say I know this is off topic but I gotta ask. I’m in this about 2 weeks…been putting off blockchain for years but hey, better late than never. So, I got my first hard wallet yesterday…the least expensive Trezor. I am admittedly quite disappointed. I thought that it would be able to store all coins/tokens…it cannot. It also does not appear to interface with many exchanges. Is there some open source code out there to make your own hard wallet with a solid state drive (SD or thumb) that is customizable?
The reason this is quite important is that I thought there was a soft layer of security on paperwallets where you could still password protect the privatekey…opps (I think you can do this is BTC paper but not Etherbased)
and finally they say not to upload your seed list. WHY??? Isn’t uploading it to reputable online storage and held in a folder/vault that is 2FA password protected not WAYYYY saver than under the mattress or ever a safe? That just seems to me to be the safest of all yet I have seen time and time again that this isn’t but not told why. Why?
And if I lose my Trezor and have access to my seed list online 2FA secured BUT I cannot get another Trezor (I only have one)…how do I access funds? I cannot.
So, wouldn’t 2FA online storage of paperwallets be the most secure storage? especially if it were your cell…
