Kinesis CoolWallet Pro - What you need to know

  • Updated

What are the benefits of a hardware wallet?

Hardware wallets are protected from computer viruses that attempt to hack or steal private keys.

By storing your digital currencies in a hardware wallet, you are securing your crypto offline, keeping them an extra step away from hackers.


What is cold storage?

A 'hot wallet' refers to a cryptocurrency wallet that is connected to the internet. Generally, hot wallets are easier to set up and access but are more susceptible to hackers, possible regulation, and other technical vulnerabilities.

A 'cold wallet' refers to any cryptocurrency wallet that is not connected to the internet making it the most secure option as it’s completely offline providing a greater level of safety.
