Glad to see you guys still sticking around.

Currently I am running a collider on carefully chosen words, though I do not have high hopes on it. Mainly it's because I want to have a program running in the background while I focus on the main theory. Assuming it's correct, I have got some serious information to give away. There are many ideas to test, many hours to meditate and contemplate upon the question. I have been thinking about it every single day, almost dedicated my time to it.

Eventually I might give up. But I am willing to sell all of my progress and clues for 0.1 BTC for you who value the art of poetic and pragmatic answers to these puzzles. It is a risk. You do not know whether I am correct. Neither whether I am speaking the truth. Please, be aware that I am aware of this inter-being problem too. But if I am correct, this information is basically 50%-75% of the puzzle solved and you are still 0.9 BTC up, assuming you've managed to solve the rest of it. A whole bitcoin is a lot. Even 10% cuts it for me. Take it as a way of cooperation. I can then drop all my effort and focus on other things.

The offer stands. You know how to contact me. Only serious inquiries, as I am not dic*ing around. Make sure you have got a trust in your skills.

For the rest of you, sorry for being a cold-headed selfish dude. It is frustrating and I hope you understand. It has been half a year and nobody has made progress. Until now.

P.S: I am willing to drop the price to 0.05 per person if more people show interest.



Well  IMO,   i cant  expose  that half baked solution,  lets see if we got same thoughts

.txt  part  refers  to look into some text file, like  White Papers etc or code, and the other possibility is .txt refers to run a Programs that creates a multiple keys from a combination of  words and then safe that progress into the .txt format file,  like its a standard when we brute force or do the cmd thing we must save progress as .txt,,,,    JUST SAYIN   Grin

and  Yes  it completely  refers to the total supply of coins  WHY  did Satoshi Nakamoto  had to set 21 Million coins,  why not 22 million or 20 million,

now here comes the COMB part and teeth,  well  he  also  messed up the SatoshiNakamoto  into  Natasha Otomoski just to make a sense of Female Name, because there is a Word of COMB  and  teeth, 

The  Question is  why Comb ?   he  should have used some other way to Express 21 Million Coins,  Why  COMB ?   lets  just focus on COMB

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.
