I am opening a competition for a very simple LabVIEW app with 256 boolean buttons corresponding to a bitcoin private address and a display showing the corresponding bitcoin address.
The deadline is when five participants submit a working solution. The winner will probably be the first developer to post here the link to a zip file with the working solution (VI and sub-VIs).
First participant is not capped
Second participant is capped 20%
Third participant is capped 40%
Fourth participant is capped 60%
Fifth participant is capped 80%

Only working solutions are eligible.
The mark of each of the participations will be given in %, so for example, if:

First participant gets 60%
Second participant gets 70%, being capped 20%, he only achieves 50%
Third participant gets 73%, being capped 40%, he only achieves 33%
Fourth participant gets 61%, being capped 60%, he only achieves 1%
Fifth participant gets 82%, being capped 80%, he only achieves 2%
So, first participant would win in this scenario.

Good comments and labels will considerably improve the mark given.

A brief commentary with a paragraph or two will be made for each working solution participation.

I am open to send Gavin Andersen, from the Bitcoin Foundation, the 5 BTC in advance to insure there will be a winner of it.
He just needs to accept it in this thread and I will send him the 5 BTC for the prize, with pleasure.

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!

Is this competition still going on?  I'd be interested if the offer was still valid...

Click Here to download the source of my submission.  It is created in LabVIEW 2013 but was saved in LabVIEW 2011 for maximum compatibility. 

As requested, the front panel has 256 Booleans that you can toggle.  I arranged the Booleans to represent 4 bytes per row with the MSB at the top left and LSB at the bottom right.  The "Public Key (Hex)" indicator will update in real-time as you toggle the Booleans so that you can easily see what the private key will be before you create the Bitcoin Address.  To create the Bitcoin Address simply hit the 'Convert' button and wait 5-8 seconds.

This contest is now halted and I am deciding what to do because there were no participations for more than one year and I completely forgot about this.

Why? He does whatever he wants with his Bitcoins. But to be fair, He should put up a fair bounty know since this is over a year old.

Hi, I'm the author of the LabVIEW program posted above and I still have it, in fact I've made some improvements to it so that you can either twiddle the individual boolean bits or enter in the private key directly (and the bits will update as well.) 

I'll be more than willing to put this program back up on a public download site (recommend one for me) as soon as I receive the agreed upon compensation ($100 USD) for the original program I wrote for the OP.

I'm a very experienced LabVIEW developer.  I'd be interested in downloading this function.
