What is a Paper Wallet
“Paper wallets” in the context of Bitcoin ATMs are single pairings of a public address and private key that print out on receipt paper and which you can use to receive bitcoin you are planning to purchase. When you press “Print Paper Wallet” at the ATM, the machine will print for you a Paper Wallet. The paper wallets are useful as a temporary transfer medium if you are using a desktop computer at home or haven’t yet setup a mobile wallet. They are also useful in cases when you can’t scan your mobile address.
Note: Paper wallets from an ATM are printed on thermal paper intended for temporary handling and transfer only. Do not use these for long-term storage of digital currency.
