Paper wallets were very popular between 2011 and 2016. You just had to print the keys or QR codes generated by a website and keep it safe. Remember, you don't print your crypto assets, you print the information contained in your wallet.
Paper wallet are now being considered obsolete.
Very good enlightenment, although this paper wallet is very safe but I think it's too complicated, we have to print the private key or secret and public key to receive crypto. while to issue or spend crypto balances we have to install p2p clients or with blockchain and put a private key, maybe paper wallets are now abandoned by people.
Paper wallets can be a very good thing if you are looking to hold that cryptocurrency coin for a long period of time and i think that it is also able to provide a good sense of security as well because your wallet is not always connected to the internet and therefore the chance of being hacked is lower. However in terms of usability it does not make sense if you want to use or trade your coins because it can be quite inconvenient and i think that is why the use of these paper wallets is starting to diminish.
