        I have some crypto investments and I would like to ensure they stay safe. I know the wallet system is pretty solid but I want to have an even more secure setup for my investments. What options are available for something like this right now?

          One option that is increasing in popularity is using a cold wallet. If you are not familiar with this, it is the opposite of a “hot wallet” being your wallet on your phone or computer. You store information offline such as keeping your passwords written down and kept in a safe place or putting them on a USB. For more security, hardware wallets can be used.

            I agree with Vicky. While I am still new to everything, having a cold wallet is ideal. I am going to look into hardware wallets more myself as well. I heard about them late last year but didn’t actually start buying crypto until February of this year.

              You will have plenty of security within your wallet but you always want to make sure you keep your backup password string safe. In that, I would recommend keeping it somewhere that will not be lost, think even in the event of a fire. I know some people who just keep them inside their computer towers or in other appliances (written in permanent marker) for this reason.
