Let's say I want to keep 10 bucks worth of bitcoin on a spare USB thumb drive for novelty purposes, what's the most practical way to store BTC on a regular thumbdrive short of basic text file with private key?

I know about bitcoin and even have s ledger nano s but I just have this urge to fill all my devices with just a few satoshi just 5nor 20 bucks worth and I wont mind if it disappears, I just want the best way to keep a private key on a urb thumb drive, which can allow me to feel the coolest. I'm guessing many of you will say to just use electrum wallet and create an encrypted password wallet backup file and load it on the thumbdrive? And if I dont want to make it THAT hard for someone to open of they do find it, what would be the best option? Thanks and if this were steem or eos I would just leave a private key and I guess I'd do same for btc but I'm guessing its easier and safer to use electrum compatible files? Or maybe theres software just for this? Thanks in advanced

Had a friend in his 30s pass away, now his Bitcoin is gone forever...

I've definitely given this food for thought before, but now I feel like I need to get a little more serious with it...
How do you plan to pass your Bitcoin onto your heirs?? I had read before about someone having a will/trust/whatever that listed half of the key, and then another document that would point to a safety deposit box that had the other half of the key. Otherwise, how else can you pass it on??? Nobody's gonna know your passwords, keys, etc.
This guy told me he had a lot of BTC that he could retire off of. Poof. Gone forever. I know haters gonna hate, but I feel like this is one area that paper wallets really are the best. Just my opinion, at least...

Why should I spend $100 on a Ledger or Trezor wallet when I can buy $10 worth of USB’s?

What makes Ledger Wallets so appealing on this subreddit and why wouldn’t USB’s work?

[SERIOUS] If you make a necklace/bracelet/ring of USB key(s) or other storage medium holding bitcoin, isn't it jewelry?

Just a thought experiment really on what's considered "jewelry".
Several small bitcoin-laden flash drives encased in lucite connected by simple chain would function as jewelry, no?
Some want a diamond tennis bracelet, but a bitcoin-laden flash drive bracelet could be worth much more.
Thoughts?

[US-MA] [H] Model M 122-Key (x2), RJ45 to USB Soarer's Converter [W] Paypal, bitcoin, etherium

I've got 2 122-Key model M's for sale. I bought a soarer's converter so I could play with one and then decided it's too big of a step from my planck to this battlestation!
Here are pics with timestamps
122-Key Model M #1 $80 - slightly cleaner of the two and it has all of it's keys. Coiled RJ45 connection.
122-Key Model M #2 - $60 This one has a bit more surface patina and is missing 3 overcaps. Two blanks from the numpad and the left arrow. Coiled RJ45 connection.
Soarer's Converter - $40 RJ45 to USB. Used once to test these.
US Shipping will probably be $15-20. I'll charge 20 and include a receipt and any leftover in the box.
I'm new to Model M operation, so I'm not 100% certain what keys should be mapped by default and what shouldn't. I used http://www.keyboardtester.com/ and a keycode utility to check operation. Both keyboards operate exactly the same, so I'm confident they are both fully functional. The '{}' key doesn't seem to be mapped to anything, similar to the button in the insert position, 'rule', and 2 blank keys on the numpad. All of the keys in the 2x5 array on the left side of the keyboard are also unmapped.
Paypal, BTC, ETH are all accepted. If you want to pay via crypto let me know right before you pay and I'll give you a crypto denominated price, as they have been all over the place lately.
Hit me up with any questions!

Some questions about paper wallets (How do I store Bitcoin on it?)

So I've decided to store some bitcoins on a paper wallet so that I can bury the seed phrase somewhere on this planet and dig it up if I ever have to. Anyways, I still don't understand it all fully. I investigated a bit and found out that I should create a wallet on an offline computer and all that stuff. So my understanding is that I get a public key (a wallet code that I use to send money to it? or is it a key used to generate wallet addresses? :'<) and a private key (used to access the wallet?). I understand that I can send the money to the wallet via public key (I guess), but how would I send the money from that paper wallet if I ever need it? How are the fees and confirmations going to work? Is it a MUST to use BIP39 standard or can I use any words (from my own language)? If I can use any words, where do I enter them and what software do I use for it? Should I maybe write down the private key instead of using a seed phrase? Is bitaddress.org suitable for using seed phrase that I want?
Sorry if these were already answered (I bet they were) but I'm just so confused and decided to write a post.
Thanks in advance to everyone that is willing to help!

#FACT: In 2013, an Australian man lost thousands of mined Bitcoins due to a cheap USB drive. He saved encrypted wallet keys in a USB drive which failed to open and cost him around $20 million by today's #Bitcoin price.
