Getting Started: Blockplate

Step 1

With a marker or pencil, mark the grid with the first 4 letters of each word in your seed phrase. Why only the first 4 letters?

Place a small dot ( • ) in each box corresponding with the letters on the left-most edge (A-Z). 

The numerical order of your words are indicated by the numbers at the top-most edge (1-6 on the front, 7-12 on the back).

Step 2

Double check each letter and word. 

Yes, this is so important that it is it's own step.

Step 3

Using an automatic center punch, place the tip at each marking.

Press down firmly until you hear an audible "click"

This will make a physical and permanent indentation in each box.

We recommend picking up a center punch from your local hardware store or an online marketplace.

Step 4

Wipe the markings off with a damp cloth. Use rubbing alcohol if necessary.

Step 5

Repeat on the backside with your remaining words. 

With a 24-word phrase, you’ll use both plates. If you’d like to note the order of the plates, we recommend punching directly next to the “1” or “2” to dictate the 1st (1-12) and 2nd (13-24) set of words respectively.

Store your Blockplate in a secure, hidden location.
