fourth round of ‘Guess the Coin’ closes imminently. This competition allows COSS account holders to try and guess the next coins to be listed on COSS. The prize for getting both coins correct is 500 CFT (~$14 currently).

My previous attempt at guessing the coins was not even close. However, this time round, I’m much more certain, which is why the publish date is very close to the end time of the competition.

10 winners will be drawn at random from all the correct entries. To enter, you will need to submit your entries via the official Google Docs form, or you can just click the button below, after you’ve read through the clues.

CLue 1: AI, anyone?

Clue 2: Getting rid of silos

You have until 14th April 00:00 GMT (8AM in Singapore), to send your answers in via the Google form. You must have a COSS account to be eligible to win, and the email you submit via the form should be the same as your COSS email. Winners will be notified by email, so make sure it is valid, and check your spam folder!

Some Clues to Get You Started

There are a lot of coins out there focussed around AI, so the first coin isn’t initially obvious. From the logo, it looks like the pixelation is hiding an ‘S’.

With not a lot to go on, I headed to Google and used the power search AI which brought up all the tokens listed on Coinmarketcap with ‘AI’ in their description. Unfortunately, this also brought up all descriptions that linked to a site ending .ai.

One result did stand out however:

With a team that has amassed AI developers and robotics scientists, SingularityNET (AGI) was developed to serve as a marketplace for AI services made accessible through the blockchain.

The next token was easier to recognise by its distinctive logo. The pixelation looks like it is hiding the lower case ‘sigma’ (σ) character.

After searching for the distinctive logo on Coinmarketcap, I found LTO, whose logo looks exactly like the one in the clue. However, no mention of silos in the description. Heading over to their website, still no mention of silos. In fact this token seems to offer nothing like what you would be imaging with a clue like ‘Getting rid of silos’.

Not put off, I used the Google power search again site: silo and found ‘The data silo problem‘.

Your Thoughts on These Guesses?

As I mentioned at the start of the post, last time my guesses were completely wrong! So if you are placing your trust in me this time, then good luck!

I think you’ll agree, if you take a look at both of these coins, there seems to be strong evidence they are the right answers.

The competition closes very soon, so if you still haven’t had a guess, take a shot now. If you have any thoughts on other coins the clues could be hinting at (and are willing to share), leave a comment below.

Guess the Coin Competition Closes Soon

Round two of the COSS coin guess competition

Recently, COSS has begun to roll out competitions and promotions on a more frequent schedule. One of the competitions currently running is the ‘Guess the coin’ competition.

Guess the two coins COSS will be listing next for your chance to win 500 CFT ($50). Participants are provided with the following two clues listed below.

Below are some of my own clues to get you started on your hunt for the mystery coins!

CLue 1. Blockchain for business

Clue 2. Interoperability, simplified

You have until 31st March 00:00 GMT (8AM in Singapore), to send your answers in via a Google form. You must have a COSS account to be eligible to win, and the email you submit via the form should be the same as your COSS email.

Some Clues to Get You Started

Interoperability is an unusual word, so for any detectives out there trying to solve this riddle, that seems like a good start. The images are not very useful (on purpose), but good for confirming whether you have the right coin once you figure out the answers.

Searching for coins relating to interoperability, I stumbled across Aion. Take a read of the description for Aion on the CoinMarketCap website:

Aion (AION) is a multi-tier blockchain that was created to offer scalability, privacy, and interoperability. The project aims to be an integrated blockchain network that allows any public/private blockchain to transact and communicate across the network. It supports custom blockchain architectures, and provides cross-chain interoperability through a series of connecting bridges.

Notice the purple and green of the logo and compare this to the pixelated second image of the guess the coin promo image, look familiar?

A Connection Between the Coins?

In the previous round of ‘Guess the Coin’, the two coins were related closely – Maker and Dai. It’s not a given that the new coins are, but reading up on Aion and researching its related coins lead to an interesting find.

Aion is part of the Blockchain Interoperability Alliance (BIA) alongside ICON and Wanchain. ICON is listed on COSS already, but Wanchain is not. Unfortunately, the Wanchain logo doesn’t look familiar to what we see in the promo image.

Perhaps, the relationship between the coins isn’t here this time. However, on my search for the BIA, I did come across the Business Credit Alliance Chain (BCAC). There are some similarities between the logo and promo image, plus the clue suggests BCAC could be the one?

Your Thoughts?

With minimal research, those are the two coins that would make up my guess. I’d recommend doing some further research of your own if you are serious about winning the competition. Perhaps you can find more evidence for these coins, or maybe you’ll find something else along the way.

You probably don’t want to list your guesses in the comments, but what do you think to these new competitions. It seems like they could be a few more in the future, with more opportunities for us to win CFT!
