If you analyze the financial articles in the last few months, you will notice that Bitcoin has become one of the favorite currencies around the world. The price of this digital currency has increased a few times in the last year. As expected, this increased popularity has led to many hacking attacks. Some of them were effective and resulted in lost bitcoins worth millions of dollars. As Bitcoin is becoming even more popular and many merchants are interested in accepting Bitcoin payments, it is not unreasonable to start thinking about the safety of your Bitcoins. According to many experts, having a Bitcoin wallet is one of the best options you have when it comes to storing Bitcoin.
Before we go into details and talk about these wallets, let us mention that you can turn Bitcoins into physical coins which is another good option for keeping your investment safe. There are a few services which are focused on providing physical bitcoins to buyers. These physical coins come with a special sticker that includes the exact amount of Bitcoin you have. If you want to get a physical coin, you will have to pay the bitcoins at a slightly higher prize. This is quite logical because you will have to cover the material used for the production of the coin and the shipping.
When it comes to wallets, people have a few options. Most of them use desktop wallets. They bring more than one benefit to their users. For instance, even though it’s easy to access an online Bitcoin wallet, desktop wallets are more difficult to hack. You can get access to your desktop wallet only when you are using your personal computer. In addition, you can include a few different levels of security just in case.
Some people are using paper wallets which also have a good level of security. It is possible to create a paper Bitcoin wallet with the help of a few different websites specialized in this kind of wallet. They are good for preserving anonymity too.
In the recent period, serious Bitcoin investors are using hardware Bitcoin wallets. They represent pieces of hardware like flash drives or external drives. This means that you can bring them wherever you want and use them on any computer. Thanks to these wallets you can remain completely anonymous. Of course, they will cost you more than most Bitcoin wallets.
