Yes definitely smaller if you think it's too big- I haven't printed any to test but even my own program generates big notes.

Ubuntu font is a free download, give it a google.

What is the copyright/licensing on the art? If I wanted to use it an open source project would that be a problem? Is a vector version available somewhere that could be used for rendering at a different resolution? Thx.

The wallet art work is public domain. Look in Casascuis banknote thread for the link to the SVG and PSD.

Awesome job!

I have one minor request: can the Art be the default, and the checkbox be "Hide Art"?

Also, the Ubuntu font didn't come through on the PNG.  (The font dependency can be removed by converting the text to "outlines", essentially shapes, before doing the conversion... in Illustrator it's just right click and "convert to outlines"... not sure what it is in other tools).

If you can fix these two things and publish them at the bitaddress.org URL (at /, rather than /something), a 10 BTC silver round with free shipping is awaiting you! (your choice, plated or non.)  I will PM you a code and a link.

v1.8
https://www.bitaddress.org/bitaddress.org-v1.8-SHA1-97d52a44eeb261e2398e98e1eed2bd56b99c845a.html
 - Paper Wallet Tab: Art wallet is now the default.
 - Paper Wallet Tab: The PNG has been resized to fit better into physical wallets when printed.
 - Paper Wallet Tab: The PNG has been rendered using the Ubuntu font.


Looking forward to that shiny silver  Grin
Thanks for the fun project!

PM'd you code for free silver coin

I'm doing orders right now so if you order now it will be prepared right now

Thanks for the awesome work!

Have added a pull request for the Vanity Address Tab to Git:
https://github.com/pointbiz/bitaddress.org/pull/3

Any chance of someone to reviewing it?
Is trival, just 126 lines added and one changed.

I saw on github you are still making changes. I will consider adding your tab. Could you also merge with the newest version v1.7 ?

I'd like to give this Vanity Address thing a try... do you have a link that would guide me through the process?
Who do I contact to find the vanity address?

I have rebased to your latest version. Give it a try.

To test out download vanity generator from:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=25804.0

Then create a new key on the tab. Keep the private key safe.
Then run:
oclvanitygen.exe -P PUBLICKEYFROMABOVE 1prefix

This with after some time return a private key.
If you then put this private key and the one you originally generated into the bitaddress.org page it will then
generate the actual private key in WIF and confirm that the address is the one that starts with the prefix you want.

In a vanity pool someone else would run the oclvanitygen for you.

I can verify that the BitAddress.org website has been updated and returns the same HTML from the latest commit (31433898c7b984ff532bd8f24a286ba5e6426e1e) in github:
 - https://github.com/pointbiz/bitaddress.org


To confirm this I first check the sha1sum hash of the html returned by a request to http://bitaddress.org:

$ wget --quiet -O - http://bitaddress.org|sha1sum
97d52a44eeb261e2398e98e1eed2bd56b99c845a  -

Then from my bitaddress.org repo:

$ git pull
$ git rev-list --max-count=1 HEAD
31433898c7b984ff532bd8f24a286ba5e6426e1e

$ sha1sum bitaddress.org.html
97d52a44eeb261e2398e98e1eed2bd56b99c845a  bitaddress.org.html

Just started fooling around with testnet a bit for a project I have in mind...tried creating some addresses, but bitcoind (running on testnet) won't import the private keys generated by bitaddress.org.  Testnet private keys begin with 9, but the ones returned by bitaddress.org begin with 5 (same as for mainnet):



Likewise, the keys in my bitcoind wallet (or keys generated with vanitygen -T) can't be brought into bitaddress.org.

Huh I thought only the Bitcoin address was different for testnet. Thanks for letting me know.

Do you know what byte should be used for test net?

The wiki says the prefix should be 2 not 9 but it doesn't show an example.

The correlation to prefix depends on the length.  Different length, different set of prefixes.

If someone wants to post any testnet key, I can decode it and tell what bytes are in it.

Here's one I had vanitygen create a couple of minutes ago:

Address: mocupbVqze93jsSPnvmi1HWYQtP5gh6Bs9

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/List_of_address_prefixes

The wiki says the prefix should be 2 not 9 but it doesn't show an example.

I think that was my fault - sorry about that.  I calculated the leading symbol given the 'version' byte for 160 bit hashes, and then forgot that the testnet private key wasn't a 160 bit hash...  I just updated the wiki page.

Anyway, if you look at src/base58.h in the bitcoin source tree you'll see the version bytes for private keys are defined:

Code:
    void SetSecret(const CSecret& vchSecret, bool fCompressed)
    {
        [...]
        SetData(fTestNet ? 239 : 128, &vchSecret[0], vchSecret.size());
        [...]
    }

ie. the version byte is 239 for testnet, and 128 otherwise.

I just made 5 new testnet addresses in a new wallet and dumped their private keys:

Code:
chris@chris:~$ bc dumpprivkey mfqu6YriHRhQZUrqHT38oNyKZ6dLbzhF9y
cRxmHP4nkYKhvwdACAvkdi9RvrUsdWSGvajDr5UT91c2dQzdSXQD

cNJFgo1driFnPcBdBX8BrJrpxchBWXwXCvNH5SoSkdcF6JXXwHMm

Looks like the private key begins with a 'c'.  I also dumped the private keys of the 17 old addresses in my 'real' testnet wallet.  They all begin with 'c' too.  You'll notice too that testnet privkeys are 52 characters long, whereas realnet (?) ones are 51 characters long.

Here's reasoning to show why the testnet privkey will start with 'c':

The privkey is 33 bytes (if it's compressed, which it is by default?), and the checksum is 4 bytes.  That means the number we convert to base58 is between
  239*256**(33+4)
and
  240*256**(33+4)-1.

When we divide either of these numbers by 58**51 to get the 1st base58 character code, we get 35, which is the code for 'c':

>>> (239*256**(33+4)) / 58**51
35L
>>> (240*256**(33+4)-1) / 58**51
35L

Ah, that's an uncompressed key.  Those will begin with character code 8, which is '9', and will be only 51 characters long.

>>> (239*256**(32+4)) / 58**50
8L
>>> (240*256**(32+4)-1) / 58**50
8L

The hex for the first one, and then these five, is
Code:
EF 08 2A 55 D3 89 66 47 6B B9 8E 9C 6A 52 E1 12 B6 4C 19 93 80 46 6C AA 6D A7 2F 27 05 B9 F2 FB 7A

EF 87 29 9D 51 D9 76 AD F2 97 AE F1 E5 44 AF 71 28 9C 52 27 C9 3D F5 8A 2B CF 90 8E 93 C3 1C C0 2F 01
EF CF 7A B0 12 38 EE 02 C3 C1 4E 83 56 3B 66 C6 A9 79 6A 20 ED 79 C3 AA 22 DA 8F 34 33 23 84 41 CF 01
EF 02 3F 69 DF 19 7D 5B CA F2 74 A0 48 7B C7 10 B6 F4 B8 0B D3 3C 4D 9A E1 E6 F5 74 84 AA 02 BE A6 01
EF 15 60 49 6D 13 57 30 F5 A1 BB 39 58 0A BB A1 FE 8E A2 70 76 8A 08 C4 9A 66 73 27 72 B0 B8 11 E2 01

Based on what I know of other private keys, I'm going to guess that EF is always the prefix, and the extra 01 byte means compressed (which lengthens the code to 52).

It looks like uncompressed will always start with 9 (range: 91-93) and the compressed ones always start with c (range cM-cW)

I'm pleased to be able to present the following that I've done some work on.

I have pretty much copied the design but re-rendered everything myself, from scratch, in SVG format.  That is - natively - without converting a raster image.  As a result, the whole thing as SVG weighs in at under 250 KB.  I did this in Adobe Illustrator.



.ai, .png, .svg -> https://casascius.com/graphnote.zip

EDIT followup: updated the image to thicken the lines so they moire less on printers. made the right hand ones whiter
