I’m trying to balance the concept of seed protection/memorization with seed entropy. I have added 10 random words to my seed (that my kids have memorized), along with deletion of the last seed word (which my kids have also memorized). I now intend to save these 33 words in plain sight… making them publicly available, to ensure they aren’t lost and forgotten. My question to you is, how safe is this wallet?
