If you want to be cooler than everyone else and have an address like: 1Garr2555P4oiAaLQqXkcdAKGg4SMt3RZS
Or any other alphanumeric string between the 1 and the rest of the jumble.
I am offering to dedicate my mining rig to finding you that key, for a fee, of course!
I charge based upon how many characters of customization you want. 1xxx(jumble) is three characters.
1-5 characters = 1 coin Estimated completion time: 1 second -1 hour
6 characters = 2 coins 1 day
7 characters = 5 coins 1-2 days
8 characters = 50 coins 1 week -2 months
As you can see, the difficulty to find a specific key rises exponentially, and so does the price!
The time it takes to find an address also depends on "luck" and complexity. If I feel like I'm robbing you or being robbed I will adjust the price accordingly. You will have a quote within minutes of me starting the search for keys.
This is because Vanitygen is, in fact, a cryptographic bruteforcing tool.
Yes, I will be handling your private key, and yes, there is some degree of risk involved in that. I will be happy to encrypt your key in any (practical) way you like before sending it to you.
As always, I'm open to questions, comments, and especially criticism!
