It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I wouldn't call it any more time wasteful than the find the obscure google maps picture game someone else made. Just requires a different skill set.

If you solve it, please post rather than just taking the btc Smiley

I'll post another hint in 24 hours.

Meaning make a post announcing the private key and that you took the btc?  I thought the point of doing it this way was that the winner would have automatic access to the reward when he cracked it.

Yes, just post that you solved it, after you claim the BTC.

I'm halfway there, but it's too long O.o as if there's too many characters.

Interested...the time it will take me to figure this out is N+2 minutes, where N is the amount of minutes the guy who claimed the prize took to solve it.

I will estimate my time to sove at N+4 minutes since I am only 1/3 the way there right now.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

^This is the official "I tried to solve it, then I took an arrow to the knee" post trying to discourage others from trying.

Sadly, with the wallet recovery tools and a console wallet quirk you can get as many bitcoins as you want. I'm going to test it with 1 BTC.

If you feel Universe has trolled you exclusively, please donate to Emergency Butthurt Support Fund:

Well, the first layer should be pretty obvious to anyone with programming experience, I'll give more hints as the week progresses.

well first you turn that freaky thing into a form that looks like a private key. it is encoded rather than encrypted. so likely a given chunk of the key produces a given chunk of the freaky thing.

then you try to add it to a wallet using the recovery tools which do it for you and see if you get that address.

Actually, it's a post hoping for subtle hints that help me do the second half. Still no ideas though Tongue

Got it!

  • Split it into 51 7 bit integers
  • Decrease each integer by 1
  • Convert to ascii-string
