Is there a method of cold storage for bitcoins and other altcoins on a usb
Sorry in advance if this is being asked in the wrong place - I'm looking for a solution where I can put some bitcoin, ether, monero, maidsafe and dash into some form of bag holding storage. Is there anyway that I would be able to get all of these currencies onto a USB for me to keep safe and not touch (which would be cold storage?) My only experience are electrum wallets I run off a tails usb with a very strong password stored in keypass. Any help would be appreciated

Project: My own bank: Cold storage without proprietary hardware
Hi all, I am playing with the thought of setting up a cold storage for bitcoin using a multisig wallet. The objective is to have BTC under own control (not on an exchange!) but minimize risk of 'own storage' and keeping the thing manageable with intermediate knowledge. The whole thing should run without BTC proprietary hardware like trezors, it should run on 'regular hardware'. It seems the following approach could work: - multisig electrum wallet - one wallet completely offline on airgapped device - electrum private server connected through vpn and firewalls with separate ip, different to home network What are your thoughts on these points: - electrum a good choice regarding usability, or even the only choice if multisig wallet needed? - electrum having limited privacy without own server; setting up a new (electrum?) server as own node (which is a shame as I have a functioning bitcoin full node). Is there a way to get electrum or another desktop wallet with multisig support running with a regular full node ? - own node to verify own transactions and to avoid disclosing wallet balances to unknown servers - the offline machine will need updating at some stage if new versions of electrum are out (??) how to go about this - keeping software and setup overall robust long term (many years - where it's possible to re-install the wallet, replace its hardware) -- syd
