Are Your Bitcoins Safe? Large Bitcoin Collider Finds Another Private Key

It was supposed to be impossible to discover a bitcoin’s private key without the owners’ consent, but the Large Bitcoin Collider “LBC” pool is proving that assumption incorrect. LBC found a 14th private key a few days ago according to their website, the first since April.

A look at the blockchain shows the address, 15K1YKJMiJ4fpesTVUcByoz334rHmknxmT, was quickly emptied to 1GaZi2TSYLns8A85yAQr1Js7Rqjrn5HGZ where the BTC still resides.

  1. Donate Bitcoin or Litecoin for helping homeless:

    BTC: 38bRgcZdbVseESYST9J21qFhHh8VnqrQ11

    LTC: 3Kois12dXT2obRmNyYwbR6q8F35L3RBfEf

  2. It wasn’t the 14th private key, it was the 53rd private
    key and now they’re moving onto the 54th private key.
    It’s a puzzle they’re after, and attempting to find collisions
    on private keys. Please correct your story.
