Winnings Paid to Date: 6.1 BTC                     Bitcoin100 Donations to Date: 8 BTC (pending)

Play the richest Bitcoin related contest currently running on BitcoinTalk. This contest is guaranteed to pay out between no less than 730 BTC (in donations to Bitcoin100) and 7,300+ >10,000 BTC to individual winners, all over the course of the next 3565+ days.

Play WTHAI? (Where the Heck am I?) and win 10 BTC. Win double--20 BTC--if the correct answer is provided within the first hour of the posted image's time stamp. I'll even double your winnings if you correctly answer two locations in a row. Watch for a new image daily.

The rules are simple: (and the contest becomes easier as time passes)

  • 1. Guess the locations of the Google Map Images. (could me anywhere in the world) A new image posted every day.
  • 2. Post your answers on this thread. One guess per image, per post is allowed.
  • 3. The first person who answers correctly with the exact location of any of the daily contests wins 10 BTC, if answered within the first 24 hours of that image's first appearance.
  • 4. If after 24 hours there is no correct answer, the prize will be halved to 5 BTC for the next 24 hours, and so on, downward toward 1 Satoshi.
  • 5. If after 30 days there is no winner, the answer will be revealed and I will donate 1 BTC to Bitcoin100.
  • 6. 24 hours will be calculated via the time stamp of the posting of the image on this forum.
  • 7. To win the prize, the correct answer must include an image, one pulled back revealing that there's a match with a 100% degree of certainty.
  • 8. I reserve the right to cancel this contest if I see or smell robot droppings.
  • 9. Feel free to guess. If I respond in the affirmative for any of the guesses, that particular prize amount, for that particular image, will be extended for 1 day. 1 extension per day, per image, per prize amount.
  • 10. One person can win multiple times.
  • 11. If I don't comment on your guesses within a reasonable time period or before my very next post after your guesses, safely assume they are incorrect.
  • 12. Once somebody guesses correctly, I will also donate 2 BTC to Bitcoin100 along with paying them their winnings.
  • 13. The guessing of hemispheres and continents is allowed, but will not be commented on in the negative or affirmative, unless I choose to do such.

Feel free to ask any contest related questions. The rules may be modified in the future, but never changed to avoid any payouts. I would rather payout, then engage in conflict.

All images are oriented as if you were reading any map--top is north. No images have been altered in any way. Just screenshot, cropped, then posted on Flickr.

Nebraska - U.S.

You are so close! You're on the right planet. Thank you for playing, Sannyasi. Remember, you're only allowed 100 guesses within a 24 hour period, so guess wisely.

EDIT: The following has been placed here for prosperity, thus freeing up space in the OP:

It is a small town in north UK, but I don't want to do a log grep search. So others can use it as a hint.

Are you telling me that the location could be found via a log grep search, even though it's a cropped screenshot, put into another file, renamed, all prior to posting it on Flickr?

I can see how that could be used to find the color of RandyFolds underwear, but not this image. Prove me wrong!

No, I am telling you I have a somewhat eidetic memory and recall this coming up on one of the channels, I believe -otc or #bitcoin proper .  I obviously don't have a perfect eidetic memory tho...

Although, I seem to recall the name of the town starting with a "C". I am also telling you that I don't want 10 btc bad enough to go find out. So I'll just throw it out there for others to find. Smiley


Oh, OR, I could be completely wrong... Like I said, it was a guess. I usually guess pretty good tho...

BTW: Do you sell the wallets? It's kind of cool.


And yea, what's up with that avatar Sad  Randy's I mean.

I just sent you a PM in regards to the wallet question. For everybody else, I sell the leather wallets that my famous brother-in-law hand-tools.

Pay the RF underwear comment no mind. (I may have made that up)

I guess it would be fair to say that your guess is totally incorrect. It's nothing related to anything ever posted on this forum before, and doubt pretty much it's ever been referenced in any other photo before either. I simply picked a spot and zoomed it, visualizing what it would look liked cropped, then went from there.

On the surface, this looks like a tough game, until the interaction starts. I wanted the prize to be high enough to warrant activity, and not too low to have the opposite effect. I even tossed in the Bitcoin100 donation aspect for good measure. Therefore, if I did this every day, for 365 days, and nobody ever guessed correctly, 365 BTC would be donated to Bitcoin100. Genius, eh?

Cool,

I sent you 1 BTC for the BitCoin 100.

Not a bad idea. I generally try to support the BitCoin community.

I'm sad I missed the guess. But hey, if I was never wrong, I would be relaxing somewhere. Smiley

I'll get with you after the holidays on the wallet. Thnx.

Thank you kindly, BTC_Bear for the supporting Bitcoin100. The list in the OP on that thread will be updated. Have a great Holiday, and look forward to hearing from you in regards to the leather wallet.

Thank you kindly for your guesses, RaggedMonk. Now I'll need to update the rules. Only one guess per post.

BTW, your first 49 guesses are incorrect. If you happen to have one of those blue round things laying around the house, give it a 180 degree spin, then guess again.

I like the idea, but youve taken it a bit OTT. This could be my backyard and I might not recognize it.

TY, P4man. I will not being showing anybody's backyard, although that was not your concern. It gets easier once the clues are presented in the form of answering questions, like...

Somewhere in Cornwall, UK? (The most southwest county of England)

Nope!

See how much I have narrowed down the possibilities with that answer?

WTHAI 2 will be available later today. Watch for it.

I'm guessing its somewhere in Nebraska,US in the city of Brunswick maybe.(damn the 1 guess per post policy as I had 7 guesses in this state)

Based on this:
"Quote from: Sannyasi on Today at 01:11:01 AM
Nebraska - U.S.

You are so close! You're on the right planet. Thank you for playing, Sannyasi. Remember, you're only allowed 100 guesses within a 24 hour period, so guess wisely."

I don't know how to quote other posts as I didn't press quote this time.

Those who do not know how to operate the quote option are only allowed 95 guesses per day. The following should answer your other 6 guesses:
