How to Get Satoshi’s Treasure Keys – Guide

A new reality game called Satoshi’s Treasure has hidden the keys to $1 million worth of bitcoin across the globe.

We found some clues and thanks to the collaboration of github member johncantrell97  who write this explanation;
How I Obtained Satoshi’s Treasure Keys 1, 2, and 3 in Minutes


Today (April 16th 2019 at noon) the first major clues to discover key #1 was set to be released in a few cities. A QR code with the words ‘orbital’ were found at these locations and looked like this: (https://imgur.com/a/6rNmz7T). If you read the QR code with your phone you will be directed to this url: https://satoshistreasure.xyz/k1

At this URL you are prompted to input a passphrase to decrypt the first shard. An obvious first guess was to try the word ‘orbital’ from the QR code. Not suprisingly this worked! This reveals a congratulations page and presents the first key shard:

ST-0001-a36e904f9431ff6b18079881a20af2b3403b86b4a6bace5f3a6a47e945b95cce937c415bedaad6c86bb86b59f0b1d137442537a8.

Now, we were supposed to wait until April 17th to get clues from the other cities for keys #2 and #3 but that wouldn’t stop me from digging around with all the new information we had. All that time “playing” notpron (http://notpron.org/notpron/) years ago was going to help me here.

The first thing I noticed was the k1 in the url and quickly checked to see if k2k3, and k4 existed. I was excited to see that both k2 and k3 already existed but k4 (and anything higher) did not appear to exist yet.

The next thing I noticed was that k2 and k3 were both exactly the same setup as k1 where it wanted me to input a passphrase to “decrypt the page”. I thought this was strange wording as I expected the verification to happen server side. I checked the page source to find that the actual congrats page that reveals the shard was included in the source code (albeit encrypted by the passphrase).
