Monero Cold Walet

My Monero Experience

The Taushet USB Monero Cold Wallet Generator is a pre-packaged, pre-hashed and pre-zipped collection of the tools required to make a secure wallet that only requires a single checking/security hash. It takes around 10 minutes to make a secure cold wallet. The tool has been hashed and verified by many community members (see here).
The full instructions can be found on the reddit post,

What you need:
  • 1 x
  • 3 x USB thumbdrives
How to use:
  1. download!iQ1QwACY!63LgepwldjgfBkH8WaXxyGPQ4f5JOvg54Zd4vhtwQdw
  2. Physically disconnect from the internet.
  3. Check that the hash (md5) of the file matches those on the reddit post.

MD5 ( = 7e8923a66f8165b890177a34559b694c

  1. Extract the zip file, which contains: slacko64-6.3.0.iso, Rufus-2.11.exe, monero-wallet-generator-master (dir), and this ReadMe.txt.

  1. Make a bootable USB of the ISO using Rufus 2.11. Agree to all the default settings in the dialog boxes.

  1. Drag the monero-wallet-generator-master directory to the USB drive.

  1. Reboot using the USB into PuppyLinux (hold down F12 during boot to select boot drive)
press f12 repeatedly on startup
  1. Open the monero-wallet-generator.html file in the directory, generate the wallet seed and keys
  2. Save the seed, address and keys to the second USB drive. Copy/paste, don't type. This is you digital vault, not to be used until fund extraction.
  3. Write down the seed three times on a single sheet of paper. This is your physical vault.
  4. Save the address (and maybe viewkey) to the third USB drive. This is your address usb, which can be used with relative abandon.
  5. Remove second and third USB drives.
  6. Wipe the first USB drive (containing the wallet generator and linux), or destroy it.
  7. Remove all USB drives.
  8. Reboot, reconnect internet.

You now have a cold wallet!

  1. Lots of people say bitcoin is anonymous but it is not, it is only pseudonymous. To send or receive money anonymously, BTC have to be exchanged to XMR and then XMR can be sent to a monero online wallet that can be accessed without any ID. That's the only way to stay safe.
