Working on Bitcoin Certificate "paper wallets", wanting opinions and suggestions.
Hey everyone, I've been working on a way to make "paper wallet" Bitcoin Certificates. They contain an Address, Private Key, QR code of the private key, and a unique certificate ID to know that yours is one-of-a-kind. A paper wallet is basically a physical copy of a Bitcoin address and private key, where the digital copy of the private key is completely deleted. The reason I chose certificates is because when you buy in to stock, you have a certificate that represents ownership of that stock. My goal is to hopefully make a certificate worthy of being sold for Bitcoins.. I know some people have a need for a "paper wallet" so I wanted to make something that fit that need. I was hoping to get opinions, ideas, suggestions and all of the above.. Here's a picture with extra information as well:http://i.imgur.com/RNet0.jpg
Some questions about paper wallets (How do I store Bitcoin on it?)
So I've decided to store some bitcoins on a paper wallet so that I can bury the seed phrase somewhere on this planet and dig it up if I ever have to. Anyways, I still don't understand it all fully. I investigated a bit and found out that I should create a wallet on an offline computer and all that stuff. So my understanding is that I get a public key (a wallet code that I use to send money to it? or is it a key used to generate wallet addresses? :'<) and a private key (used to access the wallet?). I understand that I can send the money to the wallet via public key (I guess), but how would I send the money from that paper wallet if I ever need it? How are the fees and confirmations going to work? Is it a MUST to use BIP39 standard or can I use any words (from my own language)? If I can use any words, where do I enter them and what software do I use for it? Should I maybe write down the private key instead of using a seed phrase? Is bitaddress.org suitable for using seed phrase that I want? Sorry if these were already answered (I bet they were) but I'm just so confused and decided to write a post. Thanks in advance to everyone that is willing to help!
