ThePiachu,

I'm not sure how much you are actively maintaining this project, but any chance you could update the "Solved work" page to include a "Solved on Date" column or similar? I'd also like to see a "Requested on Date" column on the available work page if possible.

It would be nice to be able to look at dates to see if there are recent requests or solved work to monitor the recent activity of the pool.

An example (available from gobittest website):
We have a private key:
18E14A7B6A307F426A94F8114701E7C8E774E7F9A47E2C2035DB29A206321725
which maps to public key:
0450863AD64A87AE8A2FE83C1AF1A8403CB53F53E486D8511DAD8A04887E5B23522CD470243453A 299FA9E77237716103ABC11A1DF38855ED6F2EE187E9C582BA6

and say we want to find a pattern "166". One of the solutions takes a form of a private key
B18427B169E86DE681A1A62588E1D02AE4A7E83C1B413849989A76282A7B562F
mapping to public key:
049C95E0949E397FACCECF0FE8EAD247E6FD082717E4A4A876049FB34A9ADED110DFEA2EF691CC4 A1410498F4C312F3A94318CD5B6F0E8E92051064876751C8404

If we add the two public keys (like the person looking for the solution would do), we get a public key:
0436970CE32E14DC06AC50217CDCF53E628B32810707080D6848D9C8D4BE9FE461E100E705CCA98 54436A1283210CCEFBB6B16CB9A86B009488922A8F302A27487
which is equivalent to this address:
166ev9JXn2rFqiPSQAwM7qJYpNL1JrNf3h

If we add the two private keys (like the person requesting the address would), we get:
CA65722CD418ED28EC369E36CFE3B7F3CC1CD035BFBF6469CE759FCA30AD6D54
which maps to the same public key as the sum of the public keys, and thus - to the same address.

I got a bunch of old GPUs that can't mine any of the current profitable coins such as ZEC or ETH.

Wondering if any of the work available at:
https://vanitypool.appspot.com/availableWork


Still will pay out if a solution is found. For example,
1qwertyuiop

Pays 1.2 BTC however the guy was looking for this vanity key since 2013.


EDIT: Nevermind, didn't know the results had to be case sentitive, in that case it would take millions of years to find a result.

.FORTUNE.JACK.

Is it possible to merge-mine vanity addresses?
Each user enters a pattern and a public key, for example:
User Alice sends pattern "1alice" and public key a1 (private key is A1).
User Bob sends pattern "1bob" and public key b1 (private key is B1).
User Charlie sends pattern "1charlie" and a public key c1 (private key is C1).
Now the miners begin hashing, combining all the public keys together, adding arbitrary keys, hashing and comparing each hash to all the provided patterns.
Assume they find a solution for Bob first:
Hash160(a1+b1+c1+x1)=1bob...
Now, Alice and Charlie publish their private keys A1 and C1, and the miner publishes X1 (the private key that generates x1).
Now, Bob combines A1, B1, C1, and X1 to create his private key, and no one else can do this because only Bob has B1.
Bob now has a vanity address which fits his pattern, and goes offline.
Now, Alice and Charlie generate new key pairs, and send the public keys:
Alice sends a2 (private key is A2).
Charlie sends c2 (private key is C2).
Now the pool continues hashing, combining the two keys, hashing, and comparing each hash to both provided patterns, until they find a hash that fits 1alice or 1charlie.
When this happens, the same thing happens again, one user (probably Charlie) publishes the private key, and the other gets control over the new address.
The main problem I see is that a user can refuse to publish the private key after an address is found for someone else, wasting all the mining effort.
Can this problem be overcome?

If you don't have sole and complete control over the private keys, you don't have any bitcoin!  Signature campaigns are OK, zero tolorance for spam!

The Vanity Pool sends payments with quite low fees due to the network requiring higher fees now. A recent payment used 44.444 sat/byte.

Any possibility in bumping up the fee a bit to make confirmations faster for these transactions?

 mean INVEST... like if you've solved this problem, someone needs to be throwing money at you to buy hardware and further develop this proprietary software for a promise in sharing future profits. Maybe I'm wrong, but I see a big demand for this kind of service as Bitcoin awareness spreads.

It is already live and has been working for quite some time. You can use this to get a vanity address right now Smiley

Good day!

I've seen this wallet address from the list of my referrals in a faucet, look at the last 3 character: 3GZLKxx7SgYkUXarSRNULxjxRQf4P3DAY3

I thought the addresses only starting in 1 can be generated for vanity address, isn't that a multi-sig address? If that is possible, how?

afaik before you base58encode it, instead of 0x00 at the beginning, you start with a 0x05 (prefix/version number)
this results in a leading 3 address
e.g.
05.payload.checksum -> base58encode -> 3.....
00.payload.checksum -> base58encode -> 1.....

Thanks for the explanation. But I'm still having trouble understanding codes regarding addresses.
Can I just do that using the vanity miner?

Yes it is possible.

Here's the command to generate a vanity address with the "3Love" prefix:

./vanitygen -F script 3Love

i hv hardware rnd generator i can use it on vanitygen ? if i can how use it ? add rand bit's how seed ? Or what need do for vanity gen use my rnd bit's
my rng gen bit's entropy

Entropy = 7.999506 bits per byte.

Optimum compression would reduce the size
of this 333348 byte file by 0 percent.

Chi square distribution for 333348 samples is 227.67, and randomly
would exceed this value 89.00 percent of the times.

Arithmetic mean value of data bytes is 127.4296 (127.5 = random).
Monte Carlo value for Pi is 3.143309694 (error 0.05 percent).
Serial correlation coefficient is -0.001518 (totally uncorrelated = 0.0).

Vanitygen includes the -s option which allows you to seed the random number generator from a file on the system. If your hardware random number generator can be accessed via a file, you should be able to use it like this.

That is the whole purpose of the program. It will provide you with a private key for an address with the pattern you provide.

If you are asking if it can find a private key for an entire specific address, then the answer is yes but it would take so long that there is no way you would be successful.

how work -s , it pick all bits how one seed , or how it pick them ?  How match it pick  bit's for 1 generation , i dont understand this
here is example of hardware gen numbers output. It's generate random bit's. But how vanitygen use them?

The -s option would be the path to a file that contains the output of the hardware device. On linux, for example, this might be /dev/hardwaredevice or whatever the path to your device is. Not sure exactly how this would work on Windows though.

Are vanity addresses still a thing?  Could I make a few Satoshi generating addresses?  There are not many good bounties there and the amounts are a little low for the compute to try and find them.

Doesn't seem worth it, although if you already have the equipment...

I just generated 1hack...

Takes about a month for me to get to probability ~50% for generating interesting addresses like 1bitcoin[...] and 1satoshi[...]

You need to use OCLvanitygen and use a decent GPU to get better speeds if you are not already.

With the increased price of bitcoin and the fees on the network, it doesn't seem as many people are interested in vanity addresses. There are still some in the pool but the reward to challenge ratio doesn't make them that appealing.

I figured that might be the case.  I'm getting a not so great 12Mkey/sec.

So that's why the reward is only just above 1.5 BTC for the prefix "qwertyuio"?  Would have expected at least  0.5 BTC for prefixes of length >= 6 with difficulties well over 10,000,000,000.
