Switching computers is a lot of work, especially if you want to de-cruft along the way so you don't do the "just copy everything for me" thing.

I mean, the actual switching is easy, but being confident you got everything is less so. Especially in a world of cryptocurrencies.

I have old Electrum wallets that I haven't actively used in years but I've got this terrible fear that someone will send something to them and I won't have the keys anymore so I must keep them!

The question is... do I really need them? I mean, who would send me Bitcoin? Without confirming where to send it first? I don't know. BUT IT COULD HAPPEN! ?
