Found a 2014 file on my computer called bitcoin wallet private key backup. It's just a text file: 4972 characters, and every 100 characters or so has a forward slash.

Don't think I have any significant amount of funds in this wallet, but am curious just what kind of a back up I am looking at. Ideas?

Luke-Jr decides to rename "paper wallet" to "Paper ECDSA private keys" for all of us. Replaces all paper wallet information on the Bitcoin Wiki with what he prefers to use (HD mnemonic wallet backups).

Luke-Jr doesn't like paper wallets. To this end, he has renamed/moved the official Bitcoin wiki for "Paper Wallet" to "Paper ECDSA private keys", making it confusing and difficult for users to learn what a paper wallet is and how to stay safe when making one. Meanwhile, he has created a brand new "Paper wallet" page in which he redefines a paper wallet as a Armory/Electrum backup of a HD wallet mnemonic seed, and says that these should not be confused with what you and I and everyone else calls a paper wallet.
The other contribution Luke-Jr made to the original paper wallet wiki was to unlink my own service (bitcoinpaperwallet.com) from the wiki, his reasoning being, "BitcoinPaperWallet was removed because it is a website for generating private keys". As someone who has put a lot of energy into paper wallet education and generally helping the bitcoin community with paper wallet generation, I find this utterly baffling.
I don't want to get involved in a revision battle here. Luke-Jr has already started that, reverting any changes I make to the wiki instantly.
If you have an opinion on this matter and you have bitcoin wiki editor privileges, please express it on the discussion page.
Edit 1: you can also express opinions right here of course :)
Edit 2: much of the discussion on this page is about whether or not paper wallets are a good idea, or if websites should be used to generate them. Can we at least agree that these pro/con arguments should appear on a wiki page called "paper wallets" so everyone can find them? If those arguments appear on a wiki page called "Paper ECDSA private keys" then nobody will see them.
Edit 3: Gladoscc on the wiki has renamed "Paper ECDSA private keys" back to "Paper Wallet" as of 12:41 UTC, so you may be confused if you visit the wiki to see what all the hubbub is about -- unless his change has been reverted by the time you read this. :)
Edit 4: Gladoscc's change didn't last for more than 24 hours before Luke-Jr re-reverted the changes, and then added in a confounding set of redirects in the wiki so that "Paper Wallet" redirects to "Paper wallet" which then redirects to his page on HD wallet mnemonic seeds. I cannot understand how this is supposed to help end users who want to learn what a paper wallet is (and why they're risky, and how hard it is to produce them in a safe way.)

Bitcoin Wallet - Have Private Key Backup Only

Hi Reddit community, A few years ago I had an Android phone, created a wallet using the BitCoin Wallet client (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.schildbach.wallet). I have a backup of the private keys, but on longer know what my wallet address is. I don't understand much about the wallet process, there does not seem to be a really basic overview. I'm a nerd with not enough time to research it properly. Can someone explain simply how the wallets work, and more importantly to me, is it possible to recover bitcoins for use with only the private key backups I have? I did some mining in the past, so I know there is some monetary value there.

I am working on website which will receive and store users bitcoins (safe vault kind of system )
As of my knowledge bitcoind generate new address for each user with rpc call getnewaddress Each address has its own private key which is limited to 100 key pool for bitcoind So how would i backup each users privatekey because bitcoind will generate new keypool

Usage of private keys

I have may be a stupid question about spending bitcoin. I understand that the private key is used to spend bitcoin but when I watched YouTube videos about wallet app demos, when they spend cryptos, all the do is
  1. Open their Wallet app
  2. Click “SEND”
  3. Scan the receiver’s address QR code
  4. Confirm send via passcode and 2FA from like Google Authenticator
Then in a matter of 1-2 min, crypto will have been sent. Where does the private key come in?
It seems that if I lose my phone, all someone needs is to unlock my phone, unlock my Wallet app and then they can access my cryptos.

Are deterministic software and hardware wallets 'universal' - will they work without their creators?

Suppose our favorite hardware, software or browser based deterministic wallet goes out of business or something, can I use the seed words to restore the wallet on the Bitcoin network or is the seed restoration logic exclusively with the creating company?
And keeping this answer in mind, is it always advisable to additionally backup private keys? (I often read conflicting answers on what a user should do with his private keys)
