  1. Another option would be to represent the full address in a visual way so it's easier for a human to recognize. This way you encode the FULL address, and changing a single bit gives you a completely different image. Some examples generated using http://identicon.org/: The genesis account (rHb9CJAWyB4rj91VRWn96DkukG4bwdtyTh) Gatehub (rhub8VRN55s94qWKDv6jmDy1pUykJzF3wq) RippleFox (rKiCet8SdvWxPXnAgYarFUXMh1zCPz432Y)
  2. Wow that's expensive Definitely cheaper over here: I use a locker in a bank and it costs me 35€ a year, that's peanuts compared to what you could lose.
  3. If you're not trading? One or more offline generated paper wallets, put them in a secure locker in a bank. That's way better than having a Ledger S recovery phrase laying around somewhere in your home (which is almost the equivalent of having your secret, even if you don't have access to the hardware ledger).
  4. So what I read between the lines from all this fuss: If you're using a hardware wallet such as the Nano S, don't become careless because your secret is reasonably safe: Only use your ledger on a trusted machine Don't leave your hardware unsupervised in someones hands Know what the hardware ledger can protect you against, but more important, know against which attacks it CANT protect. Consider if you really need a hardware wallet, if you want to use it as cold storage, there are better solutions IMHO An attacker doesn't need your secret to steal your stash, he needs a valid signature on a malicious transaction.
  5. Yes, this! The TrustSet quality fields have a short description on what value it should be (a value n, where the quality is n/1,000,000,000), but I've seen examples which just use percentages such as 1.01 ... Also a description on what it actually does would be nice ;-)
