im mining on bitcorepool.cc, you should try it.

Anything but. https://chainz.cryptoid.info/btx/#!extraction do you want to make it reach 50% again?

It's the address with boob in it.

LOL, the address with boob in it!

By the way, UMine and Omegapool are good too with regular payouts. I'm mining on both at the moment.

Hi...In ccminer it has Bitcore as bitcore algo. Is it bitcore or timetravel10 plz?  Thx Smiley

Hi. It's the Bitcore algo, which was originally named TimeTravel10. Maybe it's a typo or it has been changed to save space, but you should just put it like this in your .bat file and everything should be OK:

Code:
ccminer -a bitcore -o stratum+tcp://server:port -u wallet_address -p password


Edit: More clear now.
Yes thx...What happened was..there is a timetravel10 update. So dev named timetravel10 update... another coin.. to timetravel and named BITCORE algo bitcore...which is really timetravel10. Smiley

Yeah things like this can get confusing sometimes. What I normally do is with every new version of miners coming out, the first thing I do is reading the help file/instructions that come with them and go from there. Because any changes made to the software are usually documented in its help files (should be anyway!).

UMine is indeed a good choice. Omegapool = Bitcorepool. They tried to make them look like different pools at first but it was obvious they were being run by the same people and soon they officially merged.

I don't understand this puzzle. I opened the site and was presented an image on that page.
what are we supposed to do with that image? I don't see any peculiar part resembling private key
will there be any clue given after a few days?


Link to puzzle:
https://bitcore.cc/contest/

My try, hopefully helps someone to get better ideas:

Clues:

Audio
Image
Colors

_Audio_ is looney tunes soundtrack (my guess LTO in lto.mp3 means Looney Tunes Opening)

reverse _Image_ search gives "mess with your brain"
http://cdn.emgn.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Pictures-That-will-mess-with-your-brain-4.jpg

The Brain is Looney tunes character.

Bitcore _Color_ is pink.

Pinky and the Brain are looney tunes characters


Additional points:
If original image is Brain, and bitcore is Pinky, then given image on the puzzle site indeed represent Pinky and the Brain.
Also the original illusion image somewhat resembles looney tunes theme (circles around big circle in the middle):
http://www.belcourt.org/sm_files/LooneyTunesweb.jpg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zIRDJLOJyw
Channel logo and name have "CC" - bitcore is on "cc" domain.

So I was thinking that private key would be found on secret url such as https://bitcore.cc/pinky-and-the-brain (or whatever is the password we have to find before private key),
however there are no other indicators what url should look like, or even where to input password in case we find one (note I'm not talking about private key here).

(but since I'm stuck, I believe I'm on the wrong path, thus interpreted the clues wrong)



If Jon created the puzzle, assuming he is core dev then I presume he wasn't paying much attention to the image size, just get the puzzle done.
Thus huge image size is probably not a clue.
As well as other numbers such as mp3 length because they seem to lead nowhere.


Afair they claim puzzle difficulty is "medium",
thus I believe password (or private key) is not hidden in the file because not many people know how to use particular softwares for decrypting such clues.
After all we have audio file AND image file, thus much more work required (seeing that noone cracked it yet, I guess I'm correct about this).


Possible clues that lead me nowhere:

25BTX_ori.png - trippy image, what does "ori" mean?
res: 1000x1000
size: 2,2 MB (2156118 bytes)

audio length is 18 seconds

Javascript:
var colors = ["red", "orange", "yellow", "green", "blue", "indigo", "violet", "gray", "black"];
window.setInterval([...], 2000);  
 
css:
transition: background-color 2.1s; //2.1 second transition

Porky is a pig, and pigs are pink.
We can share puzzle only to twitter -> Tweety is looney tunes character

"Mess with your mind/brain" could somehow refer to Brainwallet

I am afraid the puzzle is much more crypto cipher than logically looking for the path like you do. Don't forget that when you use binary view and load up the lto.mp3 file, looking on hexa decimal values translated to ASCII, you see at the beginning ID3.....vPRIV....PeakValue....PRIV.... That seems more like crypto cipher clue, right? I was thinking more like looking for some peak values of that .mp3 peak frequency spectogram or something like that... or maybe there is some tool to see some peak values of colours in the image? Just a thought...

I think bitcore is ready to climb into the TOP100 very soon.
Did not go as low as predicted.

Perhaps you are right (I didn't check because I found no indications wrt looking at files with particular tools),
but I gave my reasoning why I believe it's not the case.

Afaics you are focused only on .mp3 for now?
And yet you struggle which tools to use, and can't make nothing of it.
IMO then there should be clues about which tools to use. Try looking for that.

Now if you are indeed correct, you would also need to do something similar to the image.
And why then would this be a basic puzzle?
How many people have skill to do it?

Hint is "dont forget the Music !" which implies that something else is also a clue.

Can PeakValue and other strings also be found in other mp3 files? see edit below
Did you try downloading original mp3 (or just take first 18 seconds from the youtube video, and save it as mp3) and compare to lto.mp3?


EDIT:
https://twitter.com/Bitcore_BTX/status/992312346734247937
> We didn’t expect that this could be a challenge too.

IMO messing with files like that without clues about which tools to use is challenging.
So it has to be something simpler than that.

EDIT 2:




So probably not a clue, but ordinary tags?
All of the presented strings could be found here:

Some of my versions of the private key:

importprivkey REDORANGEYELLOWGREENBLUEINDIGOVIOLETGRAYBLACKLOONEYTUNES
importprivkey ROYGBIVGB25BTXLT
importprivkey :DKFM
importprivkey KeyFunMusic

They were too simple, I'm afraid.  Wink

Afaik private keys can't be arbitrary.
It's probably random value with fixed length:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Private_key#An_example_private_key

Thus it's possible that it can be found inside the mp3 file for example,
and other clues would lead to line number(s) where it (or its parts) is located.

I did not try that and at this point, to be honest, I am somehow discouraged to continue. I will probably wait if there is any clue from devs after noone wins for a few days.

My thoughts were this - in hexa .mp3 there is clue to look for peak values. so that is why music is important - it contains clue. And now in something else (probably picture) we have to find some peak value (of what?), to be able to get another clue or maybe even translate some peak values to the private key...

Anyway, I am just saying how I was thinking, it might be completely wrong... When I googled and read something about hiding files inside .png and I found out the whole new world of steganography, I decided I dont have enough time for this Smiley

I am helping, and actively participating in voting on Cryptocorez and Getadcoin. We have strongest community created with this airdrop, and I think that our comunity, that didnt droped their profit, can make BTX in top 10 coins.

I submitted my vote, but I don't think this is an honest vote. I suspect that someone could write a script that would generate as many emails as required and vote an arbitrary number of times. Therefore, the first 3 winners are likely already known (and were known at the very outset of this vote), so all our efforts may be in vain.

I don't have a lot of faith in such things.

no need for script. disposable email addresses can be used, like i did
