BitcoinTalk’s User WoodCollector Hid 5,000 Btc and Here’s the Key to Find It

Some WoodCollector claims to have hidden 5,000 BTC and wants BitcoinTalk users to find it. Can it be real?

  • Coin #1 named 'Mazuma.' Dare to dive into the raging markets of BTC. Going from bull to bear then back to bull all in only 1 day. 'Mazuma' (Hebrew slang for money) represents all that Bitcoin is in today's market climates, and is the first of only 10 physical BTCitcoins Bitcointalk user under the name Wood Collector  has created for the 2015 calender year.

  • Coin #3 named 'Königlich'. Inspired by early era German coinage, 'königlich' represents all things royal, financial, and commanding. Carved from a gorgeous specimen of 'First' grade Iroko then accented with the slow burning of a torch, königlich is attention grabbing in any setting.

  • Coin #4 named 'Meta'. Fall into the the Metaphysical world of Bitcoin and let your imagination run wild for hours. 'Meta' encompasses over a dozen hidden characters and symbols including an Eagle, The Blockchain, a Bitcoin, The Bitcoin Network, and many more. 'Meta' is a commanding 11" round and 1.8" thick and is carved with a 10BTC Denomination, encased in a very high gloss liquid glass finish with its vibrant red color Meta will be the center of attention in any room. Red African Padauk when freshly worked is a brilliant redish brown color, as time passes as the piece is exposed to light and air it will continue to turn darker until it reaches an eye popping blood red color with dark black grain.

  • Coin #5 named 'Resolute'. This coin is all about Deliveryman. The heart of a lion, the drive of a stampede of bulls, with a touch of Moroccan elegance in his life represented by the hand of fatima.

  • Coin #6 named 'Morning Calm'. The coin is an artistic representation of peace and harmony in bitcoin culture. When it started WoodCollector was given a symbol, and asked to build a coin around it. Almost instantly he was taken back to his memories of 'The Garden of Morning Calm.' One of the most peaceful and tranquil places he has ever known on the planet. With patterned carvings of abstract Hibiscus and vine, "Morning Calm" instills a sense of harmony within a room. An overwhelming sense of calm can be felt when standing it its presence and looking deep into the detail of the garden carved into this coin.

  • Coin #7 named 'Kohaku'. Too little is known about this coin. Kohaku is the Japanese word for amber, and a Japanese name. The coin wasn't for sale and it was commissioned and purchased by another BitcoinTalk user named 'IronMarvel'. Photo and caption by  WoodCollector/BitcoinTalkCoin #7 named 'Kohaku'.

  • Coin #8 named 'Black Swan'. The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight. The theory was developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. This piece was created to symbolize Bitcoins position as a sort of black swan event. "Black Swan" is carved into a gorgeous specimen of Quartersawn Zebrawood and accented with onyx black text and designs, then finished in crytstal coat. (the crystal coat is what gives it the glittery like finish that reflects like diamonds around the raised surface areas.) Photo and caption by  WoodCollector/BitcoinTalkCoin #8 named 'Black Swan'.

Are you a fan of puzzles and hidden treasures? Well, if yes, WoodCollector‘s post on the forum BitcoinTalk will attract your attention. Yesterday, this unknown user published a message about hidden treasure worth 5,000 BTC. Moreover, he also posted the key to find the treasure.

WoodCollector says that he is fond of films about hidden treasure and “the concept of something being on this planet that nobody has found that is worth enough to change someones life.” The user adds that he’s been thinking about his legacy and wants to leave his mark on history. Satoshi Nakamoto inspired WoodCollector to launch this incredible puzzle:

“Hidden on this planet somewhere is a 22″ long 8” round titanium air proof time capsule container. Inside that container is 1,000 bronze bitcoins. Each one of those bronze coins is engraved with the private key to an address that holds 5BTC. Total inside the container there is key’s to 5,000BTC.”

WoodCollector’s post reads that its author has made and sold 9 wooden bitcoins(see the pictures above). Each coin contains a part of puzzle. But the key to decode the first part of that puzzle is the tenth coin which WoodCollector gave to someone he choose from BitcoinTalk.

“In order to decode each individual wooden coin you will have to have #10 in its physical presence and in order to solve the entire first clue you will need to posses and have all 10 coins in the same physical location.

The clues in the coins were crafted in a fashion that you will never find them let alone figure them out via photographs, with x-rays, or in any fashion other than having all the coins in the same location at the same time to solve the puzzle.”

WoodCollector adds that the 10 coins are scattered around the world. Also, the author of the puzzle says that when the first clue is solved, another clue will appear. All in all, there are 5 clues to solve. It’ll make possible to find the location where the titanium capsule with 5,000BTC is situated.

“Wow, that is pretty neat,” writes BitcoinTalk user named DebitMe. “Being a purchaser of one of his pieces and spending some time interacting with WoodCollector has given me reason to believe that this could actually be true.  Very neat idea, and I wish the 10 lucky coin owners luck when searching for the treasure.”

Still, WoodCollector notes that in order to protect his identity he won’t appear and post on the web anymore:

“Thank you to all of you whom purchased my artworks from this forum and a very special thanks to all of you whom sold me wood over these past months which made this all possible.

Regardless of the poor treatment of the self-righteous trolls and children on this forum, this treasure is my parting gift to all of you who support bitcoin in hopes that it can bring at least 10 of you together from around the globe with bitcoin at the center of it all.”

The story will be updated later.
