    Any input on whether this is a good idea?
    My godson's 21st soon and rather than just cash, I'd like to give him some ETH or BTC to get him started on this trail?

    Does he have any interest in it or the technology or will he find it a hindrance to figure out how to get his money?

    He is very interested in fairness.

    Then it's probably a pretty decent idea. Could probably consider a ledger aswell if the option is there.

    So sorted the paper wallet...
    He loved it!
    Gave the best ever description of crypto I've heard yet tho!
    Explaining it to one of his friends, he said! "It's basically like Schroedinger's money! Ya don't know what it's worth until you decide to spend it!"
