If you remove the funds from that address, you should leave a note/message to inform people on why this was done. Yes, it should be

removed if it is unclaimed for too long, but just in case someone does find it and access that address... then they will know why it was moved.

In future, when you do this, I would include a message with the stash, to tell anyone that this treasure has a expiry date.  Wink
Yes, that is a good point.  And I did do that. You can read the letter I enclosed in the original post of this thread.



If you post this on geocaching.com it will get found pretty fast I think, most caches there don't last more than a couple of days, even in some pretty remote areas.
I've done this a few times myself. Too bad I don't live in Iceland Smiley

I tried but got very sick of their system. It requires weeks of waiting for confirmations and a stupid set of rules about how the cache needs to be set up. After like three weeks I gave up and deleted my account. It was serious ridiculous. They would ask how I will "maintain the cache". When I wrote back that this a one time thing and I can't do that, the response would take a week and be "how will you maintain the cache"?  Roll Eyes

One year left!

As per the note in the geocache I will move the bitcoin if it is unclaimed by 2018, one year from today. I think I will continue to offer a small reward for finding and photographing the cache after 2018. As far as I know the paper wallet is still just sitting there. We can see that the money has not moved anyway. If it goes unclaimed I think I will structure the next game differently. Maybe more small treasures or something fun like multiple wallets with the same private key, so that it is a race to find and move the money.



Main Treasure Unclaimed .1BTC, Main Treasure proof Photo unclaimed .01BTC
Time hidden:     119 days as of Jan. 1, 2017
BTC found:            .03BTC
BTC still hidden:     .11 (Now worth $107.55!)


 

Public address of paper wallet: https://blockchain.info/address/1E481Lk1L1hSb9ZsJu3Smcqtg6tKpVmKcq

Interesting idea!
I was wondering if anyone was trying to do this anytime soon with only QR codes.  Geocaching is a unique and a intuitive experience when someone wants more education on learning new things about Bitcoin. Since these things could endure the rain and other whether issues, there shouldn't be any problem promoting/locating.

I wouldn't be that surprised if these things were in every State and Country.

Good Job.

I recently visited Iceland and having come across this post a while ago, I thought I would go and hunt for for the geocache before leaving. But it seems like it has disappeared!

Its a shame that a ticket to Iceland is more expensive then the prize  Grin
Well Iceland is a beautiful country, it's worth going even if you didn't find OP's Bitcoin cache.

Aww. no. Sad  You were definitely in the right spot. It looks like the rock was moved. By a person, the sea?
Well, I feel I should honor the terms of this and wait till 2018.  It is possible that someone took it and has simply not moved the coin. Some person might want totally anonymous money by not revealing themselves and claiming the .01BTC photo proof.
If we get to 2018 and no claim has been made I will move the coin and pay YOU the .01BTC photo reward. You were clearly there and the first one to prove it.
I'm a little bummed about it being gone. I really wanted a complete story of what happened.  Undecided

Very nice find geschtonkenflapped!   Grin

It's a shame the cache wasn't there when you searched.  Rodeo - was the cache weighted down so it could not float away?

I placed it under a rock where I thought the sea could not wash it away. It is the rock with the x on it in this photo:
If you look at geschtonkenflapped's photo below, the rock seems to have been moved.  Huh

Interesting that most of the rocks look to be in the same place except the rock which was holding the container.

That's what I see also. Look at this other picture from page 1. I took this just before placing the rock over it. You can see the cache itself. I made it as waterproof as I could. It's in a sealed box with heavy tape over the seal.


It looks to me like it should be visible in the photo geschtonkenflapped took. It may still be around there somewhere. It may have been washed away, it may have been thrown out by someone who thought it was trash? It could also be in the possession of someone who took it and just kept the wallet. If so, they have until 2018 to move it to an address they control. Otherwise I will move it to another wallet hidden somewhere else in the world.

I am looking at a crazy game next time. I may hide identical paper wallets on a few continents. Then it becomes a race to be the first one to find and transfer. That voids the other wallets. Although I may offer small rewards for finding the voided wallets.

Thanks for the update as I've been watching this project for quite some time and agreed, I was under the impression you did a good job sealing/placing the cache.  Smiley

Let me know if you're interested in having others help with hiding items in other continents as I'd be available for East Coast US cache placement.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I have been away. I will consider your offer as I get a plan together. However I have to figure out a way to do this that does not open the opportunity to cheat. It's not that I would not trust you, but ideally there should be no need for trust and no way to even theoretically cheat.
In any case it will be January before the next cache is ready. I am currently looking at places in Africa. However I'm still in the planning phase.

Anyway thanks for the offer. Perhaps there is a fun role for you in some crazy game. When that time comes I can send you a PM in any case. I also want to see someone find these caches and tell the story.

This is a really cool concept! I learned about geocache 2 years ago and I was amazed by amount of treasures hidden on the globe. I would go find it if I could but iceland isn't particulary nearby Smiley

Good Job.
I have heard about this activity about 4-5 years ago, when geocaching was not so popular.
I was very interested about the idea of looking for real treasures, that different people have hidden across the city, and the suburbs.
I even wanted you buy required equipment, but I have dropped this idea a little bit later, and I sometimes regret it- it would be a great hobby for me!

Usage of bitcoin for such a game is a great idea, it may reward all those people who are really willing to look for it, and the bounty is really attractive!

OP, wonderful idea and great spin around the concept of geocaching. If you ever do this "crazy" game, I may be able to help placing it either somewhere on the southeastern tip of Asia, or on the island of Borneo (I'm from there and return every now and then) where there is a lot of wilderness.

Haha !! I remember this before bitcoin was invented I think ? The local radio station his things for geocashers to find as a game and there was a prize at the end.

Having the same thing but using bitcoin just makes sense and is an obvious move so that's great. I hope you guys are enjoying yourself. It would be great if you could place a game over the map to make it even more immersive. Like VR GPS.

Well, I'm in Iceland right now staying in a hotel not far from this spot.  If anyone wants me to, I'll drive to the anchor in the next day or two and thoroughly investigate, just in case the rocks shifted around or something.  Shall I?

With kind regards,

@Starhop, Hey what did you find out? Was it still there?

And to anyone who may have found the cache, remember to mover it to a wallet you control by Jan. 1st. If it is not claimed I will be moving it to another remote place on planet Earth.
