Info: What is this mammoth 275 GB file, I hear you ask? Read on!
0) What is this contest?
A) It's called Upfiring BFST Treasure Hunt. It comes with a 275 GB .ufr file. It contains an effective reward of 5,500 UFR for the first person to download it and decrypt it. This will be a stress test with a) massive files and b) fast connections to see how the Upfiring protocol and dApp holds up. It is also accompanied by a smaller 1 GB file, but more on that later. The prize money is sponsored by Sq and Foosty on Upfiring telegram.
1) What are the contents of the file?
A) PJVader, a member of the enthusiast home theater community AVS Forums, created a collection of demo videos with short clips from movies, TV and music videos to showcase your system. Only short clips are used, so this is legal under fair use. In total, there are over 300 files totaling 275 GB. Ah, and of course, an encrypted Ethereum wallet with 7,000 UFR + 0.02 ETH. The price for this will be only 1 UFR.
2) What's the prize for decrypting the file first?
A) The above mentioned Ethereum wallet containing 7,000 UFR + 0.02 ETH is the prize. There's a separate, smaller .ufr file with the password to this wallet priced at 1,500 UFR, so your effective winnings will be 5,500 UFR.
4) What about runners-up?
A) I get it, not everyone has a super fast connection, hundreds of GBs of space, or running their machines 24x7. So here's an incentive to those who didn't make it, and to the community at large. There'll be a smaller file with the password to use the loaded Ethereum wallet priced at 1,500 UFR. The winner of the race will need to pay this 1,500 UFR to everyone seeding the smaller file in order to decrypt it. The smaller file will be available on UFRIndex as "Upfiring BFST Treasure Hunt Password". This smaller file contains the decrypted contents from the official Stress Test #1.
5) What if this is a scam and I end up losing 1,500 UFR?
A) Well, you'll just have to trust me (Sq on Telegram). No risk, no reward, amirite?
6) What do I need to participate in this test?
A) A fast internet connection, 300 GB free space to download the file, and 300 additional GB free space to decrypt it in case you're the winner. To promote decentralization and diversity, the files will be seeded from the opposite side of the world from North America - so Asian, African and Australian friends will have a slight edge. But ultimately, the fastest connection will win.
