Now I want to go more technical and I have a lot of questions. Hope there are technical people here who have understanding of how crypto works under the hood.


My first question is: How create a paper wallet manually (not using any website or programs), using a paper and pencil. If during this process I need to use sha256() function to calculate hash of something I can do that using a program or advanced calculator that has such function, that is not problem.




Try cold storages


How to create paper wallet manually ? I want to know what is means to have a wallet, minimalistically.
