Paper Wallet

A paper wallet refers to a method of storing the private key of a cryptocurrency offline, typically by writing or printing it on a piece of paper. This method is considered to be one of the most secure ways to store crypto assets, as it eliminates the risk of hacking or other digital threats.

A paper wallet typically includes the private key, which is used to access and control the cryptocurrency, and the corresponding public key, which is used to receive the cryptocurrency.

Once the paper wallet is created, the funds can be transferred to the public address, and the paper wallet can be stored in a safe and secure location.
