How to check paper wallet balance by scanning the QR code with Mycelium

Do you need to verify the balance of a paper wallet but do not feel like manually typing the address to a blockchain explorer?

You can do this simple check with the Mycelium mobile app in the following way:

-Tap on the menu with three dots and choose “cold storage”

-Choose “get private key from QR code” (I know it sounds weird since we only want to show the public key, not the private key)

-Mycelium will now show the balance of that address, but the funds are not spendable (because you only showed it the public key)
