Anyone have a hardware wallet?
« on: August 28, 2017, 07:14:26 PM »
So far i've been printing out all my account info, private keys etc so that I have a record unless my laptop blows up or gets lost.  What's the advantage to having a hardware wallet like one of the ledger ones?

I didn't quite get your question. What do you mean by hardware wallet? Is it like a separate thing or what?

Yes, a hardware wallet is a device where you keep your private keys for your cryptos offline and thus not able to be hacked.  There's other advantages as well.  The Nano Ledger is an example of one: https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-nano-s

Oh, I think I get it. It's something like an offline wallet or even like a paper wallet. Their security is truly much higher than regular ones, it's been verified.
