Taking care of a Bitcoin Cash Note
The notes are made from durable and water resistant polymer paper. Furthermore, the backup private key text (underneath the tamper-seal) is also printed on water resistant paper, however this will only hold to a certain extent. You will need to take extra care during both storage and handling. The following precautions should hold your notes in good stead:
- Keep your notes stored free from bending and deformation – particularly the private key! Significant deformation or agitation of the private key could potentially damage it. The wallet in your pocket will certainly damage your notes and shorten its lifespan.
- Keep your notes in a dry place away from water or moisture.
- For extra care, keep your notes in plastic currency sleeves.
