Hi, I'm having the same trouble tonight.
It looks very much like some sort of automated 'water testing' kit looking for wordpress sites to which it can automatically post.
It doesn't appear very bright, although it posts a hash or random code to presumably identify itself with it's own kit, it doesn't seem to test whether it can post links or not (perhaps they've dreamed up a nefarious use which doesn't involve links?!)
In the mean time, all the hit's I'm getting seem to originate from one of three servers on the same range from 18.104.22.168-153 in the Netherlands (so says RIPE)
If you want to block them off for now, you can use your .htaccess file for Apache and block 22.214.171.124-153 with a 'Deny' statement but make sure you know what you're doing with htaccess Allow/Deny or you could block the lot ;)
That should at least stop this bot posting. I don't think Akismet is going to handle it as all it will get is an apparently random string.
It's not going to help much if this starts coming from other servers outside that range though
