That is NOT what I explained, two different private keys will never link to a single address.

Wrong, there are 2^256 possible private key permutation, but there are only 2^160 possible address permutation.
Even though i never see any cases where 2 different private keys leads to same address, it's possible since there's less possible address permutation than possible private key permutation.

If my calculation is right, 1 address has about 2^96 corresponding private key.

But two different scripts can and have on several occasions generated identical private keys that have been tied to already used, and in some cases wallets with balances.

Only applies if the script uses weak random algorithm/function. Wallet these days use more random algorithm/function which is cryptography secure.


Also not true, BTC addresses can and do vary in length. There will never be two private keys that match the same address.

e.g

Two Valid addresses {

15PLdWhPDFCyAwMF78SebDAeRRMva8Tgop

1SArTJ5PBwq69x9NHdpGVcBqv9eCmYcYg

}
Also it is no more likely to crack a weak private key than a 'strong' private key through 'RANDOM PRIVATE KEY' generation, not brute forcing. We are not speaking about brute force attacks.

The point isn't to brute force in attempting to crack a single address, it's to use an algorithm that generates random private keys and the possibility is still there that on the very first try the key can be one that is tied to a large bitcoin address. I've done it and am doing it and have generated some addresses that match with already created addresses that have been used and a couple that have had small balances in them so it's not like it never happens. The only thing that makes it not so noteworthy is that it hasn't been tied to an account with 50+ btc or something, but the odds that I and others even reached one with an already used balance proves that private key collision is a common occurrence even given the trillions to 1 odds.

I find this really hard to believe, especially since you imply it's happened more than once. Are you generating truly random numbers, between 0 and 2^256? There's (almost) no way you could coincidentally generate a random private key which matches a funded address. Can you provide proof by showing the addresses and a signed message?

Here's a random private key generator. Feed the output to brainflayer -x -t priv, or a suitable tool that takes a raw private key.

Code:
// output random hex digits as a 256 bit priv key

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdint.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/time.h>

uint64_t timeuseconds() {
        struct  timeval thistime;

        gettimeofday(&thistime, NULL);
        return((thistime.tv_sec * 1000000) + (thistime.tv_usec % 1000000));
}

int main() {

        int i;

        srandom(timeuseconds() );

        while (1)
        {
                for (i = 0; i < 16; i++)
                {
                        printf("%04lx", random() & 0xffff);  /* not cryptographically secure */
                }
                printf("\n");
        }
}

It's now May 1 2019, anybody still hunting BTC private keys?
Yeah I even seen pools that use miners to brute force private keys  Grin

Any Hunter here. I saw a lot of good hunter here. I am just using a lottery system. Like Keys.lol / Privatekeys.pw and thegalacticlottery I don't know some coding that's why I only use this website. 3 days of hunting and still nothing. Open about 60 browser in my pc and 40 browser in my laptop running with script to auto refresh and if it read an transaction it auto stop with message and alarm. but thegalacticlottery I only open 1 browser in my pc and laptop. and while searching for browser I use my PC to play games Cheesy only the laptop is wasting energy.

So whats your conclusion? Searching for wallets that do have balance is pretty hard eh?

Yeah It is 4th day now. and still running Cheesy but it's okay I just leave it like this. Because I always use my pc.

You're really just wasting electricity. Even if your computer was able to search a thousand or a million times faster, the chances of ever finding a match within your lifetime are effectively zero. You'd have more chance of winning a (real world) lottery.

Is it possible to find addresses with balances or (more likely) which have had balances in the past? Yes: look up SHA256 brain wallets, broken key generator code, deliberately weak keys, user mistakes, etc.

Can you find them by generating random keys via a website? No. (The code I posted above generates random keys - it was meant to be a joke. Smiley )

if you want to waste electricity and lower the lifespan of your computer hardware by putting a lot of continued pressure on them then  at least start mining altcoins! that way you can at least earn something for real instead of wasting your time on something that obviously not going to work not just in a couple of days or years or decades,... it won't work for a million years!

Why don't you try to find the next Bitcoin block? There's an instant 12.5 BTC reward waiting for you!
The chances of finding it with your computer are of course practically zero, as ASICS made GPU mining useless years ago, but it's still much more likely than finding a random private key.

Lol I mess around with Keys.lol for like 1 hour one time. I stumbled upon it by accident. I would have to say, In the little time that I have tinkered around with it. I would have to say it IS PRETTY HARD LMAO,

From the math I have read here it's probably not even worth the time. lol

The program that I posted here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4345245.msg51294948#msg51294948 will, when paired with brainflayer, search random private keys at a rate of about 120,000 Bitcoin keys per second on a single i7 core. That's just over 10 billion per day.

The chances of ever finding a match for a random 256 bit key, even when checking 10 billion keys a day, even if you're using multiple cores to double/triple/quadruple etc that rate, even if you're using a GPU assisted program that focuses on a small set of addresses and runs at 500 times that rate, is still virtually zero.

It's absolutely not worth the time.

check out my profile

the thing you are trying to sell seems to be only working for that puzzle transaction and when you have the public key not in general which is the case of the comment you quoted and also is the general theme of this topic. not to mention that OP started this topic mainly as a brainwallet stealer!
