readVanity Address Generator
We would like to introduce the NEM vanity address generator. Would you like to have an address with you name in it? If so, here is how to do it. We now have 2 options.
The 1st can be found on Github and is faster but needs to be compiled yourself.
The 2nd is a simple program you can download and run. 1) download
2) unzip to your desktop
3) open a command prompt and type cd Desktop/nemGenVanity
4) then type java genacc
5) pick the target that you would like in your address
Three letter words should come really fast, four letter still quickly, five letter words might take a some minutes, six letter words might take some hours, and seven letter words will take days. Some numbers will not work.
If you are happy, please tip Adam. NAU5O2-TNS7N4-WB5TKZ-SYSAQF-VWBVYU-3Q7FUC-KERBPaper Wallets
Wow, look at that!!! NEM now has paper wallets. Pretty exciting and beautiful.
If you would like to get one of these please follow the steps:
2) unzip to your desktop (or preferably a usb or flash drive)
3) open a command prompt and type cd Desktop/vouchergen (or your usb/flashdrive location instead of desktop)
4) then type java voucher
5) print and back up files
Optional: You can put this program on a usb or flash card. The paper wallets will automatically be stored on your flash drive. You can print up your paper wallets and you can store your flash and your paper wallets in two different secure locations and know that your XEM will always be safe. All of this can be done on a computer that is offline too for added security.
If you are happy with these paper wallets, please tip Owon. NANEMA-TZVL26-LNYIBB-GOZ7X2-IQ57UR-ZLEWFT-63YZ
