    Online wallets offer better convenience. You can generally access your Bitcoin from any device i.e, cellphone laptop TAB if you have the right passwords. All are easy to set up. The disadvantage is the lower in security. With your private keys stored in the cloud, you have to trust the host's security measures.


    Hardware wallets
    are small devices that occasionally connect to the web to do crypto-currency transactions. They are extremely secure than online wallets, as they are usually offline and therefore not hack able by hackers. However, they can be stolen or lost thats the disadvantage. Some large investors keep their hardware wallets in secure locations such as bank vaults and safes.

    Yeah, I've used both types of wallets, and in my opinion, online can be more useful at times.

    I use offline and online for certain things. I tend to store most offline in a trezor or paper wallet.

    UPDATE!! Ethos wallet holds 100+ tokens/coins and not in investment pools for free I might add. They have no access to them but has also today announced a full partnership / integration with Shapeshift. This is huge! In two months or so will also be able to do swaps within the wallet. Yes , that is huge. The wallet itself is doing the job but they are still doing continuous improvements as it is not perfected yet. This wallet is far superior to any old or new and has just started with Worldwide Deployment. I highly suggest checking it out once again.

    Hardware wallet are definitely much better in terms of security. Like trezor, for instance

    Yeah I'd definitely recommend people investing in a hardware wallet if they haven't done so already. I have the Ledger Nano S & it's pretty good & easy to use.

    Did you hear about CORE WALLET? Core Wallet allows you to see the entirety of blockchain’s history. It means that when you install this wallet your computer downloads the whole blockchain. Core Wallet is a decentralized solution for storing your digital assets. Thanks to that you are only one who poses full control over your funds. You are the bank for yourself. In my opinion it's an interesting tool. I'm happy to try it. What is important - this wallet is free to use. I'm sending you a link from FuturoCoin website where you can find more information if you are interested: https://newsroom.futurocoin.com/deposit-money-in-our-core-wallet/ :emoji_kissing_heart:
