I’m wondering what the safest procedure is for creating a daedalus wallet. having used trezor and ledger, I know the private key isn’t exposed. But with daedalus, it’s right there on my screen.
Everything I read about crypto seems to say if your private key is exposed online, you should consider it compromised.
So i’m just wondering how best to proceed with Daedalus. and have a few specific questions:
1 - is there a checksum available for the installer? I didn’t see anything on the download page.
2 - does it make sense to install on a freshly installed OS to prevent any chance of malware/keyloggers, etc.
- Once the blocks are synced, is it possible (or advisable) to kill the internet connection and create the wallet “offline” in daedalus? is that possible?
Or if there is a guide of steps for best practices for security when using daedalus, that would be great.
Thanks for your help!
