1  Other / Beginners & Help / Wallets and Cold Storage. on: December 29, 2015, 04:37:52 AM
After studying bitcoin for the past few months and collecting Lealana and Casascius coins I'm ready to buy some actual bitcoins. I've been looking into exchanges and made a thread about it.

Next is wallet and cold storage. My goals for bitcoin is to buy some and store it and forget about it. Ideally, cold storage looks to be the best method. So, my question is, do I really need to get a wallet like, Electrum, or can I skip getting a wallet and just transferring my coins from the exchange to a bit address from bitaddress.org and storing the information in a safe place?

Sorry for the newb level question, but I want to do this right and not have to worry about my btc being stolen or lost because of a careless error.

Thanks.

Hello all,

I am new to the world of btc. I have been researching it on and off for the past few years, but in the past few months have made my research a daily event. I have even bought some of the physical coins created by Lealana and Casascius. While I am having fun collecting these coins I really want to get into actually buying bitcoins in it's real form and not just pretty cold storage coins.

Where do you recommend I do exchanges through? I am based in the USA and plan on buying and storing coins. I've heard mixed reviews on coinbase. Any other recommendations?

Thanks in advanced.
