Vanieth

A comprehensive and fast Ethereum vanity address "generator" written in golang.

Prerequisites:

You have to have go (golang) installed

Go get this repo:

go get github.com/makevoid/vanieth

Run it:

$GOPATH/bin/vanieth

Copy it to your path, or add $GOPATH/bin to your path

Example run:

$ vanieth 42
{"address":"0x42f32B004Da1093d51AE40a58F38E33BA4f46397","private":"4774628228852ee570d188f92cd10df3282bb5d895fc701733f43fca6bfb9852","public":"04d811caac49ba458fda498e5bc385bc9cc6e67aa6b19ba754c6cd75953ef06310e8607798ce5810a0b32fbd41fe8915de52fd511e7660038ff7067a0e94fc9481"}

The returned address and private key are in hex format. As you can see the ethereum address starts with the mythical 42.

Here's a more complex vanity address, this will take a significally longer time to do a complete run.

$ vanieth 1234
{"address":"0x12341b4c716B8FCFA8E13A83CA3dFd2c6051E60D","private":"ee50661eb0080cd36ce380f3dad5511c91f97ccee67bd14dc7a91335a34720d1","public":"04e0526fbc5552e4ff117a5c065ad3ce6f8211e160e12bdd3dded3dab2bfc268916489ed2c8d4af6c624406085c5e9a6946bdfbe0d74de26384a7c9baaf6f2de64"}

The more chars you add, the longer the time will be, exponentially!

Advanced features

Apart from searching for just prefixes you can also search for contract addresses, regular expressions and dump details for an existing or previously found private key:

Usage

Usage:
  vanieth [-acilqs] [-n num] [-d dist] (-key=key | -scan=address | search)

  -a, --address
    	Search for results in the main address (can specify with -c to search both at once)
  -c, --contract
    	Search through first "distance" number of contract addresses (or 10 if unspecified)
  -n, --count results
    	Keep searching until this many results have been found
  -d, --distance depth
    	Specify depth of contract addresses to search (only if -c or -l specified)
  -i, --ignore-case
    	Search in case-insensitive fashion
  --key key
    	Specify a single private key to display
  -l, --list
    	List all contract addresses within given "distance" number along with output
  --max-procs int
    	Set number of simultaneous processes (default = numCPUs)
  -s, --no-sum
    	Don't convert the address to a checksum address
  -q, --quiet
    	Don't print out speed progress updates, just the found addresses (forced if not TTY)
  --scan string
    	Scan a specified source address (only useful for searching contract addresses)
  -t, --timed seconds
    	Allow to run for given number of seconds

Examples:

vanieth -n 3 'ABC'

Find 3 addresses that have ABC at the beginning.

vanieth -t 5 'ABC'

Find as many address that have ABC at the beginning as possible within 5 seconds.

vanieth -c 'ABC'

Find any address that has ABC at the beginning of any of the first 10 contract addresses.

vanieth -cd1 '00+AB'

Find any address that has AB after 2 or more 0 chars in the first contract address.

vanieth '.*ABC'

Find a single address that contains ABC anywhere.

vanieth '.*DEF$'

Find a single address that contains DEF at the end.

vanieth -i 'A.*A$'

Find a single address that contains either A or a at both the start and end.

vanieth -ld1 '.*ABC'

Find a single address that contains ABC anywhere, and also list the first contract address.

vanieth -ld5 --key=0x349fbc254ff918305ae51967acc1e17cfbd1b7c7e84ef8fa670b26f3be6146ba

List the details and first five contract address for the supplied private key.

vanieth -l --scan=0x950024ae4d9934c65c9fd04249e0f383910d27f2

Show the first 10 contract addresses of the supplied address.

Enjoy,
