Obelisk

Obelisk is a new project the developers of Sia have been teasing. Nobody (except the dev team) knows what it's about yet.

More information about Obelisk will be gradually released during the week of 19 to the 23rd of June. Lead developer David has promised that by the end of Friday everyone will know what Obelisk is all about.

All currently available information has been leaked through the #obelisk channel in the Sia Slack community (see the sidebar for a link to join the Slack).

Teasers

June 18th

Lead developer David Vorick posted a strange logo in the Slack community, with the filename “obeliskComingSoon.png”.

June 19th

A larger image was posted by Zach Herbert in the #announcements channel with the title “Coming soon. #obelisk” (this is the image at the top of this article), along with a link to a new Slack channel #obelisk. David then proceeded to release some subtle hints in that channel, which are logged below under Hints.

Zach also changed his Slack status to the Obelisk emoji with the message “Hello from Sia/Obelisk HQ in Boston!”, indicating that Obelisk is the second product the team is developing.

Another interesting detail is that the channel topic for the #obelisk channel is a link to the website obelisk.tech which, at the time of writing, is just a blank page.

Hints

  • “Obelisk is not related to any other cryptocurrency projects that also happen to be using the word 'obelisk' - it is an independent thing”

  • “More will be revealed every 1-2 days, until the big event next week.”

  • “By the end of Friday, everyone will know exactly what Obelisk is, I promise that”
