    Hi guys.
    I'm relatively new to crypto, and so, therefore, have quite a noob question, I've been doing it for less than a year but as of late the relatively modest sums invested have grown a fair bit and I'm therefore more concerned about security than what I previously was. Since my stock of xtrabytes is fairly large I want to put it in a paper wallet since I'm unlikely to want to trade in the near future. What I am wondering is. If I did put my Xtrabytes in a paper wallet, how would I import it back into my wallet on my laptop? is there a very obvious way I've just missed? because I can't seem to find an explanation anywhere. I've never previously operated with a paper wallet and so this is all new to me

    Thank you :blush:

    As suggested in the other thread, you would just use the importprivkey function in the wallet :) I'd suggest making a test paper wallet and testing the import for yourself so you feel comfortable with it.
