    It will all be in the one place. Namely, your wallet. It's better to think of an address like a line item of your bank account or an invoice identifier. Every transaction should have a unique address associated with it.

    Nice! Actually I made it simpler by changing the grep line to 'grep DsKarman $TMPFILE' as is highly improbable to find the text with the Ds in the middle of the hash, saving computation time and making it faster.

    PSA: Copay, upon which the wallet that will be available at launch for Decred is based, only supports the seed-based addresses.

    This means those of you who are generating individual vanity addresses (-noseed) will effectively not be usable until wallet software that supports individual addresses is created. Also, as previously mentioned, it's not a good idea to generate a seed-based vanity address for security reasons.

    In order words, I would highly recommend against submitting an individual vanity address (one generated with -noseed) for the airdrop unless you completely understand the ramifications of doing so and are willing to wait until there is wallet software available to actually be able to use it.

    So addressed made with the (-noseed) option will not be able to receive the Air Drop ?

    For all and intents and purposes, no. Technically the addresses can receive the coins, but until there is wallet software that knows how deal with individual (-noseed) addresses, you won't be able to actually spend them.

    The coins sent to such an address are still controlled by the key pair the address represents (recall that an address is really just the base58 encoding of a prefix + a hash of the public key of a key pair + a checksum) and thus as long as you have the associated private key, you would eventually be able to spend them with wallet software that supports it.

    However, as I mentioned in the PSA, the Copay-based wallet that will be available at launch only supports deterministically generated key pairs from a seed. That means you can't import an individual key pair not based on a seed.

    I would say, "yes," bust only vested over time. :) Spending it may be a problem...

    Personally, I am waiting until much closer to the drop to generate mine, which will only be used for the drop. A lot of surprises can come out close to a deadline... And while you can update your drop address any time, I do not want to have to do it myself. :)

    I think it's important to mention. PLEASE NEVER USE ONLINE SERVICES TO GENERATE ADDRESS.
    You can loose all your coins. Really, don't do it :)

    Yea.. well.. If its a full javascript implementation.. then u can just see the source code and be sure nothing fishy is going on..
    Like they did in bitaddress.org .
    But its always better to be careful.

    In that solution everything happening on the server side. It's just 2 ajax requests. You cannot trust it.

    I propose to select some user like @davecgh, @_ingsoc or any project leader to audit code, and have full access on code/site. My porpous is provide a easy choice until have a secure client side code.

    What you guys do in this form post looks amazing from my perspective, it started as "just for fun" and goes to opensource gist code waiting to be audited :) Congrats...
