I read an article about this project recently, they generated trillions of wallet & seem to find a few used wallet outside of their intended wallet. Many claim that sha256 still perfectly safe until 2060, but CPU & GPU power keep increasing faster than expected (Moore's law). If someone plan to use a supercomputer to brute force bitcoin wallet(Many large supercomputer projects admit breaking encryption key was part of their goals). What's the fastest hash speed will look like, based on current hardware?

  • @KappaDev um, i'm asking about address hashing speed per second, like Mkey/s or Gkey/s. The question you mention has notthing to do with it :O – うちはサラダ Dec 16 '18 at 17:36

    This question makes no sense. If you double the amount of hardware you have, the hash rate will double. The highest speed by a single machine is not relevant if you can use multiple machines. – Pieter Wuille Dec 16 '18 at 19:03
