How secure is my plan: I want to generate a long-term cold storage wallet using Ian Colemans tool and regular dice

Hi there!
I have been into Bitcoin for a few years now, but I took a break from the topic and didn't keep up to date with the latest technology. When I was still active, paper wallets were still the hot new stuff!
I do own a Trezor Model T, but I want to be EXTRA paranoid and not trust the hardware wallet to generate a wallet for me. The chances of this are slim, but what if the hardware was modified to generate a wallet that another party has access to?
Now, I want to generate a highly secure long-term cold storage wallet for a relatively large amount of Bitcoin and only rely on myself. I already read quite a bit about the topic, but because of my inexperience I have a hard time understanding just how secure the method really is.
Then I found this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5nejoEGWFw
He generates the mnemonic by rolling dice and putting in the results as entropy into Ian Coleman's tool. From that, I created a plan that currently looks like this:
  1. How do I use the test vectors to validate Ian Colemans tool and where can I find them?
  2. Are regular dice rolls "secure enough" for this in terms of entropy and the guess of somebody guessing it?
  3. Does it make sense to use some more sources of randomness, like keyboard mashing and data from https://www.random.org that I have copied offline?
  4. Can I simply import the generated mnemonic into a hardware wallet like Trezor?
  5. Is the mnemonic (24 words) really enough to restore the wallet or do I need something else?
  6. Are change addresses handled with this or will some spare change be sent to other addresses I (maybe) dont control?
  7. Is there any way somebody could get access to my wallet if I only access it from the Trezor Wallet website and without exporting the private keys anywhere?
Thank you guys for your help, I really appreciate it! :)

I had like 3 friends ask me how to build a PC in the past week so I made this to help them.

(Reddit Edit: Help my improve the document with productive constructive comments on what I got wrong or messed up! Im only human lol
Also a lot of this is supposed to be kinda humorous. I didn't think I had to say that but, hey, its the internet.

Beginners basic guide to building your own PC as of early 2018
(EDIT: Sorry for being a MSI/Corsair Fanboy)
Heres a collection of thoughts to consider when building your own personal PC
As always Id personally use PCPartPicker.com to configure your parts and for further thoughts on compatibility.
First off building a computer is 100% based around what you plan to use the computer for.
Here are a few uses and generic ideas of what to go for. Audio Editing: Lots of small tasks that need to be completed quickly without lag. - Fast Processor( >4GHZ) - Fast RAM (MHZ) -At least 16 gigs! - Fast Storage, SSD manditorily - M.2 or PCI for best performance. - Shitty Graphics card, graphics card there only to keep the cpu from doing other tasks when working. - Can be a few generations or years old. - Many screens for lots of plug in windows to be open Video Editing: Lots of large to render and files to read. - Multi core processor the more the merrier - SSD for fast read/write of large video files. - Insane graphics card, AMD graphics cards are debatibly better but the nvidia Quadro series are specific for video rendering. Gaming: No more than 4 cores intense graphics card - 92% of games are not coded for more than 4 cores so why spend the extra money for it. - SSD for quick load screens - Nvidia cards, 10 series, the higher the number the better. Titan cards for MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE! Coding: quick processor for lots of small tasks. Ergonomic peripherials? - Dear god please dont use a mechanical keyboard so that your coworkers dont kill you. Home office: Everything can be a few gens behind so you can get the best power per dollar spent. - Sorry that Gateway doesnt exist anymore. I guess try Dell...

Glacier: A step-by-step protocol for high-security cold storage of bitcoins

Many people are interested in storing their own bitcoins rather than using an online wallet, either for security reasons or on principle.
But it’s harder than it looks. Techniques such as offline key generation are great, but not bulletproof; sophisticated malware might use WiFi even if it’s disabled in the OS, or write keys to the hard drive for re-transmission later when the system is online. Hardware wallets are great too, but how certain are you that an undiscovered vulnerability isn’t being exploited to grab your private keys over that USB cable?
When you’re dealing with large sums of money, relatively small risks such as these may feel unacceptably large -- and these examples are just the tip of the iceberg.
We made Glacier to help people navigate around these risks. Glacier is a free open-source protocol that walks you through cold storage, step by step. It’s designed for people storing large amounts of bitcoin who are willing to invest some time and money for very high-security storage.
We’re happy to offer our beta release as a gift to the bitcoin community: https://glacierprotocol.org

Critique my cold storage procedure..

It's really overdue that I move my Bitcoin offline. It's a nerve wrecking thought but needs to be done. Before I go through it though I wrote down my procedure and I am asking the community for help in finding any vulnerabilities or tips on what I can do better.
Thanks
Bitcoin Cold Storage Procedure
  1. Bought new $200 toshiba laptop from Best buy. It's only purpose will be Bitcoin Wallet management
  2. Bought 4 USB sticks (each from a different manufacturer)
  3. Download Armory onto 1 of the 4 USB drives from an online computer
  4. Turn on new (offline) computer, Go through set up procedure and Disable Wifi
  5. Install Armory onto New (offline) computer (windows 8 OS) from USB drive
  6. Create encrypted Wallet
  7. Create Fragmented Paper Back up (w/ Secure Print) with cable connected printer
  8. Create Personal Paper Back up (w /Secure Print) with cable connected printer
  9. Test the paper Backups
  10. Back up encrypted wallets to the other (3) USB sticks.
  11. 1 USB stick goes in a safe, 1 goes to a family member, 1 stays accessible to me
  12. Create watching only wallet from offline computer and transfer it to USB stick I used to install armory client
  13. Import watching only copy onto online computer, Wait for synch
  14. Send a test amount of BTC to an address generated by offline wallet
  15. confirm it transferred successfully by checking watching only wallet and on Blockchain.info
  16. Send the rest of Bitcoin to cold storage Wallet
  17. Again confirm it’s been transferred
  18. Pass out Fragmented Back ups to trusted Friends/Family
  19. Personal back up also in safe with 1 of the USB sticks.

'What's wrong with my current cold storage method?' - an examination of potential weaknesses in the most common cold storage methods

Today we are going to discuss cold storage and some specific problems with cold storage. While this applies directly to the Secret Key portion of a key-pair; it also applies to the seed used to back up HD wallets and hardware wallets.
The best way to keep you seed/secret key safe is to have multiple copies in multiple locations perhaps with multiple formats and even better if the keys are split. However not everyone has access to multiple locations, or access to land long term, or more than one place to store their things. This is an examination of faults with individual methods; and not a comprehensive plan, obviously.
Not to say everything is all bad but there are many potential weakness out there, and some in the Bitcoin and crypto community like to know the edge cases of things.
I will also highlight some of the aspects of the Keyois Capsule which is a 'physical bitcoin'.
A physical Bitcoin is a cryptographic key pair, a physical key printed and affixed to what has always been before a coin. The first physical bitcoin coin was the Casascius coin, since then the world of physical bitcoin coins has blossomed as a fun part of the Bitcoin world.
We will focus on mediums relating to cold storage and not ones designed for more everyday use, but this applies to the seed you save to keep your everyday spending wallets safe and backed up.
We will assume you generated your keys securely and that you already have them on some medium. We will also have to ignore endpoint physical security because they can all be carried away the same. Remember your cell phone /hardware wallet/ computer client are only as good as where you put the backup seed phrase, which can be thought of as data much like the SK discussed below.
Written on a piece of paper
Printed on a piece of paper
On laminated paper
Engraved / etched/ ablated/ stamped on a piece of metal
Stored digitally on a computer
Stored digitally on CD, floppy disk, laserdisc, or mini-disc
Stored digitally on a flash drive
Backups are essential for digital data Computer code for performing operations can be corrupted in transfer or in operation. Special systems exist and procedures help data to last longer. For ideas, see this archive.gov page Remember to store in multiple locations. You can lose everything in single structure
A physical bitcoin coin
**What can solve most of these problems? A combination of good backup procedures and encryption. **
If you have permeant access to more than one location (people who live in big cities, without family or cars have a hard time with this) or have people you trust with your money (don't) then look into using some form of Multi-signature option.
The Keyois Capsule is a crypto piggy bank; it can be funded from the outside but you to break it open to get them out. You give me a BIP38 encrypted key pair (well the address not the public key) and I engrave it in this tamper evident and time resistant package. You still have to hold on to the pass phrase that allows you to decrypt it; that is however the same problem as all methods with BIP38 encryption. How to store this without having to trust anyone but still being assured of it's security?
  • Engraving, embossing, or stamping on a sheet of metal is one option; however the metals that are easiest to stamp are ones that melt in a house fire. They could be put in a glass jar that's filled with aerogel and buried. These is the best readily available option for most people but it really can be tedious. - This puts you back at anyone who can see it can steal it so dip in plastic dip, wrap in duct tape, bake in clay, encase in concrete, whatever just don't leave unencrypted keys visible!
  • The cryptosteel is another ready-made option
  • Have the words etched onto glass at home with off the shelf products; but be carful of this idea because the glass can shatter from impact and heat or even sudden temperature changes
  • Anodize the words yourself on a pieces of metal, there used to be a service to help use your home printer to print the words with some chemicals you can buy
  • Bake them in clay, then encase that in epoxy resin so it can't shatter. then paint the outside, in the future you can solvent the paint off and see the written seed
  • Use a combination of techniques to split the seed so that it is safe(because split and separated) and redundant (because backed up).
The most cost effective way for a 'normal' person (without their own land, without more than one location, and who cannot trust anyone else with their funds) to keep their backup seed/ secret key safe from damage from the elements would probably to buy a stamping kit and hammer and some stainless steel sheet or bar, Aluminium can be okay if you have the right alloy but better safe than sorry.

'What is wrong with my current cold storage method' - an examination of potential weaknesses in the most common cold storage methods

Today we are going to discuss cold storage and some specific problems with cold storage. While this applies directly to the Secret Key portion of a key-pair; it also applies to the seed used to back up HD wallets and hardware wallets.
Not to say everything is all bad but there are many potential weakness out there, and some in the Bitcoin and crypto community like to know the edge cases of things.
I will also highlight some of the aspects of the Keyois Capsule which is a 'physical bitcoin'.
A physical Bitcoin is a cryptographic key pair, a physical key printed and affixed to what has always been before a coin. The first physical bitcoin coin was the Casascius coin, since then the world of physical bitcoin coins has blossomed as a fun part of the Bitcoin world.
We will focus on mediums relating to cold storage and not ones designed for more everyday use, but this applies to the seed you save to keep your everyday spending wallets safe and backed up.
We will assume you generated your keys securely and that you already have them on some medium. We will also have to ignore endpoint physical security because they can all be carried away the same. Remember your cell phone /hardware wallet/ computer client are only as good as where you put the backup seed phrase, which can be thought of as data much like the SK discussed below.
Written on a piece of paper
Printed on a piece of paper
On laminated paper
Engraved / etched/ ablated/ stamped on a piece of metal
Stored digitally on a computer
Stored digitally on CD, floppy disk, laserdisc, or mini-disc
Stored digitally on a flash drive
Backups are essential for digital data Computer code for performing operations can be corrupted in transfer or in operation. Special systems exist and procedures help data to last longer. For ideas, see this archive.gov page Remember to store in multiple locations. You can lose everything in single structure
A physical bitcoin coin
What can solve most of these problems? A combination of good backup procedures and encryption.
If you have permeant access to more than one location (people who live in big cities, without family or cars have a hard time with this) or have people you trust with your money (don't) then look into using some form of Multi-signature option.
The Keyois Capsule is a crypto piggy bank; it can be funded from the outside but you to break it open to get them out. You give me a BIP38 encrypted key pair (well the address not the public key) and I engrave it in this tamper evident and time resistant package. You still have to hold on to the pass phrase that allows you to decrypt it; that is however the same problem as all methods with BIP38 encryption. How to store this without having to trust anyone but still being assured of it's security?
  • Engraving, embossing, or stamping on a sheet of metal is one option; however the metals that are easiest to stamp are ones that melt in a house fire. They could be put in a glass jar that's filled with aerogel and buried. These is the best readily available option for most people but it really can be tedious.
  • The cryptosteel is another ready-made option
  • Have the words etched onto glass at home with off the shelf products; but be carful of this idea because the glass can shatter from impact and heat or even sudden temperature changes
  • Anodize the words yourself on a pieces of metal, there used to be a service to help use your home printer to print the words with some chemicals you can buy
  • Bake them in clay, then encase that in epoxy resin so it can't shatter. then paint the outside, in the future you can solvent the paint off and see the written seed
  • Use a combination of techniques to split the seed so that it is safe(because split and separated) and redundant (because backed up).
Characters stamped on Aluminium is probably the most cost effective way to keep a secret key or seed safe from fire and rot.

[Tutorial] Creating a XMG specific, secure, air-gapped, Cold Storage Address/Wallet

Forward
This is a tutorial about securing an XMG wallet in an air-gapped, cold storage manner. Before you begin and, if you choose to proceed, while you are doing the steps, take a moment to be aware of what you are doing. This method is ultra secure and is based on a method that has been used to protect millions in BTC and other coins. But all that aside, part of this method is maintaining physical access to encrypted files, maybe for months or years ... keep this in mind and alter the method's storage options to suit your unique situation. In other words, try your best not to become this guy.
The Who, What, and Why?
​Protecting your cryptocurrency is a very important step when you enter the world of crypto. There are dozens of way to do this, with varying levels of security and varying levels of acceptance across the mainstream coins as well as the altcoins. Obviously, Bitcoin (BTC) is the primary coin upon which the value of all other altcoins are based, but it is also the main coin for which security protocols are developed. But just because you don't own 20BTC with a value of $200,000.00 doesn't mean you shouldn't get into the habit of securely handling your wallet contents and investments, which includes Magi Coin.
One of the better way of securing crypto is placing those coins into a cold storage that is "air-gapped" from the internet. Air-gapped systems are computer systems, or specially designed devices, that are completely disconnected from ​the internet. This protects against outside actors being able to access anything you store behind the air-gap. If nothing is ever detected, then no one would ever know it exists. There is a saying in the crypto community ... "if you don't have the key to your coins, then you don't own them according to the blockchain." This includes coins in Bittrex, Coinbase, GDAX, etc. If you can't send and receive the coin at will, or you don't own the key to where your coins are stored, then you don't own it ...period. As it is said, while inaccurate in real law, is totally applicable here, possession is 9/10ths of the law. These methods not only give you, and ONLY you, the keys to your coins but also protects them from company hacks, fraud, bad faith actions, and simple electronic glitches.
There are several pre-made products that allow storage of various coins, but your personal choice of altcoin might not have implemented support for these devices. As an example, a few of the more well known devices are the Ledger S Nano and the TREZOR. While dedicated devices are one solid way to secure your crypto, they can also be very expensive. I mean, $70.00-100.00 USD can buy a lot of XMG!
With these things in mind, this tutorial is one way to create a protected "cold storage," off-line*, m-wallet to help protect your investment. If followed, as is, when you finish this tutorial you should have a minimum of two local digital copies of a cold storage wallet for your XMG, as well as one (or more) copies stored in the cloud server of your choice.
  • Please note, coins stored in an offline wallet, while are exceedingly safe, will not stake. Take this into consideration when making decisions about this, or other, protected storage options.
Getting Started:
Cloud Storage Setup (Optional and can be completed after the main instructions)
If you decide to use a cloud storage like Google or Amazon, or even a local homebrew like Nextcloud, you need to make sure that access to said cloud drive is secure. You do this by signing up for a new account, using a username that you only use with that single service and a password that is a string of random words or a phrase. If two-factor authentication is available, use it.
If using random words for your "phrase", take a dictionary, and turn to random pages. While on these pages, close your eyes and put your finger on the page. The word your finger is closest too is the word you write down. Repeat this 10-12 times.
If using a phrase from a book, make sure it is something you will be able to remember, and it should be a minimum of 18 words long. Write it down and put it in a safe deposit box if you aren't sure you can remember it. Later, I'll discuss some other novel ways to secure a passphrase.
Once this is done, you will log out of the drive and proceed with the next step.
Note: This step isn't necessary, there are alternatives to using cloud services that are just as secure, but it is an acceptable option.
Creating the air-gapped Cold Storage Wallet (CSA)
First, download the m-wallet setup files from m-core.org and copy them to a flashdrive that has been freshly erased and formatted. If you are hyper-vigilant regarding security, secure erase the drive using your regular OS.
Then, choose one of the many "Live Operating System" choices out there. This is otherwise known as a "trial" use of the operating system that doesn't involve installing it on your hard drives/SSDs. These are typically images that are burned to a CD/DVD or written to a USB drive, then your computer is booted from this image. The OS creates a RAM-based virtual drive to run from and then uses the USB or CD like a storage device to hold files. When you turn off the computer, any in the RAM is lost, this is where the security comes into play. This allows you to load up an operating system without leaving physical data writes to any physical media.
Once you have your USB or CD Live OS, take a computer that is turned off and do the following steps to create the "air-gap" ...
  1. Remove any USB drives (flash, SSD, or HDD) from the computer.
  2. If you can physically remove the network card/dongle, do so.
  3. If you cannot physically remove the network/wifi device and you have a laptop that allows you to physically turn off the Wifi signal, so that instead.
  4. If connected with a network cable, disconnect this from the computer.
  5. Unplug the router that you typically connect to.
  6. Again, if you are hyper-vigilant, use a laptop and drive to some location where there is zero wifi signals and turn off your cell phone prior to going further.
These steps create the "air-gap" between you, the wallet data you will create, the computer, and anything that might identify that you are the owner of the address/wallet we are going to create.
Now, start up your live CD/USB, follow the directions and when it is loaded you want to put the flashdrive that is holding the wallet program into the computer. Expand it and install it. When it is installed, start it up and allow it to run. The wallet will not sync, clearly, but what it will do is create a new valid XMG address and the wallet.dat file. Cut and paste the new address into a text file and copy it your flash drive.
Now, go through the process of encrypting the wallet, which if done thought the wallet program. Pick a VERY strong phrase, that is completely random, for the encryption protocol. Make it 10-18 words long. DO NOT use the same phase that you used for the Cloud Services if you decided to go that route. Write this passphrase down and put it somewhere safe, without it everything you are doing is pointless, it will be the only way to access your XMG cold storage.
Navigate to the location where your OS stores the m-wallet's wallet.dat file and copy it to your flash drive. If you have access to some other device for storage, make a second copy at this time just to be safe. Remember, once we turn the computer off all of this data will disappear forever. You MUST make a copy of the wallet.dat to a secondary device to ensure you still have it when the computer is shut down. Verify twice so you don't cry once!
This encrypted wallet.dat and the address you pasted into the text file, is the basis for your cold storage. Sending XMG to the address places it into the blockchain and later, when you decide to access your cold storage, the wallet.dat will sync with the blockchain and show your stored balance.
Put a copy of the encrypted wallet.dat file on various drives, put it on the cloud services you signed up for, or burn a copy to a CD and hide it. Some people suggest sending a copy to friends or family, but I disagree. Looking at what bitcoin has done, plus the media it has garnered, asking friends and family to hold copies could alert them to your financial holdings. This could make you a target. If you want to make sure someone knows in the event of your untimely death, put it in a will or a "last wishes" document that explains what the data is and how to decrypt it.
One way to store your wallet.dat info, that takes it up a notch, is to buy a special USB drive that includes built in encryption ... that's right, you're encrypting your encrypted file. One of the better ones is the following.
​Apricorn Aegis Secure Key 3Z​​​​ $70-75.00 Con: As expensive as a hardware wallet. Pro: Can be used for other sensitive, non-crypto related, files​.
For myself, I just like to have a solid USB drive designed to withstand a nuclear blast. Well, not really, but it is pretty solid... I use this one.
​Corsair Flash Survivor Stealth ​32​GB​ $20-30.00 Con: Accessible by anyone who has the physical drive (but the wallet.dat file is encrypted, so that part is useless to the person without the passphrase). Pro: Will withstand far more than the average flash drive, you could bury it if you wanted.
Note: The links above go to Amazon, they do NOT contain any affiliate links and are merely shown as visual examples.
Using the Cold Storage Address (CSA)
Simply send coins to the address. As I stated, these coins will not stake, but they are secure from nearly anything when it comes to digital theft. The coins in your ​CSA will be on the blockchain, but no one can access them without your passphrase AND the wallet.dat file. As such, make sure you keep your passphrase secure as well, keep it in at least three spots that only you know about. These spots could be inside a book, a safe deposit box, or merely glued/written under your desk drawer. You could even take it one step further and encrypt the passphrase with an old school book cipher using a book at the library. This might be overkill, but in a rapidly expanding digital world, old school can often be a great way to keep secrets safe.
Thawing your Cold Storage Address (CSA)
The process to thaw your CSA is basically the reverse of how you created, however driving to the middle of nowhere isn't required. You can thaw your CSA on your regular computer, or any other computer. The steps are as follows...
Before you start, while isn't strictly needed, it is a good idea to disconnect your computer from the internet again and reboot your Live OS. This prevents any digital fingerprints on your regular computer, plus it won't interfere with the m-wallet already installed on your computer (if there is one).
  1. Grab the m-wallet software fresh from the m-core.org website​.
  2. Install it using the normal steps. (then disconnect from the internet if you are using a live CD) ​3. Run m-wallet until it starts syncing, then shut it down.​
  3. Navigate to the place where your OS stores the wallet.dat file and remove it. You can delete it, or you can save it, but it really isn't needed.
  4. Get your passphrase from your hidden place, as well as a copy of your encrypted wallet.dat file from your CSA.
  5. Copy the encrypted wallet.dat file into its proper location in your OS (where you deleted the other one) ((reconnect the internet at this point if using a live CD))
  6. Restart m-wallet, it will load the encrypted wallet.dat.
  7. Decrypt the wallet using your passphrase.
  8. Voila, you have now thawed your CSA and can use/spend/trade/stake the coins stored there like normal.
Extras:
List of good live operating systems ...
If anyone see any factual errors in this tutorial, please let me know, thanks!
If you use this and like it, think about sending a small thank you ... in XMG, of course, and, just FYI, it's going into a CSA.

Glacier: A step-by-step protocol for high-security cold storage of bitcoins

Many people are interested in storing their own bitcoins rather than using an online wallet, either for security reasons or on principle.
But it’s harder than it looks. Techniques such as offline key generation are great, but not bulletproof; sophisticated malware might use WiFi even if it’s disabled in the OS, or write keys to the hard drive for re-transmission later when the system is online. Hardware wallets are great too, but how certain are you that an undiscovered vulnerability isn’t being exploited to grab your private keys over that USB cable?
When you’re dealing with large sums of money, relatively small risks such as these may feel unacceptably large -- and these examples are just the tip of the iceberg.
We made Glacier to help people navigate around these risks. Glacier is a free open-source protocol that walks you through cold storage, step by step. It’s designed for people storing large amounts of bitcoin who are willing to invest some time and money for very high-security storage.
We’re happy to offer our beta release as a gift to the bitcoin community: https://glacierprotocol.org

Ripple wallet ledger app on windows 7(32bit) still not working!!!!

I had to sign up to reddit just for this one. Had the ledger nano s for a month and a half now and still can't get the ripple wallet to work. Its the app on windows that is failing not the app on the nano. Have uninstalled both apps numerous times, you uninstalled the app on windows loads, reinstalled the latest x86 updated app from github (20th december 2017) still no luck. I use to get the app to blank screen on me for the first week, which at the time seemed like progress but for the last few weeks it's just decides to open 3 instances of itself as displayed on the task manager, hogging up the cpu to 90% with no gui and then disappear. If you're gonna clone yourself at least stick around for a bit! this one doesn't work for me on windows 7 =setup_ledger_wallet_ripple_win_x86_1.0.3 neither does this one setup_ledger_wallet_ripple_win_x86 both the latest updated versions for windows. Funny thing is ripple is the most centralized decentralized crypto there is and its messing me around just like a bank or solicitor would. the irony! I thought ripple would be on point, not lagging behind the bitcoin,ethereum and stratis ledger wallet apps! its got nothing to do with turning browser support off,chrome open(or any other app including bitdefender=don't have it or antivirus/firewall as I have none or have it switched it off), usb cable,firmware(coz i've got the latest version). I've tried many, many times with basic system apps running , nothing else. The gui should load regardless right?I've been looking up this problem up for weeks and am thinking i'll have to get my xrps off binance and go down the cold storage usb toast wallet again. to be fair the nano ledger is just a special edition usb with a couple of "unhackable manual" click buttons. anyhow. any help much and really appreciated!

My first Quarter of a Bitcoin! Advice on safe practices is welcome!

Hello everyone.
I got into knowing bitcoin in early september 2017.
Wish I did earlier, but oh well.
After lots of reading at bitcoin.org, this subreddit, and watching several Andreas Antonopoulos videos, I was ready to put my plan into practice: getting my first quarter of a bitcoin.
I will describe what I did so far. Im open to any advice regarding safe practices!
1) Opened account on an exchange, deposited some fiat, bought some bitcoin.
2) created under windows an electrum wallet. Wrote down seed, set a password with over 128 bits of entropy (measured with rumkin password tester). Stored paper seed in safe place.
3) moved bitcoins from exchange to electrum.
4) repeated step 2 and practiced moving coins from one wallet to another back and forth, as well as figuring out confirmations, fees, etc.
After I got familiar with the stuff, started the real thing:
1) realized everything done under windows is likely compromised
2) created 2 live tails USBs with encrypted persistent storage, strictly following instructions on their website. Password for encrypted persistent storage is over 128 bits of entropy (measured with rumkin password tester).
3) 1 live tails USB is my air-gapped system. Never did and never will touch the internet (only boot with cables detached). There, I created an offline electrum wallet. Wrote down seed, set a password with over 128 bits of entropy (measured with rumkin password tester). Stored paper seed in safe place. Saved public keys in a text file.
4) the other live tails USB is my online system. Created a watch only wallet using cold wallet public keys. Saved one of the receiving adresses on txt file
5) sent all my coins that were under windows electrum wallet to cold storage adress created on the offline tails USB
6) created an android mycelium hot wallet. Wrote down seed, set PIN. Stored paper seed in safe place.
7) bought more bitcoin at the exchange, moved to hot mycelium wallet within 15 minutes (to quote Andreas, "15 minutes, in and out!")
8) right after, moved the coins from mycelium hot to tails offline cold storage
9) there they will stay. On to HODLIN my 0.25 btc !!!!!
All comments are welcome!
EDIT: Mycelium has a PIN, not strong password.

Please help testing Trezor support in Mycelium for Android

Hey fellow Trezor owners! We have been busy integrating native Trezor support into the mycelium wallet for Android. We would appreciate if some of you could help us testing if everything works fine. We did of course try everything internally already, but we do only have access to a limited variety of phone models for example. If you want to try, you have to join myceliums beta tester program. In order to get beta updates from Google play, please join the mycelium beta tester group on g+ and enable beta builds on the play store beta site
You can also read the code and build the app yourself from the repository on github
After installing the app, you can plug your Trezor in using an otg cable and your Trezor cable. Your phone needs to be able to act as a USB host. Either select cold storage from the main menu and chose Trezor to spend directly from the Trezor, or navigate to the accounts tab, tap the plus key icon, chose advanced and then Trezor to import one of your Trezor accounts. You will see the balance and be able to receive, if you want to spend from the imported account, you need to plug the Trezor in again. At this moment, it's not possible to init the Trezor via mycelium. The functions are also available in the testnet wallet by mycelium, and you can try stuff using your Trezor for testnet coins without risking money. You can obtain testnet coins through the mycelium wallet for testnet, just navigate to local trader (the buy / sell bitcoin button) and buy some from a bot called virtual trader, he gives them out for free.

Would you consider this secure cold storage?

I've had some bitcoin stored in various exchanges for a while, and I'm finally wanting to move it into cold storage. Would love some feedback on one potential solution I've come up with using a raspberry pi and mycelium entropy.
I have a Raspberry Pi which I run as a full node using a 64gb SD card, a spare 8gb SD card, and a mycelium entropy device. I plan to put a fresh install of raspbarian on the 8gb SD card, I will then power off the full node and remove the ethernet cable. I'll remove the 64gb SD card and replace it with the 8gb SD card, power it, plug in the mycelium entropy and copy the generated wallet image to the 8gb SD card and UBS stick as backup. I'll repeat the mycelium entropy step several times to create several wallets of specific denominations, so as to have my holdings spread across multiple wallets. Once complete, I remove the 8gb SD card and the USB stick, store them securely in separate locations, then plug the 64gb SD card back in and fire up my bitcoin node.
Would you consider this to be secure cold storage? Or are there some gaping holes in my plan.
Thanks in advance.
-I also have some hexadecimal dice, so I would like to experiment with generating some wallets with these as well.

Let me see if I have this cold storage idea down.

Hey Guys -
I'm getting ready to send some coins to cold storage, and I just want to run my understanding of the concept by you experts before I risk losing something doing it. Perhaps this will turn into a resource for other beginning cold wallet-keepers.
The wallet file itself is what gives the holder the ability to transfer bitcoins. Now I'm actually not entirely sure about this either, since I've read stories, like the one a day or so ago, about people who have coins stolen from their wallets (in this case it was a "brainwallet") by bots that crawl the blockchain, guessing passwords. Still not entirely clear how that happened if he was holding his wallet file and only addresses are present on the blockchain.
So anyway, to keep coins entirely secure, you have to make an address that, ironically, will hold NO coins until you are ready to spend them. You boot into a LiveCD or something to avoid virii or trojans that may be present already on your system, open a network connection just long enough to download the latest copy of the bitcoin software, disonnect, and then install and run the bitcoin software.
Generate an address, write it down, take a screenshot of it and print it out, copy it and paste it to a text file, whatever, so you don't lose it.
Then find the wallet.dat file. TrueCrypt a copy of it and save the archive to USB stick, burn a copy to CD/DVD, email a copy to a relative you trust, print out a hexdump (OK that last one may be a bit excessive), do whatever you can not to lose it. Remember and appropriately safeguard the password.
Shut down the PC, destroying all information held in memory. The only wallet that can receive your coins is no longer able to receive anything.
THEN
(and this is the part that threw me for a loop at first) send your coins to the address that nothing on the bitcoin network is aware of. You're essentially sending them to an address that does not yet exist, since it was never connected to the internet during it's short (so far) life.
The coins hang in limbo, undeliverable, for however long you want to wait.
When you want to spend them, you decrypt the wallet, install bitcoin into a network-connected PC, overwrite the default wallet.dat with yours from storage, and then start the application.
Download all the blockchain data, send your coins to wherever you want to send them, and then destroy the wallet.dat file as it is no longer usable. The network has knowledge of it, therefore even if you are the only one with the actual file, apparently thieves have ways to generate it if they know the address (? still not sure if this is true. Anyway, you can never use that address or wallet file again, so if you're not spending everything in the wallet, you'll have to have another cold storage address ready to send the remaining balance to when you finish.)
That's it. My plan ATM is to generate a bunch of addresses and wallet files at once so I have them ready, so I am going to boot into the LiveCD, install bitcoin, save the address and wallet file, uninstall bitcoin, reinstall bitcoin, generate and save the new address and wallet file, etc etc until I have like ten address/wallet combinations saved. I will not use the same TruCrypt password twice, nor will I save multiple wallet files on the same physical media.
Then I will consume one address as a test address, sending .001 BTC or whatever, to make sure that I am able to receive and spend bitcoins this way.
Does this sound like I've got it?
Edit: After everybody's helpful comments, I think I have a good process for cold storage now. A lot of people recommended I go to a site and create a paper wallet via javascript, but just to be sure, I am going to do this:
Boot into a Live CD with the ethernet cable out, the USB Wifi dongle in, and the hard disks disconnected inside the case.
Download and install the bitcoin client and sublimetext (you'll see why later)
Disconnect the Wifi dongle.
Use the bitcoin client to generate eleven public/private key pairs and save them to a text file.
Copy this text file once, and name the two files "public-priv.txt" and "rivate.txt"
Open each file in SublimeText and (using multi-line selections instead of doing it line-by-line manually, which is more prone to human error) delete the last x characters from each line of the public-priv.txt" file. Only the private key will be truncated; my goal is not to have a full copy of the private address in a single file. It's OK if the public address is complete.
In the "rivate.txt" file, delete all but the last x+3 characters in each line, giving me a file that completes each line in the first file, with 3 characters of overlap to confidently identify which line goes with which line and to make sure that I have the correct matching file for each if I choose to do this again.
I now have two text files that, combined, will give me access to ten addresses. I copy one file to each of two USB sticks and then shut down the machine.
I reconnect everything and boot normally. The printer is now available to me, as it is connected via ethernet cable. I insert the first USB stick and print the file on it to our shared printer (I have no printer at home). I print five copies. I erase the USB stick.
On the way home from work, I stop at Kinko's and print the OTHER text file, five copies again, and, after confirming that the last three letters of each line match the first three of each line on the second document (via simple sunlight), erase that USB stick.
I go home and staple five sets of these pairs together and file them in five secure locations. Or keep them separate and file them in ten secure locations.
I send .001 BTC to the first address to check that it works, and if it does, I cross out that address and send the .001 BTC to the second address. I then send whatever else I want to store to the other addresses, distributing equally so as not to put everything in one address.
I check them once a year for wear and tear, fading ink, etc.
Sound good?

Cold storage that NEVER needs the internet?

Hello, I'm new to crypto and this sub. Thanks in advance for your help!
So I'm figuring out cold storage and learning about Raspberry Pi, and I've found a few descriptions about how to set up a Raspberry Pi cold storage wallet. This one seems pretty good, but it requires a Pi model B so an Ethernet cable can be connected for the wallet installation. I'm wondering if there's a wallet/setup configuration that would allow me to install from USB without ever connecting the Pi to the internet, for setup/maintenance/operation or anything else. Can a model A become a cold storage wallet or is this not currently possible?

Easy cold storage for all who keep money on exchanges

There is no reason to trust a third party such as an exchange with your money. Here is how anyone can make their own secure cold storage. All you need is a computer, a blank 1 GB or larger USB drive or a disc burner and either a printer or two or three USB drives of any size. This is not perfect security but it's a lot better than Gox.
Download http://www.linuxliveusb.com and make a bootable USB drive, I suggest Ubuntu and use 64 bit if your motherboard has uEFI. Alternatively, you can download an ISO of the distribution and burn it to a disc. Save a copy of https://www.bitaddress.org/bitaddress.org-v2.8.1-SHA1-a6e63f2712851710255a27fa0f22ef7833c2cd07.html to a USB drive by going to the website and doing File > Save As (HTML only) from your browser. Shutdown and disconnect from the Internet by unplugging any network cables, if applicable, from your computer. Boot the Linux drive and choose to try Linux in live mode.
