I was trying out copay, trying to create a 2 of 2 multisig wallet, but after you download the software it wont let you create a wallet without being connected to the internet. It says cannot establish connection or something. Why can you not generate the wallet offline? Whats the reason? Because from what i understand many other wallets have no problem setting up the whole thing offline, electrum for example. This would make copay a hot wallet correct? So doesn’t this mean because your forced to have the internet connected when you generate the wallet, your key can leak? Why would anyone want to risk generating their key while connected to the internet? What do you guys think about copay?
