Puzzle Sites & Magazines
These are the sites I recommend doing if you are interested in puzzles. You will learn a lot about puzzle basics, ciphers, stenography, and web security.
- ae27ff by crashdemons - A good mix of entry level ciphers and puzzle techniques. These eventually get more complex. Offers about a month of fun puzzle experiences entirely for free.
- Revolute Elite by sabretooth - Over hundred+ puzzles that are a mix of math, ciphers, stego, and web exploitation. A range of beginner to expert level puzzles that will give you about a year of content for free.
- Panda Magazine (monthly subscription) - One of the most consistent and difficult puzzle series available in the world. Bi-monthly releases with dozens of new puzzles.
These are puzzles that are updated once in awhile with cryptocurrency prizes:
