frozenkrill: a minimalist Bitcoin wallet focused on cold storage
This is the first public release of our Bitcoin wallet focused on cold storage.
It’s open-source, CLI based and written in Rust.
The goal is to provide a secure solution to generate private keys that can be stored in digital mediums (e.g cloud storage). It’s an alternative to current-gen hardware wallets for some users that don’t have physical security and stability.
It’s beta but should work fine. All feedback is welcome.
Please visit our github page for more information: [https://github.com/planktonlabs/frozenkrill](https://github.com/planktonlabs/frozenkrill)
If you have any questions please ask.
it looks nice but I wouldn’t use cloud or any other online storage regardless of encryption strength.
I know about one ex bitcoin dev who loves to do that and may be looking for a better wallet these days.
In my script [DoubleSlow Keystretcher](https://github.com/vstoykovbg/doubleslow/) I am handling the key stretching differently, I am using not only Argon2, but also Scrypt.
It’s not a complete wallet, it’s intended only for an additional key stretching. The input (I am calling it “salt”) can be a BIP39 mnemonic or other type of string (including arbitrary string).
Your wallet have only 3 settings of difficulty for the key stretching, my script can be configured to stretch the key more heavily (the user is choosing the RAM size to be used and the number of iterations is practically not limited, it can be configured to go for hours).

Its focus is cold storage but its goal is to be a hot wallet? Shouldn’t the focus and goal be the same instead of opposites?
