Can You Solve This Pi Day Riddle? [UPDATE: Answer Revealed]

In celebration of the mathematical constant pi, earlier today we published this riddle. The answer is below.

 

 

The answer is: Marcus Goldman.

Here’s how we solved it: This is a 28-digit hexadecimal number, and you need to add some pi, so you should add the first 28 hexadecimal digits of pi (including the 3):

3243F6A8885A308D313198A2E037
