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.

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.

Yeah, most of the requests that are currently in the pool have been there for quite some time and are very difficult. The rewards start to seem a little bit better now with the increased BTC price then what they were when first requested, but even then most of them are too difficult to be worth pursuing with the current rewards.

Yeah.  I've also noticed some characters are much, much harder by orders of magnitude to find than others; for instance prefix 1Satoshi ..., of course the 1's are much harder, and others with what looks like a comparable prefix i.e. 1 CAP (6x LC) are either harder or easier.  Not sure if I understand why.

Would anyone like to put small bounties on addresses such as:

1Bitcoin
1LoLcat
1LoLcats
1Miner
1BtcMinr
1[up to 7 valid chars]

?

t looks like someone is hammering my vanitypool-value API every 30 seconds with a Ruby script. The API is cached for 5 minutes, so you aren't actually gaining anything from pinging it so often. Would you please reduce the frequency to closer to 5 minutes?

The IP address of the requests starts is 82.

Thanks!

Is there a functioning split-key vanity pool. There were two before but I can't seem to find the other legitimate one.

For the record, the pool in the first message of the topic is still alive and paying out rewards. I've successfully found a solution recently and got the reward, so feel free to post vanity requests. Smiley

I have some questions

I 'm getting this:

Code:
./oclvanityminer: /usr/local/cuda-8.0/targets/x86_64-linux/lib/libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available (required by ./oclvanityminer)
Searching for pattern: "1BETBTCcom" Reward: 0.200000 Value: 0.000000 BTC/Gkey
Difficulty: 2938077882634386
Total value for current work: 0.000000 BTC/Gkey
[22.68 Mkey/s][total 48909778944][Prob 0.0%][50% in 2.8y]

- Is "no version information available" is just a warning or a serious error?
- Does the miner search only for the displayed pattern (ie 1BETBTCcom) or a pattern set?
- Can we use several miners (different computers) with the same credit address?

No version info available is just a warning; as you can see, it does searches for the hash regardless.

The miner only searches for the one pattern displayed (it choses the one it thinks being most profitable based on reward divided by difficulty).

You can use as many computers with the same credit address as you want; if one of them finds a solution it will submit it with that address. The computations are done "offline" with no shares sent to the upstream server, so it doesn't really knows how many miners are there until one of them finds a solution. (Well, technically they still request a list of available bounties from the server every once in a while, but it gives no indication to the pool of the speed and capacity of each client).

How to choose what pattern to generate?
I don't have a very good GPU and with the autochosen pattern it says 50% in 25 years,
i guess what i want to say is how to choose the one with the lowest difficult?

A couple of question about https://vanitypool.appspot.com/

1) How can I know if I have to use compressed or uncompressed keys for the search? For example, in this case:

https://vanitypool.appspot.com/availableWork   -->  "11111111"
public key: 04C13D9CF2B0E382A4AF29C5E2B97F85C6DD9445F7DCE82CD7207E6FC4716511981B0012C10B39EF1 52257A8407A2965F92F075379D311D5786D9421795B82D01C

can I use only compressed keys?

I found this public key:

Code:
a15f585a9d39a8a091962d11af1e96320fc3543b5201a8c9b12eedf695bad359 3b6621eddf4207bd186c8293c6b497555594b32d2eb9c09ae8f81791a0dfde48

if I add it with the public key
Code:
C13D9CF2B0E382A4AF29C5E2B97F85C6DD9445F7DCE82CD7207E6FC471651198 1B0012C10B39EF152257A8407A2965F92F075379D311D5786D9421795B82D01C

I get this public key

Code:
83f0e53639fbcead931a0d19eb3f3f6684dc75fac68a8c5dbc21cdb8b4ecfb19 d933c437e192b2b6dd27a6b9d09e6470ca220ed27d4bcb05251b1d0e47adad90

in compressed format

Code:
0283f0e53639fbcead931a0d19eb3f3f6684dc75fac68a8c5dbc21cdb8b4ecfb19

that gives this address (only 7 '1'):

Code:
11111113ix5Nw6kgetPaMBCWBdp5TTfX

My question is: if I found a match with the pattern "11111111", would it be valid? Or do I have to use only uncompressed keys?

I don't want to waste time with a fruitless quest.

Arulbero asks for an interesting question. Compress and uncompressed Krys are allowed ?

About how long would it take the Vanitygen pool to find 1ZeusLight ?

I've been thinking about this for a bit, and mainly about the possibility of merge-mining many addresses at once, to massively increase efficiency. This is what I've come up with:

1. Everybody who wants an address generates an ECDSA keypair, a Personal Pair
2. Everybody gives their public keys to the pool, which combines them into the Combined Public Key
3. The pool distributes the Combined Public Key to miners. The miners generate random keypairs until they find the right address when combined with the Combined Public Key, the same way it's done with split mining.
4. The randomly generated private key is given to the person who requested the address
5. Everybody but the person who requested the address gives their private key to the person who requested it.
6. The person who requested the key can spend funds by combining the pool's random private key, everybody else's private key, and his own private key.
7. Everybody else generates new keypairs and mining starts again, return to step 1

There are issues (for example, what if somebody chooses not to give up their private key after someone else's address is found?), but perhaps it is possible to work around them. This could make a big difference for mining speed, and I'm sure it is worth the downsides.

EDIT: I'm not the first to come up with this, apparently. See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1715787.0 by user ArcCsch. When I am done with my current project, I may begin work on a merged-mining pool, and looking into cool aspects of this, for example the most optimised way to split up into smaller merged pools to minimize risk while still keeping profits higher than with "solo" mining.

I'm not much of a business person either. But I would imagine some type of stock issuance would be a start !)

Is there a method of writing the -f document in vanitygen that will allow multiple split pair jobs at once?

The -P flag is where you place the pubkey for someone looking for a job done securely for them.

Code:
vanitygen -P 04ED64430556D8A00175291C1DE84D4989D5568AFA0DEB7F9331766AF077B01470E4A44C5D7347E64AA709E8A475D4AE7658E5C9DD96CF3C8061D430BBDE1C45D7 1machine

The -f flag allows a file with one job per line, but from what I can find it only allows direct searches, not split pair searches.

work.txt

vanitygen -f work.txt

You can only mine with one public key at a time, so this doesn't make much sense. You can mine multiple addresses that all use the same public key, but not multiple addresses each with different pubkeys.
