Hello Hunters of the Secret Challenge,

considering the problem with the Slack chat history we decided to create a bitcointalk.org thread where we are going to collect the clues for the secret challenge and/or the links to these clues.
We will also try to gather all useful articles, post's etc. about the secret challenge, which could be a help in solving it.
Dont forget to visit us at our Slack #secret_challenge, Twitter @Peculium and Peculium Facebook page to possibly find new clues!
Additionaly you can join the >> Peculium Bounty campaign << and earn PCL tokens while doing exactly that - a perfect win-win situation!


With this i wish everyone good luck and a lot of fun on the hunt for the 1.000.000 €!!! Wink

Here are the clues that were found so far:



1. The Memristor
(Wikipedia)





2. Alessandro Volta (Wikipedia)

Pioneer of electricity and power, who is credited as the inventor of the electrical battery.




Possible link: Nvidia Volta



3. Pinched hysteresis loop / similarity with loop, sine-wave function and "P" from Peculium

The memristor leads to hysteresis. The word means lagging behind. Hysteresis is not only used in physics to describe magnetic behavior, it can also be applied to economics:
When some negative shock reduces employment in a company or industry, fewer employed workers then remain. As usually the employed workers have the power to set wages, their reduced number incentivizes them to bargain for even higher wages when the economy again gets better instead of letting the wage be at the equilibrium wage level, where the supply and demand of workers would match. This causes hysteresis: the unemployment becomes permanently higher after negative shocks.






4. Geometrical patterns

Forecasts: Hysteresis, Time series, ARIMA

https://wallpapertag.com/geometric-wallpaper



5. Quetzal

I UM 3 6 9 E V E





6. Tesla



"If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe." - Nikola Tesla



This hardware will be used to create a relatively affordable AI.

--> Volta + Tesla = ?



7. AIΞVE -> EVE = Equilibrium, Values, Ethics

From YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kg2vYFJ_R50
Thanks to AIEVE (Artificial Intelligence Balance Ethical Values), we introduce a formidable ability to bring savings into what it aspires for in the most beautiful way: stability and security.
 
Balance Ethical Values is translated to English from French equilibre, éthique, valeurs.

Also: Ethical parameters to enable transparancy and balance.



8. Saving is a part of us. It's one of our first subconscious needs; it's encrypted in our genes

Obj(Θ)=L(θ)+Ω(Θ) Objective Function containing training loss and regularization.

Thanks for that, it was complicated and even impossible recently to retrieve information on the Slack channel.
Anyway it's hard to find the secret Wink

Arguably  you are right and we have to look for their general feature. I would suggest "symmetry". Seems it is general for clues that were given for us.

Now it was the third time I thought about the challenger. The first two times it felt like I have to talk about rocket-science what I have no clue about.
Well, this time, I´d tried to keep it simple:

AIEVE might come from A.I. Eve...
Let´s say it´s meant to be Eve, her, according to one special theory the first woman alive, the mother of all of us.
Maybe "AIADAM" would have been to obvious for a secret challenge? Maybe.

So, if that´s the direction, where "AIEVE" comes from, eat the whole apple instead of just taking a bite - this might infringe Apple´s copyright... Wink

The pattern of the dates posted starts of Monday, Friday, Saturday, Wednesday, Sat, Wed, Sat, Wed, Sun, Wed, Sun, Wed. Wednesday appears most...

Wednesday is associated with the god Mercury and planet Uranus, whatever that can help...

Originally, I was on the path of saying the flower of life, knot theory or ribbon theory, string theory or singularity but I'm still stumped for now...

Also found that "plasma" means the fourth physical state of matter (the other three are solid, liquid and gas). This state represents a gas containing atoms and/or molecules as in an “ordinary” gas plus some or all of the following: excited atoms, excited molecules, charged particles including positive and negative ions, radicals (these are characterized by the presence of a lonesome electron in the outer valence shell and may therefore be unstable and chemically reactive) and photons or light. Though containing charged particles the plasma as a whole is neutral.

Ozone is O3... Anyways, that's where I'm at for now...

Is it the interpretation of the something like AI will bring forth the EVE of Singularity which would allow to anticipate and avoid future hysteresis and it's a female for Eve and also because they give birth? Just a shot in the dark...

Or that the name Peculium is from the Latin "private property" and that AI would could help monetize the infinite, such as zero point or vacuum energy?

Or maybe just Ether or Ethereum, the concept of an unknown intelligence that surrounds us like, or more like a "couple" using an oxygen atom in chemistry, basis for the smart contract, which tur a it into private property, back to the name...?

I'm givin'er everythin' she's got Cap'n!
