Human desire to get something more recognizable is always in demand. And that demand also i found in my friends request. They are asking can we get something more better in our BTC address , so that we can recognize its our. Then i started studying about it and found very interesting and quit old system called as ” Vanitygen ” which is used to generate your own fancy or custom BTC Address.
So without wasting any further time , i downloaded it and make a test and later send some bitcoin satoshis to it and retrieve it. And found its all working. Now like to share same thing with you guys , may be some visitor of our site too like to get there own Custom Bitcoin Address.
My custom bitcoin address : 1LoveG2GzKPvELgM8WXwGANEnAMUuToLm
Well i retrieved all my bitcoin from there after the test. So lets go with the tutorial. Let me tell you this is for Window users.
$ vanitygen -X 85 b -k
$ vanitygen -X 85 bC -k
$ vanitygen -X 85 bZ -k
$ vanitygen -X 85 ba -k
$ vanitygen -X 85 bc -k
Generate Ixcoin (IXC) addresses:
$ vanitygen -X 138 x -k
$ vanitygen -X 138 xX -k
$ vanitygen -X 138 xZ -k
$ vanitygen -X 138 xa -k
$ vanitygen -X 138 xv -k
SOME IMPORTANT POINTS
If you have 32 Bit machine then use ” vanitygen [space] 1[yourchoice] ”
If you have 64 Bit machine then use ” vanitygen64 [space] 1[yourchoice] ”
The more lengthy choice the more time it will take. My machine is i7 Quad core so it took around 20-30 Minute to generate ” 1LoveG2GzKPvELgM8WXwGANEnAMUuToLm ” Btcaddress. But smaller one will take hardly minute or two like address starting with 1BTC or 1BBB etc
Also like to inform you if you type ” -v ” after command vanitygen then it will open help list which can guide you for more options.
Caps O , Small l [el] , Caps I [ai] , are not allowed to use in BTC address.
There is a online service too for generating Vanity Bitcoin address :- http://bitcoinvanitygen.com/But i will not recommend it to use as its online and privatekey from online service remain risky. But its upto.
Also like to inform you can generate Vanityaddress from CMD commands in offline mode too.
That’s it. Enjoy your new fancy bitcoin address. And have fun
