I have bitcoind 0.9.1 installed on my VPS debian server. I would like to store my coins via "cold storage", on paper wallets.

I read some articles over internet, but i don't know which one is usable/achievable in this case.

Could someone tell me some ideas how can i achieving cold storage via bitcoind.

  • With that do you need help? Creating a paper wallet, sending bitcoins, or whether its possible or not? – Mathias711 May 7 '14 at 12:12

    You can create a paper wallet (from a link from here for example) and then send the bitcoin to the address associated to that wallet. Then it is in the so-called cold storage. The paper does not need to know there are bitcoins on it, you just want to have the private key (which is printed on it) associated to the address you have sent you BTC to, whenever you want to access the BTC again – Mathias711 May 7 '14 at 12:16
  • The idea is that you have a private key on the paper wallet, which is the ONLY (so dont loose it ;) ) option to access that specific wallet. Whatever ends up in that wallet is yours, whenever you send it (so before or after printing, but you have to create the address/key before sending of course) – Mathias711 May 7 '14 at 12:18
  • @Mathias711 Those comments together would make a nice answer. – Murch May 7 '14 at 12:51
