pockets safety – Suggestion for Airgap Bitcoin Core – Feedback?
Lesson realized the arduous means: I misplaced a small worth of bitcoins because of foolishly backing up non-public keys to a file which was uploaded to a cloud server. My pockets was once bitcoin core.
Proper now my keys are in electrum with an air gapped laptop computer pockets and a watching pockets.
I might want to make use of bitcoin core as a result of having my very own blockchain is preferable.
I do know you should utilize bitkey, however as a Home windows person, however it appears too complicated.
I am contemplating the next resolution, and would welcome feedback.
Presently, I nonetheless run bitcoin core with an empty pockets, on my desktop PC linked to the web. The blockchain is on a separate SSD disk and I run the empty pockets to maintain the blockchain updated.
I’d then hold a core pockets holding the keys to my cash, on the air gapped laptop computer. Once I wish to ship or obtain bitcoins I’d transfer the SSD to the laptop computer. The SSD would use a SATA to USB connector, so it will be a simple plug in. As quickly as I might carried out the ship or obtain I’d transfer the SSD again to the web PC.
I assume that the blockchain on the SSD would resynch the ship and obtain transactions.
I might use Electrum Private Server, however this implies working different stuff which I do not perceive. Armory is another choice, however I might want to stay with core.
Is my strategy possible? Safe? Overkill?
