I made a simple vanity address generator in Java, utilizing bitcoinj. (URL Removed, see Updates below.)

UPDATE: No more in-browser Java applet. Now strictly a downloadable desktop application.

UPDATE: As I have not maintained this application for some time, I feel it is best to remove it until I have time to update the code. Consider samr7's vanitygen.

Thanks for your interest! I hope to revisit this some day soon.

Interesting...

If you sped it up it would be great.

How about giving time estimates rather than things like "Hard", "brutal..."?

That would imply that I have any modesty. I lost that sensibility years ago and feel much better without it. Besides, it wasn't ridicule I was displaying, but my incredible thesaurusless vocabulary.  Cheesy

Thanks for having a look, everyone. This thread is pretty amusing.

If you sped it up it would be great.

I'm not really motivated to make this fast. My motivation was just to experiment (mainly with the BitCoinJ lib), and my design goal was simplicity. If you want fast, there are alternatives.

How about giving time estimates rather than things like "Hard", "brutal..."?

Because it's a random process (refer to the description for more details). You could put in a 16 character vanity word and find it in 2 seconds or 2 millennia. So, I came up with amusing names to suggest how unlikely you are to find a vanity word, based on length.

I found it humorous, too... As others pointed out, both my username and the site address match my vanity address. I actually had text on the page explaining this, but I cut it out because I thought it was obvious enough... (and I had already reached my quota of obvious statements).

Don't worry, I offer full absolution through Bitcoin donation!

I can't believe you figured out exactly what that stands for.

Anyway, I didn't know if anyone else would find this useful, but I wanted to put something up, since I'm enthralled with Bitcoin (and write Java applications). Now, to figure out a way to earn some BTC to experiment with...

Thanks for welcoming me to the community, by the way! I hope to have time to tinker with Bitcoin some more some day.

Gulp!

Okay! Here's my explanation, and I'm sticking to it. We, as a community, jab members we like, Nyhm. (damn, I hope he buys this story)

Seriously, I (now we) missed it. I (not we, unless...) was looking for the address to match the company's name, hence my post. I, at no time was dissing you or your company. Just making an observation. I'm glad to read that you're a good-nature fellow. The site look swell, BTW.

Oh, hey, no problem, but I do appreciate you taking the time to follow up, Phinnaeus Gage. No offense taken at all.

Nyhm is just my pseudonym I use for games and such, and nyhm.net is just my personal playground for experimenting and whatnot. I'm very open to input and discussion, and it's fine to let me know what you think. I'm excited to have some humble offering to put out there for the Bitcoin community, and maybe some will appreciate some part of it.

My motivation right now is just to tinker when I can, and get familiar with the community. Bitcoin might be the most interesting software/technology I've encountered since the Internet itself. Eventually, I could see myself focusing my entire career toward Bitcoin-related software development... but that's tomorrow. Today, my time is entirely consumed developing/releasing/operating Island Forge, which has nothing (yet?) to do with Bitcoin. (Also see my lofty-sounding Potential Games Bitcoin Initiative)... but I digress.

I'm glad to make everyone's acquaintance, and any further discussion of the vanity generator is most welcome.

Boy, did I screw up big time! I just realized that the name of your site is the same as your moniker and IS in the vanity address. My eyesight is getting worse, I believe. And my mind. Before penning my first post, I even double checked the facts: http://nyhm.net and 1NYhM2pzT6PDfZyXbyFm3dVcoob4phrGc5 have nothing in common. What a fucking idiot I am.

Released new version (v0.2) of the applet!

  • Case sensitive option
  • Any position option
  • Watch as literally dozens of addresses per second are computed!

Yes, it's still slow, but my motivation is experimentation. See the page for details.

Thanks for your interest and feedback!
