What a way to bless someone, but how am I going to get 1 out of the 12 random words. Just 12 random words out of the numerous words in the whole world. That's okay though. Goodluck to anyone that will win it. Loool. But I think you want to try it, guess Sleep as one of the words. I think sleep comes more randomly in almost all my wallets. So, go ahead and guess Sleep.

Hey guys, 

I just simple want to give 0.01 btc, so follow my post on twitter to get it.

 

The funds was moved to a different address. However there were 10 words and 2 are still unknown, perhaps the sponsor have had to use it.

even if you can guess sleep to be one of the words :D you still have 11 words to guess ! and if we said there are 100k different words in english ( its way more than that ofcourse ) you will have than 100000^11 , you can see the large number !! its simply impossible to guess the 12 recovery words :)

Theres actually only 2048 words that can possibly used for BIP39 mnemonics, so this greatly reduces the chances of brute forcing it. Furthermore, if you have the wallet address to compare checksum it becomes even easier. Lastly, the words can only fit in certain spots, meaning you can't use all 2048 words in any spot and it depends on the words prior to it. I presume whoever cracked it did so in a few hours after receiving the 10th word :/ 

Highly doubt windsfun took it back out, hes a good guy and based on his wagering, I doubt he needed it for anything.

Thanks for the info, 

blockchain recover don't have the feature like the one that gives this error message: "too many attempts pls try again later" ?

thank you for the info .. but even if its 2048 words, you still have a chance of ( 2048^12) which is 1/5*10^39 ... still impossible to do though ... maybe if you knew some words of the mnemonic you will have a better chance !,
