How To Obtain The Leporine Key

Hello again.

I was not the first to find the key this time, props to EnigmaZer0 for this one! After seeing that everyone enjoyed understanding how the first clues were solved I thought I'd provide an explanation for The Leporine Key.

The second clue dropped early afternoon EDT on (easter) Sunday April 21 2019. The clue can be viewed on the satoshis treasure website here and looked like this:

 _____       _            _     _ _       _____
/  ___|     | |          | |   (_| )     |_   _|

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: ( If you read the QR code with your phone you will be directed to this url:

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:


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 ( years ago was going to help me here.

The first thing I noticed was
