Wow, I had forgotten all about good old WC. IIRC I was the first person to commission a piece from him. I probably still have his email address and could reach out to him for clues on these coins.

edit: do not forget the Bitcoin dildo he made either...

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=864472.msg9602461#msg9602461

Lol how can anyone forget that. You definitely were the first, I reached out to a few people with the 3 or 4 bitcoin B's that he made but due to price I decided to just stick with completing the wooden coin collection. If you could throw an email out that would be pretty cool, I figured if anything he may have "Watched" his old thread with the tale laid out so I also posted a teaser linking to this more thorough thread.

I bet I couldn't even get .25BTC for my "hive" BTC

It's funny, I thought I would always forget about WC, but he never really escapes my mind.

I also commissioned a custom piece from him. A wall mount for a quarter collection, and I remember I paid 1 btc for it, but i agree with blazed, probably no chance i would even get 0.25 btc for it.

.BIG WINNER!.

I paid wc 7.5btc to design and commission an extraordinary the No.1 physical crypto coin in the world but he disappeared without any product delivered nor refund.
Chatted up on Skype, he showed some initial print slides, then vanished. The tenth coin you are looking for could be this one.

Not much of an update UPDATE:

Quite a few new eyes in the Collectibles section due to the crossover/interest from the 10 year anniversary art contest so we have an opportunity for some non regulars to see this.
The darkbox I wanted to build/have built is still non existent, I just don't have the space for it right now. Definite future plan though.

I have acquired two of the three wooden BTC's that WoodCollector sold. Myaswell add them to the collection right?


*Original WoodCollector pictures used below, I will have picture's of my own with OP quality if/when I have all three together.



In my collection:
The Hive originally owned by Blazed (Blazedout419)
Culture Cultivation originally owned by wheresmycoin

Not in my collection:
Transcendence currently owned by ducatitalia

50-100BTC is a decent price teeGUMES , I’d try and barter for the higher end of that range though  Smiley

Math may not be your strong suit so I'll help you out here.

5000BTC x 0.05 = 250BTC    this is my take
5000BTC x 0.95 = 4750BTC  this could be yours

Now you ask yourself if it is worth the 1 in a billion chance that this thing is all true.
If your offer is 50BTC to 100BTC then you still need to come up a bit before I'd even consider talking. If you meant $50 to $100 then I'm gonna have to ask you to move along.

If you took one second to read up you would know teegumes is not in the market to sell these, they are looking for the last coin.  Stop bumping this for rediculous reasons

Absolutely fascinating story, than so much for sharing. A friend sent me a link here, glad he did!
Cool piece of Bitcoin history revealed in the thread.
Here's hoping to success!

So here's an idea as far as the need to be physically next to the coins - what if they have embedded NFT chips? You my be able to tap your NFC enabled phone over the coins to see if anything registers. Also loo for invisible inks, blacklight, etc..

A great idea as well. I won't lie I've been slow to get through the many different ideas with finding the clues as I don't want my part in the story of this tale to potentially end.. but you never know if I ever found a number or some letters it'd also be such a good feeling and drive me mad searching for more..

I'm a fan of big round wood things(keep your jokes :p) and I'll be adding one of your FractalEncrypt Bitcoin Full Node Sculptures to the mix.. in a way it will be my temporary coin 10. Such an amazing piece and welcome to the forum.

Patience is a virtue.

Thank you for this quest and (rekindling) the tale of treasure. Inspiring.
Perfect display of patience, resourcefulness and persistence.
You have earned those coins and I think you made them more valuable, good luck with the hunt for #10 and clues.

I was here - in a past forum life - and saw this unfold as well, like others who commented here.
Quite the thing... A promise of treasure...

There should be treasure. If not in this adventure, maybe the next...
BTC marks the spot.

Thanks so much for the kind welcome! Crazy to see this come full circle (LOL).

So I ran some simple blockchain analysis on Blockchair, I was looking for (and I believe someone in the thread suggested this) 1000 unique outputs holding exactly 5 BTC (that are still spendable) that were created between July 2014 and April 2015 (I arbitrarily figured these dates may be when WoodCarver would have issued his coins), and I got 630-ish results;
https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/outputs?s=value(desc),time(desc)&q=value(500000000),time(2014-07..2015-04),is_spent(false)#
This means he probably didn't create them during this time, or at least not all of them at once.

Then I ran the numbers back to January, now we have plenty of results, about 1300+ 5 BTC outputs that are still spendable.
https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/outputs?s=value(desc),time(desc)&q=value(500000000),time(2014-01..2015-04),is_spent(false)#

I think we can narrow these results to see if maybe a batch of 1000 was created at once, (via script) it seems that would be the way someone would generate 1000 addresses, or no? Or...in essence we're looking at the funding dates of the addresses, not the creation dates. so how would you think someone would fund 1000 addresses? At once? over time?

Thanks so much for the kind welcome! Crazy to see this come full circle (LOL).

So I ran some simple blockchain analysis on Blockchair, I was looking for (and I believe someone in the thread suggested this) 1000 unique outputs holding exactly 5 BTC (that are still spendable) that were created between July 2014 and April 2015 (I arbitrarily figured these dates may be when WoodCarver would have issued his coins), and I got 630-ish results;
https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/outputs?s=value(desc),time(desc)&q=value(500000000),time(2014-07..2015-04),is_spent(false)#
This means he probably didn't create them during this time, or at least not all of them at once.

Then I ran the numbers back to January, now we have plenty of results, about 1300+ 5 BTC outputs that are still spendable.
https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/outputs?s=value(desc),time(desc)&q=value(500000000),time(2014-01..2015-04),is_spent(false)#

I think we can narrow these results to see if maybe a batch of 1000 was created at once, (via script) it seems that would be the way someone would generate 1000 addresses, or no? Or...in essence we're looking at the funding dates of the addresses, not the creation dates. so how would you think someone would fund 1000 addresses? At once? over time?

This is EXACTLY why I went public with this thread, I never even thought about this. Definitely need someone more tech-literate than myself to look into it.
It honestly makes me so happy to see other people get excited about this and share their ideas.. it's often months with nothing but every once in awhile someone with a fresh set of eyes comes along and drops a bombshell idea or new set of information. I absolutely love it.

When I get home to my notes in a few days I'll chime in with some thoughts/ideas with the blockchain analysis stuff and some WoodCollector timeline.
