This is a continuation of the popular "32BTC puzzle" - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1306983.0 - with the inclusion of the latest data updated.

The challenge was born in 2015 - then the total prize was ~32BTC total.
From 2017 - the prize pool from keyspace ranges 2^161 to 2^256 has been moved to the same number of addresses below 2^161, thereby increasing the prizes that are on them, and these values have been raised in such a way that the value of the prize from a number equal to the height of the range (e.g. address from 2^60 is 0.60BTC, 2^61 is 0.61BTC, ... 2^160 is 1.60BTC etc.). | <= Since this time - the value of the prizes has increased from 32 to over 100 BTC!

The total remaining prize pool remains to be won (as of 01/09/2019): 102.66BTC

This challenge was called Puzzle, which caused a lot of controversy among the community because of the lack of an unambiguous solution that would allow you to reach all the keys at once, which is an element necessary to store the prizes placed there.
To avoid continuing such behavior - this refreshed topic will already apply the right concept - challenge

The disposition of funds placed at each level of this challenge is not inconsistent with the law, because they were paid by the author - with the intended purpose as a form of reward for persons who will be the first to obtain the key necessary to perform such a transaction on each of the ranges.

"What the author intended?" a thought comes to mind, right?
Officially, we are talking here about the Blockchain technology security test at individual keyspace levels by practical demonstration of the time needed to reach a given level, and the techniques used by the community going hand in hand with the development of available technologies in the world.

It should be remembered that during the creation of this project (January 2015) the BTC rate was 160 USD, so you should not imagine the creator as a multimillionaire who has nothing to do with money.
Let's get to the details...

2015-01-15 - a transaction was created in blockchain (included in block 339085) containing a transfer transaction for 256 different Bitcoin addresses: https://blockchain.info/tx/08389f34c98c606322740c0be6a7125d9860bb8d5cb182c02f98461e5fa6cd15

2017-07-11 - funds from addresses 161-256 were moved to the same number of addresses of the lower range - thus increasing the amount of funds on them. This takes place in block 475240: https://www.blockchain.com/btc/tx/5d45587cfd1d5b0fb826805541da7d94c61fe432259e68ee26f4a04544384164

2019-05-31 - the creator of the "puzzles" creates outgoing transactions with the value of 1satoshi for addresses #65, #70, #75, #80, #85, #90, #95, #100, #105, #110, #115 , #120, #125, #130, #135, #140, #145, #150, #155, #160 with the aim of probably comparing the difficulty of finding a private key for the address from which such a transaction was carried out, and one that There is no transaction.

First output: take random number from 20 upto 21-1, use it as private key
Second output: take random number from 21 upto 22-1, use it as private key
Third output: take random number from 22 upto 23-1, use it as private key

The outputs relate to transactions from 2015 in which the transaction was performed for all 256 addresses.

Thanks for sharing, I guess I'll try to write some code to bruteforce some of the smallest unclaimed keys, though I don't hope to find anything, cause my CPU isn't very strong. I have a GTX 1060 gpu though, but I only know Javascript so it will be a bit hard to write a program that utilizes my gpu, but it should be possible. Should be a fun pet project that will at least provide me some experience.

there is no  more "unclaimed" keys left with a private keys in small ranges. they were all found a long time ago. now only the big ones are remaining and claiming each is getting harder exponentially as the power of 2 is incremented by one.
if you want to have fun, you can program something. i did that a while ago in c# for small ones as a "challenge" to my skills knowing there is no other reward.

The main topic post will be updated on a regular basis in the case of finding a new key or the occurrence of relevant facts. Please, do not create a garbage can, in which you will then bury yourself. If somebody still has important information, which I forgot to add to the main post (because it is known that there is a lot of data and I could forget about something) - I am asking for information in order to include it in the main post.

Thanks for starting and maintaining this thread.  Too bad you did not make it moderated so you could remove all the crap posts.  +Merit

Note you could switch your "table" in the OP to a fixed width font so it will all line up better by putting it in a "code" block like this:

Code:
This is a fixed width font
So everything will line up
nicely

Also, to avoid confusion I would remove the word "prize" from your subject and all references in the OP.

Yes, unfortunately you have to select "moderated topic" at the time you create the thread and you cannot change it after the tread is created.

It looks pretty much uniform, as expected.

The same could be said about bruteforce code. Many years there was only crappy and slow LBC, then I payed a rather modest \$450 to freelancer to fund opensource vanitygen fork.
In the same time Bitcrack was already done and also opensource, just not popular.

In result, as I can see, author of Bitcrack was donated several times with 0.1 BTC. That's better than nothing (a doubt he could use same resources as zielar)

There are few people involved in the puzzle that have resources, knowledge in programming and also "cracked" more or less puzzle addresses, so they have also money but they don`t want to share the tools like Pollard kangaroo script or other.
Like our world works, the power is in the hands of the few.

Later EDIT: Some guy asked me 0.30BTC for Pollard gpu script. Is more expensive than my car so I'll say pas

It's funny and irony, a programmer offers their services or software to crack bitcoins with some money. So why don't they crack Bitcoin themselves, I'm sure those crack software makers will get more profits.

They might not have enough hardware (or money for said hardware, don't you need in the order of terabytes of memory at this point?) to grab the remaining keys so they're better off selling the software.

Isn't it better to just give the code but have some % of the profit? Even so, when you get a code for finding private keys you gotta check it a few times to not get dumped, cuz it might be listening for you to find it, and then sweep the key to the maker of the software before you manage to do it. This "challenge" might be a great opportunity for making a botnet search for keys.

By the way, isn't it kinda scary that a few keys in 80 and 90 bit ranges were already found? Many users have passwords with less bits of security, and passwords also aren't random, so bruteforce can be optimized. Or am I missing something, and those keys were cracked with some algorithm rather than brute force?

if you want to have fun, you can program something. i did that a while ago in c# for small ones as a "challenge" to my skills knowing there is no other reward.

So, I did it and it takes 2.5 ms for me to calculate an address from a raw private key

They were bruteforced it just so happened that they were found, it's luck, just someone started close enought. There are different algos for password cracking words-list attacks for example. There's a way this puzzle is usefull, for one it proves there's no time travelers, for two it shows how secure bitcoin and other 256 bit keys are. I would choose not to generate addresses at all just sweep all the range that you go by, it would save time.

Thanks for the info regarding the "challenge". I was not sure about the right form :-) As to the percentage ranges - I took them personally into account, but I do not plan to base them in my actions, because they would be shots on the basis of statistics, and again complicating my life. It is not known whether now there will be three subsequent addresses had their key in the range of 90-100% .... and maybe even the rest of the keys below 50% :-)

It is not known whether now there will be three subsequent addresses had their key in the range of 90-100% .... and maybe even the rest of the keys below 50% :-)

these numbers just show that there is "no pattern" as where the keys stand within their corresponding ranges.

Could it be the formula is applied onto the address rather than the private keys? just a thought
