I see many talking on this and also talks about the exchanges that are not that safe ...

To me , for my 200$ funds Smiley) , let's say I will recover but when u're growing and have x1000 more that could mean something.

are you having one of this?

Nope, cause i cant afford it and i dont think i need it. Im not store that much coin though. Offline wallet is enough for me, but still hardware wallet is safer.

If you have large cryptocurrency assets and you want to hold them for a long time, you really need to buy a hardware wallet.
But most of the time, it's relatively safe to just put them on exchanges. Grin

Personally I use a hardware wallet, but I have a lot more crypto than you. I think its a worthy investment if you want to get involved in this scene and you see yourself getting hold of more and more cryptocurrency.

These are the options I found available:

Ledger Nano S, Trezor, KeepKey, OpenDime, Digital Bitbox -  it seems the first ones are the best.

I heared there are some fireproof out there, not sure if i'll get that paranoia with these but ... when u own lots of BTC things change .

It depends on your confidence because not all crypto holders are interested on getting hardware wallet in order to protect their assets from hackers and other attacks.
I'm holding an asset of $40,000 now and I do believe it's time to protect my assets through hardware wallet and this time I'm going to order my first hardware wallet from online shopping.
It is indeed the best option than securing your digital key that could possibly stolen if you're not careful.

Like what I just said, it depends on your confidence and assets because a thousand or two doesn't seem to have hardware wallet for it but if it just like mine like I'm holding almost $40,000 worth of coins and tokens, I'm totally scared when somebody could access my laptop and my phone and then they could steal my digital keys so that's why I need to get my hardware wallet in order to have a place of mind all the time.

I am only keeping my savings in hardware wallets I am currently using nano ledger,
But I am also doing some alt-coin trading and sometimes I am sending my profits into the nano ledger.

I prefer Ledger Nano S because I often heard about it and I think it's the least cheaper than other hardware wallets available.
For me as long as it supports Bitcoin, Ethereum and LiteCoin like Ledger Nano S.
I want to secure my crypto assets as soon as possible because it's getting higher and higher the value and I don't want to feel sorry when someone has to be able to take it from me.

the best thing is put your coins in hardware wallet. but it's depend on how much cash in your hand. As at beginners, we can hold coins in exchanges and then on offline wallet. If it's huge, then we can go to hardware wallet.

Using hardware wallet is the best thing to do when you have digital assets. I also ordered trezor wallet some months back to store my digital assets.

I can highly recommend both Trezor wallet and Ledger wallet. They are interoperational, that is you may initiate any of them with the use of your 24-word backup - so you are not getting into a vendor lock with your funds.

Also, they are both very secure. There has been a vulnerability in Trezor, but for all I know it is no longer there.

They can pair with Electrum wallet or with MyEtherWallet, so the level of protection you get with those non-native wallets is high too.

So if you have any serious amount of money, I really recommend to protect them with a hardware wallet. The cost is really not that great for the protection and security level it gives.

Just a word of caution though. Read that account: https://np.reddit.com/r/ledgerwallet/comments/7obot7/all_my_cryptocurrency_stolen/
So you should ALWAYS buy it from the original vendor: buy Ledger from Ledger and Trezor from Trezor, don't fall victim will all your funds with smallish rabates offerred on eBAY.

I am holding long term investments and keep them in hardware wallet. This is the best and the safest way to keep it if you don't use every day for trading.

Do you guys think how safe a wallet is really matters?

Or is it more important to keep your pc/laptop safe from keyloggers, etc?
