>can i make my own cold sorage like Trezor
according to their website, it's open source hardware.

also, I used to hate the "it doesn't matter. you won't do it anyway" guy but after time has gone by, I have to admit that he's right 99% of the time

i'm sorry (in advance) for your loss

>> No.2508623

Depends what you are trying to make, probably the cheapest option is using an old android phone or a raspberry pi as your base.

Cheaper option would be to buy a device.

Cheapest option is just write it on paper and hide it somewhere.

>> No.2508751


oh ok... i understand now..

well i guess i'll use a paper now ?

>> No.2508779

Write in on paper, put it in a wallet from the corner store for $2. Done.
Never trust your fuking life savings to technology are you crazy. Crypto is going to moon and your wallet is going to break, batteries explode, memory fails. Fuck that.

>> No.2508781

yes I understood,

but I did not know at all the existence of the paper wallet. I also thought that the most secure were usb keys for crypto

>> No.2508786

Buy old laptop
Buy 4 usb drive 8gig
To drive 1 load TAILS with etcher
To drive 2 load iancoleman bip39 mnemonic tools and other wallet you want (xmr for example)
Boot your laptpop with drive 1 TAILS
Disconnect wifi/bluetooth
with drive 2 copy/paste files
Unplug drive 2
Generate all the mnemonic seed with the iancoleman’s tool and copy/paste them in a KeepassXC file (it’s encrypted)
Write or qrcode with your phone the 1st public address of the BIP44 Wallet for each private key you have
Copy the keepass file in drive 3 and 4
Send small amount of coin on the public address, verify on the blockchain explorer
When you want to spend the coin just use a wallet bip39 like trust or coinomi
Recover you seed
Throw the account and never use it again

What the fuck am I reading

>> No.2508859

it may work... i have an old pc on me at the moment but only two usb keys

>> No.2508894

a non-hardware cold wallet (paper or otherwise) is only secure if you generate and print it on an air gapped un-compromised machine.

>hide it somewhere.
But if they find it, they'll know where I store my loli pictures.

Gonna go out on a limb and guess that you're autistic?

>> No.2510707

It only sounds like gibberish if you don't recognize those are all software names. He's basically saying to use a temporary OS (Tails) to encrypt a secondary hard drive with your wallet, while the entire system is disconnected from any networks.

If you don't understand tech terms why are you here? Go play with rocks and mud instead.

>> No.2510835

imagine if phones were this cool

>> No.2510837

But this is /diy/, the place to play with mud (earthwork, pottery, brick) and rocks (masonry, gravel).

You are lost on your way to /g/.
