I think keeping your wallet.dat or the total bitcoin map encrypted on a USB stick is one of the best ways to keep your wallet safe.

In posts like this that hold relatively essential information, but have 20+ pages of posts, how can we know whether we have the most up-to-date practices without reading through all the 'thanks-from-me-too' responses? It seems that a lot of relatively crucial information is stored here rather than on the wiki. Any suggestions on a way of having 'canonical' answers? Maybe a posting area where the OP can edit their post with any updated information?

I like the clarification that the wallet is actually a "key"... or, a method of access, nothing more.

Although it could take some time to master, what about just memorizing an address and its key?

The brain as a 100% secure wallet is a simple and intriguing possibility to me.

Sound good:

So far, I have to re-install per ubuntu live cd, but will this create 10 adresses again per boot?
Does wallet.dat contain all wallet addresses?

If I have install bitcoin client again, I presume can transfer back wallet.dat from usb to where client is by overwriting?

I also agree by encryption isn't the best choice as anyone can deleted encrypted file without password by reformatting or simply deleted from usb device! That's really pain! Simply store ubs device into safe place where no one can suspect!

The only thing that I wonder is when I request bitcoin under windows operating system.
When payments supposed to be instant, if I have to install client again and copy dat file from usb by overwriting the new wallet.dat, how quick will the transfer be there?

Electrum is an awesome client but there seem to be some bugs in the "flatfly" windows build:
  • It only generates new addresses (new wallet) with an online connection. And if the client is closed and then started without a connection, the gui doesnt show the addresses anymore, though they are still in the wallet.dat.
  • The command line parameters (eg. import, addresses, ..) dont work!

It doesnt matter, if the wallet is encrypted or not.

With the "old" build from btcurious, it worked!

Hello! Due to the newbie restrictions, i can't post this in the "electrum" thread, so i post it here:

Electrum is an awesome client but there seem to be some bugs in the "flatfly" windows build:
  • It only generates new addresses (new wallet) with an online connection. And if the client is closed and then started without a connection, the gui doesnt show the addresses anymore, though they are still in the wallet.dat.
  • The command line parameters (eg. import, addresses, ..) dont work!

It doesnt matter, if the wallet is encrypted or not.
I use electrum 0.49 - Win Vista

With the "old" build from btcurious, it worked!



indeed, the build from flatfly does not completely support command line parameters

you can create an offline wallet with Electrum, but it does involve the command line:

For me the client is useless if i can't import and use my own keys. Maybe i can do that using linux and than using the so created electrum.dat with the (flatfly) windows build. I dont know if that works but anyway it is quite a detour.  Undecided

Sure, there are posts about "loosing" wallets.
