Tutorial on how to create a paper and digital offline Bitcoin wallet with Linux - Linux Tutorials - Learn Linux Configuration

The objective is to create an offline digital and paper bitcoin wallet using Linux operating system, VirtualBox and Electrum Bitcoin wallet. The outcome of this tutorial will be a paper with written keywords which can be used to access your bitcoins. We will also create an encrypted version of virtual machine as a digital backup to be stored digitally on a secure medium which will provide a convenient access to your bitcoins if necessary.

Hi, thank you for this. I understand that this is an article of past. But, I have a suggestion.

Article: https > linuxconfig dot org > tutorial-on-how-to-create-a-paper-and-digital-offline-bitcoin-wallet-with-linux

At the end of this article, when we encrypt the file, ccrypt removes “original” file and adds a new file named “original.cpt”. It’s like adding “.cpt” to original file’s name.

From https > www dot systutorials dot com > docs > linux > man > 1-ccrypt

-e, --encrypt : Encrypt. This is the default mode. If filename arguments are given, encrypt the files and append the suffix .cpt to their names. Otherwise, run as a filter.

In the article, under “Remove all traces”, asking reader to delete “cpt” file with “rm” command is wrong today.

rm BTC_Wallet.ova.cpt

I hate that I had to create account to report this. I hate that new users can’t post links.
