Store your coins safely

Recommended Posts

In order to prevent loosing your valuable BTC,ETH there are other ways to store your coins, than in a software wallet on your pc or online.

Your pc can have a disk crash, oops i have no backup....., your pc can get infected with ransomware, you can get hacked, just to name a few things that can happen.

Alternative is offline hardware wallet.

These things look like a usb stick , they have high security and even if u break it down with a hammer your coins are still not gone, you can use then a recovery code with a new hardware wallet and your coins are back.

I will name a few and place links to the makers of it ( i personally have no interests with these makers, its pure info for you)

Read the specs because most of them support more than only BTC,ETH so find the one that fits your needs.

You can also use a paper wallet, that is safe to internet threats since its offline.

And its cheaper than hardware solutions like the ones presented here.

 

paper can burn if u have only 1 copy on 1 place

"Paper" can also be a sheet of engraved inox steel, doesn´t necessarily means real paper.

You can have a backup copy of a "paper" wallet in a safe box in a bank, doesn´t need energy.

Thought mentioning this would make the topic more complete for people that don´t know other ways to store the BTCs.

BTW, the "recovery code" that you mention in case the hardware wallet gets damaged, who keeps it, where and in which form?. TY for the info.
