Guys, why you neeed to hide BIP38 key? Or even trust me to destroy those keys?
You'll give me ONLY encrypted key and only you will know pass-phrase.
I propose to all backer on Kickstarter to use this site: https://walletgenerator.net and generate there BIP38 protected keys. And for sure don't tell me that pass phrase.

The only thing you need to trust me is that I'll make engravings on metal cards Wink But that will be a really bad idea to bury a successful kickstarter account for extra several hundreds dollars.

I do understand that there is no need to hide or destroy the privkey but when it comes to my BIP38 keys i only keep the passphrase for them at one place - my mind. I don't want to forget it, lets say in 5 years- so i keep them short at 10-20 characters.
I just think, having a cover for the privkey would be extra security

Why wouldn't I just take some sort of stamp and stamp a piece of metal with my private key? Wouldn't this achieve the same results? Also, isn't this just another version of a steel wallet, which has already been done before? What's the difference with yours?

Interesting Idea.  I just pledged for a set of 3 Titanium Coin Armors.
If it works out I will be buying more for the kids and clients.

Thank You and Good Luck with your new adventure.

Interesting, I never knew there was a private key for bitcoins that can be passphrase encrypted. Well if this is the case then this might be a safe way to create something like this since the private key will not only be the one needed to open the wallet. Though I guess a lot of people will still be skeptical to give out the private key though, but I do think this could be an alternative to Cryptosteel which was also a kickstarter project.

Scrappy, first of all - thanks.
You can pledge 3*40=120$ for 9 titanium coin armors and leave me a private message on Kickstarter. and I'll make a note to myself.

Hi... just want to ask how the keys are put on the steel wallet. Is it printed on the surface of the metal card? Or is it actually etched out on the metal, making it permanent even if the black print fades, similar to an embossed credit card. Even if a credit card's color fades, the numbers are embossed and permanently raised.

The nice thing about your wallet is that, being metal, it is fire and waterproof and will survive termites and other pests which might find paper wallets delicious. Imagine finding half of your private key with, say, 100 BTC chewed off!

No printing! I engrave information with laser. I burn metal deeply (~0.1 mm - beleive me, it is deep) to form everything you see on the sruface. No chance to erase information on Coin Armor except you'll try to grind it Wink

Fully funded, I'm anxious to see this all in production!

When can we expect to see progress?

Also, since Ethereum doesn't support BIP38, how would we be able to send you private key information without revealing the key?
