IOTA Offline

A completely offline IOTA transaction bundle signer.

⚠️ This toolset requires two devices.

  • An offline device for signing transactions.
  • An online device for broadcasting.

⚠️ Important notice! These tools are intended for and only for experienced IOTA users that understand the technical details and intricacies of the IOTA tangle. The input verification of these tools are limited due to the nature of being an offline toolset. Therefore, use with caution and at your own risk.

Purpose

I've never been completely comfortable signing IOTA transactions online using the mobile/desktop wallet provided by the IOTA Foundation. Personally I will only use those wallets with throw-away seeds and small IOTA quantities.

Therefore, I want to store my main stash of IOTA on a seed that has never been exposed any networked device.

My own setup is:

  1. Use a bootable OS on a pendrive and open the iota-offline-bundle-signer.html. Using the bundle-signer I can produce a valid and signed transaction bundle offline.

  2. Later, I open the iota-online-bundle-broadcaster.html on another networked device. Now I can broadcast my signed transaction bundle to the tangle.

By doing it this way, I feel very comfortable signing transactions from my cold wallet to my hot wallet.

Build from scratch (optional/not required)

Required softwares:

  • npm (Node package manager)
  1. Install the required software.
  2. Open a terminal.
  3. Navigate to the iota-offline folder.
  4. Run the command: npm install

Usage

There is no installation required, you can use the pre-compiled toolset out of the box. Download the files, go to the folder dist/ and open any of the .html files in your browser.
