This is Solution 5 from [Knop] and is due to Aleksey Borodin, a high school student at the time.

Let O be the circumcenter of ΔBDE.

The inscribed angle ∠DBE = 30° and is subtended by the same arc as the central angle DOE. Thus

Triangles BDO and BCD are both isosceles implying that CO bisects ∠BCD. Thus

Now, in triangles CDE and COE, EO = ED, CE is a common side and
