with an average setup how long would you expect it to take before finding a vanity address like 1ELonMUSK14JSGNYAcPJNqubuFByZPyjcj? Or 1SPacex1daUkw7L6ux8Cfw7jASexb9umL?

Plus take into consideration how many private keys people have lost over the years, it's sad but many bitcoins are lost.

First time I hear about an address without private key O.o so basically there's more of these addresses or only one?

there's 399 known burn addresses
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 8.97 Bitcoins Burned in 2017 on: December 31, 2017, 05:57:11 PM
Several reasons I am aware of;
(1) tribute to Satoshi as is the case with the Genesis Block
(2) as a "proof-of-burn" for new cryptocurrency
(3) and lastly a default output when "unable to decode output address" see 1111111111111111111114oLvT2
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 8.97 Bitcoins Burned in 2017 on: December 31, 2017, 05:48:36 PM
The total amount of bitcoin in circulation decreased by almost 9 in 2017 due to “burn” addresses. Burn addresses, like the Genesis Block, are deadlier than “zomby” addresses, because there is no chance of coming back once BTC is sent to it. There are almost 400 known bitcoin burn addresses, i.e. valid addresses with no private key, to which, for a variety of reasons, people have sent 2,759.42507135 over the years. In 2017, 9 of these addresses received 8.97140133 BTC.

12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Richlist History? on: October 22, 2017, 05:07:04 PM
Does anyone know of a website that tracks the progression of bitcoin's richest addresses over time? Ie these addresses were the richest as of month x, these addresses were the richest as of month x+1 etc. I found such a website once but am unable to re-find. Hoping someone in the community might have a suggestion. Thanks!
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How I lost 95 Bitcoin on: October 11, 2017, 12:25:57 AM
You can set a "watch" on these addresses and be notified by email when your bitcoins are moved again here;

It's possible the criminal won't hide their IP address and/or moves the balance to a wallet service that can be identified. Only takes one mistake for scammers to be revealed forever.

A mint 2011 series 1 Casascius physical bitcoin sold for USD $7,100 on eBay yesterday.

During the last bitcoin price spike in 2013 (to $1250) many changed hands on eBay for about ~USD$3,000.

Yesterday's transaction represents a ~250% premium over current prices.
