Looks like the puzzle was solved.

Can the people who solve it to give the solution after the tx is confirmed?

Yes  the Puzzle has been solved  after sharing it to the Major Crypto Puzzle group on Discord

Holy moly! They finally did it. I'm curious as to what the answer was as well because I spent at least 2 hours thinking about it, entering different word combinations into brainwallet and so forth.

It was real all along. I kind of suspected as much.

Wow damn! I thought this puzzle would never get solved, it only took 7 months though.  Grin

I had my fair share of guesses, theories and whatnot. My main lead was the genesis block and the Times article, but it turned out to be a dead end.

Anyway, I would appreciate (like everybody else) to know the answer/solution.

Oh, and congrats to whoever figured it out!!!

SheHadTheIdeaWhileCombingHerHair

If creator make new puzzle with the same rules I will publish how I found solition

Looks to be correct. That's basically relevant words to the puzzle + most common english ones. I guess I'll have to wait for more poetic puzzles. There's no need to hide my approach now. Here is the overall progress.

If you type "WhyTheCombOfNatashaOtomoskiHas21Teeth? filetype:txt" into Google, a file called big.txt will pop up. That's what I believed the .txt part to be. You can browse it yourself, but here are some basic facts:
1) There is a woman called Natasha Rostova, whom I believed to be Natasha Otomoski.
2) Interesting paragraph: "Too dear!" Natasha remarked. "How pleased the children will be
and Mamma too! Only you need not have bought me this," she added,
unable to suppress a smile as she gazed admiringly at a gold comb
set with pearls, of a kind then just coming into fashion.
3) Natasha Rostova was born in 1792 and married Pierre Bezukhov in 1813. She was 21 years old at that time.
4) At the end of the file big.txt, there is a list of the most common words, and in the file count_big.txt (change the URL) there is a number of how many times they were used.
5) some code at the very very end of big.txt? (That's why I hoped the answer would be big-picture-thinking, not technical, perhaps irrelevant)

My best tries:
TheCombDoesNotHaveTwentyOneTeeth
ItHasOneToothForEveryNatashasAge
NatashaMarriedSatoshiAs21YearOld
OneToothEqualsAYearOfNatashasAge
SheGotMarriageInOneEightOneThree
SheHadMarriageInOneEightOneThree


P.S: Congratulations to the winner, but again, it could be blockladder themselves after seeing a marketplace starting around their riddle (aka me, quoting, selling my half-baked solution). Now you understand why this all seemed like the correct approach, or just one huge coincidence. Reality works in strange counter-intuitive ways. The answer seems... just a bit off.

See you in another life, guys!

Yes, it was a dumb puzzle indeed. Regardless, somebody still found the answer. Congratulations to them.

Bit disappointing.
It is not even a proper answer to the question.
And no clever tricks either, just guess until you have it...  as far as I see it.

Still, Nice of Blockladder to put up a Bitcoin.
And congrats to whoever found it (if it wasn't blockladder himself)

It was still fun to be puzzling.
:-)

No comment.
It's not worth talking!
I wasted almost a month as if to count the time I spent on finding the answer. Not only that ... I wasted because this shit doesn't make sense. Where's the fucking answer to this fucking question? Where does anything even make sense here and what did the hint have in common with any clue?
I am not even afraid to say that it was misleading, because it referred to issues that have even more in common with the purpose of hints (no special symbols) - what for? it would be more common if the author wrote "but I shit press" than what he thought was a pseudo hint.
Even now, when I know the correct sequence of eight words - I have no idea if I would ever think that these are the words.

There are two possibilities:
1) The author himself organized this circus and has now withdrawn funds, achieving the advertising of more than one product that Google has directed in search of participants' answers
2) WasThisCombOwnerNothing4HisTwat!.mp3 <== such a small summary on my part that more closely matches the answer to the puzzle in every respect than the valid answer (maybe except .mp3, but finally .txt was a shit like the rest)

I wish everyone the least unpleasantness like this pathetic puzzle.
See ya.

watashi-kokoto hinted that the puzzle might have a shit solution. Four of the three-letter words are suggested by him in this post. That picture on page 1 is basically the private key itself.  Grin  I knew watashi-kokoto was blockladder from the very start but I thought all his posts/clues are a way for him to divert us from the real solution...guess not.

I can't believe someone did it, the hints we get doesn't help at all, but i want to congrats the one who solves it.

By the way, it would be nice if he could give us the method he uses to find the right answer. Congrats again and enjoy those $10k
