Arman The Parman – Bitcoin Security Mentor. Has expertise in assisting Bitcoiners reach optimal levels of security.
A BITCOIN PERSONAL ASSISTANT
This service is dedicated to non-technical people interested in Bitcoin (you don’t have to be a Boomer, that’s just a little joke).
It can be daunting, but don’t panic, I can help. Even if you are a complete novice with computers, I can help you.
You will just need to know how (or get help) to connect with me by a Zoom call, and Bitcoin-help is at hand (voice, video, and screenshare).
There are different “modules” we can cover. It’s up to you how many you’d like to complete.
Contact me by email or Twitter DM to check for availability, or if you have questions.
1. UNDERSTANDING BITCOIN
Learn what Bitcoin is and how it works, and its potential. Explore your doubts and objections. Bring all your questions.
2. BUYING BITCOIN
There are different ways and places to buy bitcoin. Not all countries have the same options available to them. I’ll help you setup an account and make your first purchase.
3. WITHDRAWING BITCOIN FROM THE EXCHANGE
We will go through why you should remove your coins from the exchange. Then I’ll walk you through the necessary steps to do that, and also storage of keys (various options including hardware wallets), and how to make transactions yourself.
4. INHERITANCE PLANNING
Will work together to come up with a solution tailored to your situation.
Below are some advanced topics covered in a comprehensive mentorship course.
RUN A NODE
You’ll learn why it’s important, what to shop for, unboxing and setting up, running software. Connecting your wallet to your own node.
Getting advanced now. Supreme security. Multisignature wallets have more than one key, and allow you to set a minimum threshhold of keys required to spend bitcoin. This allows some interesting solutions to shared custody and inheritance, but more importantly, it increases security by orders of magnitude, particularly if keys storage is duplicated, and kept in different geographical locations. In addition, spending conditions allow not all keys to be in one place using partially signed Bitcoin transactions (PSBTs).
MAKE YOUR OWN AIR-GAPPED COMPUTER
Not for the faint of heart. With this device, you can check the “honesty” of your hardware wallet. You can, for the first time safely type in, and create private keys on, a computer. It also allows you to type sensitive instructions to your heirs without the risk that your computer keys strokes are being snooped on by hackers.
GENERATE YOUR OWN PRIVATE KEYS
Getting very advanced now. Making your own private keys in a safe way is extremely hard, but offers extreme safety. Most people trust the hardware wallet they buy to produce a private key for them. Additional steps are necessary to prove these keys are truly randomly generated and that the resulting addresses indeed do belong to the key provided. Better still is to produce your own keys and store them in the hardware wallet. But producing keys requires a computer, and we need one that is not able to connect to the internet, for maximum safety.
