In case anyone wanted to see how to solve it, I have written a python script using the solution posted here that decodes the flames.

https://github.com/ynohtna92/1FLAMEN6

You can test it here by copying and pasting the code into the online shell https://www.python.org/shell/


Hi,

How did you interpret the width channel?
See post #1410 for my problem (also quoted below).

The flame width mentioned by smracer in previous post is one of the 4 flames I had trouble with.

In fact, now that I see the output of your code, I also had the very first flame wrong, for me it is narrow.

Hello,

I just read the solution article and even with it I had troubles finding the private key. Either there are mistakes in the flame width channel or I did not understand which part of the flame is supposed to be narrow or wide.

I bruteforced the message I found with random permutations until it contained a valid WIF private key. I had 4 bits which did not match in the flame width channel. Here are the 4 flames to which they correspond.

https://i.imgur.com/QH1aSpq.jpg

I've written next to them what they are supposed to be, but I had the opposite value in my dataset. Can someone please explain why these flames are supposed to be narrow/wide? Especially why the two top ones are supposed to be narrow? Isn't it the width of the inner color which matters?

EDIT: the wrong flames were circled in the first posted image

Hi,

See post #1410 for my problem.
The flame width mentioned by smracer is one of the 4 flames I had trouble with.
In fact now that I see the output of your code, I also had the very first flame wrong, for me it is narrow.

I was counting the size of the inner flame 0 for skinny and 1 for fat.  I did have the same problem with flame #102.  I counted it as fat and it's needs to be skinny.

I had listed the other 2 correctly I believe.  Here are the data streams I posted before.
Here is the data I have from the flames.  The order is inner top/inner right/inner bottom/inner left/outer left/outer bottom/outer right/outer top.

Outer Color Yellow - 0  Outer Color Orange - 1   Inner Color Purple - 0  Inner Color Green - 1  Inner Color Skinny - 0 Inner Color Fat - 1 Short Flame - 0 Tall Flame- 1

Yeah the width is the inside flame (purple or green part). Sometimes it is hard to tell what is suppose to be so I just keep running the script trying different combinations till I got a valid private key address on the flames that looked in between.

Thanks, so I guess we agree there are at least two mistakes in the width channel.
The two near the central horizontal line on this picture.

I was just surprised that everybody seemed to find back the correct message by reading the solution article but I had to bruteforce like crazy to find which bits to flip.

Ouch, alphabetcanary provided the order, smracer provided the near-perfect data set https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766000.msg28003100#msg28003100, and some others provided the method... these guys deserve some of the prize at least.

Given that, wouldn't the puzzle been impossible to solve unless by trial and error or a lucky guess?

@the artist: Perhaps consider selling limited addition giclée reproductions, numbered and signed. I'll admit that the piece is 634u71ful, especially when eloquently flamed framed.

May I also suggest that if following through with the quality reproduction idea, split some of the profits with those mentioned above. Myself, I desire nothing. FWIW, my posts are not meant as trolling. I'm a white hat dude in this space, albeit my donkey, Hank, thinks he's a horse and ain't afraid to try to prove it each and every time we come across a mare in heat on the trail. "Hank, calm down. That ain't a mare." <note to self: at the end of the trail, Google to see if horses can be transgender>

Those few errors are not important from this perspective, because once you get the string with few error characters:
Code:
B34u7y, truth, andrarity5K8HiK2TP874KWF8Vhxov7tbgbttniB2gxqxP8KMU9TwK8odA18
its' obvious that you are on the right track and have to look up for questionable bits.

In the hindsight, we new that the bitstreams are correlated from their distribution, but if I remember correctly vast majority of solvers decoded them separately for some reason. I know what the reason was in my case: I believed there is no skinny/fat bitstream. Enough to fail.

  • 1FLAMEN6 - means nothing
  • Phoenix, dove, knight, queen - nothing
  • Chess board - nothing
  • Leaves - NOTHING!
  • Weird flames - nothing
  • Mirrored bits - nothing
  • Tweets from coinartist - nothing
  • Spirals - mostly nothing (small indication of order)
  • Poem by coinartist - nothing
  • Blue squares - nothing
  • Flames on chess board - nothing
  • Phoenix spikes - nothing
  • Dove tail - nothing
  • Weird queen bottom - nothing
  • Melting queen - nothing

After i read the final solution.. i was shocked.. Was that really that easy?

I can't believe how i went wrong.. I was more than sure that the key is to find a right chess game which was visualized by the image.

I found game between Henry Edward Bird vs Joseph Henry Blackburne from 1886

And all suggested that it is it!

  • The first player was called Bird
  • The second player was called Blackburne
  • The game was started with Bird Opening
  • The game is quite famous and it has a dedicated name "Bird without a Nest" - there is no nest in the picture
  • The game has 17 moves - number of leaves in the picture
  • The key move in the game was to capture White Bishop with the Black Knight - the same as in the picture
  • The above capture was taken on F2 squere - exactly as in the picture
  • The final move in the game includes chess motive called Phoenix Attack
  • Leaves suggested knight moves (L shape)

And please tell me, that it is nothing about this game Smiley ...

If i could improve the puzzle, i would encrypt information about how to assign bits value e.g. outer collor yellow = 0, skinny = 0, somewhere in the image, so that this solution wasn't only about a pure luck and juggling with countless permutation.

Nevertheless, congratulation to the winner.

Anyone can print the image in any manner they wish. I've also said that if people wish to sell the image they may do so. I don't need percentage of sales. People can do this already with or without my permission because I released the high resolution tiff. Someone on twitter has already been selling prints -> https://twitter.com/coin_javis

There is still one mystery which is bigger than the puzzle itself and no one solved it!
What is the relation between coin-artist and the white-x-rabbit? do they know each other?
why they went in a bad discussion and what coin-artist did? why she is angry from white-rabbit?
any why the rabbit said: "You know what you did. But one day you will fall over your leg" ?!!

That remains a big mystery here!


She knows what she did.

And it's not about SCAM.

The main thing is that she knows. You do not know what's going on and you want to receive information. She has behaved badly.

Moderators can confirm the specifications of my logins and distinguish them from these other accounts, I do not have a multi-account

I understand that you do not know what's going on. But she knows what she did.

But I know it, it's not my fault that someone asks questions. You know what you did. You really can not guess who I am?

You know what you did. But one day you will fall over your leg.


I think that one possibility for what happened between them, is that the white-x-rabbit is one of the original author of this puzzle, he was the first one to work with coin-artist to make this puzzle (there are 3 developers mentioned in coin-artist original post on twitter.

in his first post he put his address and asked us to donate in order for him to make puzzles in the future, this was a hint that he is in the business of making puzzles (developer, programmer...)

that author (white rabbit) decided to use both the flames and many elements in the image as part of the solution (including steganography), if you read his few posts you can get an idea
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1442276;sa=showPosts

it was clear that some kind of steganography was embedded there in the first place.
see for example this clue posted by the rabbit about (EA OEM 011)

Look now at my selection (red color)

(Marked very quickly)

But it's a curiosity. You managed to hit, even though the interpetation, think again

https://i.imgur.com/yR0ZXL7.jpg

it was clear that (big blue colored E) was supposed to be part of the solution as steganography.
and the yari cogi board and those pieces (queen+knight) was suggested by the rabbit as part of the solution besides many other symbols embedded in the image (17 leaves, The rabbit if you rotate the image, 1000 on the dove's tail, 11110 on the phoenix head, the mirrors, the blue tiles, 4 blocks in the corner) those were the rabbit ideas when he was working on the puzzle with coin-artist.
if you read his posts you can see his ideas for the puzzle.

But for a reason that we don't know they separated and coin-artist decided to complete that puzzle with another developer, and this way they decided to encode the key only in the flames!!
What a stupid idea!! only the flames and luck were needed to solve it and they called it a legend of satoshi nakamoto!! shame on you guys!

but i think they forced to do that because if they use all the image as part of the solution, then, in this case it would be easy for the rabbit to solve it.

so that rabbit decided to revenge in another way by trolling us here in this forum by his clues that were supposed to be as part of the solution!

and i think coin-artist read his posts and watched his trolling activity in the forum but didn't respond or warn us about him!, he also mentioned that he knows the authors and still no response from coin-artist!

both white rabbit and The silent coin-artist trolled the solvers in this puzzle, they both hold part of the responsibilty of what happened.

To the white-x-rabbit: please tell us the truth, what happened? what she did? why you were trolling us? is that was a revenge?

But I know it, it's not my fault that someone asks questions. You know what you did. You really can not guess who I am?

You know what you did. But one day you will fall over your leg.


I think that one possibility for what happened between them, is that the white-x-rabbit is one of the original author of this puzzle, he was the first one to work with coin-artist to make this puzzle (there are 3 developers mentioned in coin-artist original post on twitter.

in his first post he put his address and asked us to donate in order for him to make puzzles in the future, this was a hint that he is in the business of making puzzles (developer, programmer...)

that author (white rabbit) decided to use both the flames and many elements in the image as part of the solution (including steganography), if you read his few posts you can get an idea
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1442276;sa=showPosts

it was clear that some kind of steganography was embedded there in the first place.
see for example this clue posted by the rabbit about (EA OEM 011)

Look now at my selection (red color)

(Marked very quickly)

But it's a curiosity. You managed to hit, even though the interpetation, think again

https://i.imgur.com/yR0ZXL7.jpg

it was clear that (big blue colored E) was supposed to be part of the solution as steganography.
and the yari cogi board and those pieces (queen+knight) was suggested by the rabbit as part of the solution besides many other symbols embedded in the image (17 leaves, The rabbit if you rotate the image, 1000 on the dove's tail, 11110 on the phoenix head, the mirrors, the blue tiles, 4 blocks in the corner) those were the rabbit ideas when he was working on the puzzle with coin-artist.
if you read his posts you can see his ideas for the puzzle.

But for a reason that we don't know they separated and coin-artist decided to complete that puzzle with another developer, and this way they decided to encode the key only in the flames!!
What a stupid idea!! only the flames and luck were needed to solve it and they called it a legend of satoshi nakamoto!! shame on you guys!

but i think they forced to do that because if they use all the image as part of the solution, then, in this case it would be easy for the rabbit to solve it.

so that rabbit decided to revenge in another way by trolling us here in this forum by his clues that were supposed to be as part of the solution!

and i think coin-artist read his posts and watched his trolling activity in the forum but didn't respond or warn us about him, he also that he knows the authors and still no response from coin-artist!

both white rabbit and The silent coin-artist trolled the solvers in this puzzle, they both hold part of the responsibilty of what happened.

To the white-x-rabbit: please tell us the truth, what happened? what she did? why you were trolling us? is that was a revenge?

  • 1FLAMEN6 - means nothing
  • Phoenix, dove, knight, queen - nothing
  • Chess board - nothing
  • Leaves - NOTHING!
  • Weird flames - nothing
  • Mirrored bits - nothing
  • Tweets from coinartist - nothing
  • Spirals - mostly nothing (small indication of order)
  • Poem by coinartist - nothing
  • Blue squares - nothing
  • Flames on chess board - nothing
  • Phoenix spikes - nothing
  • Dove tail - nothing
  • Weird queen bottom - nothing
  • Melting queen - nothing

After i read the final solution.. i was shocked.. Was that really that easy?

I can't believe how i went wrong.. I was more than sure that the key is to find a right chess game which was visualized by the image.

I found game between Henry Edward Bird vs Joseph Henry Blackburne from 1886

And all suggested that it is it!

  • The first player was called Bird
  • The second player was called Blackburne
  • The game was started with Bird Opening
  • The game is quite famous and it has a dedicated name "Bird without a Nest" - there is no nest in the picture
  • The game has 17 moves - number of leaves in the picture
  • The key move in the game was to capture White Bishop with the Black Knight - the same as in the picture
  • The above capture was taken on F2 squere - exactly as in the picture
  • The final move in the game includes chess motive called Phoenix Attack
  • Leaves suggested knight moves (L shape)

And please tell me, that it is nothing about this game Smiley ...

If i could improve the puzzle, i would encrypt information about how to assign bits value e.g. outer collor yellow = 0, skinny = 0, somewhere in the image, so that this solution wasn't only about a pure luck and juggling with countless permutation.

Nevertheless, congratulation to the winner.

Please read my post above, this was a big mystery in this troll.

STAHP.

after that all you say "STOP"?! you didn't reply, you are hiding the truth with that rubbit!
It is better for you to tell hurtful truths than to hide them.
After posting that solution, it was clear that this puzzle was a big Troll and a big Disapointment for all.
we want to know the TRUTH.
is Speaking Truth that Hurts?!

Hi ytcoinartist, I'm from the Pineapple Fund. I can't PM you, so I'm writing publicly. Hope you come across this!

Hello ytcoinartist!

I'm Pine from the Pineapple Fund, the largest cryptocurrency philanthropy project donating ~5000 BTC. The recent media articles reminded me of your puzzle that I came across years ago, and I'm curious if you'd be interested in a collaboration!

I'm sorry to see all the negativity and FUD on bitcointalk in regards to the puzzle, by the way.

For the remaining 100 BTC of the Pineapple Fund, I would like to leave it up to the community to choose which registered charities receive it. I was thinking of making a reddit post, but that is prone to being gamed.

A puzzle artwork could be created where a number of tokens are hidden in the image. 50 BTC of the last 100 BTC could be dedicated to the puzzle, and each token could say allow you to choose where 10 BTC goes. (It'll have to be a registered charity).

Alternatively, there could just be X different private keys of 1 BTC hidden inside, and who can solve the puzzles would be able to have a reward for themselves. It'd be an answer to all the people sending begging emails to the Pineapple Fund.

Let me know if you are interested in working on a collaboration! My email is contact@pineapplefund.org

Again this has something to do with the 1886 Chess game that ended in 17 moves played by bird.  (17 leaves on the vine)


The game is called "Bird without a nest".

I know!  I posted this back in 2015.  I thought for sure I was looking for an encrypted key and "bird without a nest" was the password.

but seems that telling the Truth hurt.
Don't forget that the word "Truth" is included in the key.
Be Truthful to those solvers and say the Truth.

The poem helped solvers know when they found the correct string. The poem was chosen because of the Phoenix and the dove, and what the poem was about. I also love Shakespeare and referenced him previously on the trail. This specific poem has amazing lore around it and is largely considered one of the most mysterious poems of all time. It's part of a book of poems that in its entirety are a mystery, some of the authors are a mystery. There is much to explore. The phoenix was a symbol for personal reasons. The queen being tied to the phoenix because Elizabeth is strongly considered the phoenix in these texts. The knight to represent the hints that the texts were about the love story between Elizabeth and Second Earl of Essex, Robert Devereux. The art was intended to direct readers to the text, but it was not necessary for the solution. In the past numerous complaints have been made about using too ambiguous of references. So for this piece I tried to be as straight forward as possible. The greek keys, mirror and rotate CCW, as is needed to read the flames properly. The flames hold all the "code" and this was intended to be clear. The key was the key. This was also intended to be clear. The flames are the code and they are consuming the subjects of the story. This is an art piece as much as it is a puzzle. It was an art piece created as reflection of my life at the time and subjects that inspired me. I'm sorry if you are disappointed that I did not manage to create some labyrinth of an internet hunt with this final piece. But that was never my intention in the first place. This piece was meant to be direct, straightforward, and the end of a chapter that I wanted to close - that being the legend of satoshi nakamoto.

By all means, create your own challenges and put my puzzles to shame. But asking for donations to create puzzles is wrong and dishonest. You make work and prove talent. That is the only way.

And no, white rabbit is a fraud and also I believe the same account as you, Feedo. This is not appreciated. You obviously would like to make a puzzle that others care about. Then do it. If you can't afford to fund your own puzzle then just make one that's for fun.

I was counting the size of the inner flame 0 for skinny and 1 for fat.  I did have the same problem with flame #102.  I counted it as fat and it's needs to be skinny.

I had listed the other 2 correctly I believe.

Thanks, so I guess we agree there are at least two mistakes in the width channel.
The two near the central horizontal line on this picture.

I was just surprised that everybody seemed to find back the correct message by reading the solution article but I had to bruteforce like crazy to find which bits to flip.

Given that, wouldn't the puzzle been impossible to solve unless by trial and error or a lucky guess?

@the artist: Perhaps consider selling limited addition giclée reproductions, numbered and signed. I'll admit that the piece is 634u71ful, especially when eloquently flamed framed.

Ouch, alphabetcanary provided the order, smracer provided the near-perfect data set https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766000.msg28003100#msg28003100, and some others provided the method... these guys deserve some of the prize at least.

May I also suggest that if following through with the quality reproduction idea, split some of the profits with those mentioned above. Myself, I desire nothing. FWIW, my posts are not meant as trolling. I'm a white hat dude in this space, albeit my donkey, Hank, thinks he's a horse and ain't afraid to try to prove it each and every time we come across a mare in heat on the trail. "Hank, calm down. That ain't a mare." <note to self: at the end of the trail, Google to see if horses can be transgender>

Anyone can print the image in any manner they wish. I've also said that if people wish to sell the image they may do so. I don't need percentage of sales. People can do this already with or without my permission because I released the high resolution tiff. Someone on twitter has already been selling prints -> https://twitter.com/coin_javis

 Smiley  I think shorena and rock_collector have covered most everything there is to cover. Perhaps worth noting:

3,4,7,9,12,16,30,37,43,48,51,55,59,65: is not a well-known integer sequence at http://oeis.org
I also checked a couple variants in case our sequence identification was incorrect/flawed.

On the other hand, 3,4,7 happen to be near the start of the Lucas sequence (basically Fibbonacci but starting with 2,1):
2,1,3,4,7,11,18,29,47,....

"Take a W@@@lk with me." and "1follow me" are the content added to the Alice in Wonderland quote. My suspicion is that both clues point to twitter, although "walk with me" could also imply walking along some kind of numerical sequence.

I won't be in on this too much for at least the next few days due to moving. I'm curious to see how things emerge.Smiley
