In a video posted to YouTube, David Oranchak explains the processes he and two others went through to crack “The 340” cipher, which is made up of 340 symbols—some of which are English characters and others of which are cryptic marks.

“Oh my god, so this is a big one. We have a solution for the 340, and it’s real,” Oranchak says in the video.
