how to create paper wallet
« on: December 27, 2017, 11:21:51 AM »
Hi, I am new here. I have been in crypto world for a month, but only trading on exchange sites. 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.


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

An important part of creating a Bitcoin wallet is ensuring the random numbers used to create the wallet are truly random. Physical randomness is better than computer generated pseudo-randomness. The easiest way to generate physical randomness is with dice. To create a Bitcoin private key you only need one six sided die which you roll 99 times. Stopping each time to record the value of the die. When recording the values follow these rules: 1=1, 2=2, 3=3, 4=4, 5=5, 6=0. By doing this you are recording the big random number, your private key, in B6 or base 6 format.
 Note that; You would need to flip the coin more times due to not having the available randomness of 6 sides vs 2. Not sure how many, but the process would be the same.

It is basically a cold storage which helps to generate your own key for your wallet to work offline as well. As the name suggest it is a print out on the paper or plastic cover. There are many web sources which generate open paper wallets including bitcoinpaperwallet.org.

Paper Wallet is the way to work offline by generating a key of your wallet in order to print it out on a paper or plastic cover. I think cold storage is the best option to secure your wallet as well, as far as I think. What do you think guys?

What is printed on the paper wallet are the private and public keys, usually in QR form, with the latter also serving as the address. You could just copy and paste the keys onto a text document and print that out (erasing the copy on the computer afterwards). Or you could use one of the free web services that generate the printable wallet for you. The key generation is usually done in your browser, so they are never transmitted on the internet. To be safe, you should clear your browser after printing. And never store an image of the paper wallet on your computer or phone.

paper wallet services have a nifty design that you can cut, fold and seal, making them a lightweight and relatively secure form of storing bitcoin offline. You send your bitcoin to the public address displayed on the wallet, and then store it in a secure place.

Even with paper wallets, you can check your balance at any time using blockchain.info (just type your public key into the search box). And most online wallets allow you to import your paper wallet data. To spend those bitcoin, you will be asked to type in the private key information, or scan the private key QR code (sometimes called the "spend" QR code).

Some good paper wallet generators:

Bitaddress.org and Walletgenerator.net are open-source random address and key generators that uses your browser's JavaScript engine, so no keys are sent over the internet.

Would you also recommend a Ledger Nano S as a Hardware wallet?
Some people swear by it but I'm a little bit skeptical.
Is this really safe? Are there many different types of Ledgers? Which one would you recommend, the Nano S?
Thanks in advance (:

Thank you for the information! So the Paper wallet seems like the most secure one. But I heard that it pretty complicated to use and is not suitable if you want permament access to the stored bitcoins - is that true? Don't you just have to scan the QR-code inside the wallet? And if you would want another wallet, what additional wallet would make sense? As I am only a beginner I would really appreciate the help, thanks in advance:)

Hi, in my opinion, paper wallet it the best way to keep your bitcoins safe, I would also recommend using encryption for the paper wallet so that I cloud not be readily understandable.

I've heard that there's a nice tool to compare available wallets, it's called coinario or sth similar.
Personally, I also would recommend using paper wallets, cause it's the purpose of creating them, to keep cyptocurrencies safe. I suppose there won't be safer place.

Just get yourself a secure bitcoin cold wallet to keep your Bitcoin safe. A paper wallet can be lost over time or deteriorate while a hardware wallet will digitally encrypt your personal keys.

I am not exactly someone who is master with these things, but I know something that will help in regard to Paper Wallet. It’s through Cryptolinks, as they have links of everything, including the proper guidance of Paper Wallet and the way towards the top site.

So, I believe these are the type of things that can be extremely helpful and beneficial for a beginner. At least, it is something that helped me. Good luck

Don't use paper wallets. They are theoretically more secure but the problem is how to securely generate them.

Can't share links for some reason but here check out the flaws of paper wallets here:

I am not an expert but I can suggest something that should work very well. And that is Cryptolinks, where all details are available about Paper Wallet, it is something that a beginner must look into.

It is something that benefits greatly, so there is just no way could we skip this. Although it is fair to say that not everyone needs or will be interested, but having knowledge about this is something that can really benefit us in long run.

Yeah avoid paper wallets. Instead use hardware wallets like Ledger. However, be careful of fake Ledger scams like the following:

Paper wallets are one of the highly secured cryptocurrency wallets that are invisible to the hacker’s fishing eye. Many investors out there maintain two types of cryptocurrency wallets for security purposes. A bunch of crypto coins is stored in offline secure wallets like hardware and paper, whereas penny of cryptocurrencies is stored in software wallets for ease-of-use by investors.
Now, let’s get into the creation of this secured crypto paper wallet!

How to create a paper wallet?

A paper wallet is just like the paytm or UPI QR codes available on the retail shop for online payments. Paper wallet comprises of your wallet’s private and public keys in the form of QR code. The public and private keys can be generated as QR codes through websites or trusted resources on the web and can be printed in durable paper or plastic sheets. Once the paper wallet is printed, you must erase the browsing history and vanish the stamps of your wallet keys. This way you can secure your crypto coins in cold storage that is tamper-proof!
