My wife is annoyed with my swearing*. I don't do it often IMO but often enough that she thinks my son may pick up on it when he's old enough to understand. I'm trying hard to stop and of course I have people saying to use a swear jar. I can't tell you the last time I've had change on me. I can't tell you the last time I've even used cash. So obviously my idea was to make a BTC Swear Jar! It seems so obvious now! I'll definitely stop swearing if I have to keep adding these small inputs constantly. It'll be so aggravating that eventually I'll just stop swearing, right?

I won't be spending any of the funds in this swear jar as they'll be going towards my son's education. He can't even talk yet so I've got some time to save up some bitcoins and let them appreciate. The idea is that I won't be adding much to it for long though because I should be swear free.

I'll be starting this shortly. If anyone else needs a swear jar feel free to join in. My vanitygen is just working on an education related vanity address at the moment for all funds to be transferred over to once I'm swear free.

*Also annoyed with words like stupid, idiot, nincompoopery, deuce, butt, and pretty much anything that comes out of my mouth if I hurt myself. For all intensive purposes I'll be counting those as 'swears' too. Anything you wouldn't expect a toddler to blurt out counts as a swear.

In the sense that I'll be using the addresses over and over again, sure. But other than that I'm not sure what you mean. I made the vanity addresses with the help of an Ubuntu Live USB so I'm not open to any threats that may be on my system.

Pretty cool idea. What if this was an actual iOS app that tracked your voice and deducted BTC everytime you swore?  Cheesy Maybe a future blockchain application?  Shocked

Nevertheless, if I catch myself swearing or cussing someone out, I'll donate some BTC to your address.

If someone else tries to do the same vanity, do  they have an increased chance to find a collision?

Now you sir are leaping into the future. That's an amazing idea. If you create that app I'll be the first one to test it out for you hahaha.

I highly highly doubt it but I I'm not the one to ask about that tbh. The vanitygen thread has lots of experts that you could ask if you're curious. Pretty much every physical bitcoin maker uses vanity addresses as well so that's another entire market that trusts vanity addresses. I'm not saying it's correct, I'm just saying I don't see how it would ever be an issue. Basically all vanitygen does is create hundreds of thousands (or millions) of addresses at random and keeps going and going u tip it finds what you were looking for. To brute force my address would still take you quadrillions of trillions of billions of years.
