The Flipstarter has been completed with some time to spare, what a relief!

I was thinking I would be left to have to cancel such a lottery for the second time. Thankfully not.

So here we go! I'm doing the drawing thread in this post, where anyone can comment to correct me or ask questions.

Reminder: These were the lottery rules

Bad news for you is if you didn't already pledge in the Flipstarter, you don't stand a chance of winning the 2 BCH. There's always a next time!


UPDATE: Our winner has been located and has claimed the prize (see comments below this article).

Congratulations to Anonymous honeyeater!


Archive thread of the completed Flipstarter, with all the names: https://archive.is/nyCC7

34 contributors. Cool.

But I gotta exclude my own entries (btcfork (test) and Pledge & Win 2BCH). That leaves 32 lottery participants.

The Flipstarter completion was confirmed by this transaction on the BCH blockchain:

a5fb52a3524ca74405558f8d8c2d777ba9ecebaa9cbf128e39c5d2edb205ff9e

Electron Cash and blockchair fortunately agree, this was confirmed in block 657992 . The hash of that block is

000000000000000000650673c8fbc2c17c0b5eb012a6b3db7562bf57647f61a2

We will need that hash later, it's got the bits we crave.

Set export LC_ALL=C on my Linux terminal... and check:

$ locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=en_US:en
LC_CTYPE="C"
LC_NUMERIC="C"
LC_TIME="C"
LC_COLLATE="C"
LC_MONETARY="C"
LC_MESSAGES="C"
LC_PAPER="C"
LC_NAME="C"
LC_ADDRESS="C"
LC_TELEPHONE="C"
LC_MEASUREMENT="C"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="C"
LC_ALL=C

Yup, collation is set to "C" as per the rules. Beep bop!

Beautiful. The numbers from 0..31 fit neatly into 5 bits, so what we need is the last 5 bits of the block hash to determine our first potential winner.

I say potential, because I need to see if they are reachable, otherwise we need to pick another winner according to the rules.

The last byte of the hash is hex a2 which is decimal 162, and binary 1010 0010.

The last 5 bits of that are 00010 , which is decimal ... this is hard ... ok, worked it out. It's 2 in decimal. So our first winning candidate is the very lucky ...

who donated 1.02 BCH (very nice) and has given the SLP address simpleledger:qz03pfchp0kr9wr3gk63uvzqkvehe3ymgc5ymgnpwz

The hunt for the anonymous honeyeater

How do we go about locating the Anonymous honeyeater to give him 2 BCH?

Presumably he/she/whatever sex a honeyeater has, doesn't want their identity known.

Hopefully, no problem!

Hopefully, Anonymous honeyeater paid attention to the lottery announcement and is listening somewhere on social media.

If you are the Anonymous honeyeater in question, get in touch below for further KYH (know your honeyeater).

All other anonymous honeyeaters, sit this one out, you don't get to win this time!


To be continued when we hear from our friend the Anonymous honeyeater, or when further measures to locate him are tried before giving up and selecting a different winner.

Until tomorrow!

UPDATE: he has been found (in the comments below). All done, thanks all for playing!
