I am trying to use MEW on an offline computer under the tab "Contracts". Is this possible ? When I try it, I get to the final step where the pop up box lets me hit the "Generate Transaction" button, but then nothing happens. Any ideas ? If I am on an online computer, the transaction generates fine. But I don't want to expose my private key online. Thanks in advance.
You technically can. I've summarized the steps from MyEtherWallet below:
- From the online computer, go to the offline transaction page and fill in the address you're sending from.
- Go to the offline computer, and on the offline transaction page, fill in the to address and your amount. From step 1, you should have a nonce and a gas price.
- Sign the transaction on the offline computer. You can generate a transaction on the offline transaction page.
- Copy the signed transaction to the online computer. On the offline transaction page on the online computer again, add the signed information and hit send.
