FTCVanity.exe

    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 | Tip ChristianRiesen

    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 …

    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 | Tip ChristianRiesen

    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 | Tip ChristianRiesen

    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 | Tip ChristianRiesen

    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? 😃


  • Regular Member | Tip ChristianRiesen

    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 🙂

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

    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 | Tip ChristianRiesen

    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 😃
    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!


  • Regular Member | Tip ChristianRiesen

    I used your feathercoin script. And on the console I just used vantitygen -X 14 6Chris

    Why would 1C be possible for bitcoin, but 6C not be possible for Feathercoin? Sorry a bit confused here.

    It’s all hex to me too :), I suppose the same way 2 + 2 !=5 and never can be unless the input 2 is altered to 3 or the applied maths changed (in this case the version/application byte altered), it all has to add up in order to produce a valid base58 private key and a 34 character address I suppose… :-\

    Although only related to Bitcoin address’s it’s enough to hurt your head 😃

    Might want to add the ability to select the Install Directory as it installs to “\FTCVanity\” which just installs to the root of the drive it’s run from, which happened to be T:\FTCVanity\ for me.
