I was thinking about the issue of protecting bitcoin wallets recently.
My thought was it's not enough to "back up" our wallet. You really need a "bank" (for want of a better word, it's one we all understand).
You want to be able to send your coins to a wallet that you KNOW can't be compromised.
The moment you assume a system can't be compromised is the moment you lose. Every system has weaknesses whether you know it or not. Anyone who needs to protect valuable information should have a healthy
sense of paranoia. You can never assume any one system is perfect, so don't put all your eggs in one basket. Research different methods of keeping your bitcoins, spread your risk around, and never, ever trust your entire balance of bitcoins to a single point of failure.
