Still don't understand how that will lead us to the 10 BTC !?

How will the winner get this 10 BTC ? GoWest send it directly / manually to his address or what ? Redeem a private key they found on Internet ? Where the moneys at ... LOL ?

It's completely out of my hands.  It will be automated for the person that finds them.

Can you at least tell us how ? How do we know you are not just a puppet account of GoWest scammer ? I think this was just an impossible game that is to promote various websites like bitcoinsforchristmas.com, bittleships, betforbtc etc. without any link with getting the 10 BTC price. Been scammed on here, AGAIN. No surprise. Well done scammer !

@bulanula why are you so quick to call scam. It was hard but not a scam. I'm looking forward to seeing the final clues too.

Le sigh.

You gotta be kidding. Not everything is a scam. I have never had any prior interaction with GoWest, but I do religiously follow his blog and I believe he provides a lot of value to the Bitcoin community. Here is the chain that led me to the coins:

I assume everyone found this reddit page, since it was publicly posted here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Money/comments/ly4ut/money_my_wife_thinks_that_shit_is_everywhere/

The comments at the end of it talk about "grave of fireflies, S<Y>D, cloudy mind". A google search led me to:
http://soundcloud.com/s-y-d/tracks

The comment on the first track, called "grave of the fireflies", has a user BTCHint saying "Flat money!". Yes, "flat", not "fiat". Searched on google for "flat money" bitcoin, and found this youtube video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9LaSrxtWfgc

Latest comment on that video says: "If you go to Arnold Schwarzenegger's email service, then youfoundthecoins."
Arnold Schwarzenegger's email service = mailinator.com (haha, that was a funny one!)
Check mail for the user "youfoundthecoins", it's a link to a bitcoinsforchristmas page, where I could type my address and get the bitcoins!
It looks like this mail has unfortunately been deleted now.

@bulanula why are you so quick to call scam. It was hard but not a scam. I'm looking forward to seeing the final clues too.

The drill is this : most people in this community lost huge amounts of $$$ during the bubble ( $100 by Christmas ring any bells ? ) and they are on - right now. I think 90% are in this position right now. To make up for the loss some of them have turned to scamming others in this community. This is not all a coincidence. mybitcoin, bitcoin 7 etc. moonco.in etc. I think you will agree that there are LOTS of scammers here.

This looks like a typical scam :

-mailinator address
-no email at that address just checked right now
-promotion of crap like bitcoinsforchristmass, bittleships, betforbtc which have no relation at all to the game
-newbie seems to win it and no credentials
-sketchy process not even explained
-easy opportunity for promoting above said websites without paying a dime

Well done ! You fooled us once again, scammers.

On another note, at least the scammers are getting more creative each and every day. Hopefully the 419ers follow suit and use BTC from now on too !

@bulanula you sound like a sore loser. No one lost any money so no scam. At worst you lost some time but you didn't have to participate if you didn't want to. it was just a bit of fun.

@bitfoo well done again. I didn't find that soundcloud clip. I did a similar google search but missed out the "cloudy mind" part so that's where I got stuck.

@GoWest thanks for the game. enjoyed it.

Well done! Boy was I barking up the wrong tree Smiley

You'll probably all get a laugh out of this. Bulanula's reddit account is suspiciously empty, so I figured he could be a sock puppet of GoWest. His first comment is about upholding the law, so I ended up at the bitcoin police wiki. There I saw that there was a pretty recent edit left by casascius. I figured he could probably be in on it too, if GoWest contacted him to set this up. It seemed like he had been collaborating with bitcoinsforchristmas, betforbtc, and bittleships, so why not casascius too?  His edit left a comment that said, "Somehow, I think Bitcoin Police is an embarrassment to the Bitcoin community, as it leads the reasonable observer to conclude that we're completely lost in fantasy land, and that bitcoins are its fantasy currency." Before that I had read GoWest's recent comment history on reddit too, and I remembered one comment in particular made today about using Bitcoin as an ingame currency. Specifically he says, "Can you imagine putting a raiding party together to go after a dragon with the equivalent of thousands of dollars attached to it?" I figured, he must surely know about Dragon's Tale, so why doesn't he mention it? He just drops the word dragon in there! Suspicious! And with casascius' comment about being 'lost in fantasy land, and that bitcoins are its fantasy currency.' It fits! He must be cooperating with the Dragon's tale people too! So unfortunately I spent the rest of the time on the dragon's tale website, trying to spot something, anything Tongue

Fun game GoWest! Smiley
