Bitcoin Magazine was cofounded by Mihai Alisie and Vitalik Buterin in late 2011 early 2012. It was the first magazine dedicated to cryptocurrency. Vitalik at 17 years old was a gifted writer and a mathematical prodigy. The pair would later go on to cofound Etherium in 2017. As Bitcoin Magazine began to evolve, it gained traction among the early adopters and the new mainstream alike.

Clue 25 - Solved
Hidden Words of the Kumiho
GITM alludes to the burning of the Chapter 1 Tapestry cards that were in quite high supply. Naturally the community took it upon themselves to see to it that an inferno was set ablaze with no promise of recompense.
Over 10% were burned and GITM was satisfied. One member of the community had been leading the charge with the burn since before this perticular mystery. @ShaneX was selected and gifted a 1/1 card called Kumiho Through The Looking Glass.
How it was solved
The theory had been proposed that 12 words were being referenced to by the clock coin in the NFT and could lead to a bitcoin wallet.
@Naturelice began finding words in the card.. This revealed 11 words.. @ShaneX was given the 12th word by GITM, the missing word the seed phrase for a bitcoin wallet containing 0.1BTC. He selflessly chose to share the information with the community, allowing the prize to be found and the wallet to be unlocked. The community honourably shared the prize amongst those who participated in solving the Kumiho Mystery.

Clue 26 - Solved
GITM supplies the Hunters with two images and words in the form of clues…
The clue for the first image was;
“This image is flat and boring.
Therefore, show it to me with greater depth. Demonstrate its tie to a number with which you have become all-too familiar.”
Then a Cypher;
“Form of NLBGOYPGDAUPKRZDNPTLQXJSZ_OTSYD_POGMQEUIAGUPNJPKT”
Then for the second image;
“It’s day has come”
How it was solved
The Magic Square in the first image had all numbers equating to 33.
A Magic Cube would create more depth and equate to the familiar number 42.
The Hunters utilised the second image to decipher the Cypher.
The Trifid Cypher was utilised to create the sentence “AN_HOMAGE_TO_EMPTY_BEHAVIOR__VERY_UNDEFINING_GIFT”.
The next step was an anagram solved by @wufo#5315, leading us back to the very beginning of the Hunt to GITM’s words…
