A while back I posted a pilot and episode 1 of a bitcoin puzzle game. Here is the 2nd episode:

http://bitscan.com/articles/the-hidden-keys-game-the-mystery-deepens

You can find out more information about the previous episodes (which might be useful) on that page.

It would be good to keep this thread for feedback and updates, though if you win it you might want to limit what you give away, since it may become important again in the future...

Enjoy!

EDIT:
Hint #1:
Although the email mentions other books, the weird style convinces me that any hidden message is in the text he sent me itself. There are inconsistencies I have spotted, but I'm still not sure where to start...

Going to have to wait for a hint.

But I did notice that The Bible Code was first published in 1997/1998 (wikipedia/amazon discrepancy). The original journal paper which inspired the book, was published in 1994.

Interesting...
I'll let people know when hints are published, though the time difference means you should check the site if you want to be sure to get them quickly.
Like the others, this isn't a puzzle I expect people to solve without hints, but I've already seen some thoughts along the right lines.
By the way, last time, a password cracker really gave some people an edge for filling in the gaps. This time, I'm hoping that custom software wouldn't provide much of an advantage.

After a little research into the arcane subject of Equidistant Letter Sequences, it suggests that you should ignore spaces and punctuation – Hebrew manuscripts didn’t have either of these.
Did they have numbers?

Letters were used as numbers. In this case, I'd keep all 'meaningful' characters  Wink
