Desktop/hardware wallet is best solution for you.You can store your bitcoin into your desktop/hardware wallet,its safe and secure instead of on-line or other wallet. You can see here: https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet you will get all of wallet details there.just read them and chose which one you want.
There are many options to keep your bitcoin safely. One of the safest ways to store your bitcoin from stealing and hacking is that you should keep all the bitcoin in your hard cold mining pocket and not in the soft. Although the soft wallets are also very safe but by this way you will be more secure and there will be tension of stealing and hacking and you can also use it very easily and comfortably without any obstacles and hurdles.

Hardware wallet is the best to store your bitcoin but you need to buy the device and it's a little bit expensive. But there's one wallet that most likely a hard wallet it's the PAPER WALLET.

So what's a paper wallet?

A paper wallet is a document containing all of the data necessary to generate any number of Bitcoin private keys, forming a wallet of keys. However, people often use the term to mean any way of storing bitcoins offline as a physical document.

Advantages: The advantages of paperwallet is that you hold your private key and not stored online. Because if you place it to online wallet and the company gets hacked your bitcoin may hack too.

Disadvantages: If you lose the paper wallet. You will lose your bitcoin too.

The way I secure my Bitcoin almost ensure only I, and my family members know how to unlock my funds. I create a my own Bitcoin address and print it out as a paper wallet. I print three or four copies of it and laminate them. I have different spots that I trust and I know are secure and safe and store these paper wallets at these locations.

Maybe storing bitcoin for a long period of time is a good idea and you are securing your future. The advantage of storing bitcoin for a long period is bitcoin is simultaneously increasing it's value. There a fluctuation of value but the rising of it's value is time to time.

I'm not saying that I am the ultimate truth, but it seems to me that the people themselves create problems. Any physical media can break or get lost. Then you won't be able to access their bitcoin. I think it is safer to keep money at trusted electronic wallets parts.

I actually do not know as I only know and familiar with one wallet. Which is the coins.ph. And I think there are a lot more wallets out there that I need to try because a lot of my friends are telling me about it. But what I liked about coins.ph as aside from being a wallet, I can easily convert my Bitcoins to pesos and use that to pay for the bills from coins.ph itself. Also, it has different ways on how to cash out money, my favorite one is through bank transfer.

Hardware wallet would be the safest to store bitcoin for the longest time in my opinion because you get to manipulate and keep your private keys and only you would know them.

I should add this is the single greatest thing from getting folks to buy in.
Years ago I dabbled, kept my money on an exchange but when mount GOX happened I panicked. I had my stuff held on a Canadian exchange but that scared me badly.
If I buy in again I want to be able to pull funds onto a USB key. Anyone do that?

The safest way for me in keeping bitcoins is think like you're keeping a valuable item and must always keep it secure. That includes the device where you keep your bitcoins, to have it stolen will spell a great loss on your end. Also avoid providing information which is also associated to your bitcoin account. Also the best option is to keep quiet about having bitcoins. It’s a sure fool proof way of hiding anything valuable that you have.

The majority of people are saying that a more secure wallet is that you place your wallet because they've experienced how secure you are to their proposal. I'm absolutely sure that the coinbase is secure as well because my bitcoins are not missing and I often use an ether wallet and what most people suggest is that I'm also safer because they have the experience they are using.

Yeah, been keeping my Bitcoins here for a long time now I think that hardware wallets are the best. Otherwise, you can store your bitcoin in a random wallet and save your private key in somewhere that no one can find. It will make your bitcoin safer than ever because no one can access without private key.As suggested by other users, you should try hardware wallets as it is the safest way to protect your bitcoins.

You just need a wallet and as long as you make sure you don't loose the password of the wallet everything should be fine with hodling

I have no doubt that Coinbase is probably one of the most secure exchanges out there, but the argument you make (my bitcoins have always been safe there) is a shaky one.
It'll always be safer to be in control of your own coins, preferably by using a hardware wallet.

Exchanges can always disappear or get into legal trouble, however low the chances may be.

The safest way to store bitcoin for long term i think it's hardware wallet. My brother has it and it surely has high security. You don't really need to worry that you will lose your bitcoin because it's hacked or something, because it has some kind of double security or something, i don't really understand that can keep your bitcoin very very safe.
But online wallet is great enough for me, but it might be a bit risky, especially if you're careless enough to let people know your password or private key. But as long as you can be careful, then it won't be a problem.

Best option is a hardware wallet like Ledger, with a backup copy of the private keys on paper.

Send to some stranger on the internet with username containing "HODL". They are pretty much safe there Wink

He/she eventually uses Trezor or BIP38 encrypted paperwallets.
