Title: Transaction puzzle
Post by: AGK12 on April 01, 2018, 08:10:04 PM
How can i create a bitcoin transaction puzzle?

Do i have to use a special address or can i use a regular p2pkh and its utxos?

Any address would do.
Just encode the private key or mnemonic phrase  in the puzzle.

Or if you're using P2SH address, find a way to encode the redeem script in the puzzle, while giving out the private keys (and order), or encode the private keys and give out the redeem script.

The Bitcointalk community loves crypto puzzles so share your puzzle when you're done.

I won't believe any puzzle posted on April 1st.

Serious answer: you can do anything you want. Have a look at the (easy) puzzles I've made a while back:
90,000 Satoshi puzzle (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1598884.msg16057452#msg16057452)

I wasn't planning on doing this anymore.

You can search for some older puzzles (example (https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/kzpqzz/heres-the-solution-to-the-3-year-old-dollar50000-bitcoin-puzzle)). Even though they're solved already, you can spend a good amount of time trying them on your own.
