This package can search for private keys of virtual currency wallets.

It uses PHP and Javascript code to generate word lists from random words to create private keys.

Then, it uses the privatekeyfinder.io site API to search for known private keys recorded.

If it finds any virtual currency private keys, this package can check if the respective public keys have a balance.

Many people have created wallets to store amounts of virtual currency in Bitcoin and other virtual coins.

Sometimes, the owners of the wallets lose private keys to access those wallets. When that happens, they lose access to the virtual currency amounts stored in their wallets, causing significant financial losses.

This package provides a simple application to guess the private keys of known wallets by generating keys from a list of possible random words that can have been used to create the wallets.

This way, this package provides some hope to recover access to virtual currency wallets that the owners may have lost access due to having lost the wallet's private keys.

Bitcoin Key Private Find

A simple Bitcoin key generator built with PHP, JavaScript, and HTML. This project uses a wordlist to generate 12 random words, and from that obtains private keys. The corresponding public key is then checked for current and past balances.

Technologies Used

  • PHP: Used to perform server-side logic and communicate with external APIs.
  • JavaScript: Used for user interaction and AJAX requests.
  • HTML/CSS: Used for the user interface.

Features

  • Generation of 12 random words from a list of 2048 words.
  • Retrieval of private keys from the generated words.
  • Verification of current and past balances based on the public key.

Impact

This project demonstrates the vulnerability of cryptocurrency wallets when they use weak or easily predictable keys. On the other hand, it also serves as an educational tool to demonstrate how cryptocurrency wallets work and the importance of a secure key.

Non-Implemented Improvements

  1. Implementation of more security measures: In its current state, the project does not implement various security measures that would be appropriate for handling wallet keys.
  2. Performance optimization: The project currently makes multiple API requests for each generated key, which could be optimized.
  3. Improved user interface: The current user interface is quite basic and could be improved for a better user experience.
  4. Internationalization: The project is currently only available in English.
