#bitcoinpuzzle still unsolved  Shocked ... I didnt think this scavenger hunt format would be this hard.

Maybe we need some more clues? Brute forcing it (all) is way too long.
You said that not the whole private key is scrambled, but that 33 is not enough of a clue...

However, I won't mind if the new clues will come only Monday  Grin

Thank you for creating this puzzle,
but I think that video is not clear in explaining to new crypto people how to solve the puzzle.
Some hints would be nice.

My imagination failed LOL

However I see you have put a lot of effort on those videos and giving good try to talk to the average joe. You have the tone and presentations skills (it seems). If you can educate at least one person and turn them to be a Bitcoiner then what more we could ask.

Good luck brother.

Don't know if this one is legit yet it do give out scrambled privatekey but it isn't bad to try out though for that balance.Good luck to us!
Yeah too hard to trust a newbie member but I think its worth to try just for fun and dont expect even if you win, if you get the reward its better.

Im gonna try this later  Smiley

My gut feeling is saying the guy really is trying to do this youTube business. If you have seen the videos then you will agree with me. He has put a lot of efforts and honestly speaking for newbies this kind of information will be very helpful.

So I vote for OP that it's legit.

Thanks for the vote :-) ... The puzzle is definitely winnable. I've tried talking to newbies direct. Brick wall ... So, Im trying a different approach. AND Im not a major tech head and I know most newbs now a days are not either. ( At least in my area ) ...  So, I didnt want to attempt something that has already been done ( puzzle wise for current coders ) ... I will have different puzzle formats, but the first vids might be boring to old timers here. They will be more directed to new users. Then hopefully better material for all.

The video comments have lots of good clues ( for those looking for clues ) ... Its pretty obvious, since its a compressed key, It starts with either L or K and there is no L in the key. That leads me saying ( "first" thing you need is a wallet )

Hope that helps anyone that may be stuck with the formatting.

That's actually the most confusing part. For anyone familiar with public/private key generation it's obvious that a compressed key has to start with K/L.
However, it has literally nothing to do with  "That leads me saying ( "first" thing you need is a wallet )". I mean there is no connection whatsoever. Even connecting it to the 2nd statement(about private key know-how) would make more sense.

One of the hardest parts of making a puzzle is to ensure that each clue doesn't have an infinite number of potential meanings.

If you read the other clues I given it not as hard as you are making it on yourself. NOT all the characters are scrambled. Key starts with K/L the 1st thing ... Theres the connection. Now your statement about the 2nd should appear a little brighter to you.

Im not sure what you mean by not having infinite number of meanings? If every clue was in your face obvious, the puzzle would be boring. AND for what?

by the way where are you guys getting the "scrambled" key from? i couldn't find it anywhere in the video.
The scrambled private key is in the description of the video:
Quote
Welcome to our debut #bitcoinpuzzle video. In this video I tell you a little bit of what to expect for future #puzzle videos. I hope you enjoy!

Scrambled private key - M5BfrbCq7yfvVDT2xrpfmZ4KWTNpbXJgdYHzWG8t19yMbUvsP9vK
This is exciting. It's a nice way to get people attracted to the topic and the channel by giving them puzzles. Since we know it's not a scam, it's a good game to play. I, however, am not very strong with puzzles, unfortunately. I am pretty sure I cannot solve this one, but I'll just leave everything that seemed potentially important here. Maybe it can help others Grin
  • Cherry
  • Green herbs (corn?)
  • Something is reflected in the glasses in the green light
  • Bitcoin.org
  • Some white dot/a fly near the end of the video.
  • And we know that not all of the characters are scrambled (from the comments under the video).
Good luck!

The idea about promote a youtube channel with bitcoin giveaways isn't bad at all, we love giveaways, sometimes i make some of them in the Spanish section. But i think for this one we don't have the right clues to solve it, we don-t even know what part of the privatekey is scrambled... if you could tell us the number of characters who aren't scrambled that would be a good hint.

But puzzles are this way, i will wait until OP gives more hints to try to solve it, with the actual information is impossible, other way someone should already found that privatekey.

Hey Im human, I make mistakes. I cleared up the editing error. The comment said nothing about a person with a sign with text ( embellish much) ... Ill get better as we go along. Just bear with me :-) ... The clues about which characters are scrambled are in the video.

If this video sucks in your opinion, feel free to offer some of that experience advise you got to help improve your chance of winning.

Thanks

What do they get out of this? Well, with a increase in the views and subscribers, the Youtube channel owner gets income and he could share that income with his friend. <partner in crime>  Roll Eyes

How do we validate that the winner is not a friend or family member? Well, it's basically impossible and that is the main problem I have with these puzzles.  Tongue
It is a realistic possibility that people are coming up with new ideas to make money with all these puzzle and rigged prizes but we have to give him the possibility of doubt until it is proven and there is nothing you can do about it, you can make a decision whether to participate in his game or not and people with time might spend their time chasing a puzzle.

@OP hopefully the winner will be an old user from this forum rather than a newbie account claiming the prize.

Seen the video too, im probably way overthinking it also. But i so far Figured K is the beginning of the compressed Private key, just watching over and over again to see what im missing  Huh Huh

Does the first clue start at the Cheeries?33
or start of video?

it may be one of the many bugs that participated in this video production like the one on the rear car window strolling for itself from left to middle enjoying the country side sun Cheesy

Yeah too hard to trust a newbie member but I think its worth to try just for fun and dont expect even if you win, if you get the reward its better.

Im gonna try this later  Smiley

So I vote for OP that it's legit.

Hmmm I think OP is very legit in giving this riddle. And there have been many people who have done this, like in Paris there is a puzzle of a wall painting, who can solve that puzzle then he get some bitcoin. I think OP is quite innovative in creating content and introducing bitcoin to outside world.

The problem I have with puzzles like this is the ease with which this can be cheated. Let's take an example, someone creates a Puzzle like this and then they share the Private key with a friend (accomplice) and after a few hours or days the friend post the result and they claim the prize. The friend then gives the money back to the creator of the puzzle and they rinse and repeat the process. <with fake accounts>

What do they get out of this? Well, with a increase in the views and subscribers, the Youtube channel owner gets income and he could share that income with his friend. <partner in crime>  Roll Eyes

How do we validate that the winner is not a friend or family member? Well, it's basically impossible and that is the main problem I have with these puzzles.  Tongue


The only solution here is for you to get your ass crackin and let everyone know its real :-)


If I really wanted to "take the prize away" Im not sharing with a buddy ;-)


BUT the goal is to get more youtube subscribers ( thats why youtube exists IMO ) ... Like I said the bigger the channel, the bigger the prizes. I hope to educate myself and new users with the channel as well. Lots of people in my area still believe bitcoin is fake money. AND unfortunately there are a lot of bad actors in crypto. BUT they exist everywhere in life. They just choose to use real money now :-)


Good luck!

Well, your answer does not really address the real issue here, because you are side stepping the problem. How do you guarantee that no friend or family member gets the solution and claims the prize?

A good sign that you are not trying to "scam" people are the time that it already took to solve this. A scammer would have allowed for a few days and then quickly instructed their "partner" to claim the prize, before a legitimate participant solved it. So that is a good indicator that this might be an exception to all the scams that are out there.  Wink

Let's see if someone genuine can solve this.  Grin

33 in a cherry is still the biggest mystery.
It can mean so many things
