Investing FAQs

What Is A Hardware Crypto Wallet?

There’s no globally accepted standard or definition of what constitutes a Hardware Wallet. They can take almost endless shapes and forms, however the most common ones allow the user to generate and store their Private Keys, display receive addresses for confirmation and sign new transactions for spending. This is usually done on dedicated hardware separate from any other computer or phone.

Why Should You Use A Hardware Crypto Wallet?

If you have funds that are more than what you’re willing to lose, typically anything more than pocket change, then we heavily recommend you purchase a Hardware Wallet as part of our Advanced Bitcoin Security. Hardware Crypto Wallets are cheap ($50+ USD), easy to setup and use and ensure that your Private Key is never exposed to an insecure computer or the Internet. This dramatically increases your security and is the only true way to safely store your bitcoins.
