I am a cryptocurrency enthusiast and hobbyist. One of the biggest concerns I have with cryptocurrency is that it is too easy to be stolen in it’s digital format. Thousands of people, including myself, have lost cryptocurrency to theft either on their own computer or a third party’s servers. The most famous is probably the Mt. Gox hack, which saw millions of dollars of Bitcoin stolen. There have been many other exchanges and services that have been attacked as well since then. I started looking for ways to secure cryptocurrencies offline without ever having to reveal your private keys to potential theft.
A paper wallet allows you to store both the private key for a given address securely offline in an analog format. I started looking at the Bitaddress Bitcoin paper wallet as a viable way to store cryptocurrency offline in an analog format. After some successful tests I worked with a designer friend who helped create some custom designs for the original Vircurvault Bitcoin Paper Wallet. Then I started looking for paper wallets for other cryptocurrencies.
I started selling the Vircurvault wallet printed and laminated for a short period of time, but ultimately ran into issues with home printer quality and ink prices that just didn’t make it a viable business venture with the current design of the wallet. Now you can follow the directions on this site and make your own Vircurvault Version 1. Some day I hope to make a Vircurvault Version 2 that is a better solution for secure offline cryptocurrency storage. Until then enjoy the custom designs we came up with for the Vircurvault v1!
We thank you for your interest in the Vircurvault Bitcoin Paper Wallet and our Custom Vanity Bitcoin Address Service.
