What is a Paper Wallet?

A paper wallet is an offline mechanism for storing Conceal coins. The process involves printing the private keys and Conceal addresses onto paper. Physical wallets, also known as "physical Conceals," are considered one of the safest ways to store Conceal; if properly constructed, and provided that certain precautions are taken, it will be nearly impossible for a hostile user to access your Conceal holdings. Images of physical Conceal coins are commonly seen in media coverage in innovative styles, mostly with a ‘new look’ of the coin and the private key printed either on paper, plastic, or metal.

A paper wallet is considered an extremely secure way to keep Conceal safe from cyber-attacks, malware, etc. A paper wallet involves "printing" and storing Conceal coins in an offline mode. But it's important to remember that it’s not the Conceal coins that are being printed out like regular currency. It's the information stored in a Conceal wallet or digital wallet that gets printed out. The data appearing on the wallet includes the public key (wallet address), which allows people to transfer money into that wallet, and the private key, which gives access to fund spending. Thus, Conceal coins themselves are not stored offline, but the important keys are stored offline.
