I can generate a vanity address for you - no problem.  BUT you do NOT want anyone to do this for you for the simple reason that if I, or anyone, generates the address for you then I/they will know your private key.  It is really not that hard to do yourself.  Just download the program and run it.  I can help you with setup questions and a regular expression for the program if you want me to.

BTW I own a lot of cool addresses including http://firstbits.com/1xyzzy  If you know what that means then you are older than dirt (like me).

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!

It truly is easier that almost anything, and depending on how detailed your vanity string is, you can produce it in minutes.

And the advice about private keys is really, really good. There are now four things you should never, ever trust anyone else with... your private keys, your tools, your sister's virtue, and your truck.

Allright, I may give the program another shot then.  It would be great if I could have some assistance and I'd gladly tip you.  I can't do it tonight though, I must sleep.

I had to google xyzzy, so I must confess my youth...   Tongue

perhaps not the place for this, but can this program generate entire specific addresses? i have 5btc still stuck in an old deepbit account that i stupidly locked the out address on and reinstalled my wallet....

Yeah, sure, it'll only take something like 4.55 hundred trillion trillion trillion centuries assuming a giant cluster of GPUs hashing away trying to match one specific address!

No.* If it could then that means Bitcoin is broken.   I mean forget your 5 BTC.  There are addresses with 10K BTC. Just generate that address and bingo  10K BTC richer.


* Technically it could however we would reach the heat death of the universe before you attempted even a billionth of 1% of possible keys and that is if you used a planetary sized super computer.  I find "no" the simpler albeit not exactly accurate answer.

Following Moores law, in 80 years, the amount of time to find a key with this part: '18ox2ACVt2hNd8gSmF9ayR9msVW' (7 characters missing) would take 5.78 Years.  To find the full key, would still be much, much longer..  Thought i'd throw some math out there lol...

Generally math involves math.  You can't say following mores law in 80 years I can do x with ... BLANK.  With an abacus?  With all the computing power on the planet?  With the matrix?  With a human turk consisting of all the children in China?

that makes sense, i figured it probably couldn't be done just for the reason of knowing a hella btc rich persons address so you can get at it. thanks for the answers though, figured it was worth asking Tongue

First, a public address is not the key you are looking for, it is the hash of the key.  So, if you ever did find a key pair that hashes to a certain address there is a chance that with all your efforts you end up with the wrong key pair.

Second, by too long we mean the following:

Here are some estimates for generating some addresses using just my laptop.  You can extrapolate to a faster system, even a GPU system or even 100,000 GPUs and see that it is “impossible”:

Code:
Exact pattern     Time
1           found 1HszrwReND62cBZUBZhqLTPKxAoSsANuxK instantly
12                found 12UpCienamnaM8Vw8pdTEFJ39Mth23CK3N instantly
123               found 123r9SzaKwgZF6xjit3Svs1jTU8TWitrcn instantly
1234              found 1234Ru7M2a6HHXpr5sE31n7TdgSTXcREen instantly
12345             found 12345RDRciJmSBywxSGTJSHYrvAr4xBVUH in about 30 seconds
123456            about 30 minutes
1234567           about 1.2 days
12345678          about 70 days
123456789         about 11 years
123456789a        about 640 years
123456789ab       over 36,000 years
123456789abc      over 2 million years
123456789abcd     over 100 million years
123456789abcde    over 7 billion years
123456789abcdef   over 400 billion years
123456789abcdefg  over 20 trillion years
123456789abcdefgh over 1 quadrillion years

From above you can kind see that it would take a “long” time to find a key pair that generates any one public address.

In fact the vanitygen program will not calculate how long it would take (too large) but to just get most of one (which does not get you the coins) here is the output from the program showing that you have a 50% chance of finding only most of one in 6e32 years:

C:\downloads\www.bitcoin.org>vanitygen 1LJY4ey9FVKKuodaDr84sdZDXLy
Difficulty: 2794725737275825531787289201741966674434639341
[102.98 Kkey/s][total 1497088][Prob 0.0%][50% in 5.965101e+032y]

I found just a few for you. I cut off the end of the addresses and keys, the addresses below is not enough to use them. If you want one, I can put the one(s) you want into a new wallet.dat and send it to you, or send you privkeys.

If you want to make your own and have a fast ATI card, you can use oclvanitygen. If you want to import the key you found into your unencrypted wallet, you can use pywallet (you must install Python too). Search will help you find these.

It's always fun to look at vanitygen results and see if something magical appeared, like 1markiopro

1.1 Ghash/s rig (3 instances of overclocked 5850s) would do 12345678 in about 2 hours compared to 70 days on a laptop CPU but it's still almost a week for 123456789 and almost a year for 123456879a.

I wonder who searched the longest for their address? :>
few hours is a maximum for me

I have seen a thread related to the most difficult vanity address found to date but I can't find it right now.

Several pages back on the Vanitygen topic.

My 1bitcoins is estimated 88.7 days @ 300Kkey/s (50% chance); etotheipi's unusual all-uppercase vanitygen was 70 days @ 300Kkey/s.

Just a reminder - if you are using GPU(s), set back you vram frequency to stock or even overclock, me speed increases by 1/3 between 265 MHz and 1100 MHz on a 5850.

what if quantum computing were to do the calculating? (suck it Moore's Law!) Imagine just 1 quantum computer hashing away!

I think they still need 'a bit' of more development to do that.

Anyways, anyone interested in buying an address starting with 1BitCoin or 1BiTcoin?  Grin

Shor's algorithm can't be used to speed up brute force attacks against Bitcoin addresses (which is what Vanity gen is except it accepts partial matches).  Satoshi was decades ahead of his time (or very lucky).    The "issue" or "strength" depending on how you look at it (quantum resistance) comes from the fact that we don't use public key & private key.  We use address which is a hash of the public key and private key.  If the public key is unknown shor's algorithm can't be used.
