Considering the amount of virus, trojans, and malware that exist, its normal to think why Hardware wallet had such high success, since with CryptoCoins we are or own Bank, and there is no one we can claim in case someone steal our tokens.
Thats the reason in this article we are going to explain the easy steps to install the IOTA Trinity Wallet in a safe environment, in this case a Linux Distribution called Xubuntu.
You can select any other distribution you like, but Xubuntu requires low performance machine, so works very quick.
All you need is a USB pen drive and a few programs. Our computer operating system will never be modified, and linux will run in “live mode” over the USB.
First step, download xubuntu from https://xubuntu.org/download
Here is a quicker access to the ISO File in case you need it:
Now we need to install some software to “burn” the ISO file in a PenDrive. (recommend at least a 4 GB one)
in this case i will use “linuxliveusb” from www.linuxliveusb.com
but there are more tools like unetbootin.
So download the program, install it, open it, plug the PenDrive (all data will be removed so use pendrive you dont need). On Step1 of the program, you select the pendrive. on Step2 you select the ISO/IMG/ZIP and then find the xubuntu file we downloaded a few minutes ago. on the Step 4 just check the second one (format) and leave the rest unchecked.
You are almost done, just left to click the Thunder Icon on Step 5 and Wait!
After finish the creation, now you need to reboot the computer with the USB Pendrive Plugged In,
and it should start to load the Linux Operating System.
In case it doesn’t, means its not configured to boot from USB, so you must join the BIOS of your computer and change it. Each computer might have a different way to enter the BIOS, so you must google your computer model in case you dont know how to.
Once the Linux OS is booted, you can follow The steps of this video to install the Trinity Wallet.
So easy! remember to write, print and save your seed before move in any IOTA’s!
Nothing is saved in the Linux OS, each time you boot it, it will be fresh again, so thats the reason its very important you save, print, and even write manually your seed.
Now you know how move in a safe environment to work with your favourite cryptocurrency token!
