If you were to have to generate 1000 Bitcoin Addresses which approach would you take?

Can 1000 addresses be stored in one wallet?



I'm trying to implement the Merchant Lazy API

You can go to this website and it will generate as many public/private key pairs as you want/need:  bitaddress.org

Just use the bulk address option, set the number of rows to 1000 and it will generate a CSV file with 1000 addresses and their corresponding private keys.  All the private key generation takes place on your computer, not on the server, so with some care your private keys are secure.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

cool, haven't seen that site before.

if it's truly only done on your local machine, then you should be able to save that page full of javascript and run it offline, yes?

Just go to the page which will load the script.  Disconnect from the network.  Run the script.  Make address pairs to your hearts conntent.  Save all the files in a secure location.  Reconnect to the evil internet.  Of course you must be aware of any key loggers, etc.

well yes you could do that. although i was thinking more of transporting the javascript via USB to some '100% offline' machine.

anyway, awesome site, is it yours?

mrb: in the past (in older versions), i've found that method hanging bitcoind after 1 or 2 hundred. haven't tried with newer versions.

No, but the guy did a great job and I sent him a small donation.

Yes, that's the recommended approach. And verify the SHA-1 hash of the file.

Thanx, I almost skipped that.


What happens if I generate 1000 addresses and my key pool is of only 100 addresses? Key Pool is automatically increased?


They should make a command to automatically generate multiple addresses.

Just to make sure you are understanding how the client works:
 - When you click "New" the client is grabbing an address from the key pool and, if necessary, subsequently generating a new address (that you don't yet see) to bring the keypool back to its target size.  So yes, the KeyPool is replenished each time you click New.

So the wallet holds all addresses including the "used" ones given to you when you clicked "new" and also all the "unused" ones from the key pool.  And just to clarify ... I'm referring to an address as "used" not necessarily to mean that it has been used in a transaction but instead just that it is no longer an "unused" address in the key pool.

Ok so the wallet holds all the old address + 100 (key pool).


Right?>

Using the defaults, correct.  The size of the keypool can be specified with a command line argument.
