Nano Vanity Generator

A basic vanity address generator for the Nano cryptocurrency.

What is a vanity address?

A vanity address is an address that contains a word in it, e.g:

nano_1frankh36p3e4cy4xrtj79d5rmcgce9wh4zke366gik19gifb5kxcnoju3y5

This makes addresses easier to remember and makes requesting money from people easier as people can be more confident they have the correct address.

How do you make one?

There's no way to influence what letters are in your address so the only way to make one is to create hundreds of thousands of random addresses until you randomly get the right word.

Are they less secure?

No. Because they are created by generating thousands of completely random addresses, all the addresses are equally secure.

Features

At the moment it only supports simple prefixes, ignoring the first character (which is always a 1 or 3). By default it stops after the first matching address is found, but if you specify --count=N it will generate N matching addresses. (infinite if N=0).

It is practical to generate up to 7 letter words (with a decent CPU and a lot of patience). Note that the address alphabet does not contain l or v.

Usage

The easiest way to use it is with Docker.

$ docker run --rm frankh/nano-vanity --prefix="nano" --count=1

Dump the information to a file.

$ docker run --rm frankh/nano-vanity --prefix="nano" --count=1 -q > nano-results.txt
