Best Hardware Wallets: Secure your Cryptocurrency

Purchasing cryptocurrency is not the only thing which one should consider if somebody wants to venture into cryptocurrency investment and trading. Keeping your digital assets is one of the most important things. There are four places where purchased cryptocurrency can be stored – online wallet (internet or mobile app), desktop software based wallet, hardware wallet and paper wallet. All online website based wallet or software installed on any computer connected to the internet are prone to hacking which ultimately may lead to loss of your digital assets. Without any doubt, t the paper wallet is the safest way to store your digital assets but it is not the most convenient way. That’s why paper wallet is not most popular among people. However, offline hardware wallets are becoming very popular these days as the alternative to paper wallet which also gives the convenience of using it when required.

Following is the list of offline hardware wallets where one can safely store digital assets.

Personal suggestion

However, there is very slight chance of hardware corruption but personally I think hardware wallet is best and convenient way to store and use cryptocurrencies. As Ledgerwallet support many currencies so this may be best choice to go with. If one wants to store only Bitcoin then Legerwallet or Trezor both are good options.
