This program reimplements SimpleYggGen in Go, importing the original Yggdrasil code for generating keys and utilizing multiple CPU threads for mining.


% go get -u -v


SimpleYggGen is originally a project by @acetone, who wrote a bash miner for getting "magic" Yggdrasil addresses following a pattern. The main problem with his implementation was that it ran grep and yggdrasil as separate processes, making mining very slow. Even though acetone later made a C++ implementation, it still relies on running Yggdrasil as a separate process.


Obviously far superior to the original SimpleYggGen (Yggdrasil link, you might need to install Yggdrasil to open this link).

With multiple threads it takes SimpleYggGen a month to run through a few million cycles and find keys for 200::c84:77b0:f66d:b47e:64c7 (targeting ::). syg_go has found keys for 206:bcdb::ac47:4e3b:b97e:df4e with the same target in 27 minutes, utilizing 8 threads on AMD Ryzen 1700X.

With 8 threads on Ryzen 1700X while searching for :: this program reaches:

  • 10 000 000 iterations in 2 minutes, 36 seconds
  • 100 000 000 iterations in 25 minutes, 58 seconds
  • 500 000 000 iterations in 2 hours, 10 minutes
