How Do I Make a Paper Bitcoin Wallet?

When purchasing crypto from one of our kiosks, you will need to provide a wallet that is yours and under your full control. If you don’t already have a digital wallet downloaded on your phone by the time you make your transaction, you can create a Paper Wallet. A Paper Wallet is essentially two QR codes (a public and private key) which are printed on receipt paper at the kiosk. This is meant as a temporary placeholder of your funds, until you can import them using your RockItCoin app.

How to Create a Paper Bitcoin Wallet with a Bitcoin ATM

Disclaimer: At this time our ATMs do not support Ethereum Paper Wallets, but you can still purchase Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash using this option.

Step 1: Find and Visit a Local RockItCoin ATM

With 1,900+ RockItCoin ATMs around the country, there’s sure to be a location close by. Visit our locations page to find one near you!

Step 2: Select “Buy Coins” and choose the amount you plan to purchase.

You can buy as little as $10 and as much as $15,000 worth of crypto from our ATMs. Touch the screen to select the range in which you wish to purchase.

Step 3: Enter Your Phone Number, SMS Code, or Secret PIN.
New users will receive an SMS code on their phones which they will be prompted to enter into the RockItCoin ATM to verify their identity. After you verify your SMS code, you will be prompted to create a Secret PIN. Returning users will simply need to input their secret PIN that they created their first visit.

Step 4: Select the Cryptocurrency that You Wish to Purchase

Step 5: Select “Create New Wallet”

Step 6: Retrieve your Paper Wallet from the printer located on the right-hand side of the kiosk.

Disclaimer: Do NOT proceed unless both QR codes have printed properly and are clearly visible!

Paper Wallets are one of a kind and cannot be replicated, making sure that your Paper Wallet printed properly is crucial before funding it.

Once funded, if your Paper Wallet gets lost or damaged, we CANNOT create a duplicate to replace it.

Step 7: Once you have confirmed that your Paper Wallet has printed properly, tap the blue button that says “I agree, wallet has printed. Fund my new wallet!”

Step 8: The following screen will prompt you to begin inserting your bills to fund your Paper Wallet. The bill acceptor is located below the keypad of the ATM on the left-hand side and will flash green.

  • Once you have finished inserting your bills, verify that the amount recorded on screen matches the amount that you put in. Next, select “Finish”.

Step 9: Finally, select how you wish to receive your receipt (either print or email).

Congratulations! You have successfully funded your paper wallet. You are now ready to import your funds into your digital wallet.

What to Do After You Create a Paper Bitcoin Wallet

Now that you have funded your Paper Wallet make sure to keep it in a safe place. Paper Wallets are one-of-a-kind and can be easily damaged. The paper the wallet is printed on can rip, wrinkle, and can be damaged by both water and heat.  Any of these instances can make it unreadable and your funds inaccessible. Because of its fragility and the possibility of losing the wallet, we highly recommend you import the funds into a software wallet, such as our RockItCoin mobile app, after completing your transaction. Remember if you share your Paper Wallet with anyone, they will have full access to the coins being stored in it.
