Is there anyway to shrink a wallet (unused/empty of course) to a size that would fit in a QR code?

The smallest would be making a private key and matching address. Then when you want to spend it, just import the private key.

Technically, you don't even need to store the address. You can use the private key to generate to address whenever it is needed.

True. I was just thinking small and simple. But yes, just the private key would be the smallest.
