A self-contained Live CD/USB key with everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. Offline cold storage made (slightly more) practical.

It seems like a good idea, to create my own usb flash drive to transfer in a secure way bitcoins.

I have nothing to do with them, I just want to know if someone has something to say. Theres nothing in the forum about this and the github URL is not updated since a year ago.

It seems like what ledger wallet used to create their product.
But if it hasn't been updated in a year more than likely it isn't as secure as a current wallet would be.
Once a project hasn't been touched from it's developers for revisions for any malicious coding, it is dead and I would be cautious to use it.

FWIW, we just released a new version of BitKey and made some improvements to the documentation. It's a fun side-project for TurnKey GNU/Linux, something we developed & use for our personal needs. Hope people find it useful.

It's not necessarily a good idea to aggressively update software you intend to use to maintain an offline wallet. For that kind of use case, what you want is extreme conservatism. More of a "if it works don't fix it" mentality than a "latest and greatest".
