Are there any Ethereum vanity address generators available other than:

Which is the fastest? Can they be optimized further?

What is the use-case of vanity addresses compared to normal addresses?

  • Your question is more an answer :) Maybe rephrase the question and consider adding also an own answer to this thread... – Waqar Lim Feb 6 '16 at 13:44

    I didn't want to answer my own question, and maybe accept it, that is a bit lame, isn't it? – makevoid Feb 6 '16 at 15:21

    It is okay to answer your own question. It is even encouraged. Even now you could answer it. Wait with accepting for some more days, maybe more answers will follow. – Waqar Lim Feb 6 '16 at 21:58

    To me, doing that, it looks a bit like reputation-farming, especially if you create the question and answer straight away. Also I don't know how to optimize a vanity address generator (I guess something can be done to the hash function to narrow it after each run but I don't know exactly what/how) and I would like to know the answer :). But if nobody puts another answer I'll try to, thanks. – makevoid Feb 6 '16 at 22:26

This is a community wiki of vanity address generators, sorted by name.

NOTE !

  • You should always check that you can use your newly generated addresses before sending any significant amount of ethers to these addresses.
  • You could send a small amount of ethers to your newly generated address, then move a small portion of these ethers from your newly generated address to another address.
  • You could cross-check your generated address against an air-gapped (if you are paranoid) installation of https://www.myetherwallet.com/. @tayvano is one of the authors.
  • Better still cross-check your generated address by importing your newly generated private key into geth (see How to import a plain private key into geth or Mist?).

Download from ethaddress.org or run from the Internet on your web browser from https://ryepdx.github.io/ethaddress.org/. @ryepdx is the author.

  • This is a full paper wallet generator that includes a bulk vanity generator
  • It is safer to download the ethaddress.org - master.zip from github, copy the package to an air-gapped computer (if you are paranoid), unzip the files and browse index.html.
  • There was a bug #19 in the address generation due to bug in the downstream ethereumjs-tx dependency, but this is now fixed. If you have downloaded this package prior to 03/03/2016, please re-download the package.

ethaddrgen

Ethaddrgen is a multicore command line utility written in Rust for generating Ethereum vanity addresses. It includes support for pattern lists, regexp, continuous results, and more.

Vanity Identicon Generators

Ethereum Vanity Identicon Generator

The Ethereum Vanity Identicon Generator is a JavaScript-based generator which can be run from your web browser. Cody Watts is the author.

  • Although it can be used to generate vanity addresses, its primary purpose is to generate addresses which have unusual or distinctive identicons.
  • Identicons can be filtered by symmetry, number of colors, contrast-ratio and color scheme.

Whit Jackson made one that appears to be made using HTML/Javascript (GitHub link). He also had a website where you could generate the addresses client side, but it appears to be down now.
