Since I am currently not working I find myself with a lot of time on my hands and everything else that goes with being unemployed.
Browsing the net I found directory.io. Supposedly has every private key for bitcoin.

*** Before you even think about it the chances of finding the address with some amount in it is very very slim, win the lottery before you find one. Or you have a horse shoe some were***


How similar is DASH compared to bitcoin? Number of possible addresses and such

it looks like the first 5 are addresses that have been used in the past, with 0 balance currently. The chances that this person generated private keys all month long (year long, years long) to find 5 addresses with previous use is practically zero. More likely he just used those 5 addresses, transferred the coin away that then claimed :"It took a lot of computing power to generate this database. Donations welcome" It appears that the vast majority of addresses are just generated like any other address. No history.Wow, on to page two, it says "Page 2 out of 904625697166532776746648320380374280100293470930272690489102837043110636675" - really? A database of bazillions and bazillions of private keys in pages of about 100 per page? That is crazy. Impossible? no. Just crazy and a waste. It probably represents a tiny, tiny fraction of possible addresses, which is why he puts 5 with previous usage at the top of the list.
LOL, look at this page!

One more interesting note, the Private Keys all start with "5Km2kuu" - which is really strange.

I have entered some random ones and the keys are valid.
I found it interesting and while there probably is a key that works good luck finding it.
