I'm very much a newbie to Zcash, although I really like what I've seen so far and plan to be a long time supporter!
So long story short, I traded some BTCs to Zcash in Poloniex. Now I would like to store the Zcash for long-term in a cold storage. My system is running on OSX, so I downloaded the Zcash4mac wallet from https://zcash4mac.com. I then created a new T-address in that wallet app. To create a paper wallet by hand, my plan is to do the following:
- Dump the private key for that wallet address via the "Show private key" function in the app.
- Write it on a piece of paper.
- Delete that address from the app.
- In the future, use the "Import private key" function in the app when I want to restore from the paper.
Will this work? Can I do these steps for both T- and Z-addresses?
A. Is it possible to transfer balances in a T-address to a Z-address to anonymise that I own the coins?
B. Does poloniex support withdrawing directly to a Z address? I've only tried withdrawing to a T-address.
Many thanks for your help.
