So I've created a Paper wallet using bit address.org, and have joined Blockchain.com, but can't find out how to link the two?

Also the strategy I'm using at the moment-till maybe "you" say otherwise, is-I've bought Bitcoin using Coinbase, and am trying to send money to my bitaddress.org Paper Wallet-but Coinbase isn't showing me how to do this? So I can then register the transaction-and others on the Blockchain on blockchain.com Do you think I'm using the right strategy?

    Welcome to bitcoin.SE! Its great that you're doing research and asking questions, you'll find lots of friendly people here that are happy to help :) re: "Do you think I'm using the right strategy?"- no, I would consider your setup to be unnecessarily complex and insecure. As a new user, I wouldn't recommend you use a paper wallet, improper use can lead to loss. For more info see en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Paper_wallet . I would also generally avoid web-wallets (like blockchain.info), take a look at bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet and choose a wallet that suits your needs well.

When you are in your Coinbase account use their "Send" feature to send coins to your paper wallet. It will then prompt you for a wallet address to send the coins to. Enter your paper wallet address there. Choose the amount to send, etc.

If you are keeping the coins for yourself, there are better alternatives than paper wallet. If you are giving as a gift, just make sure recipient knows what to do or no do with the wallet.

  • Thank you so much Fraggle. I'm wondering if you'd be open to a Skype chat for some more questions? Perhaps i could send some bitcoin your way, for your time? I could forward my questions to you first perhaps? Thank you again. Ernie
