    Keep your CSC safe

    Just the private key.
  2. If I was in your position I would remove the ssd disk from your laptop immediately. Do not install any software on it. Get one of these cables https://www.amazon.co.uk/USB-SATA-Adapter-Cable-Drives-en-GB-SATA-USB-3-0-converter/dp/B01N2JIQR7 Connect the disk to another laptop on which you install several recovery software and run a scan and then cross your fingers at the same time.

    Yes, maybe wear a shirt (open collar) for an important meeting but if you are stuck in some server room in a basement upgrading hardware the last thing you want is a tie 🙂 Love Curb!!!!

    True, but in a normal working environment if you want some serious coding done you go to the guy wearing the sandals not the Gucci's. 🙂

    In the IT world the better dressed you are the less technical ability you have.

    Not quite. The letter A doesn't represent a certain character in your private address. It is the complete combination of words to create your private key. For example the 24 words below creates the following private key. express select release sword nuclear adult maple caught mutual tree genuine nose pull endless aspect defense october better save dad inflict share bid elephant = xprv9yFZm4agMLCeYURWwc8VyFytHpb3KNwmFtMZWRtG7nBgfrPaXGyWvNHiwnu1eLrKmRp6Nwo9tBwVDCTJ5DqJNkSU2rZsYaF2Ho84RZvvgiG Take a look a the below generator. It will show you how the 24 words are converted into your private key https://iancoleman.io/bip39/

    Likewise. Paper wallets are probably the most secure. You could even add your own code to your private key. eg 4x2 code - every 4th character increase by 2. So even if someone found your paper wallet they still couldn't access your cryptos.

    Sorry @CindyLou didn't intend to. Feel free to ask any questions to clarify.

    IMHO I would not say it is a 100% safe. There is always the possibility of your nano being tampered with between source and arriving at your door. So never buy a 2nd hand one or new one from ebay etc. Always buy direct from Ledger. When I received mine I set it up as normal then wiped it repeating this process a few times. So never using the 1st private key it generates.

    The wallets are create using BIP-004 standard which is accepted by other wallet manufactures. It is open source. Without knowing the 24 words and in the correct order you would probably need a quantum computer to brute force it. https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0044.mediawiki
