If the morse/the_____isthekeyfile is apart of the solution I'm going to be slightly pissed unless there's a reasonable explanation on how to get to that point besides brute forcing.

no it is not, don't frustrate yourself Wink (I may look really stupid if it is)

Let's just wait for the solution guys Smiley I wanted to say that if somebody wants to give it a quick try, there is still the BTG for the taking, but I verified that there is none. It had been emptied midnight sharp.

Congratulations to the winner!

Are you one of the puzzle authors?

Are you one of the puzzle authors?

what makes you think I may be one? would I say "I will look really stupid if it is" if I were the author? I just think it was a coincidence, as does RealOnTheMF, and that's it.

anyway, we'll shortly know this way or the other.

i tried to google aur files mid-Jan but I was not successful, anyway, as I said many times, I was doubtful to that idea.

You should have come forward with that autorealm idea when I posted that https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766000.msg28336592#msg28336592 Cheesy
Now it is definitely too late for any new ideas Cheesy and I hope to hear from the winner soon! If there was a map - we'll know it.

Also, I don't know if she copied this or not but it fits pretty well when overlaid.

I had the idea that either the way the watch was pointing, or the time itself (12:25 or 12:26) was a clue.

Note: I wasn't the one to solve this, but I did make significant progress.

I posted around Christmas and because I was unwilling to give away to much information, no one believed that I had made progress on the puzzle. I was actually ridiculed and called schizophrenic, but I was telling the truth. I was legitimately trying to help others make progress. The key was to think like an artist.

Anyway, since there's no information yet about how it was solved, I wrote a blog post about my own progress.  Congratulations to the winner.

Here's the post:

https://yetzirah-games.squarespace.com/blog/2018/2/2/the-legend-of-satoshi-nakamoto-part-overview-long

I think the puzzle is worth exploring even without the financial incentive. It's brilliant, and fun to explore. Maybe my post will help some of you get started.

I apologize, because particularly I may have been guilty of mistreating you. Even if you don't refer to my post, I want to apologize anyway. Take care man, and I will gladly read your blog entry.

EDIT: I did read it, and the amount and momentum of your work is surely impressive. I am not sure I would go the same way, but people are different and that is the beauty of a world we have

I gonna tell you guys and gals REAL hints!

it's called 1FLAMEN6 because... Wait for it...  
16 different flames!!!  

And I can give out two more secret hints that no one have seen yet but I don't know if the first one is important or not. Let's see who can solve this

The "W hite R abbit" is in the red ribbons

The Phenix and the turtle has "1658" characters

Trinitas got 10% from the prize for these hints so I'm guessing reducing the input to 16 flame types helped

As much as I have to say that I do not think your theory is correct, I must admire it. I'm having trouble deciphering if it has been done with a hint of sarcasm or if you're genuinely serious. Either way, Well done.  Grin  Grin

There's no sarcasm in my post, I assure you. All of the images are real, and this isn't a hoax. The whole endeavor could very well be a red herring for a much more straightforward solution, but there were real images in there, and they told a story.

I hope we find out what the final answer is soon, though. I'm steeling myself to find out that one of my images was close and that I turned down another path too soon. I really hope not, but I'm happy with what I did.

Currently speaking with the person who solved it, and their solution was pretty genius. The write-up will be published early next week.

Template thinking for 2.5 years.

Your attention has been effectively reversed by the flame.

Reverse enough that you could not see the big white rabbit in the picture.

The end of 2017 - you still count the flames.


It's a wonderland and nothing is as it seems.

WR is troll. Because he does not count flames.


Is it so difficult to see something that is not obvious, think in a non-figurative way, do not look at the solutions of other puzzles?





@feedo

Im comments only because you follow the rabbit. Do not Look me in the eye, it's hostile. Have you noticed that for a rabbit I have short ears but my left hand is raised up?

Do you see her now?

It looks from a different perspective like a pigeon and a dove always carries information

Congratulations @RealOnTheMF - he should know for what but this is not the whole picture, do you feel that you miss something?


Do you still count the flame? They carry information to look at the image where the details matter.

You still do not follow me, you do not trust the rabbit, still many of you can not see me in the picture.

Why?

In your world it is hard to understand that nothing is the same?

Because in the picture it is not an ordinary world.

WONDERLAND

To the white_x_rabbit Thank you for everey single post you shared with us, you've clearly given a valuable clues and without those clues nobody can solve this troll,

why they previously have solved more complicated puzzles in few weeks and yet can't solve this troll for more than 3 years?!
it's clear that your clues made a difference, but i still believe that this was a big scam, and there is a big question about that (kreeoz) and the date he was supposed to share his video on 1st FEB,
IS THIS A COINCIDENCE?!.. i don't think so!

So I will still try to solve it alone for all this month and if I can't, the 1st day of february I will upload a video with the first two or three steps I made and I will post the link here for you all.

i don't know you or who you are (you said one time that you know one of the author and that post deleted), and i don't know what coin-artist did for you, it's not my business anyway, but i am sure you are an honest legit person.

someone here called me a loser, in fact i wasn't here to really compete for the prize because simply i don't have the experience in these kind of puzzles and all that stuff (ciphers, cryptography, codes..etc) and don't have the time to invest in those stuff, i've been here only for few weeks since i know about the puzzle in prime dice forum, it was just my curosity to discover something new.
i feel sorry for all those who invested too much time and effort and were not successful.

i pesonally don't know coin-artist and don't have anything against her to say -other than this puzzle being a big scam-, she may be a great person, a great mom, a great wife, and a great artist....

Again, thank you white_x_rabbit.

Use this perl script and use each Morse stream one at a time.  This one uses a dictionary attack.

https://pastebin.com/bxWXnX0s

You get lots of words.  Nothing really jumps out at me though.  

Yes I agree that seventeen is just a coincidence.  We need a string of words that make sense for it to be valid.

@smracer, was it you who received the 10%? From the chat log posted on motherboard here: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/evmgvk/mystery-satoshi-nakamoto-solved-1flamen6

Yes! I made a post on bitcointalk about a hint no one had seen before and then 20min later the price was gone... Maybe it was me who said to much
...
Btw I got 10% from flamen Smiley

That's the only post I can see that was 20 mins before the transfer.

Nope, that wasn't me.  The post was about WR being in morse code in the ribbons.  The 16 flame variation we already knew.

I am very interested in the solution though.  I really would like to know if I was right about the chess game "Bird without a nest" and the BIP38 encrypted key.

We shall soon see!

the address was emptied 15.09 UTC, so the bitcointalk hint mentioned in the motherboard article must have been posted at ~14.50 UTC, but there is no such post in that proximity (chubbychew posted AFTER the address had been emptied). Well we shall soon see

I noticed them too Cheesy when I checked the exact emptying time.
I wonder what is it from? Anyway, they are worth 10USD now so nothing particularly rewarding.

I wanted to ask, did you have a bot or whatever observing that address? Your post that it was emptied was very well timed too Smiley

Yes, I'm very confused by that convo. If it wasn't smracer, where is the "hint"? Also, the text "maybe it was me who said to much", does that mean this was someone who knew the solution and was trying to nudge us along the right path? Would love to go back and read those posts.

Just a guess --

If you follow the transaction trail back, those coins came from an address that withdrew the coins in the first place. I wonder if this is just the solver demonstrating to someone (the MB writer?) that he has control of the address.

It went:
