I think carrying Lego is actually quite suspicious, since they have a lot of spots to hide something and people usually don't carry unsealed packs of random Lego. Anyway, why would you want to hide a microSD card in airport? Is that illegal or what? You could also just memorize your wallet seed - it's only 12 words, and turn your brain into a backup storage of your Bitcoins  Wink

Yeah, I don't trust my memory for that, even though I can memorize 64 alphanumeric characters, LOL. All my bank passwords and logins are random looking.

This was more of a fun idea. Truth be told, I would just print a paper wallet or write the words in a normal book I carry. The microSD card is for convenience.

I still use Bitcoin Core, so my wallet.dat file is about 8mb already after so many years. Might switch to the new HD format it now uses.

I just ordered a binder and some sheet protectors, that's probably where I'll stick my paper wallets in. Or stick the memory card in my bi-fold leather wallet, the one that holds my credit cards and fiat paper bills. I mean it already has a bunch of smart chips, x-ray isn't going to bother looking.

Password length adds much more security than "randomness" created by additions characters, numbers, etc. Hackers can crack with brute force most of "random password" with 10 or less characters within a few days.
As for wallet seed, it might be hard to memorize 12 random words, but you can encrypt them with, for example, 10 words that are easy to remember together, because they form a phrase. You can than store encrypted wallet seed in some cloud storage, so your backup is no longer weak to physical destruction.

12 to 16 should be the minimum length for any password. I use the maximum allowed by banks, usually 18 or 20. For any other website, I use either the maximum length allowed or 32, even for temporary accounts.

Oh, just an idea to store backups of wallets or private keys or anything.









Pictures are worth a thousand bitcoins.

Put them all in a box or clear plastic bag, keep on your person, and you can go through any airport anywhere in the world. Unless you encounter a government that doesn't like kid's toys; don't go to North Korea maybe.

What a brilliant idea, even to keep as a secret location in the house.
it could be left in a pile anywhere.

The only thing is Lego is very popular at the moment, mind it isnt sold
on ebay by mistake  Grin

it is for sure hard to beat a memory wallet and can also be hard to remember the seed words.

What about a line from a favorite song or even a complete verse?

I have this nice little decorative keyring thingy which doesnt look like a USB
its only 4gb but handy for essentials  Wink and the lid is very secure.

That's not a good idea. Every song and every verse is already out there in some cracking dictionary or can be loaded on the fly.

However, combine your line or verse with a bunch of random characters and you may have a winner. I'd still say the bunch of random characters be at least 12 to 16.

Wrap it in paper or small cloth or something before closing the lego pieces together?

If you had a million dollars worth of bitcoin in that microSD card then that would be the most expensive toy around. Though if kid had it, he wouldn't be the envy of all other kids though. Tongue

Nice idea, imagine when you (or your children) are playing this toy and you can proud of the most expensive toy in the world you have
