Addrgen can now generate Litecoin and other alt addresses.

https://github.com/weex/addrgen/archive/master.zip

To generate a Litecoin address you would run:

Code:
./addrgen.py --otherversion=48

I have used this script to create addresses where I didn't want to run the daemon or other *coin software. Python is the only requirement.

How fast would this be to generate 10000 addresses? I might try it later, thanks.

Probably just will take a minute depending on how fast your machine is and if you have it print to the screen or not. It can also be a very slow vanitygen if you pipe it into grep.

In other words, much much faster than litecoind?
