Ethereum address private key generator & balance checker

Even if you were to generate one address for each grain of sand on Earth every second, and do it for as long as old the galaxy is ~13.21 billion years, you'd still be nowhere near likely to have found even a single duplicate.

Glitched BrofistCoinBut that's not going to stop us from trying, right?

All the Ethereum addresses (all 1,461,501,637,330,902,918,203,684,832,716,283,019,655,932,542,976 of them) already "exist". It's just that nobody knows the private keys to unlock them... yet. Feeling lucky?

This page, when kept open, generates random Ethereum address/private key pairs and checks for their balances. If a balance bigger than 0 is found, it will store the private key in the "Keys found" box below.

As of January 24, 2022 this page now requires you to connect to your wallet and use its built in Web3 provider because ya'll kept bursting my daily Infura limits. I also removed the CoinIMP crypto miner from here because it's junk. LFG!

Nothing yet, but one day for sure ;)

To be fair, only about 55,000,000 addresses have any potential balance on them to begin with. So your chances of actually stumbling upon a randomly generated private key that unlocks an address with a balance are astronomically small.

Yet somehow this has already been done before with Bitcoin. So it's technically possible to generate a private key randomly that controls an account with a balance.

Yes! It's technically possible to find the private key that controls Vitalik's Ethereum address.

Keep this page open for as long as you can and if you're really, really, REALLY fucking lucky, you will eventually find a private key and become a millionaire.
