Took a note from you all! 24 word seed phrase is now safe from fire, water, corrosion, and if anyone wants it, it’s heavy enough to hurt them bad when thrown ;) Stainless Steel Seed FTW all the way to the moon! Oh, and HODL! (Ledger Nano S for scale)

  1. Add a passphrase as your “25th” word which you keep in your head. Store the majority of the stash there so any thieves will only get the tiny decoy amount stored on the original 24 word wallet. Make a duplicate and keep it in a separate location.

  2. Nice. I like that you used hex bolt/nut. Makes it look so pro.

    I suppose using torq bolt/nut would confound thieves a bit longer.

    Also, if not done already, look at using a passphrase.

  3. My current backup system saves actual wallets, with tons of redundancy and security.

    But I’m looking into using seed phrases instead right now as an additional layer of backup, so I did a test: created a wallet, saved its seed, transferred some BTC to one of the addresses, then on a separate PC, used the seed to start a new wallet/restore it (the only information saved/transferred was the seed, the wallet file is imagined lost here).

    But then the new wallet was empty. Actually getting the actual (json) wallet file and opening *that* did show the coins, however. Why was this?

    Did I maybe need to wait some more before the coins would show up on the seed-phrase-created wallet? This was using Electrum.

  4. I like this, very simple and effective. Like you, I bought a cheap metal punch set, but instead of washers, also bought a 3mm thick stainless steel plate to stamp the seed on. Total spend was $20 plus an hours work. If anyone goes down the route of stamping metal (whether a sheet or washers), it is massively easier when you use a big, heavy metal object underneath. I used the flat sides on a 10kg barbell weight.

  5. Ah, here it is, my house all burnt down, but my seed has survived, so let’s just put it into this here new ledger. So let’s just unscrew it and see the words, uh it’s a little stuck, common, there we go *slip*, oopsie all the washers are spilled all over the ground, that’s ok, I’ll just collect them and ask reddit how to unscrable 24 words.

    …I’d feel much better about having my seed stamped on a solid single piece steel plate.

  6. How is this fire proof? Metal melts at 1000 degrees, and if the room this was stored in flashed over, temperatures would well exceed that. This in a fire resistant safe however = better fireproof
