There's a related article where you can see some of the feedback of those three hardwallets you have mentioned:

https://99bitcoins.com/winners2017-best-bitcoin-hardware-wallet/

https://www.buybitcoinworldwide.com/wallets/

Worth reading if you really want to purchase one of them.

All this wallets are the same kind, you just need to take that interface that your eye like the most. Hardware and paper wallets are used mostly for big amount of coins holding. In the case if you are a micro-earner use online wallet, it's easy and the level of safety of such wallets is growing year by year.

how and where?

in the last few weeks we've seen jaxx wallet having a huge vulnerability and blockchain.info is no more secure that it was in the past. and micro earners above everyone else need control over their fees and no online wallet does that.

a phone wallet will always be a better bet than something accessible through a browser.

Mobile wallets such as the one from Mycelium are indeed a much better alternative in terms of security and fee control, no doubt about that.

Point however is that faucets and other sites that allow people to earn extremely small number of coins, is that they switched to Coinbase and Xapo as they allow free internal transactions.

It basically means that if people want to continue earning through these sites, they are forced to sign up at Coinbase and Xapo anyway. Downside obviously is that there is no fee control.

unless I'm mistaken xapo charge deposit fees now. Micro earning is probably unviable as a concept now with bit coin.

One question:

Trezor has the key input on the screen.

Nano S has the key input on the computer, yes?

Doesn't this by default make the Trezor more secure against Keyloggers etc?


And, do you see Phone wallets as being more secure than Desktop wallets, until i get one of them?

After all discussions I would still recommend paper wallet.

Trezor looks very interesting, but what we gonna do if it glitches or if we will break or lose it? Probably there should be some solutions but I didn't dig into it

If done right a paper wallet is zero risk, but many people won't do it right.

The main difference will be usability. You can't send from a paper wallet, only receive. With a hardware wallet it's just as practical as any other one when it comes to spending.

At the moment it seems your main problem will be actually getting hold of any of the major hardware wallets. Unless you pay through the nose on Ebay or Amazon you might be in for a long wait before they restock.
Using a paper wallet is difficult and time consuming. Losing that piece of paper means losing your money, and losing a trezor means only that you'll have to go home and open your main wallet to send and receive anything. And that you just lost a lot of money because hardware wallets are much more expensive than pieces of paper Cheesy

Managing them with ease is not possible. It's like blank chequebook signed by you and if you loose it then you lost your saved money too. It's so easy to cash them out if you have the barcode. With little efforts the money can be cracked from the wallet. I'm assuming it needs more upgrades regarding the time of use and security as well.

In view of the security hazards that are available on the web, equipment wallets are most recommended approach to guard you bitcoins. Online wallets have low honesty and are more open to hacks than disconnected equipment wallets. The arrangement of these wallets were created to have one of a kind keys to distinguish your bitcoin. On the off chance that you can bear the cost of one you should get one. Be that as it may, typically these wallets are utilized to ensure you investment funds. You keep your sparing bitcoin in equipment wallet and you're spending bitcoin on online wallet, thusly of sorting out your bitcoins can help you a great deal.

As the name suggests, are they worth it? Looking for security obviously.

I have looked at Trezor, Ledger and Keepkey

Not sure what is preferred, and is it correct that the wallets themselves doesn't actually store your coins? are they better than a simply paper wallet?

Thanks in advance.

Yes hardware wallet is more safer rather than a simple paper wallet. All the names that are suggested to you are all trustworthy for your bitcoin. But it's more expensive than the others.

Well, you can't blame those newbies for being stupid since you've been there too.
I wonder why you posted in this thread too knowing that this thread was not active anymore and instead, reporting those previous post will be much better.
Anyway, this post and those previous posts above me will be removed sooner or later.

I'm a big fan of Trezor and have owned one for the last few years and would recommend using them if you are want to use a hot wallet whilst being 100% sure that it's safe from any malicious activity on your computer.

Actually, this discussion here is pretty interesting, digging and learning more about the comparison of trezor and ledger nano S, mostly.
I've read about hardware wallet and how this cold storage is the best way to store your bitcoin, without knowing how it works, how to set it up. After reading more about it, we can get some conclusions and seems like ledger nano S as the most convenient way to do this. But, for those who don't have enough money to spare, in order to buy a ledger nano s, they can make it through paper wallet, it's secure and a good way for long term savings.

Why it should be removed? Yes, newbie bumped old thread, but information about hardware wallets which we can find here can be useful. It's not the same thing like to bump old spam megathread Smiley
Not long time ago I was really searching for comparison of hardware wallets. And now I'm waiting for me Ledger wallet to be delivered. Smiley
