Yeah, its a Ycash thing, but Ywallet also works for ZEC so not too far off-topic.
I’ve got a game going to solve puzzles & recover a private key, first one to take the Ycash gets to keep it (sell it for ZEC, whatever) - there’s almost enough to buy a beer.
Cool, I remember when you posted q different puzzle and I ended up on some scooby doo videos looking for the clue, was convienced I had it! I thought my answer was better than yours
I’ll give a few days, and then I’ll start talking about the clues, couple wtf leads on the first. Second is very generalized, almost like a crossword riddle. And then it all seems to be wrapped behind some brute force, jeez
Ha! Yeah, it’s all a bit of fun - plus let’s folks play with Ywallet & maybe learn a bit about encryption.
This one is a bit harder, with luck it’ll still be going at the end of the year.
Someone else has been sending it coins, didn’t expect that to happen - other than the ‘scum-sucking-zecpages-spammer’ which is kinda inevitable.
The first clue is a little strange, the girlfriend of the husband of the wife who also discovered lunar ice with Kovack.
Kovack is capitalized, which might imply a name, as do the other clues of people, and this sort of points to a person involved in a securities scandal from a few years back, whos name also contains ‘Moon’. The term ‘ice’ may be a metaphor.
However, the word Kovacks also applies to a company that produces machines specifically for boring into ice so maybe its not a metaphor
Its not supposed to be easy
When there are a few more players I’ll post another clue.
Using the number of YouTube subscribers to track that - when it gets to 100 I’ll do it, currently 41.
The clues have been out in the wallet & on YouTube for a while, posting them here :-
She was the girlfriend of the husband of the woman who also discovered lunar ice with Kovac.
A date that changes, depending on who was asked.
A location that’s really elsewhere, named by a Chilean First Lieutenant.
Here are the AES encrypted pieces of the Private Key :-
Here is the Viewing Key, scan it with Ywallet to see if the Ycash is still there :-
Think I got a good lead on clue 3 (^-^*)
Guess you brute forced that one, there are only so many dates & date formats to work through
I havent broken anything yet!
I should probably release another clue soon.
The only person involved in creating this puzzle was me
Posts from anyone else claiming to have clues etc are spam
For those that need it, here’s a link to an online AES encrypt/decrypt tool :-
A free online tool for AES encryption and decryption. It is an aes calculator that performs aes encryption and decryption of image, text and .txt file in ECB and CBC mode with 128, 192,256 bit. The output can be base64 or Hex encoded.
