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 git.tdem.in/tdemin/syg_go
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
::). 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.

This program contains some modded code from Yggdrasil that aims to improve
performance. If you prefer to use original Yggdrasil code, set
% syg_go -help Usage of syg_go: -iter uint per how many iterations to output status (default 100000) -original use original Yggdrasil code -regex string regex to match addresses against (default "::") -threads int how many threads to use for mining (default 16) -version display version
