Bitcoin discussion / Re: What is your best Bitcoin Security practices?
« on: August 28, 2018, 07:33:07 AM »
I think this is a great summary of many things you need to consider for security of your coins. I also think the private keys are a big aspect of security and really keeping them private is very important, if not anyone can have access to your coins... And I got the impression that a paper wallet really is the safest option for choosing a wallet. Also it might make sense to use a laptop that you only use for cryptos and to use Linux on that...

I just read those stories and really enjoyed them! Very interesting:) I just started to get into the field of bitcoins, because over time I saw so many different articles about cryptocurrency that I finally decided to gain some knowledge in this fascinating field that seems to become more and more relevant. But before I am ready to start buying, trading etc. I still have a lot to learn... How did you all prepare, did you just jump in or did you prepare yourselves a lot before you bought your first coins? :)

Bitcoin discussion / Re: how to create paper wallet

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:)

Thank you for the explanation! So does this mean with a soft fork, the users dont have to do anything, but with a hard fork they need to update a software? I still don't quite understand when a hard fork needs to happen/ when a soft fork needs to happen. Can anyone maybe explain why each ones happen? Thanks in advance:)
