Hi,

Does anyone know where I can hold my bitcoins on a server and have them insured against damgage theft?

Someone referred to bitcoins that are not online as being in "cold storage," and that sounds strange to me.

I have a laptop that is not connected online and I was just think about storing the coins on there.

Thanks.
David
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.
