I think the answer of this puzzle is in the bitcoin white paper... i will try to brute force that.

brute forcing is not good way for solving this puzzle. assume the white paper has 100 distinct words, total number of combinations is: 100! / (100-8)! = 7.50306389818e+15 . assume you have a good computer and it can compute 1000 combinations per second, total time of computing will be: 7.50306389818e+12 seconds= 237920 years.

Yeah, there is just too many possible combinations, if anyone is going to bruteforce this, we need some hints.

Tried these without luck:
IJustWonOneBitcoinForSolvingThis
DidIJustWinOneBitcoinSolvingThis
OnlyNatashaOHaveTheAnswerForThis
YouReallyBelieveWeCanTellYouThis
NoOneHaveTheAnswerToThisQuestion
ThisPuzzleNeedTwoHintsToBeSolved

Looked at the question once again, and maybe we should start looking into a "Natasha" in either a book, film og a game? it would make sense if that .txt really meant we should look at at something written.

There is a book "Natasha" by David Bezmozgis, in the preview of this book, the surname of Natasha is not mentioned, i've come up emptyhanded looking for a pdf or a epub file of that particular book
https://www.amazon.com/Natasha-Other-Stories-David-Bezmozgis/dp/0312423934

If we are looking for a person in either a movie or a TV show, there is these 3:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4563266/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0453521/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3866526/

the last mentioned movie is based on the book

No surname of the persons in these movies is mentioned, so they might be a lead to get this information about that comb?

I have not been able to find any games matching a playable figure "Natasha"...

I had in mind another kind of brute force. What i did was:

Code:
a1=(words count in wp.txt)
a=(a1 - 8)
for b in (sequence 1 to $a)
do
take words from $b to $b+8, if the sum is 32 char then save it on a file
done

Good work.

Some of those phrases aren’t CamelCase though. Not criticising, just an observation

Code:
-----BEGIN BITCOIN SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Ok, here's a 1BTC puzzle.

The question is the following:

WhyTheCombOfNatashaOtomoskiHas21Teeth?.txt

The solution is a 32 characters long plain-text (the private key).

Hint: 8 camel case english words, no special symbols

Happy puzzling!

The coin is still in the address which means no one could not solve the puzzle hehe
I am getting an inspiration to learn about the coding side of Bitcoin I think. I can not guarantee anything coz I easily give up LOL

Have fun guys.

Cheers :-)

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5096267.msg49599982#msg49599982

there are billion billion billion of these sentences. This puzzle has no logic, just solve by guessing. So nobody can solve it. OP should solve it or should close this topic to save time of everybody


there are many ways of brute forcing that limit the number of results, so don't count it out.

tell me just one way of brute forcing that limit the number of results for this puzzle?

There are certain words that have a low probability of being used. using possible hints from the puzzle, among other things.

"low probability" is probability, not help and you think it is "low probability" but OP doesnt think so. Yes after use "possible hints" i see billion billion billion of these sentences. What are "other things"?

Other things are what I'm trying out. Can't give away all the hints Wink Also, a few billion is nothing and quite easy to test for brain wallets.

If it is a puzzle
Then we only need these characters "WhyTheCombOfNatashaOtomoskiHas21Teethtxt"

If it is a riddle
it can be any character and I don't think that's possible to solve

If it's both (what I think) then we need
WhyTheCombOfNatashaOtomoskiHas21Teethtxt
To be 32 chars example:
hyheombfatashatomoskias21eethtxt
Then make words out of that

Post like these is somehow interesting enough to hook up somebody into thinking. Its good to keep the brain working sometimes. Its just enjoying, hope everyone else feels the same way too. By the way its fun to see how one forum member searched a photo with 21 teeth but failed because 20 teeth was only seen. Very nice and funny effort. OP maybe you can give some of your bitcoin to him? Just joking though!

...

wow! it is a brilliant way to reduce number of combinations Smiley

Thanks but wasn't enough to get the right answer. At least i had developed a system to make brainwallet brute force to text files, maybe the code is useful for someone to solve this puzzle...

Code:
#Code in Unix BashScript
rm -rf bfResult.txt bfClean.txt;
cat bf.txt | tr -dc '[:alnum:]\n\r''\n ' | tr -d [0-9] >> bfClean.txt
for y in {a..z};
do
sed -i "s/ $y/ $(echo "$y" | tr '[:lower:]' '[:upper:]')/g" "bfClean.txt"
done
z1=$(cat bfClean.txt | wc -w)
z=$(echo "$z1-8" | bc)
for a in $(seq 1 $z)
do
c=$(echo "$a+7" | bc)
b=$(cat bfClean.txt | cut -d " " -f$a-$c)
if [ "$(echo "$b" | wc -m)" = "40" ]; #40 because is the 32+spaces
then
echo $b;
echo $b >> bfResult.txt;
fi
done

By the way, i think Op should drop another hint.  Grin

I wrote Natasha Otomoski on youtube and this single video came out. I do not know if it helps solve the puzzle or not.  Grin

I wrote Natasha Otomoski again on YouTube and this time I also saw many videos, but most of them, if not, they are all about Bitcoin and about 21 million.

This is my best guess so far with no luck :

OneToothFitForEveryMillionOfCoin
21MillionCoinsIsTheAsymptoticCap
ItWillNeverReach21MillionOfCoins
1ToothAMillionCoinFitSatoshiView

My script has already processed 1/10 of the permutations based on BIP39 word list, nothing
Another script has already processed 1/5 of the permutations based on the transcript of the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AABkJ55Zz3A page, nothing

I think I will forgive shortly

Good luck to all

considering there are 2048^8 permutations of the bip39 list, i doubt that. The number of valid possibilities using that list is ~2000x smaller (161,735,049,399,563,309,103,078 - see this post for how it was derived). my program can check 100K phrases/s and it would take ~5B years to check 10% of those.

Yes, you are right but you can downsize drastically the amount of possible permutations by :

- Keeping 1/10 of the BIP39 list (from 2048 to 230), removing all not related words (eg: Drift,Fish and Fiscal) and keeping interrsting ones (eg : satoshi, million,coin,supply, tooth, one ...)
- Preventing permutations where two words are duplicated (eg: ThisThisOneToothThisThisThisThis symptom)
- Allowing only phrase of 8 words having 32 chars
- Preventing permutations where no more than 4 instances of a word having 4 letters
- For those who believe in the sequence W T C O N O H T would be even faster to check
- many more

Ok, here's a 1BTC puzzle.

The question is the following:

WhyTheCombOfNatashaOtomoskiHas21Teeth?.txt

The solution is a 32 characters long plain-text (the private key).

Hint: 8 camel case english words, no special symbols

Happy puzzling!

I don't understand anything from this puzzle. Is it really able to get this bitcoin that finds the answer? if so I'll find 10 people and make them think for 1 month: D Are you going to give me some more clues, or is it just that? It's hard.
