Any suggestions for a good hardware wallet?
One that you can be installed on a USB for example.

Trezor was first. Their first hardware wallets sold in 2014 can still be used today, just update firmware. Compare that to companies like Case who were only in business for a year and whose wallets no longer function. Ledger is the main competition to Trezor while KeepKey is distant third. Some people prefer the UI of Trezor while others like Ledger Nano S. One minor disadvantage of Nano S is it takes two hands to push buttons. Either Nano S or Trezor will serve you well.

I'd go for trezor, it has never done me wrong.
Although I don't really have any experience with the other hardware wallets.

Without a doubt the best ones by far, and I would think the only ones, are Trezor, KeepKey, and Ledger. Those are the only companies I would trust with this sort of thing, plus if the device was to break you do have some sort of backup plan.

You can't install these on your own USB if I'm not mistaken, they actually give you their own hardware that you'd be buying, I think this is the safest way to go about this anyway. The worst thing I'd want is a generic USB to get confused with my school USB.

Here's a real style write-up about it - https://www.buybitcoinworldwide.com/wallets/ - I know if you check out Youtube they'll have a ton of material on this as well.

I highly recommend Ledger Nano-S, it is highly secured and have an elegant design and you can also store lots of other cryptocurrency like XMR, XRP, STRATIS, LTC, ETHER and many more.

Ledger nano s is the best in the market in my opinion. Trezor is good too, but ledger for me. Solid performance and it's a USB shape with a screen, easier to carry around on your person.

The new Trezor 2 is going to be released, is it supposed to be similar to the Ledger Blue? The Ledger Blue is very attractive, but it's very costly, I wonder how much the Trezor 2 will cost. I'm a fan of Ledger, hope it's features beat Trezor.  Tongue

Thank you for the recommendations, just a few questions. How many wallets I can create with a single trezor. Can I access it via web and lock it just incase it was stolen.

You can theoretically create as many wallets as you like... either by using different "account" values (m/44'/0'/0', m/44'/0'/1'/, m/44'/0'/2'/... m/44'/0'/n'/)... which is what happens when you click the "add" button inside of the default wallet app... however Trezor has a limitation that you cannot add a new "account" if the last one in the list is "unused".

OR you can create multiple wallets by using different passphrases... each passphrase will generate a different wallet (it is part of the "plausible deniability" functionality)



... One minor disadvantage of Nano S is it takes two hands to push buttons...
This really isn't true. You can easily use the Nano S one handed, I do it all the time...

present more hardware wallets are introducing in the market in that few are very secure and powerful. and some are not safe. so we have to choose and bring it. present we have to try to take a secure and less fee wallets. trezor is the best wallet so try to take this one. it has more secure.

You have to keep your bitcoins safe.

I prefer one of the following:

Ledger Nano S or a Trezor

These two types of hardware wallets are the most safe on the market and most popular. I have a Ledger myself.

Or you can buy an cheap android smartphone, install a wallet (Jaxx) and place it in a bank vault. I think thats the best way to store your bitcoins.
