This is a utility I made that does all of the following conversions:

BTCAddress <---> PubHash <---- PublicKey <---- PrivateKey <---> WalletImportFormatPrivateKey.

It can also generate new Bitcoin addresses, as well as Testnet and Namecoin.  It will correct single-character typos in Bitcoin addresses and private keys.

It requires the BouncyCastle Crypto library at http://www.bouncycastle.org/csharp/ (just the compiled assembly is fine).

You will have to compile it yourself.  I don't want to look like a trojan scammer.

In my utility, you can substitute characters in the private key, and have the utility recalculate the checksum.  Of course you can only substitute characters within the base 58 alphabet, so that eliminates O 0 I l.

Generate a random address, and then add a question mark to the WIF private key (turns off checksum).  Substitute characters.  Convert to hex, and then back to WIF (which will replace the checksum with a valid one).  Note that if you change the total number of characters away from 51, you'll get back garbage, so make sure that the character count is correct.

This is how I made my "vanity private keys".

Once you have a working vanity private key that stays the same no matter which way you convert it, then generate the public key and bitcoin address from it.

Neat project!

What do you plan to use the vanity private keys for?  Is there a point to it?  Seems like a waste to put the vanity in the only piece of information that isn't revealed to the public.

Nothing in particular... however, the application of delivering private keys will likely have plenty of uses, all of which could contain vanity private keys...

  • Bitbills
  • Offline savings wallets (paper wallets)
  • Bitcoin giveaways (where appropriate, the giver can take back the BTC if the recipient never redeems them... e.g. geocaching)
  • Poker chips with embedded bitcoin value
  • Bitcoin retail cards (where a person can buy BTC in a retail setting the same way they buy a gift card... they scratch off private key to get their coins)
  • Computerless transfer of coin value between parties who trust one another (like a cheque)

Perhaps a Bitcoin card manufacturer could put a PIN into the private key. Then when you redeem it the merchant will ask for the missing part?

That would not be secure, one knowing "most" of a private key could easily brute-force the remainder.

Would it be possible to include a command line interface (non GUI mode) for this program?

My apologies if it already includes this, and I just somehow missed it.

Thanks much.

Aren't there already CLI tools for this?

Recent updates posted to https://casascius.com/btcaddress-alpha.zip :

* Banknote voucher printer can now print notes with minikeys.
* New options on the main screen to copy
  • to the clipboard as a QR code graphic for pasting into other programs, where
  • can be bitcoin address, minikey, private key, or public hash.

Other updates that have been described elsewhere but not in this thread:

* Paper Wallet and Banknote Voucher printer allows printing of multiple colors of the winner of the recent Bitcoin Banknote contest.
* Base58 Calculator allows arbitrary conversions of base58 values to hexadecimal and vice versa, regardless of length.  Add a "?" to the end of any base58 string to suspend verification of the checksum.
* Support for compressed public keys and the ability to convert between compressed and uncompressed.
* Classes for managing Bitcoin addresses/pubkeys/privkeys/minikeys have been refactored and are ripe for scraping and using in other projects if needed.  You can gain programmatic access to the functions of the main "Bitcoin address Swiss army knife" screen in your own program simply by appropriating the classes Address, PublicKey, KeyPair, and MiniKeyPair.

As always, this is a program for Windows, and is based on Microsoft .NET and Visual Studio.  Source code is included in the zip.

I fail to make sense of this. Can't even tell which language this is.

Didn't look hard, but maybe someone can give me a hint? How to compile / run?

It's Microsoft's C#.  You can get a free/lite version of Visual Studio 2012 and it may be able to compile it. (I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't be able to, but I haven't tried).  This will hopefully get you going in the right direction though.

not to downplay this effort, but m$ is just not for me. There's plenty of python / js / java code around, also.

Thanks for this tool. I was hoping to use this to verify addresses from brainwallet/bitaddress. Can someone explain how to compile this in Linux/Ubuntu step by step? or if you have a compiled version for that OS, awesome! Thx
