Easy. just count through all the possible keys and see which one matches. Are you in a hurry?  Grin
There is not enough energy and time in the universe do actually pull it off Smiley

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Yes, there is. It's possible. It's just very unlikely.

It would be good as one of those old age hobbies you're never meant to complete.

I agree with this. We need to make 1BTC worth 100USD. Now.

Do that and then there will be no buying interest on BTC due to price  Undecided

People would simply buy smaller chunks of bitcoins at a time.

milliBTC (=0.001BTC) would become very popular though. No problem Smiley

Well, there's always finding keys of lost addresses. . .Then lost Bitcoins could actually come back . . .
You're making a joke, right?

Seriously though, you're joking, right?

Addresses are 160 bit.
If you have a 1-Trillion-Trillion core computer and each core can check 1 Billion addresses per second, you have to keep counting for a 50 Million years to have a reasonable chance to get a valid private key. Good luck!

Oh look, how cute! A brand new little troll who can't even get his inflammatory story straight.

Really it would be more like Lucy working at the candy factory instead of your pie analogy. Every ten minutes or so, another 50 pieces of candy come right down that conveyor belt, and you can stuff about... what? Five each week into you mouth? Your efforts are less than trivial, all you have managed to do is burn up roughly $50 worth of electricity to waste $30 worth of abstract tokens of floating value. Good on you, Mister CoinsAreGone Avenger Boy. Living the good life and striking a blow for humanity by wasting your time, your company's resources, and the very air you breathe by respiration.

Proof that the gene pool has a shallow end, and you are sitting there messing yourself, gloating about your inflated sense of self-worth. Keep on destroying tootweasel, you mean less than nothing to the world.

And you might want to get your unemployment benefits statement ready... the last fuck-wit who bragged about using company resources to mine, FTW, ended up getting gently doxxed into oblivion and joblessness. I expect someone will be along to sweep you out with the rest of the rubbish on the floor shortly.

Are we ever going to know how many are lost? How?
