Working with Bitcoin private keys

Posted by oneitguy on September 8, 2021
A private key is basically just a number between 1 and 2256. This website generates keys for all of those numbers, spread out over pages of 128 keys each.

This website doesn't actually have a database of all private keys, that would take an impossible amount of disk space. Instead, keys are procedurally generated on the fly when a page is opened. The page number is used to calculate which keys should be on that page.

Finding an active wallet is hard, but not impossible. Every time you open a random page, you have a chance of finding someone else's fortune.

Every bitcoin address at your finger tips. Search and perhaps you will find the address of Satoshi Nakamoto.
