  1. So, now that I sent LTC to a paper wallet, how do I get it off using Litcoin Qt?

  2. HI..! Please help.!
    I need confirmation, I have chosen the brain wallet and picked passwords and it gave me a Litecoin address and private key.
    Question: Are these addresses now active?
    Every time I push ‘paper wallet’ it gives me different litecoin address code, do these have to be activated or are they valid and I just have to keep one to use it?……THANX

  3. You can sweep the private key onto an online wallet service, then send them out to another paper wallet when you get paranoid of leaving your money on the online service.

  4. Can some one please explain how this works?

    If i generate a wallet address+private key offline, how does the blockchain keep a record of this? If i was to send funds to this address how does the blockchain even know this address exists if it was created offline? please anybody?

    • @johny just send 0.01 ltc as test amount and check the blockchain after 30 minutes.

    • Blockchain doesn’t need to keep record of new address generation. It is possible to send coins to any possible public address (i.e. any address that can potentially be generated).

      • but if the blockchain doesnt know about your new address your created offline, how does anything know this knew address’s password?
        What stops anyone else from duplicating this address and aquiring it before you, taking your funds?
        Can I turn a paperwallet into a digital wallet back into a paperwallet, or do I have to make a new paperwallet everytime?

        • 1.) The address is produced using the scrypt encryption. The password uses the same encryption to be linked to the address and key.

          2.) the encryption protects you

          3.) Every wallet has a private key. You can move that private key from paper to digital if you want, but it’s more secure to create a new private key bad nice to the new key each time.

          Note: I could have some of these answers slightly wrong. I know I’m correct to a degree but may have the details/technicals wrong.
