This generates an expanded private key that derives a public key with a prefix of your chosing.
However, most wallets do not support expanded private keys.
Right now, the only wallet to do so is my fork of Nano Vault. Hopefully,
my pull request will be merged soon,
and this feature will be available in mainline NanoVault.
Until then, you can find an instance of my NanoVault fork here:
The source code to this website is available here,
and the source code to the miner server is availabe here.
Here's a sample expanded private key to test with.
Of course, don't put any significant funds in here, because the private key is public:
Expanded private key: 164C03C1F7632426DDF2D32FF1CA8199FC99D748E8DAF30E0C44C26DD2CD0150
Stage 1: Generating Your Base Key
Your base key is the base of the vanity key. The miner will get the base public key,
but not the base private key, which means they cannot find the private key of your vanity key.
This tool will save your base key in your browser (specifically localStorage), but
you should save this private key anyway. With it, you will likely be able to
continue where you left off.
Stage 2: Selecting a Miner
Don't know any Nano distributed vanity address miners?
Try joining the Nano Discord server.
If you're just testing this out for Nano Jam, here's a weak miner for that:
Failed to contact miner. Check that the URL is correct and the miner is online. Error:
Miner Name: Miner Maximum Characters:
This is a public miner, so anyone with the URL can use it.
Stage 3: Select prefix
Note: The first character of an address (after the nano_) must be either 1
or 3. If you don't care which your address is, you can use * as the first character
which will be twice as fast by ignoring the result of the first character.
The first character of your Nano address must be either 1, 3,
or either via *. Please see the note above.
is not a valid character in a Nano address.
Nano addresses can be composed of the numbers and lowercase, except0, 2, l, and v.
Your prefix is too large. Try reducing its length, or substituting characters with a wildcard (*).
Stage 4: Waiting For Miner
The miner is mining the vanity address.
Failed to check mining status. Check that your internet is working and the miner is online. Error:
