Step 1. Security Checklist

The first step is to download this website from github and open the index.html file directly on your computer.

Step 2. Generate a new address

Move your mouse or input text to generate a new address.

Step 3. Print out your paper wallet

Click the paper wallet tab and print the page on high quality setting. Never save as a file because it is far more likely to be hacked than a piece of paper.

Step 4. Fold your paper wallet

Fold your new paper wallet following the lines. Fold in half lengthwise, and then in three widthwise.
You can insert one side inside the other to lock the wallet.

Step 5. Share your public address

Use your Spacecoin address to receive coins.

Step 6. Keep your private key secret

The private key is the actual key to the coins. If someone was to obtain it, they would have full control of the coins.

Consider testing with a small amount before storing large amounts.

How do I make a wallet using dice? What is B6?
An important part of creating a crypto-currency wallet is ensuring the random numbers used to create the wallet are truly random. Physical randomness is better than computer generated pseudo-randomness. The easiest way to generate physical randomness is with dice. To create a crypto-currency private key you only need one six sided die which you roll 99 times. Stopping each time to record the value of the die. When recording the values follow these rules: 1=1, 2=2, 3=3, 4=4, 5=5, 6=0. By doing this you are recording the big random number, your private key, in B6 or base 6 format. You can then enter the 99 character base 6 private key into the text field above and click View Details. You will then see the public address associated with your private key. You should also make note of your private key in WIF format since it is more widely used.
