Cold storage. Are you cool?
Updated: Mar 23, 2019
It amazes me how many people bought Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies and store it in their Coinbase.com account or in another exchange. They might as well deposit it into a bank that may and sometimes has gotten robbed. One reason for Bitcoin's creation was to cut out the middle man so you can take control of your own money. Don’t get me wrong, Coinbase.com is an excellent company, but you should not hold them responsible for securing your money. Be your own bank! Take responsibility for yourself and learn how to cold store your funds securely offline. Online exchanges can be hacked but proper offline cold storage cannot.
Be cool. Store Bitcoin as intended. Ice cold.
