The safety of your bitcoin/assets relies on you. Put some antiviruses on your device and make sure its always updated so you wont get phished. Do not store you private keys or passwords on a cloud storage. If necessary, write it on a notebook and also make sure it wont be lost or get wet. Do not trust anyone by sharing your private keys. People changes when it comes to money. Hackers today are so aggressive so always be safe.

The device cannot have several antiviruses. And as you know most of them are not so much effective. I agree with you that the private key must not be stored in a cloud storage. Meanwhile, no one can get an insurance against hackers' attacks.

I think, if you have so much money invested in Bitcoin or other crypto currencies, you'd better do everything possible to put your pc in safe conditions. I would recommend you to keep your wallet's private keys on a paper and hide it somewhere. do a backup on a memory stick. these are just some of the recommendations, I think there are more))

I am hearing a lot of users' complaint about having a problem transferring their BTC, Nowadays I am not selling it because I am "Hodling" it for future. But I am a bit of scared now because all this news about the people's BTC being hacked.

What should I do If My wallet or BTC gets hacked?

In that case you lose your money - no-one can help you.

That is why Bitcoin will ultimately fail, it is far far too risky in terms of security. Hackers will always be better than the average user or average investor

If your wallet is hacked, then there is no way to recover your loss. The only thing you can do is to prevent hacking. The cold wallet is the best place to store your BTC!

The biggest danger of using the Internet comes from hackers, because data vulnerabilities can be fixed and compensated, but hacking can make you bankrupt! And you don't have any way to recover your losses!

As a matter of concern this should be the first part of information one should know before acquiring btc for the first, since it is a valueable then every necessary security should be provided for it, Some external storage would help

We all should as there is always that possibility, all you can do is have your computer as clean/safe as you can and don t have any keys written down in a file in your computer, always have them on paper somewhere safe or in a memory stick, because as long its not connected to the internet its safe from hackers.

From a certain perspective, i am very fortunate because I don't have the trouble of being afraid of being hacked. Since you have a lot of bitcoin, you just need to cost a little money, which is buying a hardware wallet to store bitcoin.

think positive. Instead of complaining , you should rather work hard towards the security of your bitcoins. You sound like you're having lots of them and i would love to sleep in your home haha. just kidding.  Make sure you don't usually login to your bitcoins account on computer. I would recommend   
you use an app. There is an app for blockchain. I usually use that one and make sure you have strong password and enable all the securities which would make your account strong like 2  factor authentifications and that all that .

Hi, you're doing well that you've decided to hold the bitcoin and not sell it. If you have already decided on this option, you should keep your bitcoins safe by doing so - save your privkeys and best would be the decision for some of the cold wallet. Personally, i just heard about hacked exchanges and wallets that were on the exchange. For this reason, it is my advice, not to keep your investments on the exchange. They can guarantee you for your cryptos, but certainly not in full 100% height.

i think there is really no cause for alarm, no reason to be scared about loosing your btc, the only way that can happen is when your private key is leaked out, if not then the blockchain wallet is the best protected and secured wallet to store bitcoin.
