I am trying to secure my wallet key, and one suggestion I received was to store my coins in a cold wallet. I tried to look up the approach but couldn’t seem to hit the right keywords.
I am now farming with wallet A, with around 50 plots generated for this wallet. No XCH has been earned yet. Now I want to isolate wallet A from the internet, this maybe stored on just a piece of paper with the 24 words, but wallet A will not be running on the computer anymore.
Now I want to continue plotting and farming for wallet A, what should I do?
My incomplete understanding is that I should create a wallet B, but when doing plotting and farming, I need to
- Extract the farmer and pool key of wallet A (public keys, safe to disclose)
- Somehow apply the two keys from wallet A to the config files of the computer running wallet B
With these, I can plot and farm on wallet B like before, but any XCH earned will go directly to wallet A.
Am I understanding the approach correctly? I am on ubuntu, and I know that I can extract the two mentioned keys using
chia keys show
How should I then add them to the computer running wallet B? (In plotman I know there are options to inject these two keys, but I don’t know about where to do so for Chia itself)
