Just a heads up as a newbie...


I have no idea if the original post is still valid and there's no way I'm ploughing through 120 pages to catch up.

Could we please have an updated sticky, locked to prevent the 120 page thing?

Regarding the first post, if even relevant now, I admit to being somewhat confused by it. Firstly I know nothing about linux, and I certainly don't know how to install programs onto it it or set up an internet connection with it.

Frankly I found the whole thing somewhat ridiculous. I mean , Step 1, install a new operating system..  Really?

The bitcoin 'wallet' system is THAT flaky and insecure?

So as well as the huge hassle I already seem to be facing trying to get hold of bitcoins with a UK bank account, I have to install a new operating system, again, just to spend the things?

Is it just me or is this totally crazy? There's nothing 'convenient' or 'frictionless' about that.

Is there any work in progress to make a more secure wallet thingy?


 Huh

Request help with
1. Reasonably light weight client to start with - Ubuntu is 700 mb, downloads. Are for ever
2. Simple bitcoin client to install on Linux - I don't need a choice just one simple client
3. Exact commands on Linux to install the client suggested in step 2
4. Do all above on an USB as per original post

Thanks In adv

This is a great thread.  I was already using encryption and generally being really careful (I thought) despite my nearly non-existent level of coins.  But reading this has opened my eyes to a few security threats I hadn't really considered, and given me a better insight into both why and how "cold storage" is such a good idea.

Thank you, OP.

If I've been able to help out, donations are always welcome.

Well that is the point of this thread. I somebody gets a copy of your unencrypted wallet.dat they can copy it somewhere else and have access to your funds for ever Smiley. Only way to avoid that is creating the wallet on a clean installed system without a persistent file system (ie: Live CD) and copying the wallet.dat to a memory stick or pendrive that would never be use in your day to day computer.

As the objective of this is creating a savings account what you do is take note of the addresses created in the clean system and send your bitcoins to those address from your regular computer. When you want to take money from your savings account you load a clean system again (Live CD once again), load your backed up wallet.dat, send your money to wherever you want and shutdown the system without leaving a trace.

Hope this helps.

Hugs,
D
