I had funds stolen from a 2011 address that I think was generated with vanity gen.
The address is 192SGgMXpzpjKyt4mnoNaAksvpA4y2HAKS
This address has never received any Bitcoin, but it has received Forkcoin Bitcoin Cash in 2018.
It doesn't look like a vanity address. So you're saying you've created it in 2011, only to use it in 2018?

Quote
Is there anybody that do analysis on the key or something?
No, that's not possible.

Quote
I am trying to figure out how it was compromised. Did my OS got hacked? My other funds where not stolen.
Did I  generate it with a compromised version of vanitygen that leaked the keys or generated weaks key on purpose?
How did you store the private key during those 7 years?

Hi guys, My cards  works only oclvanityminer64 version , but 64 bit version has no -x option ,(looking help also dont show -x option), but oclvanityminer (32bit version) does have -x .., but wont recognize my vega cards  Undecided

I want to choose which name to work on the pool? but without -x it is impossible with oclvanityminer64 ? is that true ? or any other trick possible ?

Generate a very long time and use it to create the bitcoin address you remember. Start eliminating all outside forces on your computer, you can end up also making it much harder for your computer to generate the random numbers used for private keys.

Whats up, I use Vanitygen frequently on new launches. I figure its easier and safer than compiling an unknown wallet. I just search github for pubkey_address, and usually in chainparams or base58 code files it tells you the address prefix to use as the "-X" flag in Vanitygen. I finally ran into an issue. I made 2 addresses for this coin https://github.com/Actinium-project/Actinium I searched for "Pubkey_address" as usual and found:
Quote
       base58Prefixes[PUBKEY_ADDRESS] = std::vector<unsigned char>(1,53);  //N
        base58Prefixes[SCRIPT_ADDRESS] = std::vector<unsigned char>(1,8);   //4
        base58Prefixes[SCRIPT_ADDRESS2] = std::vector<unsigned char>(1,80); //Z
        base58Prefixes[SECRET_KEY] =     std::vector<unsigned char>(1,73);  //W
        base58Prefixes[EXT_PUBLIC_KEY] = {0x04, 0x88, 0xB2, 0x1E};
        base58Prefixes[EXT_SECRET_KEY] = {0x04, 0x88, 0xAD, 0xE4};

So I run ./vanitygen -X 53 N based on the highlighted info found above and get my keypairs.

Well the wallet wont import them  Sad  "key format not recognized." Looks like Uncompressed WIF is meant to start with "3", compressed WIF with "B", vanitygen spits out a privkey starting with 7.

They have a walletgenerator.net fork where it lists the following info:
Quote
name, networkVersion, privateKeyPrefix, WIF_Start, CWIF_Start
"Actinium",            0x35, 0x49, "3",    "B"

anyways heres a tiny game.

theres 43,000 ACM coins there. they just launched but are trading on https://bitfex.trade/en/ACM/BTC for 375 satoshi. thats a $1000 bounty (if you dump into the buyside). So if theres any way to transform the priv created by vanitygen to what it needs to be to be used for this coin... id appreciate a rundown here so i can unlock the other wallet i generated. you can have the 43k coins.

$MAID & $BTC other than that some short hodls and some long held garbage.

Is it possible with this program do the following. I generate a random sequence of private keys and that the program would convert them to open addresses? For these addresses to be written to the file. For example, a file with private keys through the program on the output file with addresses and keys from them.

And where you can get acquainted with detailed descriptions of settings (variables) programs?

I'm not sure what exactly you're asking for. Vanitygen can output to a file:
Code:
Options:
-o <file>     Write pattern matches to <file>
If you want two different output files, one with addresses, and one with private keys, you'll have to script something by yourself.

Quote
And where you can get acquainted with detailed descriptions of settings (variables) programs?
Is this what you're looking for?
Code:
Vanitygen 0.22 (OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014)
Usage: ./vanitygen [-vqnrik1NT] [-t <threads>] [-f <filename>|-] [<pattern>...]
Generates a bitcoin receiving address matching <pattern>, and outputs the
address and associated private key.  The private key may be stored in a safe
location or imported into a bitcoin client to spend any balance received on
the address.
By default, <pattern> is interpreted as an exact prefix.

Options:
-v            Verbose output
-q            Quiet output
-n            Simulate
-r            Use regular expression match instead of prefix
              (Feasibility of expression is not checked)
-i            Case-insensitive prefix search
-k            Keep pattern and continue search after finding a match
-1            Stop after first match
-N            Generate namecoin address
-T            Generate bitcoin testnet address
-X <version>  Generate address with the given version
-F <format>   Generate address with the given format (pubkey or script)
-P <pubkey>   Specify base public key for piecewise key generation
-e            Encrypt private keys, prompt for password
-E <password> Encrypt private keys with <password> (UNSAFE)
-t <threads>  Set number of worker threads (Default: number of CPUs)
-f <file>     File containing list of patterns, one per line
              (Use "-" as the file name for stdin)
-o <file>     Write pattern matches to <file>
-s <file>     Seed random number generator from <file>

-X <version>  Generate address with the given version
-F <format>   Generate address with the given format (pubkey or script)
-s <file>     Seed random number generator from <file>

How it works with examples would be to see.



-f <file>     File containing list of patterns, one per line
              (Use "-" as the file name for stdin)


I created an address file vanitygen64.exe -o 123 -f aaa.txt that I need to add to the string to make it work?

I'm still unsure what exactly you're trying to accomplish, but I think you want this:
Code:
vanitygen64.exe -o output.txt -f pattern.txt -k

My pattern.txt contains this:
Code:
1test
1There
1Loyce

When I run it, all results are shown in the console, and written to the file output.txt (don't use these private keys!):
Code:
Pattern: 1Loyce                                                                
Address: 1LoyceFtdDYd3WQRvJvQotZdYQqBz8Ah6j
Privkey: 5KYBEdFrFr79K8GuqtghW5GuAA2JTXb2U2tGCAH18EFwFdRRzvf
Pattern: 1test                                                                
Address: 1testYBxFHaVkzhKWPtmyuv8Xydk7rpaj
Privkey: 5KbkRFD4BTNSxf89onL7VzknU7JGuYo8RPQCa7tJjJsDyGrXPQ4
Pattern: 1Loyce                                                                
Address: 1LoyceX7fCsefFegeLdmJZwFJGgizMKEyW
Privkey: 5KV2qY9nwJjLQWW1GeehDKdnkjjRtEQNXsjCRHRnKHKFsLSaNof
Pattern: 1Loyce                                                                
Address: 1LoyceV1q21LhFcb1cb3umhg9eCF6y43Fb
Privkey: 5JyowwHeKAvf6CM1zcQbW61TPoFUU5RofSCfdJQxwsbFzrzMLaf

Is this what you were looking for?


I've only tested the Linux version:
Code:
./vanitygen -o output.txt -f pattern.txt -k

And how to 2 video cards run (oclvanitygen), tried -D 0:0 -D 1:0 dont work. The comma also does not work -D 0:0,1:0.

-D 1:1 in oclvanitygen Launches cpu.

My pattern.txt contains this:
Code:
1naturefirst
1LionKing
1LionKingJungle
1Jumanji
1Robotworld
1android
1fishboat
1ant

my code
Code:
vanitygen.exe -k -f pattern.txt -o match.txt

I use windows system to run the program all are working good , but it not give a output match

if I give only 1ant pattern more output on the output file , i think its not find the match in the entire given file (all pattern in the file), it search only one pattern at a time , it search first or last pattern only in the list of given pattern file.

need any match in the given list of pattern to out , because my laptop generate 75Kk/s , if i give a 10 pattern  any match found on that 75 Kk/s generated address that gets out, so the time is reduce

Thank all

Several things are wrong with your approach:
1LionKingJungle is a duplicate of 1LionKing, if it searches for the first, it includes the longer version too.
1Robotworld isn't possible, you should replace the the "l" by an uppercase: "L".

At 75 kkeys/s, it's virtually impossible to find any of the longer addresses.
When testing how long it would take to find an address, you should omit "1ant". Without the short address you'll get a realistic estimate for the next match.

One more thing: play around with the case insentive switch, you'll have much more matches.

Looks like someone was able to claim the coins.

Tried the newer ACM wallet for my other coins and the privkey imported just fine, not sure what changes were made. anyways all good. enjoy the 43k coins whomever got them! trades at bitfex and tradeogre now for ~2k sats, thats like 0.8 btc worth of ACM you got if ya hodled.

Hi,

Actinium developer here. Smiley

We have changed the prefixes for private keys between versions. Simply install the latest version (0.16.1.0) and then start the Wallet-Application (or Daemon) with option -upgradewallet to upgrade to the latest wallet version.

Regarding vanity key generators, please take into account that some of them assume certain numerical distances between public & private keys (128 numbers).
 
This was not the case with Actinium in the beginning (and several other cryptocurrencies as well). Or more specifically: the variant of the wallet that preceded Actinium, which had a different name, wasn't following this pattern. But the new versions do follow it.

I have provided a Pull Request to one of such projects named vanitygen plus. The change was accepted by their team, so please check out their releases. They might have released a new version which supports Actinium by default. If not, then you'll have to clone & compile their code from GitHub. Check their compilation docs for more info on this.

Here their repo:

https://github.com/exploitagency/vanitygen-plus

Here the pull request for Actinium:

https://github.com/exploitagency/vanitygen-plus/pull/113

To generate an valid Actinium address you can now use these flags:

vanitygen -C ACM N

You won't need to provide numbers anymore as the app will automatically set them for you.

There are also additional flags, for compressed & uncompresses privkeys, scriptkey-hashes etc.

I hope this could help you solve the problems with Actinium's address generation. In general: the keys aren't lost, but only the parsing of underlying numbers that constitute them has changed.

For further support you can join our Discord (channel #support). Welcome!

Hi,

Actinium developer here. Smiley



Hey Brak thanks for the hard work! I was able to salvage half my mined coins the other half (in the privkey i posted above as a bounty) were snapped up by someone else. Hopefully they join and help the community Smiley take care!

Many thanks for your kind words and sorry for any inconvenience, but we have no influence over those external tools. At least the one project I mentioned above now officially supports Actinium.

And I too hope that our little community will soon get more members. We hope that our transparency will attract people who are into crypto not only because of quick gains. Making money is ok and we want our users to become wealthier, but ideally they should also stay with us! Smiley

We're currently waiting for Ledger HQ's response regarding our Ledger Nano Integration.

Let's hope the best!

Best regards,

Sorry to insist, but are you sure? How do compressed private keys (introduced in bitcoind/bitcoin-qt 0.6.0) fit in there? From what I've been able to read, vanitygen doesn't support them and they are actually separate from noncompressed keys (ie, can't be expressed as normal uncompressed base58 keys) - so what proportion of the 2^256 search range do they represent? Or am I totally misunderstanding compressed keys?

Yes you are misunderstanding the compressed keys.

Uncompressed key is a pair of (X,Y) EC point coordinates prefixed with 04.

Compressed key is just X coordinate of the same point prefixed with 03 if Y is odd or 02 if it is even.

Then the key is hashed as: ripemd160(sha256()), which gives you a (bitcoin) address.

You can actually hash a string of any length, so it is not evident what do you mean by "can't be expressed as ...".

This tool is quite amazing.

The thing i don't understand is how is even possible to get an address with a pattern we want. I didn't read into the code yet (i see is quite complicated) but, aren't private keys of two address wich differ  just by these chars occuring in the same position *piggy* or *piggp* completely different? So how is it finding those patterns so relatively fast?

If was already answered somewhere please point me to the answer, thanks.

EDIT: found some good explanation with some more details in here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Vanitygen

Hi

I don't understand what the -Z option does ?

-Z <prefix>   Private key prefix in hex (vipco.in)

is it related to mining vipcoins?

Also I have question:
When vanitygen  generates a coin  address matching a <pattern>,  is it possible to limit the search within a certain range and not  the full
 256bit range of the private key ?

Any thoughts?

 Thanks for sharing.

hey,

found this project today and tried it out.
so i ran vanitygen on the pattern "1", expecting it would write every address it generates to the out-file, what it did.

but when i tried oclvanitygen, it creates masses of addresses, but writes only very few (1 per second) to the out-file.
Whats wrong?
