It was the Bitcointalk forum that inspired us to create Bitcointalksearch.org - Bitcointalk is an excellent site that should be the default page for anybody dealing in cryptocurrency,
since it is a virtual gold-mine of data. However, our experience and user feedback led us create our site;
Bitcointalk's search is slow, and difficult to get the results you need, because you need to log in first to find anything useful - furthermore, there are rate limiters for their search functionality.
The aim of our project is to create a faster website that yields more results and faster without having to create an account and eliminate the need to log in -
your personal data, therefore, will never be in jeopardy since we are not asking for any of your data and you don't need to provide them to use our site with all of its capabilities.
We created this website with the sole purpose of users being able to search quickly and efficiently in the field of cryptocurrency
so they will have access to the latest and most accurate information and thereby assisting the crypto-community at large.
When you generate a new bitcoin address, it only takes disk space on your own computer (like 500 bytes). It's like generating a new PGP private key, but less CPU intensive because it's ECC. The address space is effectively unlimited. It doesn't hurt anyone, so generate all you want.
If you're generating a new Bitcoin Address for each transaction, people may accidentally send to old ones. They will have that BA in their Transaction history and may think it's good for multiple uses. Just something to think about.
The possibility of accidentally sending to a random BA is insanely small though.
Also, generating a new address for each payment is the best way to do it. Maximum anonymity because of least re-use of addresses. The keyspace is large enough that we don't need to worry about exhausting it.
Generating addresses is CPU-intensive, and you don't touch the network when you generate a new address. It could only cause damage if a non-unique address was created, but this is so unlikely that it's not even worth considering.
Could the bitcoin network be destroyed by someone generating endless bitcoin addresses nonstop? I mean it sounds like it would do something really bad to it.
I'm pretty sure at some point a website will take payments in bitcoins and will decide to generate a new bitcoin address for each payment and end up endlessly generating new addresses like mad and do something bad to the network. Then more will start in.
