I generated a Bitcoin vanity address having a string “
TEST” in it.

I want to make such ones for other coins, too. If I could make altcoin vanity addresses of the same key pair preserving the “
TEST,” that would save some computational resources for me.
Some altcoins seem to have similar address generation steps with Bitcoin, but not sure if there’re any cases where this idea works.
Are there any? If so, which coins, for example? If never, why is it?
