I've read there would be 1,461,501,637,330,902,918,203,684,832,716,283,019,655,932,542,976 combinations. But with the exploding use of new bitcoin address for every transactions and with the ease of creating address, some automated bots can create unlimited number of addresses. So what if we ran out of bitcoin address. Is it even possible?

I think this thread has been answered before. there is no need to worry about the number of addresses. Go back to school and take a calculus course. They will teach about imaginary numbers never reaching the x or y axis on a graph. if that's too difficult to explain, go back to school and upgrade your Math.

Signatures? How about learning a skill... I don't care either way. Everybody has to make a living somehow.

I'd be surprised if the sun haven't turned into a red giant and swallowed earth by then. scientists estimated that to happen in 5 billion years, btw.

Although this is definitely possible, it would never happen any time soon. There are just too many combinations...

At 1billion (10^9) addresses per sec
~1,461,501,637,330,902,918,203,684,832,716,283,019,655 sec before we run out or ~4.63 * 10^31 years

Yes it's possible, but by the time it happens our sun will have burned out and will be a dark, smoking cinder.  Bitcoin and humanity will have moved on, and we will probably have evolved far past the need for money.

Hit the ignore button, asshole.  I know you're completely biased against signature campaigns, but that's your problem.  What I wrote was far more constructive than yours--but this is a silly argument to have and I'm bored with it already.

Thank you for your answers. The conclusion would be Though possible it is unlikely to run out of bitcoin address even if we create billions of addresses per second for next billions of years..
