Thank your for your informative answers!

Is this an analog of bitaddress.org? https://github.com/ryepdx/ethaddress.org

If so, is it as reliable as bitaddress.org ?

In order to use, I just need to download it and run 'index' right?

Use MyEtherWallet instead. I never heard of this paper wallet generator and haven't found anybody suggesting if the generation script it's safe or not (if could be but I honestly just prefer MEW).
You can download the source code here[1], unpack the zip file, open "index.html" (optionally without internet connection) and generate your wallet.

and in this way MEW will serve as a cold storage, right?

Yes. If you are offline and your private key/wallet file never leaves the PC or touch the internet, your wallet is as safe as any other kind of cold storage.

When you want to spend your coins, use the "Send offline" tab and follow all the steps to generate a transaction, sign offline and broadcast it.

Create the transaction offline (without a connection).

Then copy the completed transaction to something that communicates with Bitcoin peer nodes online.


This was already explained to you earlier in this thread:

Also, how do I spend/send my btc using that private key? What's the most basic way?
You create a bitcoin transaction with the appropriate inputs and outputs. Then you connect to Bitcoin peers on the internet and send that transaction to them. This is typically handled for you by wallet software.  The software allows you to enter someone's bitcoin address and the amount you are sending. Then it handles the creation and broadcasting of the transaction.



Is this those smart contracts of ETH? That's what they are?

No.  It's just transporting a transaction physically instead of electronically.

Thanks!
So it is not enough just to use ‘send offline’ tab when using MEW script in order to send coins - I need something that as you said ‘communicate with the network nodes’ right?

If so, then what should I use? Some
Web wallet?

Since you are using MEW, you can simple follow the instructions in the "Send Offline" tab to generate your transaction and use the Step 3 to broadcast your transaction to other nodes. Just paste your signed transaction in the last box and press "Send Transaction".

Altcoins.

How to find out if one is a coin or a token?
Do your own research about the coin/token. Find the website/ANN thread and look for more informations about it.

CoinMarketCap.com is a good place to start looking for this. You can for example, see in each coin/token page if they are a Coin or a Token.
