The Jade Key

Geostationary Orbit

These three keys begin my Hunt. The first of one thousand, they are hidden in locations around the earth, in places where many dwell and one with only a small number of inhabitants. These locations can be discovered by monitoring the output of the primitive orbitals known in your time as GALAXY18, EUTELSAT 113, TELSTAR 11N, and TELSTAR18V at 1PM EST, APRIL 14th in the year 2019. If you can collect these keys and then go on to find 397 of their companions, a great treasure will be yours. This treasure is not jewels or gold or the debased pieces of paper that pass for money in this sad Age; instead, it is Bitcoin, a digital treasure forged from deep cryptographic truths.

This is not history’s first great hunt, nor its last, but it is MINE, and so it is to me that you must prove yourself. I have devised a series of puzzles and challenges of increasing difficulty; they will test even the most resourceful hunter or clan. The rules of my hunt can be found here. Good luck.

The Journey

Some were able to detect similar text as above with latitude longitude coordinates being emitted from Blockstream satellites. These coordinates pointed to particular cities and for those who went to the first location in-person, they were able to find this:

When the image was scanned, it took us to this link https://satoshistreasure.xyz/k1 and we attempted to enter the password ‘orbital’ in there, which took us inside to see our very first key.

Quote: Oh, yes, I remember the key. Finding it wasn’t the problem; it lay in plain sight. The challenge was moving it. A key a kilometer long — a cruel joke. And you should have seen the lock! (M. Bascule, Interviews with Great Hunters)
