I stored bitcoins online ... aaaand they're gone.

/SorryForYourLoss is a place to showcase the top minds of bitcoin (and cryptocurrencies) failing to secure their precious internet money properly. It's a memorial for the countless incidents of thefts, scams, hacks, goxxes, .. etc.

Secure bitcoin storage - please help me bring my solution up to 2017 standards

Long term hodler from 2013. Still waiting for my Monarch j/k. My solution has always been;
Running full node on Linux and using what was the core client in 2013 (I haven't really been up to date all the splintering factions or anything, so let me know if that's terrible) as my wallet. I update the client from the PPA (potentially also terrible without verifying each release).
My wallet.dat lives in an encrypted file container created under the last known safe TrueCrypt 7.. I have not updated TrueCrypt from that version. Additionally, I'm using the wallet password in the client.
Passwords for the encrypted container and wallet live in a cloud password managed secured by a master password and 2FA. I have a copy in a KeePass container in case the company goes bust or servers are down.
Encrypted file container lives on multiple hard drives and multiple cloud storage locations (all with 2FA).
Workflow is
  1. Open password manager [password1 + 2FA].
  2. Decrypt container [password2] (TrueCrypt) and mount.
  3. Copy wallet.dat to bitcoin folder.
  4. Open client [password3] and sync.
  5. Transact.
  6. Close client, copy wallet.dat back to container.
  7. Delete wallet.dat from O/S.
  8. Unmount container, re-upload to local and cloud storage.
This was something I put together back in the day and I suspect there are betteeasier ways today. I'm not using a live install either - I wanted to be a full node and it sucks messing around with installs and the data directory each time. So yes... deleting the wallet after use is not exactly 'deleting' it to be precise, but I consider this to be the least likely attack vector.
Is this a terrible setup? If so - which is the weakest link?
What have I missed in the past four years? What is multi-sig? Are hardware wallets any good and what problem with my setup do they solve?

Request for comments: Developing guide for very high-security bitcoin storage

Secure cold storage of bitcoins is difficult, and near-impossible for an amateur. We are solving this problem and would like community feedback on our approach.
We attempted to follow the consensus advice for creating secure bitcoin storage - setting up multi-sig paper wallets using air-gapped computers. To our surprise, this common advice was difficult to follow. There were a confusing variety of tools to choose from at each step, most of which weren’t built around this use case.
We were also surprised to discover there were no good tutorials for navigating this process, despite Bitcoin being several years old. This should not be a gap in the Bitcoin ecosystem in 2016!
We are solving this problem creating an open source, step-by-step guide that removes all confusion from the process of creating secure cold storage.
As a first step, we’ve written a design document detailing the technical decisions we have made so far. This is not the step-by-step guide, but a summary that we have put together for more efficient critique. Please give us your most severe criticism.
Our hope is that this project will serve as the de facto guide for anyone looking for secure cold storage of bitcoin. We want it to be as close to bulletproof as a reasonable person can get.
We also hope it will inspire developers to make cold storage easier than it is with currently available tools.
Here is the document. Please leave comments here or in the document itself.
