Bntyhntr Launch: Exciting Digitalized Treasure Hunt on Algorand

As of Tuesday the 23rd of January the Algorand application known as 'Bntyhntr' (pronounced as bountyhunter) has been launched to the public.

Vybe is the company behind the new and exciting application, which lets users create and claim bounties for physical and digital locations, such as hiding them in in video games or YouTube video, or on social media platforms. In order to achieve this Vybe utilizes the Algorand Blockchain. 

Vybe was founded 6 months ago in August of 2022 and their team currently consists of 12 members.

Find The QR Code And Earn Money

Bntyhntr allows you to create a QR code and load it with a bounty that people can scan with their phone to claim. When they do, money is automatically and instantly sent to their digital Algorand wallet. The bounties can be as big as you want, or less than a penny. 

“It’s gamified advertising,” Vybe Sales and Marketing Director Gary Ahrens said, “We built it for creators so they can attract people to their pages, tweets and videos. It’s also just fun.” 

It’s like a digital treasure hunt,” Vybe Lead Developer Ravi Dhar added, “You can look at the BNTY list to see where the BNTYs are, then go hunt and scan them for money. You have to get them before other people do.

Algorand Blockchain Makes Bntyhntr Possible

Vybe uses blockchain and cryptocurrency technology to make this possible. More specifically, Bntyhntr runs on the Algorand blockchain. Users are paid in VYBE, which can be kept or swapped for other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, ALGO or USDC on the AlgoFi (VYBE-Algo) and Pact (VYBE-USDC) decentralized exchanges (DEXs).

“Once you scan the BNTY - Boom. You’re paid. Vybe Chief Operating Officer Blake Marum said. The transactions are fast and cheap due to Algorand advanced blockchain technology. Microtransactions like these aren’t possible with banks and credit cards. But they are with blockchains and cryptocurrency.” he added.

BNTYs On Social Media As a JPEG

BNTYs can be posted anywhere you can post a jpeg. You can, for example, post BNTYs on your social media sites, hide one like an Easter egg in your YouTube video, or place one in a video game linked to your gamer tag. 

You can also post them at physical locations, like a concert or conference to reward people for coming, or geocache one for a treasure hunt. “This empowers creators,” Vybe Developer Belmar “The Beast” said, “and gamifies micro-transactions.”
