Accidentally stumbled in the Internet for the project: https://lbc.cryptoguru.org.

Found a page with their trophies. I have a question - did they actually find private keys to all the addresses listed or is it a fake?

Large Bitcoin Collider is a scam created with a purpose of infecting machines of Bitcoin users, read this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/65uoaq/do_not_run_the_large_bitcoin_collider_client_its/

And in this article you can read why LBC is nowhere near to "cracking bitcoin" as some scared people tried to tell: https://breadwallet.com/blog/large-bitcoin-collider/

no they are not fake, they found private keys that has been placed there to be found.
private keys are just numbers. starting from 1 to a huge number[1]. as a puzzle someone placed some funds on some of these private keys starting from 1 up, randomly selected a number in that range.

example:
if the PK is between 1-10 it is easy to find
if the PK is between 10-100 ...
the PK is between 100-1000
the PK is between 1000-2000
the PK is between 1000000000-... it is harder to find
so on...
until it becomes impossible to find if the private key was generate truly random and using a proper bitcoin wallet client (such as core, electrum, multibit, bitaddress, etc)

if i recall correctly these ranges were of power of 2 meaning 1-2, 2-4, 4-16 and so on.

also later we found out that whoever ran this code on their computer opened up a backdoor for anyone to run any kind of script/code on their computer and infect them.

[1] i forgot what that biggest number is but according to wiki it is this hex: 0xFFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFE BAAE DCE6 AF48 A03B BFD2 5E8C D036 4140

As far as I know, even with quantum pcs they cannot reverse public keys, they definitely cant do that with hashes.

I think the trophies they had on the webpage you linked OP are fake and might just open a backdoor program to infect your computer. Don't ever believe that it is real because for now even a supercomputer cannot reverse public keys so it is impossible for them to do it unless they invented a new tech to really reverse public keys which is impossible for now. Don't ever try download the lbc client, it might contain a backdoor to obtain your private keys.
