Restoring Paper Wallet


#1

Hi everyone, I am new to this space, so please excuse my ignorance if this is a relatively simple question.

When one restores their paper wallet on daedulus, is that paper wallet still functionable as a paper wallet, or do you have to create a new one?

Thanks for any future feedback!

The point of the paper wallet is to keep the private key offline until you need to use the funds, so once you restore it, it then only has the same level of security as a normal online wallet.
It still functions, but not the way you’d want a paper wallet to, with the private key never having been exposed to an online machine.

I reused my paperwallet. i just deleted the restored wallet from daedalus. You should be fine.
