Offline storage -
One of the most secure forms of storing bitcoins is via a cold wallet also known
as ofﬂine storage. With a cold wallet you use a computer, like a $200-
(1)Transfer the address and transaction generator code via USB to the ofﬂine computer.
(2)Create the private keys and store them in a .pdf, .txt, etc. ﬁle.
(3)Create a TrueCrypt volume and if desired a hidden volume.
(4)Place the ﬁles containing the private keys into the TrueCrypt volume. I like to place the public keys in the main folder, along with some dummy private keys, and the other private keys in the hidden folder.
(5)Transfer the TrueCrypt volume via USB to an online computer.
(6)Store the TrueCrypt volume in many places such as Dropbox, Amazon Cloud, Google Drive, Gmail, multiple USB sticks, email to friends, etc.
