Will you help my find the treasure?
I just can't find it!

The only hint I have is
Paste->e28DSjPF

Note

Inspired by Challenger5's puzzle
I hope your internet's working

  • $\begingroup$ I think you should add a note saying inspired by chaser5s puzzle $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Oct 31 '16 at 10:14
  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil Trust me, I really wanted too, but I was afraid that would give too big a clue on to how to start the puzzle :/(Did you mean challenger5?) $\endgroup$ – stack reader Oct 31 '16 at 10:17
  • $\begingroup$ Nice little puzzle - I would recommend using i.stack.imgur for future treasure hunts to prevent link rot. $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Oct 31 '16 at 11:18

Using Jonathan's answer of the Previous riddle:

go to pastebin: http://pastebin.com/e28DSjPF

where you can see:

Okk, I think I am getting closer to the treasure!
I just found another clue!
************************************************
The next paste is too fast for this bin. Where might it be?
yisaqugozi.md

I think the "too fast" is relevant. Not sure.

UPDATE:

Yeah, the "too fast" was a key. I looked up similar pages as Pastebin ("related:pastebin.com") and there was HasteBin so : http://hastebin.com/yisaqugozi.md

Printed :

Alright! We must be getting closee!
*********************************************
1-1 = ?

UPDATE 2:
Thanks to Jaydm's answer:

pasting the url piece into zerobin : https://zerobin.net/?90a5ec17f8d14a14#QWaXipJ0snQIZHdQDMlS66N8psrm+jjT45GSISkoj+8=

We get:

Cool I just found the legendaryy treasure!
********************************
tlFKEv3czQ/CMjii235uag==
********************************

But looks like I need a key to open it.
Did you see any hints to where the key might be on your way here?

Also, the key hole seems a little bit weird. Not sure how to use the key.
Maybe I should ask about it to the master locksmith Rijndael the 128th who lives in the city of Ecb.

UPDATE 3 AND LAST

so using this decrypt tool:

The key is "key" thanks to @oleslaw comment down here
The algorithm is Rijndael-128
Mode is ECB
Content is "tlFKEv3czQ/CMjii235uag== "

The treasure is:

Lots of gold!

    $\begingroup$ Going good! +1 for the hastebin. The last one is too broad to answer. There should have been some hint to get it. You can replace ? with 1-1 and then remove the letters and just keep the numbers and operators to solve it. :) $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Oct 31 '16 at 9:46

    $\begingroup$ The double letters in the messages spell "key". $\endgroup$ – oleslaw Oct 31 '16 at 10:46
