This being true or not, it's a lesson for anyone looking to address any of those websites take more care while doing this.

For anyone wanting to use a address generator online: always use a known and trusted site (preferably https://www.bitaddress.org/) and always TURN OFF YOUR INTERNET before generating any address. That way you won't be in the danger zone.

And even if this guy is lying, I do not doubt that there are sites like this who has some option to log all address generated, especially those that generate the address on a server (eg: bitcoinvanitygen.com) and not on the user's browser.

This.

Pretty much what I was going to say word for word.

I will wait for this if this is so true or not, it's little interesting IMO, besides my wallets are not from this kind of sites and I never used sites to store my coins, I preferably use a vanity address made on my local computer with of course turn off my internet access while doing it. But in this situation, if this is legit or not, this must serve as a lesson to all users here, or anyone using Bitcoin that don't use any untrusted sites that are related to cryptocurrency especially if it's related to money.

I think this is just another made up story and bullshit. He just needs some attention and he might want to increase traffic to his website. There are some websites which displays bitcoin address & private key pairs but none of those address contain any bitcoin or none of them have ever received any single bitcoin in past.
How would this story increase the traffic to his website? He's basically saying that by using his wallet generator, your addresses will be compromised.

It is probably a hoax just because I don't think anyone would be stupid enough to make this info public, but the scenario he describes is perfectly possible and I'm quite sure that some of these paper wallet generators do keep the private keys.

This is a very good example of human nature: "If I have the opportunity, I will scam."
It's never "If I have the opportunity, I will help." Human race is worse than animals.

I would say that human race is representing the good and the bad elements as we are a mixture of dark and light. And I agree with you that there are some who will go scamming others if presented with an opportunity to do so and that is quite sad, to say the least. We are essentially selfish and the pull of the flesh is always around us.

Its been always part on a human being of being greedy and when it comes to money our evil side do pop out depending on whats the motive of a certain person.For OP if those wallets arent yours then better not to sweep out of those bitcoins inside on those wallet since its not yours afterall.Im not saying im in the good side but this thing would be better deed as a person but still it on your own decision since those wallets cant really be traced by its original owners.

Totally going to be a ton of bullshit, if someone had access to this and it was someone who was reputable and actually had some sort of backing then the entire bitcoin community would be in shambles right now, so this threat isn't anything to be worried about and I'd just simply ignore it.

Why are you so sure is bullshit?

How many times have people used online address generators?
Thousands of times.

There are tons of threads in this forum about now not to f*** do it but look at the numbers of sites advertising this.
It wouldn't surprise me to have at least 100 guys around here that have online generated wallets by a 3rd party.

People are stupid and this is it.

And why should it be such a catastrophe ?
Idiots pay the price and it has nothing to do with bitcoin.

It's not only newbies that go wrong here. There are plenty of long term members that still don't understand that it's not worth making use of online services to either generate addresses, or to store coins. People mostly go for these options because they value convenience more than having total control over their funds. It's always like this -> people only learn when they end up losing money/coins.

Exactly, because people will do anything to amass wealth and so Bitcoin being so huge in our days would definitely impress some bad eyes to scheme and target vulnerabilities among its usage so everyone must be careful with how we keep our wallets.

it is hard to believe that. Anyhow, just to be safe, I think that we should try to use a different address every 3 months so that no one can even hack our bitcoin wallet. In my opinion, I think that he is a liar so that we do not need to care much about him

Why do I have this feeling that he is just trolling because the crypto world to me is a dynamic one and there are new entrepreneurs coming in everyday to offer one service or the other. Leaving a thread here for some days alone might categorised as been dead because it would have moved to may the third page. So I don't see reason why people will just go generate address or register on one whose owner is no where to be found not only for few days but for several years.

bitaddress.org receives about 1,300 unique visitors and 1,430 (1.10 per visitor) page views per day which should earn about $10.40/day from

advertising revenue. Estimated site value is $6,000.23. According to Alexa Traffic Rank bitaddress.org is ranked number 321,350 in the world and

0.00026% of global Internet users visit it. Site is hosted in Germany and links to network IP address 78.47.86.61.

Creation Date: 2011-09-04T04:17:42Z

So I guess it is not bitaddress.org  Shocked The source code is public, so someone should have spotted if something was fishy. This would be very

interesting to know what site it was.  Huh

So most probably this looks like bullshit. First thing first, if he had access to these many private keys then there is no reason whatsoever that he wouldn't take all the BTC run away.
I, and most of the users here seems to be in safe zone even if the guy turns out to be true, as most of us have only used bitaddress (right?) and since it's a public source code I doubt that's the website the guy is talking about.

If he is lying, it was done to discredit online wallet generators. That would drive more people to online exchanges. Just saying.

Online wallet generators seem inherently insecure, so I guess it's OK if they're discredited. Then again online exchanges aren't much better...

Thanks for trying though I suppose. It's better to be safe than sorry.

This is a very good example of human nature: "If I have the opportunity, I will scam."
It's never "If I have the opportunity, I will help."

Human race is worse than animals.

It's human greed, if you had the same opportunity you would do it as well.

 The appraisal of one's own action is often misattributed to action of others for a given situation.  What this means is that you have just informed us that, you would likely scam others if the opportunity presented itself.  That's sad.  Please don't profess to speak for all of humankind.

It's 4chan... at the end of the day it's 95% trolling and 5% legit and im being generous. I've never posted here ever, but i've checked out the so called /biz/ section and seems like all the kids are talking bitcoin and altcoins, pretty much the entire board is about that. It shows crypto is slowly getting inside all those communities and those kids are learning fast and getting ahead of the pack, even tho most will have to get scammed by random shitcoins before the learn BTC is the number one coin and the rest are gambles.

one thing that i always find stupid about these posts like the screenshot OP shared is that why are they even telling the public about it! if they were to scam and really had private keys and ability to steal the coins of those who used that website, then he wouldn't have shared it in public, he would have just emptied the wallets and then shared and laughed about it!
Did you read what the OP said? He has access to the private keys, went through half of the wallets, found around 8 bitcoins and more to go through. He is scared to steal those bitcoins and run away. He scared that he might get traced.

Anyone generated online and still has funds in them better to move them to a secured wallet, I believe this is a challenge every admin of all the exchanges and all of the web wallets are facing, being a trustee and not be tempted to steal people's money is something which not everyone is capable of.
