Two keys unlock the chest of gold That’s made of ones and zeroes And the one that holds them both Will be the thousand dollar hero
Thought to note in the Six Questions, Lukas provided the meaning to 'ones and zeros'--
I have been asked about whether a person needs to be especially fluent in computing or coding, and the answer is no. The line “Two keys unlock the chest of gold / That’s made of ones and zeroes” simply refers to the fact that the treasure is stored digitally, not that it requires a knowledge of binary language to retrieve it.
Just to try to help some people working on this hunt. Considering Lukas has a computer science background like myself one very basic thing that you would learn in a computer science course is what a "KEY" is. You don't in any way need to be an expert in coding to understand the basics of Keys.
The main type of keys are:
Foreign Keys Key Field Primary Key
There are others, but those would be more surface level ones that I feel could be hinted at in this stanza.
The one thing to focus in on is the "made of ones and zeros" To me I am interpreting that line as the keys are encrypted. Certain types of keys are not encrypted, but a password field on a website is always encrypted. A username field is almost always encrypted and in this example When saying "username field" username is a key. Same thing for "password field" the key in that example is password. A field is just a fancy way of describing the box you type your password and username into. A key in this context is the name of that field. I think there is somewhere you will ultimately have to put in a Username and password to access the money. Wether that be a website he set up himself and by logging in you know you are the winner or an existing site where he could have put 1000 into an account that you could withdraw if you knew the username and password. The more likely is a site he set up himself because he could make a password and username field have unlimited tries where most websites limit the amount of tries before you are locked out and have to reset an account. So besides just the keys I believe you also have to figure out the website to put those keys.
