News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

btc has official currency. you can check it on mtgox.com. right now it's around 5.2 but depends on how low you are willing to buy or sell. or how high.
1 btc = $5.2

I think as long as people have virtual or perceived value currency or in fact a notion that they can own anything, there will not be a 100% secure way to safeguard those "possesions" Smiley

My method for some time now has been to generate a wallet using a hash of a string on bitaddress.org, send bitcoins to the address, and then sit on them until I am ready to spend. Then I import the private key into an ewallet and spend immediately. That way, I am totally offline without counterparty risk until the ~ two minutes my private key is exposed to anybody. Also, are there any ewallets that allow private key import on iOS's safari?

How do you mean 'sit on them', how/where do you store the private key for the money on that address?

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

A wallet can never be 100% secure (: But still yes, I agree this makes your wallet a whole lot safer.

In my head. It is a "brainwallet," a.k.a. the private key is generated from a string of letters or numbers I come up with, such as "I love my dog and my cat also" or "il0vemyd0gandmycata150". anything works. I do it by going to bitaddress (I have it saved as am html file on my computer in case something happens to the website), and I click on "wallet details." When it asks for your private key, I just type in some words that I know I can remember. It then asks if I want to generate a private key from the phrase, and I say yes. Then it gives me the public and private key that is generated from the seed.

Ah, all right! Wasn't aware that bitaddress.org is capable of this. I tried it with some test strings, but apparently they were too short cause it just said "this is not a valid private key" (thus I assumed it only took existing private keys). With sufficiently long strings however (at least 12 characters apparently), it does accept them as passphrases. Nice!

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

A linux distro that has everything you need probably can't come quick enough.

The distributor of that distro needs to enjoy enormous trust.

I trust a vanilla ubuntu live cd a ton lot more to contain no wallet stealer than a special "for your secure bitcoin savings" distro.

I am quite fond of TAILS but of course a Live CD can't store data like your wallet and private GPG key - it is possible though to use the built in disk utility to encrypt a USB stick which can contain such information.
