Bitcoin-qt password checker
Make a minimalist fork of bitcoin-qt to remove all elements of the code except password verification.
You can find bitcoin-qt here:
Make is so that the only thing it does is take a text file with a list of passwords and check each one as quickly as possible. This functionality is already in the code, so all I need is for the other functionality to be stripped out: no connecting to the network, no GUI, etc.
If you have any ideas for how to have it check the passwords faster, those are welcome, too.
An example of this is here:
As in that case, it should not require a full wallet.dat file but rather take as input parts of the output of pywallet
namely the "mkey" section and some of the "reserve" sections.
You need to have familiarity with c++ and bitcoin. Thank you!
