Sorry about my vague description.

As a subkey of 0x00B45EBD4CA7BABE, I have a key of secp256k1.  And the
private key is controlled by me, on a Gnuk Token.  But I have no
"wallet", yet.  This is the situation.

My idea was that we can use WoT of OpenPGP to check Bitcoin address.
It seems that people don't buy this idea.
