Instructions for signing Cardano transactions offline


I’ve been recently looking into making offline Cardano transactions. Meaning, signing a transaction on an offline PC, and then moving it to an online PC and submitting it there.

Looks like none of the wallets support this, so instead I figured out how to do this with command-line tools. I’ve documented the instructions here:

I hope that somebody will find these useful.

I’ve also included a few notes about why I dislike hardware wallets.

And there’s also an exercise to claim a few ADA I left on one of the wallets. Just in case someone decides to try the instructions out.
