How? Please explain how that is simple, as I really have no idea how to "print out a keypair".
Well, you extract it from your wallet using gavin's bitcoin tools
, and then you... print it ?
Aah, why didn't you say so, sir. What's this Python I need to strangle!?
Nope. And davout only said "theoretically". You could go all the way and look at the source code just to get the keys, but then again you could also just back up the entire wallet.dat of a few 100 KB. That's what I do. (Apart from printing out random Google search pictures)
Well, this thread is about printing wallets to paper, if you're not interested, please refrain from polluting it.
Whoa, easy, easy! I love the idea of a paper backup and I congratulate the OP to finding a program to do it.
I was simply stating that if you do not know how to extract the keys, print them to paper, then re-insert them into your wallet once they are rescanned, the next best option would be to print out
wallet.dat (back it up on paper) just like OP suggested.
Sorry if my lack of words made you think I don't give a damn. I do.
