Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it the bitcoineater address wasn't found. It was created manually and only works because it fits the base 58 algorithm with the proper checksum at the end so you can send bitcoins to it.

Is that why Btc cant be withdrawn from it?

BTC can't be spent from it for the same reason they can't from any other address - no one has guessed a private key.

I guarantee you there are quadrillions of private keys that correspond to that address (about 2^96).  But good luck finding even one of them.

Surprised nobody has beat my 11 real word yet lol.

Only took 1 night with two 660 ti's, running about 48Mk/s and a lot of words.

 As the number of letters in a word increases the number of available words decreases and the difficulty to find them as a bitcoin address increases exponentially so it's not surprising there are no 12 letter words yet.
 It would take about 100 days with your rig and a file of 3000 words for a 50% chance of finding a single case-insensitive match.
 
 This is my 12 letter real word address and I only found this by sheer luck while searching out 8 letter matches.

I don't really think that's exactly right either.  Basically look here:

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Technical_background_of_Bitcoin_addresses

In the section "how to create a bitcoin address" you'll notice that step 0 is "have an ECDSA key", but i ymagine that in step 1 you can start with a random number rather than a public key corresponding to a private key you know.  You just go ahead and do the hashing and the checksums and you've invented a bitcoin eater address which doesn't have a corresponding private key known by anyone.  It's not really true to say "the wallet exists" (wallets are software), but it is true that your address can't spend any bitcoins sent to it (because no one can sign transactions to spend them).

What is the best setup to more key/sec ??

Any good rig know that can work?

I currently run 2 R9 280x not bad but only 45mh.

Any idea which card are the best?

TIME is all that is needed......My gpu rig ran all summer, 2 years ago.........
And a Huge pattern list, I had well over 150 patterns...

  I was only doing 30 million a second
So you're the fucker that satoshi-spammed all the firstbits addresses?  Thankfully that scam died a death.

All but the few I use and the ones I posted here have never seen the light of day from the USB drive they are sitting on...... But can you link me to the satoshi-spammed firstbits addresses thread... interested what you are talking about.....

The most remarkable addresses (*) found in the blockchain will be listed below.  


Hall of Fame
------------

111111i4VTdHkzFqV2a4jntfZkdVk6B         (shortest address: 31 characters - owner: HugoTheSpider)
1odfsrirfbxtwjoviseqdnuixwvhsnPbJ       (longest lowercase prefix - owner: wtfvanity)
19279281759997344NJ2KMcdRZNVT5rHhq      (longest digits-only prefix  - owner: wtfvanity)
1QBDLYTDFHHZAABYSKGKPWKLSXZWCCJQBX      (all-uppercase - owner: etotheipi)

1otohotohMoQoxHux
LBveQiZcV3Pji3Tc
      (longest pronounceable prefix - owner: otoh)
1BubbLingsoup9hqv7cjnnrWFt9GmEmCHS      (12-char real-word vanity address - owner: xhomerx10)

123XjDj2ZQwgogCBZkYDrvUQBCR14ZJ321      (6-char palindrome address - owner: svenfaw)



Any others?


(*) I will only consider addresses that have an actual owner, so not stuff like:  

1111111111111111111114oLvT2   
1BitcoinEaterAddressDontSendf59kuE      (more info)

wow this is cool, I hope I can have like this Shocked

Its pretty rare, my best wallet is a 7 character wallet which took days to generate 1Greekhut, pretty cool imo but 11 characters case sensitive is crazt

I just realized not all addresses have the same characters. What is the minimum character and longest character count per address possible and based on what?

Whats the point of vanity addresses tho? The only thing it accomplishes is making it easier to track down your BTC. I would never use them. If you have a business you should use different addresses anyway. I guess its just for shits and giggles?

I think you can ask the same thing about "vanity" license plates used in the USA (maybe elsewhere?), that is, you can ask what the point is.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanity_plate

But I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by "makes it easier to track down your BTC".  If you mean in a good way, as in perhaps you can search a little easier on blockchain.info or something like that, you might be right (but I think you're still going to have to remember the nonvanity part somehow or another, unless they have a "search for prefix" or something like that).  But if you mean that it makes it easier for someone to brute-force your private key, I don't think you're correct at all.  The search space for btc addresses is waaaay too large.

Well they are still great if you want an address someone can donate to. If you post your donation address somewhere on the Internet it can also be track to you so you can just go and make a vanity address to begin with. It's mostly out of novelty reasons but hey, why not?

What are the constraints that you've set? Are you looking for an address with certain first bits or what are you looking for? If the number of characters is too high you won't be able to find an address. The time it takes to compute such an address rises exponentially, You have always got to keep that in mind or you will end up waiting for a year to get your address. Also keep in mind that the generator may not even know if the address you are looking for is it impossible to find.

i am trying to get a 1aaaaaaaaaaa of 111111444444 or something like that. but that's probably not possible within a reasonable time frame as i have no interest in running my pc for weeks.

that will take more than a few weeks if you're lucky especially wallets with numbers. I have been running for 1Canary on 360 Mkeys/s and have been running it for 3 days now. Its at 80% but no success
