PyBrainwallet

Python brainwallet generator

Generate and save a printable note

Compressed key/address option

Windows/Linux binaries - scrypt module issues prevent for now

BIP38 ec-multiply decryption

Known Issues

Won't accept ec-multiply private keys for decrypt - not implemented

Absolute layout may cause display issues

Previous Versions

Outdated Windows binary and source in windows branch

Required Modules

  • wxPython
  • qrcode
  • six
  • PyCrypto
  • scrypt
  • base58
  • PIL or pillow
  • pybitcointools

The following should work for at least Ubuntu 12.04 and Raspbian:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev build essential

sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxtools wx2.8-i18n libwxgtk2.8-dev

sudo pip install qrcode six pycrypto pillow scrypt base58

Download pybitcointools zip from github.com/vbuterin/pybitcointools

or wget http://github.com/vbuterin/pybitcointools/archive/master.zip

Extract, cd to directory

sudo python setup.py install

Windows:

Download and install pybitcointools

pip install qrcode six pycrypto pillow scrypt base58

Pip may fail to build some required modules. Many binary installers can be found at http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/, and PyCrypto can be found at http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/modules.shtml#pycrypto

If you have trouble compiling scrypt, try MinGW.

Completely remove any failed installation of scrypt before continuing.

After installing MinGW, download the source from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/scrypt/

Extract, then build with python setup.py build -c mingw32, then python setup.py install
