Hacking the stock exchange and the ICO cannot be prevented. It will always be. Hackers are monitoring the entire network. It seems to me that over time the exchange will come up with a mechanism to delay the application for withdrawal of funds in order to be able to verify the authenticity of the request for withdrawal of the coins. The withdrawal of Fiat in my exchange occurs within 3 days. I think all this time, you can stop the payment if it were made by hackers. For me this delay will not be a tragedy.

We don't know what will be the future to these. But I do hope that cryptocurrencies are safe.
Hackers are everywhere but scammers are wiser. They're also everywhere, ready to deceive you.
We are now the part of Bitcoin and other crypto coins if anyone here is, as we know that the crypto market has survived a lot besides all these risks and now it is absolute by its security as there is no case recorded in the current time because Bitcoin mining is absolute now and not a single hacker can access to even a single coin. Cryptocurrencies are safe if you are careful and not opening your secret passwords of your wallet and doing the process in the light of market rules.

First of all, you need to hold the cryptocurrency exclusively on the hardware wallet. I prefer firmware wallet Ledger. In the Ledger Blue version, up to 10 coins can be wounded at the same time.
The safenest depends on ways we will use it having trezor or ledger can definitely help. And in terms of exchanges and visiting sites just avoid to be phished and always find time to learn to study the every crypto. It's good to know more and be guided.
We need to use good and safe wallets trezor is good to use but sometime it does  not appear to be safe the most, I think bitcoin  is safe using bitcoin wallets like blockchain which has private key and password not good to share with anyone, hackers are around us who are in search of chance to scam with us don’t open all kind of links to, people hacks by making some fake sites and names is as PROFIT MAKING s those are scammers they just attract people by such captions so don’t open unknown links.

Of course, we always need to be on our guard and be attentive, as hackers and scammers are everywhere not only in the industry, but also in the crypto currency. But you do not have to worry if you take all the precautions.

Its no longer news that an ICO in Japan has lost over $400 million to hackers. They promised to pay back investors who invested in their ICO. Thsi is a huge loss. After I read that news, I began to wonder. How safe is Bitcoin and Other altcoins? What measures should we take to avoid being hacked ?
It is true that we should be always careful because there are a lot of scammers and hackers here in the cryptocurrency world. My advice for you is improve your knowledge for you to protect yourself from hackers and scammers.

Yes there are a lot of hackers out there luckily there are no history of hackings in the bitcoins system it is still a mystery on why the bitcoins are unhackable. But the bitcoins is the secured thing we cannot assure ourselves that the wallet we are.putting our money into is a secured one because that is a different platform that is why those people who have a lot of bitcoin holding in their wallet they are now using an offline wallet where they are storing their holding in a flash drive like device. And that is really safe.

Remember that there is no safe in this world. Everything is vulnerable to criminals. In virtual world, hackers are very intelligent and deceptive. If you will not put any precautionay easures on your wallet or accounts, you will be hacked easily.

The cryptocurrrency itself, as what I mention to be Bitcoin and the other alternative coins are unhackable. A special character of cryptocurrencies is that it cannot be controlled, hacked or even manipulated because it is decentralized. What is hackbale are those individuals engaged in cryptocurrency industry. Our wallets are unhackable and it cannot be denied. To eliminate the risk of being hacked, try to become more careful when you are going to transact.

Its usually advised that bitcoins or any other crypto coins should never be stored in  any of the exchanges as it has higher chances of getting hacked.We earlier saw the collapse of Mt.Gox exchange which was followed by the hacking of some other exchanges.Also,we should never reveal our private keys anywhere.Also,we should not store our private keys in clipboards in our desktops as clipboard hackers could easily hack them.

Often time we see on the news fed that a new hardware is developed for safety of crypto ,a more advanced was put into the blackchian system  to protect the digital transaction. we new for the facts that a lot of hackers is in the treed, posting as Legit campaign project which attract newbie yet after the said project just disappeared on the treed, that's why, newbie investors should have time learning the digital transaction, more information should guide them in the day to day investment. patient and timing is also the key in this kind of business

Hacker's is very dangerous, as we knew it. As my opinion in order to pevent our cryptos being safe by this group of hacker's.  We should be responsible to not lettings our private keys or other important information regarding our wallet account to be exposes from other peoples. We have to protect it very well especially when we are dealing transaction our cryptos in the internet.

I agree always enable the 2fa or google authenticator and aside from that do not click any suspicious link think before you click because some hackers do this tricks like phishing site, then do not connect any devices on the public places and do not trust anyone to know our pin, password and private key.

Thanks to hackers, projects are coming up with more and more perfect models of protection and thus show developers that they need to be more careful about their work. And the security account of bitcoin can not worry, it has never been hacked.

Simply secure wallet addresses,keep private  keys in a very safe torage,let that important person you know it for future usage.Never trust any site that ask on your private keys because most of them were hackers.

We are never safe, and we will never be safe. Even in real life, or should I in person we can never assure the safety of our money in our banks despite the fact that is it already inside the banks. Even when we are outside our houses, we are prone to those snatcher or anything that steals from us. Everything is a risks. So far, the best thing we could do is to really be careful and try to invest on anti hacker systems.
Yeah you right. risk is always around us including our investment and our money. all we have to do is be careful and prevent the risk to happening. prevent with what? for example if you save bitcoin then you should keep it in a safe wallet like hardware wallet or if you keep it in online you should add 2fa

Recently there was a 120 billion worth of bitcoins that's been stolen this was way to much carelessness that's to big of a loss. And of course it affected the price big time all went red when the price was still on it's way to recovery this hackers should be traced and be put in jail as an example to others that there are consequences in life.

I think they are no safe in this world  especially in a internet world. Even a government security system has been hack. The only way we can avoid hacker is double check your filling up form. And dont go to the site that make you suspicious .

Use the latest version of the wallet, such as Electrum, Multibit. Do not visit malicious websites. If you have more $ I think you need to store coins in a hard wallet will be safer.

Well, most of the problem is not Cryptocurrency error. The problem is sometimes on 3rd parties, like the exchange, wallet apps, server providers, etc.
For example, Myetherwallet as the popular Ethereum wallet reported that they got DNS hack, so that's clearly the problem not from the Ethereum issue, but the wallet.

A most secured wallets can be safe that you have the private keys and don't put it in the web wallets because it was still hackable and can be known when it will come so it is advisable to keep your own coins into a safer wallets. We cannot assure the safety of wallets.
