Tutorial: Import Paper Wallet

#1
Hi guys!
I making a tutorial on how to import your paper wallet's private key for the members who doesn't know how.

1st go to the WalletGenerator.net - Universal Paper wallet generator for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies https://paper.dstra.io/# and click the skip button.​

Now you will see the public and private key. The public key is the address that you want to receive your dstra coins and the private key is the one that you don't wan't to share to others. Because it's private. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Seriously don't share your private keys to others just keep it. If you want to print your paper wallet just click the print button. Or I would suggest that copy the details and paste it on notepad and boot up your dstra wallet. If you don't know how to set up your dstra wallet just click this link Tutorial: Set up Dstra wallet https://forum.dstra.io/threads/tutorial-set-up-dstra-wallet.91/

Go to settings and click encrypt wallet. Make an passphrase to your wallet for security of your wallet or staking purpose. When you're done just hit the ok button. The wallet will close. It's ok that's normal and boot your wallet again and go to settings and click unlock wallet.

I agree, good tutorial @ianskieMK26 on using a paper wallet, or importing one. I think there are not too many people using, or really know how to use, a paper wallet but for just hodling for a period it is good and secure.

I know I am using a paper wallet for another couple of weeks or so since I my HD is getting really, dangerously, full. Then I will need to import it into the desktop wallet soon so I can stake.
