I just sent BTC to an instawallet and the coins are not showing up!

Has something changed? I'm used to them showing up immediately and being spendable after 2 confirms.

Address is 12CcBCfRGPQQE5WQtSfBPRj5vBRCnNdoLC
Software glitch. Fixed now. You should see your coins  Smiley

couldn't someone just run a program to load all random urls until they find ones with coins in them and take the coins?

Yes, in the same way that someone could just try all the private/public keypairs and see which ones correspond to Bitcoin addresses with coins in them.

aka no (it would take longer than the universe will exist counting from when it started.)

Supercomputers

but generating just one address and checking for existence of bitcoins is multitudes easier than generating two addresses and checking

but maybe the website has a way of shutting down or blocking something with so many requests or couldn't even handle so many requests

Yes, crypto doesn't work "because supercomputers".

[CONFIRMED] instawallet got hacked!!!! AHHHH, get your lawyers lined up!!!

lol Smiley thanx for the great service. I have far too many BTC in instawallet regarding my general skepticism towards hosted wallets but instawallet is the best so far.
Do you know your up-time? I would guess it is >99.8%

I can't withdraw my funds but the tx has over 15 confirmations  Embarrassed hopefully this is just a glitch and they haven't been hacked.

You should now be able to withdraw your coins. And no, nothing was hacked Smiley

I love the new design of the home page. And the fact that it has NEVER been hacked.
Stephan, Arsy and davout you are doing a great job with Instawallet.

+1, yes, just saw the new InstaWallet site. Nice work.

 Incidentally, how many different, unsuccessful wallet requests from the same IP before the banhammer comes down?

This "metal detector" is a joke as stated by the most up-voted comment. Instawallet invites users to create thousands of wallets for whatever meaningful use with their api and a real metal detector would rather look for man-made wallets like https://www.instawallet.org/w/forAndrea or similar dictionary matches.

The banhammer is used only for maliciously crafted requests.

Software glitch. Fixed now. You should see your coins  Smiley

Again it seems Instawallet is not working properly.

When I tried to send bitcoins from instawallet to another bitcoin address I got the message: "We're sorry, but something went wrong."
The original amount is deducted from the instawallet address but it's not sent to the destination address Sad

I have already written to Instawallet support, as I have had this problem twice this weekend.

NOTE: Instawallet addresses were 1Bs2aH9a9Vu42bRFnQDyRKKqGx1By13DpU & 1E7grd8iRPeLjSBzXAA4peL4iHfCvv6gE6
