Hello Faizan,

The best way to secure your coins from hackers is probably to store your coins offline in a paper wallet or a hardware wallet like Trezor or the Ledger.
Here are the links to the official sites of these hardware wallet providers: Ledger and Trezor.

Protecting your wallet against the likes of hackers works best if the wallet is not accessible through the internet. So therefore storage devices such as a piece of paper containing your privatekey would be relatively safe, if the computer that was used to generate the paper wallet was not compromised to begin with. The reason as to why we rather suggest hardware wallets as most safe to use, is because most of the programs available to generate a paper wallet are third party programs.

You can use the following guide to create a paper wallet on an air-gapped computer here.

With kind regards,
The Anycoin Direct Team

To secure our bitcoin is avoid giving a personal information about you and don't give a private key of your bitcoin to a person you don't know very well. Make high quality of password and choose a better wallet.

Ledger is a hardware wallet which aim is to provide security even if your computer is compromised. There are many wallets which are also free and almost as secure as hardware wallets. Remember that hardware wallets don't guarantee 100% security. They also have security flaws which can be critical in some cases. There are many threads describing wallets types.

With bitcoin, you are your own bank, which means the responsibility of protecting your money. It's not always easy. And how the type of wallet you use really depends on if you plan to hold for the long-term or trade regularly.

Protecting your bitcoin really is dependent on how well you protect your private key. The absolute safest way would be to memorize it and never forget it. Easier said than done, but possible.

The next safest is either a paper wallet or a hardware wallet. Neither is perfect, but both are fairly good.

1) Paper wallet - you can use something like bitaddress.org to create a paper wallet, but these can be somewhat easy to mess up. Another drawback is, it's a piece of paper. I recommend making multiple copies, laminating them and keeping them in separate places.

2) Hardware wallet - as mentioned here, this is basically a USB stick that stores your keys and keeps them safe from malware. Nice thing about these is that you can plug them into your computer and still buy and sell crypto using them. Also, if you set it up, you can restore them if you lose the hardware wallet or it gets destroyed. The 3 most well-known hardware wallets are the Ledger Nano S, Trezor and Keepkey.

From my very first day here I own Ledger Nano, and for now I think this is the most secure wallet around here, and from your very first earnings in cryptocurrency I suggest you to buy one for yourself.

If you use the wallet with the open web wallet only it will be able to hack by the hacker mate. If you use the wallets with the private key access by you itself means you will never loose your fund at all mate. Kindly check the best desktop wallet and use it.
If you few amount why need to buy the hardware wallet simple savings bro. So check and use it mate.

Bitcoin is the most dominating crypto currency. As a result, hackers are more into hack bitcoin than the other currencies. So, it is very necessary to secure it. There are different ledgers have evolved which can help bitcoin from hacking. Legder Nano is also good for this.

You must use hardware ledger. It will assure you the most secured wallet system to store you bitcoin. So my receommendation is for ledger nano S or cold storage system.

With the rise in popularity and demand of crypto currencies like Bitcoin, the risk of getting your coins stolen has increased. Hacker will try to steal the coins or scam coin holders to obtain coins. In orders to secure the coins from potential hackers coin holders must choose a better wallet, having difficult password to the account and keeping the computer clean form malware viruses.

It is a must to secure your bitcoin from hackers. And the safest thing for you to do is in-store it within a wallet. Since it is used offline your transactions would be traceless to those hackers. You could have your transactions without worrying that it might be viewed by anyone else other than you. Wallet is also convenient for you because you could have it always and need not to use the internet since it is offline. And of course always keep your wallet with you.

Bitcoin provides one of the most high qualified security system, it's not easy to stole your currencies from your wallet but for better protection it's better to access it offline , and be bit creativity about your account password so that the hacker can't reach so easily.

Hello,

I have a hard time figuring something :
do hardware wallets like Ledger Nano S or KeepKey are able to store tokens, like ERC20? 
If not, what is the best way to store/secure these tokens?
Thank you.

By using Bitcoin Core as an offline wallet to secure your Bitcoins, you make sure, that you don't have any third party involved and it's for free!

Bitcoin is not a bubble, it's the pin!

I always prefer to use hardware wallet. Since this is an offline wallet, it is not easy to hack. So Hardware wallet like Ledger Nano S is highly recommended for keeping your crypto safe from hackers.
