What up replers!

I've got an algorithms problem for you, where you're trying to find the longest pay it forward chain of gifts.


Check the details there👆 - and comment down if you have any questions.

The first to get a solution that works (only js please!) gets a $5 bitcoin prize - include your BTC address with your solution.

Edit: @ammarbinfaisal won 🏆

Have fun!

@MrEconomical oof that was a stupid mistake, added quotes.

by pay it forward chain, I mean where person B is gifted a book by Person A, and then gifts a book to person C, after which Person C gifts a book to Person D and so on.

In this case, the chain would be A => B => C => D.

One person can appear multiple times in a chain.
