Ethereum Paper Wallet

PRODUCT TYPE: Digital Collectible

This card is called a paper wallet. It represents an address on the Ethereum blockchain where we have stored digital assets for you.

This card comes preloaded with 1,000,000 Gwei, or 0.001 ether (Ξ). Gwei is a denomination of ether (like a cent is a denomination of USD).

1 Gwei = 0.000000001 ether.

Each card belongs to a unique address on the blockchain, and each address has unique public and private keys (the QR codes). The private key is used to access the wallet so it comes obscured for security reasons. Do not reveal your private key to anyone who you do not want to access your wallet.

You can think of the public key as a deposit box where you can accept ether from anyone.

The activity of your wallet is publicly viewable by anyone by using chain monitoring services like etherscan. Simply scan the QR code and copy/paste the wallet address ("0x...") into the etherscan search bar. You can even use this method to track the history of these funds from our wallet to this one.


More in-depth details are in the tabs below.


Important:

1) This card was designed only for education about the concept and process of using cryptocurrency. Please don't use this card to store considerable value.

2) If you accept deposits into your address, make sure the private key is obscured.

3) The information presented on this page is for educational purposes and should not be taken as investment advice. Please conduct your own research before making investment decisions regarding cryptocurrencies.

4) Like everything else in our shop, we pay carbon offsets each month to keep our subscription box carbon neutral. Likewise, for this month we also paid to offset the energy usage of transferring the funds to these wallets.

Using your paper wallet

CHECK YOUR BALANCE

Firstly, all blockchain data is public, so you'll always be able to verify your ether balance at public blockchain sites (we recommend blockchain.info). You may need to scan your code first to convert it to a text string that can be copied and pasted.

 

GET A WALLET APP

Next, if you plan on using your cryptocurrency online, collecting NFTs (non-fungible tokens), or using dapps (decentralized apps), we recommend using a software wallet app (we like metamask). This will allow you to import your valuables, keep them secure, and integrate with most popular blockchain apps simply.

 

DEPOSITS

When receiving ether, have the sender scan your public key with their app (there are many apps that allow the sending of crypto). Be sure they don't scan the private key.

 

WITHDRAWALS

If you want to import your balance to another wallet, connect to a crypto marketplace, or withdraw funds in a different currency, follow the directions of the app of your choice and scan the private code to connect to your address.

 

IMPORTANT TIPS

1. An ether wallet can only receive ether. Only send ether (ETH) to this wallet—not bitcoin (BTC) or any other cryptocurrency—otherwise those funds may be irretrievably lost. If you plan to use other types of coins, you'll need to generate a specific wallet for each.

2. Keep your private code safe. Anyone who can scan your private code is able to withdraw your ether. This paperwallet was designed for educational purposes and demonstration of concept; it was not designed for security. Hardware wallets are available for this purpose.

3. If you decide to spend it, do it all at once. When making a transaction on a blockchain, part of the process is a change output (just like getting change for cash). Paper wallets are not able to generate a change address, so the difference in funds will be lost. It is best to either spend the total amount all at once so you don't require a change address, or send your balance to a software wallet which can create change addresses.

4. If this card is lost or damaged, we cannot replace it or retrieve the balance. We generated these keys offline and deleted the database after printing. We have no way of accessing or replacing any of our paper wallets, their addresses, or the balance stored therein.

5. There are transaction fees for Ethereum. This is one of the biggest headaches about cryptocurrency right now and one that is in the process of being improved. Each transaction must be verified on the blockchain by “miners”. These miners are rewarded in cryptocurrency, and is usually called “gas” which is paid by the person initiating the transaction. These fees can fluctuate with network demand. Keep gas fees in mind if you plan on spending crypto. 

About blockchain

Blockchain

A blockchain is more than just cryptocurrencies, it is a type of database that is revolutionizing industries and reshaping the way we think about money, data, and security.

A blockchain differs from a typical database in the way it stores information. As new data is entered, it is cryptographically connected to the previously entered data, which is similarly connected to the data before it. By doing this, all information in the blockchain is permanent, tamper-proof, and secure.

Furthermore, many blockchains are not run by a single person or entity, but by all users collectively. This means all information in the blockchain is transparent and viewable by anyone. This is called decentralization.

Some blockchains produce virtual currencies called cryptocurrencies which are impossible to counterfeit or double-spend. Many blockchains act as the public ledger for all transactions of their cryptocurrency.

Blockchain technology will make its way into various aspects of society where reliability, transparency, and security of information are important factors.

An entire decentralized financial ecosystem has developed in recent years that may disrupt the traditional banking system but finance is just the beginning. Everything from solar power to coffee supply chains are currently being improved with blockchain technology.

about ethereum

Ethereum

Ethereum is currently the 2nd most popular blockchain after Bitcoin. In many ways, Ethereum was built by improving the Bitcoin model so that it could be more functional.

Bitcoin was developed to become a new currency; a digital analog of gold. There is a finite supply and it is primarily used as a store of value. Its blockchain stored the transactional data and not much more. People began to understand the potential of the blockchain that Bitcoin ran upon, and Ethereum was developed to utilize the blockchain as a tamper-proof storage system for all sorts of financial contracts and applications.

Ethereum has prompted many new projects and Dapps (decentralized apps) that take advantage of the Ethereum blockchain. Prospects for its usefulness are evident in the exponential growth in value that ether has gained.

Ether (currency code ETH) is the virtual currency that is a product of the blockchain in order to reward the participants for validating transactions. As the Ethereum network has become more popular, the value of ether in terms of dollars has risen dramatically.
