Hey,

I'd like to figure out how fast BIP38 paper wallets could get cracked in case someone gets to them physically and tries to guess the password.

I created three BIP38 encrypted paper wallets with easy to crack passwords. Only small and capital English letters are used (from "a" to "Z", no numbers, no special characters). Say thanks when you get the money : )

I'll update this post with results when all three wallets are redeemed.

Happy cracking!

-snip-

I'll bite, bored at work a little bit. I am as we speak generating word lists for the 4 Character key, lets see how long it takes to even generate all the keys (16 Core Machine). I haven't setup an automated way to Decrypt the key with my word-list yet, so I might just donate the list with the key when it finishes being generated.

Started Generating the word list at 10:45 am

Edit: Added timestamp

From what I understand about BIP38, it uses salsa/scrypt for its encryption algorithm among other things. It takes insanely more powerful hardware to brute force then many other password algo's because it takes such a long time w/ each iteration.
Someone ran a test on it in reddit once ... ah ... here, are the results:
http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2yx99h/my_4_character_bip38_cracking_challenge_has_been/
4 char, w/ hints took a year to crack!

But it was with all unicode characters... Here there are 4 characters, only a-Z, so it should work out much faster... as far as I know..

Trying to compile, I'll see what I can come up with... Errors out with this: configure.ac:89: warning: macro 'AM_PATH_GLIB_2_0' not found in library

Can you give some hint like first and last letter from those four ? It would be appreciated and will make my work more easy. There are thousand of combination from these 4 letters which is impossible to crack.

Second password is a standard 5-letter English word. It should be in any English dictionary.
