Backup Public Keys

While you can spend bitcoin with only m seeds, you must also have all n public keys to be able to spend any bitcoin. For this reason, we recommend saving many copies (each one having all public keys).

Save to USB Pen Drive or DVD Drive

Make many copies and store in many locations. We recommend you keep a copy of all public keys (and related metadata) with each seed.

Save on Your Computer

TODO: add instructions on how to save this with Specter.

Save Online

Save this data to various cloud providers (Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud) or backup services (Mozy, Carbonite, Backblaze, etc) that you may already use. Keep in mind this now means they have the ability to see all your bitcoin transactions and balance information (if they decide to peek).
