This question is an extension of Families of public/private keys in elliptic curve cryptography As described above, bitcoin "type 2" deterministic wallets use a root private/public key pair, where ...
Bitcoin uses SHA-256, Base58Check, ECDSA (Sep256k1) and RIPEMD-160 as the basis of its encryption (see this article for a short guide on how addresses are created). I would like to create an ...
I want to create a brain wallet using a custom diceware since I don't like the original one. Instead of 7776 words it has 46656 because I use 6 dice for each word instead of 5, and also it only has ...
Bitcoin stores its addresses as a combined SHA256 + RIPE-MD160 hash. Is it correct to assume this is done to prevent a failure in the algorithm? Since SHA3 was designed to be an alternative to ...
