Hello I hope someone can help me please, basically I have made an offline paper wallet. Let's bare in mind I have no printer or camera phone. Anyway I made the paper wallet offline.I deleted a few digits offline and wrote them down safely Came back online..cleared my browser and cache etc. I made a note of the public key..and sent funds from Paxful.com to my public key in my paper wallet. I even checked the transaction on block chain explorer it had been sent. Now I have my private key...I've just read it should always start with a number 5..well my private key does not start with a number 5. Secondly it seems longer than my public key. What I want to know is can I withdraw or spend or send out again or have I lost them because I never scanned them?
