BitBean Address
Private Key (Wallet Import Format)

BitBean Digital Cash is simple, consisting of a single pairing of a BitBean address with its corresponding BitBean private key. These key pairs have been generated for you in your web browser and is displayed above. When printed to paper, this creates your BitBean Digital Cash.

To safeguard your BitBean Digital Cash you must print or otherwise record the BitBean address and private key. It is important to make a backup copy of the private key and store it in a safe location. This site does not have knowledge of your private key. If you leave or refresh this page, or press the "Generate New Address" button then a new private key will be generated and the previously displayed private key will not be retrievable. Your BitBean private key should be kept a secret. Whomever you share the private key with has access to spend all the BitBeans associated with that address. If you print your key pair, you need to take measures to keep it safe from water. Treat your BitBean Digital Cash just as you would other cash.

Add funds to this wallet by instructing others to send BitBeans to your BitBean address.

Check your balance by going to any of the following Block Explorers and entering your BitBean address:

Spend your BitBeans by downloading one of the popular BitBean p2p/Keychain Apps found Here for Windows, MAC OS, Linux, or Android. Or Here to compile from source. Run the Keychain App/wallet and use it to import your private key. Keep in mind when you import your single key to a BitBean p2p client and spend funds your key will be bundled with other private keys in the p2p client. When you perform a transaction your change will be sent to another BitBean address within the p2p client wallet. You must then backup the p2p client/Keychain App and keep it safe as your remaining BitBeans will be stored there. It is advised to never delete a Keypair (as general rule).

Why should I use a Bulk Keypairs to accept BitBeans on my website?
The traditional approach to accepting BitBeans on your website requires that you install the official BitBean client daemon ("BitBeand"). Many website hosting packages don't support installing the BitBean daemon. Also, running the BitBean daemon on your web server means your private keys are hosted on the server and could get stolen if your web server is hacked. Using Bulk Keypairs allows you to upload only the BitBean addresses and not the private keys. This helps provide a secure solution if your web server is ever compromised.
How do I use a Bulk Keypairs to accept BitBeans on my website?
  1. Use the Bulk Keypair tab to pre-generate a large number of BitBean addresses (10,000+). Copy and paste the generated comma separated values (CSV) list to a secure text file on your computer. Backup the file you just created to a secure location.
  2. Import the BitBean addresses into a database table on your web server. (Don't put the wallet/private keys on your web server, otherwise you risk hackers stealing your Bitbeans, just use the BitBean addresses as they will be shown to customers, in order to make payments to those addresses.)
  3. Provide an option on your website's shopping cart for your customer to pay in BitBean. When the customer chooses to pay in BitBean you will then display one of the addresses from your database to the customer as his "payment address" and save it with his shopping cart order.
  4. You now need to be notified when the payment arrives which can be programmatically automated. To manually check if a payment has arrived you can use the BitBean Block Explorer (other BitBean Block Exploreres are available as well: www.bitbean.org) and paste the BitBean address you are checking into the search box. BitBean is a fast payment network. Your transaction will be transmitted instantly and should be confirmed in less than a minute. Bitbean is up to thirty times faster than Bitcoin, and unlike Bitcoin, is designed to be a fast-transaction oriented payment network with twenty times the capacity of Bitcoin.
  5. As customers make payments to your BitBean addresses, Bitbeans will safely accumulate on the block chain in the associated addresses. You will need to use the original Keypairs (with the Private Keys) you generated in step 1 to spend or transfer them.

Step 1 Public Key:

Copy and paste the above into the Your-Part-Public-Key field in the Vanity Pool Website.
Step 1 Private Key:
Copy and paste the above Private Key field into a text file. Ideally save to an encrypted drive. You will need this to retrieve the BitBean Private Key once the Pool has found your prefix.
Enter Your Part Private Key (generated in Step 1 above and previously saved):

Your BitBean Private Key is a unique secret number that only you know. It can be encoded in a number of different formats. Below we show the BitBean Address and Public Key that corresponds to your Private Key as well as your Private Key in the most popular encoding formats (WIF, WIFC, HEX, B64, MINI).

BitBean stores public keys in compressed format. The client now also supports import and export of private keys with importprivkey and dumpprivkey in the Console or command line. The format of the exported private key is determined by whether the address was generated in an old or new wallet.

How do I make a wallet using dice? What is B6?
An important part of creating a BitBean wallet is ensuring the random numbers used to create the Keypair are truly random. Physical randomness is better than computer generated pseudo-randomness. The easiest way to generate physical randomness is with dice. To create a BitBean private key you only need one six sided die which you roll 99 times. Stopping each time to record the value of the die. When recording the values follow these rules: 1=1, 2=2, 3=3, 4=4, 5=5, 6=0. By doing this you are recording the big random number, your private key, in B6 or base 6 format. You can then enter the 99 character base 6 private key into the text field above and click View Details. You will then see the BitBean address associated with your private key. You should also make note of your private key in WIF format since it is more widely used.
