Not too long ago Bitcoin wasn't worth much (USD wise) but as an early adopter I was there! Mining them on my desktop computer on a daily basis. At a later point in time I even bought more, a lot more. This was my best investment ever!


My Bitcoins quickly became a treasure chest and while I don't want to provide numbers I can tell you that Bitcoin changed my life for good.
On top of that, bitcoin airdrops were created. I thought it would be nice to give those away to someone else in the universe, as I don't need them.
Just for fun. ( In the end I got them for free too ).


Thinking about ideas on how to do this I finally created a bitcoin challenge where BTC is to be found, hidden in a digital picture.
I have to admit it wasn't as easy as I projected and I had to exchange all airdrops for BTC.
While this wasn't a easy process for all of them, creating the picture was the most difficult since I'm not a artist myself.


Today, finally, I can announce the 310 BTC Bitcoin Challenge.

Yes, that's correct, there's 310 BTC hidden in the picture.



Head over to https://bitcoinchallenge.codes/ for more details.



Good luck!

Seriously, what is the point of this? I suppose you don't intend to give any hints.  Smiley

Interesting challenge  Grin

I did not succeed in verifying your signature, probably because your address starts with 3.
Is that a multisig or a  P2SH-segwit address?

If I see no progress I will release a hint or clue but not at the moment.

You can verify the signature in a wallet like, for example, Electrum.

Friend
knows that you do not get to see the differences between "0" and "O"
Do you have any way to differentiate "O" from "0"?


thank you very much, very entertaining the game

Electrum does verify the message. Still I am very skeptical.. seems like an insane amount for a puzzle lol.

.. while solving the riddle you can find keys to 3 more BTC addresses with value. They contain 0.1, 0.2 and 0.310 BTC respectively
By looking at associated addresses, this could be:

0.31 - 3NPZiNWiD7cCfXZa1D8tnEZBPgQ884cVw7
0.2 - 1G7qsUy5x9bUd1pRfhVZ7cuB5cMUP4hsfR
0.1 - 1446C8HqMtvWtEgu1JnjwLcPESSruhzkmV

Interesting challenge. I found some clues already incl a link to register. No private key though.
What do you mean by "... the data you got so far"? I am not sure what should be included in this SHA256 hash.
Edit: "the data" could mean everything incl. your postings, the website and so on. If we are only talking about the image it could be everything incl. metadata, size, visible and hidden numbers, fields, pixels etc. in endless possibilities of combinations of these all. Makes no sense this way.

Bitcoin is not a bubble, it's the pin!

Yeah, this make no sense, if we don't know even what kind of access we're looking for, a long PK or just a mnemonic, also this person gotta try to prove that the prize is legit in a different way, otherwise i don't think the people take this serious because is a considerable amount of money.
