An anonymous supporter of cryptocurrencies found the Easter eggs hidden in the Genesis block of bitcoin by Satoshi Nakamoto. Many people know that the hash of the first block Nakamoto added this text: “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks”. Now I found that the text was actually found twice. Easter eggs also includes the hexadecimal version posted in the comments to the code.

Each bitcoin block has its own coinbase transaction. This is a special transaction that adds the miners, when they begin to mine the block. It is used to receive the reward for found block (more on transactions with the main cryptocurrencies can be found here).

Blue text below is the pseudocode for the real Genesis block (pseudo-code is not production code, it just describes his logic).

Satoshi actually included a “encrypted” version of the famous headline from the Times in the coinbase transaction in the Genesis block.

In line #1616 is a variable containing a hexadecimal value. After her conversion to alphanumeric format, you receive the following text:

sknab rof tuoliab dnoces fo knirb no rollecnahC 9002 / naJ / 30 semiT ehT

Now read this from right to left.

Although this second message is a variant of the long been found the Easter eggs, it’s nice to know that there are more interesting and capable people, who find traces of the mysterious Nakamoto nearly ten years after production of the first block of bitcoin.
