I'm using vanity, but

  • can't see how that derives in actual transactions.
  • many of those addresses aren't mine.
Selling vanity addresses would be useless. I wouldn't trust the seller not to keep a copy of the corresponding key.

It could be done. Offering them as a premium option with an eWallet service would be one example, and that wouldn't require more trust than such things already do.

Caught up to this point. No promises from here, but I'll try to check in and keep going for a while.

I would be very interested to hear about anyone using it in the real world. So far I've mostly used it for sending between machines in my house in stead of emailing myself. I did use it in one in-person trade. I had the guy read me some of the address form his wallet and then I showed him what came up and he verified it was the right one. It was a little awkward because I had to ask for a used one though.

I imagine a good use would be integration at point of sale. A little screen displays a QR code and the text address. If you are using a web wallet w/ firstbits integrated you don't have to take a picture you just start typing until the full address shows up and you pay.

I should clarify, you'll either have to see a bunch of wrong addresses popping up as you type (suboptimal imo) or type one char more than the firstbits to indicate that you are done. In the POS scenario I just mentioned the retailer doesn't even know about firstbits except to make sure that they post an address that is in the chain. But they don't need to look up their firstbits or mark it in a special way.

I think I'm not getting something. When I put in my address, it simply said "This address is not in the chain." The address has been used for btc transfer before, so I don't understand why it's not finding it.

Please post or PM me or freemoney so we can take a look at it.  We haven't come up against such a problem before, so I am curious to investigate it further.

Try searching for the address at blockexplorer.com. All I can guess is that you grabbed a different one than you though. The address listed at the top of the Bitcoin client changes on it's own so if you grabbed that one and payed to it you might not have noticed that it changed on you.

I just checked and the generate address from the most recent block is showing it's firstbits, so our database updater is not broken.
