I got scammed out of my bitcoin. I have located the Bitcoin address where the ass hat is holding all of his/her/their coins. Its in excess of ~700btc. I would like to find a way to crack his the public key for the private key and then donate the coinage to ~700 random peeps in this community. I did not loose a lot but I'm way more talented that rich. And I have access to a server farm (in which I have permission to use unused resources - greater than 100 machines).

IF anyone has attempted this before, it would be greatly appreciated. There is a TON of into out there but I cannot decipher what is the correct method to use.

Unless the attacker used brainwallet with a weak passphrase, a weak online wallet that is willing to cooperate or a bugged wallet with a flawed RNG, this cannot be done...
Sorry.

Quite simple: if anybody with a botnet of a couple hundred/thousand PC's was able to brute force any private key that results in a certain public key whose hash (the address) has been funded with a couple BTC, bitcoin would have been worthless by now, since in this case the security concept would have been flawed. The address space is 2^160, the private keyspace 2^256. It's basically impossible to bruteforce these keyspaces... It might sound like this is possible because the human mind just isn't capable of imagining the mere concept of numbers this big, in reality it is impossible.

I realise this isn't what you wanted to hear, but this is the reality. Sorry for you loss.

I am sorry for your loss. But I think its impossible to breach into his wallet. But you can investigate who is this person and help the community by posting his identity as a scam.

In the history of Bitcoin, nobody has ever been able to do that. You can add all the hashing power of all the Bitcoin farms in

the world together to try and Bruteforce a private key for a Bitcoin address and you would never solve that. The electricity

cost to do that would quickly absorb all the benefits of doing this, so it is a futile attempt. Sorry bud, write off the loss and

move on, because you not going to get your money back.  Sad  The claims that people are doing this is false.  Angry

Breaking a symmetric 256-bit key by brute force requires 2128 times more computational power than a 128-bit key. Fifty

supercomputers that could check a billion billion (1018) AES keys per second (if such a device could ever be made) would, in

theory, require about 3×1051 years to exhaust the 256-bit key space.

Too bad you also lack knowledge about bitcoin.
A server farm is useless, two server farms are useless, you will need computing power that doesn't exist on this planet to do that.
And even if it would, nobody would lend it to you for 700 BTC let alone for nothing.


then donate the coinage to ~700 random peeps in this community.

Rather than thinking about that, unless of course your not trolling since you're a newbie with a single post, you could always tell us how you got scammed and maybe prevent others from falling to the same scam.

A new account claiming to have had 700 btc, but probably doesn't know enough hence getting scammed (assuming what you're saying is actually true). Also, thinking you could do bad things with only 100+ miners. You're going to need a lot more than that. Yeah sure 700 btc.

Um, so you are telling everyone on an open, public forum about your plans to commit a crime?

And a bunch of asshats are giving you advice on how to do it, becoming implicit in that crime?

You claim to be very talented and have a lot of resources at your disposal, but you don't know what to do and ask a bunch of strangers on bitcointalk for help?

Yeah, this screams of a fake post for attention or if it genuine, an incredibly immature, impulsive, reckless and flat out stupid individual.

Stuff gets stolen.  It sucks but it happens.
Wanting to go steal from teh person who stole from you is a natural instinct, but to follow through on that and make plans is petty and won't bring about any kind of satifsfaction, just more stress and frustration.

Next time, why don't you try securing your btc better?
If you do it right, than the chances of having your btc stolen become quite literally 0%.

Im sorry for your loss. But i really hope it is impossible to break into this persons wallet.

This would be very bad for bitcoin in general if that would be possible.

I hope the btc will flow back your way in another way.

i think its impossible for you or for everybody to do that, everybody has their respinsibility for their own wallet security, you are not the only one who got a problem like this,  i had also has a bad experience just like you, i couldnt do anything except to let it go, start it again from zero and more carefully in the future in the best choice that you can do

Tough luck for you dude. No way anyone could tap into an anonymous wallet and I don't think if there'd be such, that they'd post the information in a public forum. Of course nasty people can use that same information to hack into innocent people's wallets right? And i'm sure there's no way for that now. It's a lesson learned the hard way, if that's what actually happened at all in the first place.

Yes, I was being stupid in all accounts above...

Arbitragecoins.com is the scam site.

Why the hell did I send coin to that site? It was because of all the hype on the Arbitrage Bot: https://www.arbitraging.co
FOMO got the best of me and I was dumb.

He claims his coins went to a deposit address containing 700 BTC not that all were his funds. And not that it matters that much.... Smiley

Seems like Arbitrage is the new Ponzi...
Just yesterday I saw another Ico Scam with this kind of activity

Did you see this?
Risk Free Trade

When something advertises risk-free money, it's an obvious scam, why the hell would somebody need money when they know the bulletproof way to make money?

This should be a lesson for everybody that still falls for those scams.

Ps, you should open a topic in Scam Acusations with all the datails, maybe it will prevent further incidents.

It might sound like this is possible because the human mind just isn't capable of imagining the mere concept of numbers this big, in reality it is impossible.


Human mind is definitely capable of comprehending very big / very small numbers with proper training, it's just that most people never really thought about those numbers. For average joe "big number" is a billion or a trillion, so when they hear that you can technically bruteforce a crypto key, they think that there's a chance like in winning a lottery, and some even try to bruteforce something or mine Bitcoin with their CPU. We should just explain to them that those chances are actually like winning a lottery billions of billions of times in a row, this number is so close to zero that for any practical purposes is should be treated as zero.

You cannot crack the private key of the scammer! I am very sorry for your loss, if its possible then no one in the world would be talking about Bitcoin as a store of value ( because it can be stolen ). However some think that quantum computers may one day be advanced enough to crack such keys. Any ways at this time they are at their formative stages. The most sensible thing that you can do is move on with your life and investing strategies also paying more attention to securing your crypto wealth!

I am sad for your misfortune. Be that as it may, I think it’s difficult to rupture into his wallet. However, you can examine who is this individual and help the network by posting his way of life as a trick. Moreover you should be very careful in the next time.
