Twin paper wallets, is it possible?


#1

I want to know that when I generate let’s say 100 paper wallets using offline wallet generator:
Is it possible that another person generate the same paper wallet as mine?
How many paper wallets can an offline wallet generator generate?


#2

it is an insane amount of mathematical possible wallets
1626^24


#3

Yes it is possible… if they get every computer on the planet to make paper wallets 24/7 for many billions of years… they might get a duplicate. However, the SUN will have burnt out by then so you will likely have more pressing things to worry about :wink:

Long story short, realistically it’s mathematically impossible…

I have :yellow_heart: that, but as you made me actually laugh with that comment @BegaMutex I simply had to comment too. :grin::grin::grin::grin:

Bega is right :joy:. You may similarly wonder what happens if the same hash is found for two blocks. The reality is you could cube our best estimate at the number of atoms in the known universe and you’d still have a number lower than the chance of collision!
