AI gen code sucks, you will notice it’s importing but not using the isprime, nextprime. We generally called that “Pollards Rho”, not “Rho”.
It’s hallucinating fragments contextually related from a cryptography library.
I would recommend not using chatgpt for code.
it is absolute garbage at writing code. I didn't even notice that excess import. It did at least correctly name the function pollards_rho :)
Yes :-) all good! Just wanted to mention ECC/DLP va RSA in terminology;
I see people confuse factoring primes (RSA) with ECDLP (ECC). Bitcoin doesn’t specifically have to worry about prime factoring! (It may however indicate further advances in number theory…)
