Hi

How encrypt backup of Bitcoin Classic?

Sorry for my question, I suppose there should already be a discussion about this but I cannot found some specific information.

Same as with bitcoin core, set a password for the wallet and it will also be used for the backup file. Keep in mind though that the wallet is only encrypting the private keys. If you worry about someone getting your addresses from the backup you should put it in encrypted container (e.g. using VeraCrypt).

What is the function of an Encrypted container? And how does it prove to be a failproof method to encrypt your information?

Alright. So Bitcoin Classic have not a encrypt backup system.
I'll try VeraCrypt, create a container and put the backup into to test.
Thanks a lot for your answer.

This depends on the type of wallet that you're using. For Bitcoin Core, you need to find and backup your 'wallet.dat' file which is usually located in your datadir

Thanks a lot!
Yes, my wallet is Bitcoin Core. I'll search about 'wallet.dat' and transferability to get more informations.
Thanks again.
