at3n Posted December 18, 2017 Share Posted December 18, 2017 @Tinyaccount Fair enough, all those checks reduce the likelihood of the wallet being malicious, and you can do exactly the same with a hardware wallet, so as I said, similar levels of trust required, which was the main point of my point no. 2. I'm still not sure where I said that you need to bring a cold wallet online, I certainly didn't mean to say it. If you can tell me where it is, I'll amend it because I don't want to mislead people. Maybe you're referring to point 3, where I said: 11 hours ago, at3n said: A paper wallet requires you to temporarily expose the secret to a potentially insecure environment (physically) every time you use it. By this I mean that you need to remove the piece of paper from e.g. a safe in order to type it into the offline computer. While it's outside the safe, it's more vulnerable to physical threats. But with hardware you never move the secret from its secure storage (secure chip on the hardware device). If my original wording isn't clear enough then I'll change it. Thanks for the constructive feedback. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
