Mod note: there are reports of people getting their BTC stolen from addresses generated using this service, use at your own risk.



THE MOD IS CORRECT WE HAVE BEEN HACKED.

Someone accessed the site on the 31st Dec 2013. Any address before that date are 100% OK.

They changed the javascript in the calckey page that ran on your browser to after it calced the private key to send it direct from your browser to their server. Address is listed in comment below. If you used bitaddress.org to calc you key you are OK.

We will be paying out refunds this weekend to addresses bought for over 0.005. Cost of addresses below that we will donate to BTC Foundation the amount as else too many small payments to be made.
Sent - 7a8e2458b230d346c14435de8e11578f3abf022607f189dbf9f488334abd56d7







So you fancy a bitcoin address like 1MyName62WiL6W2Qoj9AE1cerfCHRaUW4x ?

And you want it to be 100% secure (i.e. no-one else knows your private key).

Now this is all possible using our new service at:
https://bitcoinvanity.appspot.com
without having to install any software.

Just enter your desired address prefix (in the above example it would be 1MyName), and the site will calculate if this is a free address or one you have to pay for (the example is just 0.004BTC but most shorter ones are FREE).

The site will then in your browser create a new keypair. You need to keep the private key safe.

Then the address will be searched for automatically (once you have made a payment if required).

When the address is found you then generate the private key to import into your Wallet using a javascript web page where all the data is kept in your browser.

Features:
  • Short addresses are FREE (e.g. 1Nibor is free)
  • Your address is 100% secure
  • Nothing to install
  • If the private key imports and you can see the address in Wallet you are 100% sure it is working
  • Checks if FirstBits for this address is available
  • Instant searching for low value address (6 confirmation for ones over 1BTC)


Additional information is available on the Help page of the site.


Enjoy...

This is now out of Beta, and we have a reasonable amount of power so can generate addresses for you in a reasonable time frame.

nice work. i have vanitygen myself, but for non-CLI users this is just right.

maybe convert the keys to readable format instead of hex.

This service looks very promising.
Touch up the page design a little bit, and you'll be successful in no time.

Dude Cheesy This was crazy fast ^_^ Good luck in the future. (I just don't like lagging out my CPU on my own computer. definitely worth 0.1BTC :3)

One suggestion, allow case insensitive searches. Easier on you, cheaper for us Smiley

I'm impressed at the speed it matches though. I got a match for a 6 character case sensitive string in less than 10 minutes.

Well you can do it for free with VanityGen if you don't mind using up processing power on your own computer. (With a CPU, it's dog slow, so I recommend this site unless you have a  GPU. I only manage to pull about 800k addresses a second, while some manage to pull millions.)

Has anyone had any issues?
I can see that there are between 5-10 addresses created a day, but few paid for ones Sad.

Any constructive feedback welcome.

vanitypool is less userfriendly but costs less for people looking for multiple addresses. You may be able to use it as a backend for your service and profit both from the added mining power and cost reduction when offering lookups for multiple addresses.

Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

To the OP, are you planning on adding any new changes to the website?

This has been one of my most favorite Bitcoin services for a long time.

No, I spent my time adding a patch to the bitcoin client to make it easier to import a private key.
But the developers were fine with the code but did not like the principle!
See: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/2050

Most people want it:

Maybe add a case insensitive option to lessen work, and therefore enable cheaper addresses.

Is this still a thing? E-mail sent through contact form a few days ago still unanswered and the statuses are showing unpaid, but they have been. Just trying to figure out if I'm being too impatient or if something is messed up...

There's an alternative (a pool) running (I mine on it and just created an address yesterday for one of its customers): https://vanitypool.appspot.com/.

It's cheaper (and the recommended fees are even a bit overvalued: my miners don't pickup work from this pool unless it's more profitable than mining Bitcoin or Litecoin. With the current mining market conditions, they work on 7 char address prefixes (including leading 1) if they are paid 0.05BTC or more. Bitcoinvanity asks 0.84BTC for the same service...

If you look for several addresses using the same public key you will make it even more profitable for miners to work on them and could lower your fee a bit for each address.

Just updated with a 75% price reduction.

1A34567 costs just  0.004BTC which is a lot less than the 0.05BTC quoted above!

And we have miners that will work on your prefix instantly.


PS - we were using bitcoin247 and they seem to be having issues so have switch to another provider.

I should probably report that nibor squared everything away shortly after his last post above. I received the addresses and did not have to pay again.

And then immediately after, the price dropped to where what I paid for 2 addresses could now get me 25 lol. I decided to do one more just for the heck of it. Payment was accepted automatically and quickly and I received the address quickly as well. It appears everything has been fixed.

With the new pricing, it's a good service if you don't want to generate your own and/or have the computational ability to do so very quickly.
