Thanks for the info.

The only secure wallet is one that doesn't touch a network.   

Check out this article.

The problem with tails is adding programs and saving the data.  They purposely make it difficult.  Better off using liberte.  much more robust.

If you prefer to not encrypt the files to avoid remembering passwords, you won't be secure, unless you make a physical backup of the media holding your money and then put that backup in a vault (at your house or in a bank).

Actually, you could do a weekly trip to the bank and put your wallet.dat on a memory stick in a safety box. Assuming that you have that many BTCs to protect.

NO!! Encryption is not some magic thingamajawb that protects you from all evil.

Let me clarify: A _backup_ is of absolutely NO USE. So your weekly trip doesn't accomplish anything if the very same file has been on your main operating system. This is a dangerous fallacy, hence my analogy with "keys" instead of "wallets".

Again: that would be like making a copy of your safe-key every week and putting that in the vault.

It has to be a new, untainted address, in conjunction with the wallet.dat that you deposit. Actually, this is way more convenient, since you don't have to access your bank vault at all. You just deposit/sent the coins into the right addresses.


It's ashame you can't just swallow the file & shit it out for future use's, it would make life so much easier
