    [b]Guide To Importing generated private keys:[/b]

    To import a valid private key, simply start the Feathercoin client as usual and then navigate to:

    [quote]Help >> Debug Window >> Console[/quote]

    And enter the following command:

    [code]importprivkey “your private key here” [Your Label Here] [/code]

    Press enter and once it has been verified with the blockchain you will then have your own personal Vanity address! 8)

    Like so:

    [img]http://mtgoxlagometer.herobo.com/vanity.png[/img]

    [b]NOTE:[/b]The wallet must be unencrypted to import the new address, once imported the wallet can then be encrypted!
    If your wallet is currently encrypted then simply follow user:Ghostlander’s guide below:

    [quote name=“ghostlander” post=“6203” timestamp=“1369430629”]
    If a wallet is encrypted, type in the console before importing a private key:

    [code]walletpassphrase YourPassword Seconds[/code]

    Unlocks the wallet for a number of seconds specified, continue with importprivkey as usual.
    dumpprivkey shows it for a given address, proceed as above for encrypted wallets.

    Feel free to test the validity of my vanity address below ;D

    Thanks, this is really cool. Wish I could get the GPU miner to work. Trying to mine a long name is painful. something in the thousands of years :)



  • Seems interesting although I think I’ll take your Note and agree. Not sure how valid these are or will be, I’m quite content with my random generated Address, for now. :P

    This is just the start - Although I will be concentrating on vanitygen.exe & vanitygen64.exe for the time being as all of my GPU’s are in my miner and I’m running off the onboard intel at the minute :o - I’ll update with progress made so far in a bit…

    Oh they are a valid, I can assure you that ;)
    Will update with further details shortly…



  • Removed post and Updated OP instead ^^

    One of the packages needed to make it under linux: libpcre+±dev

    Also there is a fork that added some coins already, might be trivial to add feathercoin there: https://github.com/stevenh512/vanitygen


  • Regular Member

    Hmm, maybe not AS trivial. Just tried it on a local linux box for a litecoin:

    ./vanitygen -L LChris
    Prefix ‘LChris’ not possible
    Hint: valid litecoin addresses begin with “L”

    Um… right… It has to be an L, not an L … hu?

    try:

    [code]./vanitygen -X 48 your_pattern_here[/code]

    Instead of L and then start your pattern with an L …


  • Regular Member

    Nope. Working on that fork I linked above though.

    With the official zipped version under windows, I get the same btw.

    For Feathercoin address or Litecoin address are we talking about now?
    I’m lost? :)

    Anyway I should have v1.00 of FTCVanity out later, just a simple GUI front-end for vanitygen.exe, but should make creating the vanity address & private key a lot easier for most users…
    I have updated the OP as version 14 does not appear to like addresses pre-fixed with 7, so I am going to concentrate on just 6’s for now… :)


  • Regular Member

    I tried on Litecoin but also tried for feathercoin.

    14 is the right version for Feathercoin, as it can be 6 or 7.


  • Regular Member

    Also everything above 5 characters (plus the prefix of 1 or 6) totally kills you. You might get away with 6 if you can run it for a couple days, or 7 if you have a month.

    Works fine for me with 6’s
    14 does not appear to work correctly (100% any way) with pre-fix 7 for some reason, I have tried both 14 (6-7) & 15 (7-8)

    Yeah as to be expected as its only CPU generated.


  • Regular Member

    My 15 Characters needs a few thousand years to get there :) “Chris” Works, everything else is just unusable.

    15 Characters would take a while on a GPU as well :)
    Anyway, how vain are you, Chris? :D


  • Regular Member

    It would be nice to have addresses with my full name. But At this speed I get them in just shortly before the sun dies…

    “Chris” will have to suffice. I already got one working for bitcoin, now to make it work with feathercoin and litecoin :)


  • Regular Member

    Is the 64 bit version good to use? (obv. if you are on 64 machine)

    [/quote]

    It doesn’t make a great deal of difference tbh Markus, the real gains are to be had from the GPU, but even with a lot of characters, that can still take thousands of years :)

    FTCVanity.exe v1.00 officially released, I have updated the OP accordingly!
    Let me know how you all get on…As it’s still work in progress…


  • Regular Member

    Thanks for the release, but still the same problem:
    Prefix ‘6Chris’ not possible
    Hint: valid bitcoin addresses begin with “1”

    Hmmm yes 6Chris or 6chris doesn’t work :-\ , 6test does though :D
    What command line parameters did you input to create your 6Chris address in the end?

    Edit: Are you sure you have created a valid 6chris for a Feathercoin address? It’s looking more like the 6c or 6C is out of the range of valid possibilities for a 6 prefix address?..

    Double Edit: Re-read your posts, you got it working for Bitcoin :), yeah it is looking like 6chris or even 6c anything is not possible for a FTC address…You might have to try 6RChris that should work!
