just out of curiosity is this pool still up and running?

Yes, it's running and it has over 7.5BTC in bounties ready to be collected Smiley.

Im using ./oclvanityminer now and im getting
Code:
Searching for pattern: "1UnnDunn" Reward: 0.036000 Value: 0.000001 BTC/Gkey

Is this ok? Shouldn't I be getting all the patterns requested by "04C13D9C.." for example.. ? The sum is greater than 0.036...

I guess it's just a convenient way of displaying it, rather than listing all patterns beings searched for.

Here is the way I'm vanity mining now, searching for 11 rewards using my GPU. I find the public key part with the most rewards pending (from https://vanitypool.appspot.com/availableWork and https://vanitypool.appspot.com/getWork), with at least one reward that is not insanely difficult, which turns out to be:

04C13D...

Then I put all the requested patterns linked to this key part into a file called patterns.txt, one line each, in the same folder as the oclvanitygen executable.

now I run this script:

    #!/bin/bash
    cd /path/to/vanitygen/
    rm *.oclbin
    now=`date +"%m_%d_%Y"`
    outputFile="Solution_$now.txt"
    ./oclvanitygen \
        -D 0:1,grid=1024x1024 \
        -P 04C13D... \
        -f patterns.txt \
        -o $outputFile \
        -k

It appears that the -P option does not show up when you type ./oclvanitygen -help, but it is supported in the code, so hopefully when / if it finds a solution, it will be a valid key part and I'll get one of the rewards. A script to do this automatically should be easy enough to generate, not sure what went wrong with "oclvanityminer".



I have added the ability to dump the pub key when using verbose mode:
https://github.com/nicoschtein/vanitygen/tree/dump-pubkey
Check it out for debugging purposes !

Current prices look a bit off to me? On my Nvidia GTX 480, it'll take me just over 18 days for 50% probability, for an 8 digit vanity address. Yet, if I was mining on it, I'd be making 0.0001 BTC per day, it'd take me 227 years to mine the 8.3 BTC payout, and that's assuming difficulty stayed the same. Am I missing something?

Hmm, with the current block mining difficulty spike, I guess you might not be far off with how many times vanity mining is more profitable. The thing is, you also have to look at LTC mining and see how much money that can make you.

I would like to know how exactly people who generate keys are paid out in this pool. Do all people who worked on a certain bounty get part of the spoils when it is finished? Or only the person that completed it? Or is there another, more intricate system, that is used to determine who gets paid how much?

What exactly do 'Value' and 'Reward' mean?

Thank you for your time,

Winner takes all. I know shares would lower the reward variance, but implementing that would take too much of my time that is lacking at the moment.

I think Reward is the total bounty on an address, Value is Reward divided by how difficult it is to mine. You generally want to be working on bounties with bigger Values, even if their Rewards are smaller, unless you believe in your luck.

On the solved work page I'd like to see columns date/time started and finished.

What's your hash rate and what estimate did it show?

You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

I'm still confused... Is there a way to search for all available work at once even though there are different part public keys? I understand making a simple bat and text to search for ones with the same part public key but there has to be a way to search for multiple part public keys at the same time....

Ideally there should be a one time command line that searches for all available work at the same time whilst listing your Bitcoin address and once you solve one it pays out automatically.  If this already exists please shoot a example oclvanitygen line that does this.

20Kkeys x 10 rigs  Grin

Plus 4Mkeys x 2 cards

I don't look at the estimates.  So far this is the only thing profitable I have found for spare cycles and a 3.8Khash nvidia rig. 

All of which refuses to find 1Unicorn  mostly because of the length and the U at the beginning.

@miaviator

Then you were pretty lucky, indeed.

My AMD 5770 crunches about 15.5 MKeys/s and, oh yeah, once I was lucky too on the vanity pool. It made me happy to see that something unusual happened that day. Always a nice surprise.

Unfortunately most work is way out of near reach and heavily underpaid for the amount of work needed to find a solution. Sure, with a tremendous amount of luck it might work out, but you can't rely on that.

When I'm in the right mood and bored of other mining, I'll point oclvanitymine @ the pool and hope for some lucky day.  Grin

The Vanity Address DAC mines blocks into existence by finding vanity names.
Names are processed on a highest Bid basis and the entire hash power of the network is directed toward finding Vanity addresses for users.

PS Screw you 1aantonop

I think I'm going to stop using the pool until this address goes away. 

I'll work on 1Unicorn for a bit.

Is there any other vanity pools? (I couldn't find any other) Or this is only one? If there are multiple ones, which one would be most profitable? ie. with most rewards and easiest addresses.

I think someone did set up some other pool, but to the best of my knowledge this is the only pool that has any traffic. It's a small niche market.

Yes looking aimlessly for "1aantonop" is absolutely niche.  Useless POS.

Could someone create a pool that can say not search for the same address until the end of time?

It's all supply and demand - if people aren't buying addresses, there is little work. If you want to get more mining work, try convincing people to get themselves a vanity address Wink.

I wish someone would make a decent tutorial online video on how to get a vanity address
any info I have found so far is sketchy at best. Huh
