Bitcoin Paper Wallet Generator
Bitcoin is a digital currency created in 2009 that uses a decentralised ledger for secure payments and storing money that doesn't require centralised banks or people's personal information. It was announced as a way to liberate money in a similar way to how the internet made information free.
A paper wallet is a form of offline storage for your Bitcoin currency. By generating a public and private key using this service, you will be creating an offline wallet ready to receive Bitcoin cryptocurrency. Once you have transferred currency to this wallet, be sure to print the wallet details and store them somewhere safe. Alternatively, if you are gifting coins to someone, you can use our paper wallet service to print an attractive wallet for this purpose. The step-by-step instructions below will help you complete the process.
1) Randomise your wallet seed
To provide the best security for your wallet, a random seed can be generated by moving your mouse around the web page until the counter reaches zero. This step can be skipped and a random seed will still be generated by the script, but it should be noted that computer random number generation is not as random as human generated randomness.
2) Print your wallet details
Once your wallet keys have been generated click the Paper Wallet tab and print the page. Choosing the high quality settings on your printer options will ensure that the text and QR codes are easily readable.
3) Fold the wallet
Folding your paper wallet along the lines shown will ensure that the private key is obfuscated from casual viewing.
Tip: Place your folded wallet inside a zip-loc bag to protect it from moisture damage.
4) Share your public address
Use your public address to receive money from other crypto-currency users. You can share your public address as much as you want.
5) Keep your private key secret
DO NOT share your private key with anyone. This is literally the keys to your coins, and the equivalent of the PIN number for your bank card. If someone was to obtain it, they could withdraw the funds currently in the wallet!
- Are you using a secure operating system with up-to-date anti-virus and syware protection?
Absolutely! PaperWalletGenerator.Com is based upon the same well tested code as bitaddress.org and simply adds support for additional currencies.
All code is plain text with no encryption or obfuscation and makes no calls to any external scripts or websites. PaperWalletGenerator.Com is designed in such a way that new wallets can be generated without an internet connection, allowing our visitors to create paper wallets offline (by disconnecting their Wi-Fi or cable connection), ensuring that no details of wallets generated on this website can be leaked elsewhere.
Advantages of a paper wallet are multiple:
⇒ They are not subject to malwares and keyloggers
⇒ You don’t rely on a third party’s honesty or capacity to protect your coins
⇒ You won't lose your coins when your device break
Once you have generated and printed a wallet, you can send coins to the public address, like for any wallet. Store your paper wallet securely. It contains everything that is needed to spend your funds. Consider using BIP38 to secure your paper wallet with a password.
You will need to import your private key in a real client, that you can download from the currency website. The exact method to do that will depend on the client. If there is no integrated method, you can usually fall back to the debug console and use the command “importprivkey [yourprivatekey]“.
It’s not that different. You will find another design for the paper wallet and some improvements here and there. The big difference is that this is a unique project for a lot of currencies, so more people can review it and check its safety.
