Let's assume that everything is fine with your cryptocurrency portfolio. You bought bitcoin a few years ago and even now you remain in the black. You don't even have to convert 110 ETH to USD right now to save your finances. You sometimes check the status of your exchange wallets and gradually buy more interesting altcoins. But even if everything is going in your favor, it makes sense to think about a more reliable wallet for your coins.
Hacking a solid cryptocurrency exchange looks unlikely. But not completely impossible. In addition, there are quite a few sites that are frankly dubious, those where security is not given due attention and those where not everything is in order with management. One way or another, while your coins are stored on the exchange, you do not control them. If something goes wrong, it is not certain that you will be able to fully recover your funds.
Among the tips for novice investors, there is often a recommendation to purchase a hardware wallet for large amounts and long-term storage of cryptocurrency. The idea of the best wallet is quite subjective. First of all, it is important that the device supports the coins you are interested in. Otherwise, the most secure wallet with the most advanced functionality is unlikely to be useful to you. In addition, the price of hardware wallets starts at about $50. Do not forget about the economic feasibility of acquiring such a gadget.
The flagship model of the Czech brand Trezor consistently holds first place in the ratings of crypto wallets. The device supports over 1000 coins and tokens. Since the release of the first device and until now, there has not been a single case of successful remote hacking of the Trezor wallet.
The device can be used simultaneously with the mobile or desktop version of Trezor, or with the Trezor Suite app. Thus, it is possible to combine high security of storage and convenient access to coins for intensive trading.
The Nano X model supports over 1800 coins and tokens. The wallet can be connected to internet-enabled devices via a USB cable or Bluetooth connection. Ledger is compatible with Linux, Windows, Mac, IOS and Android. To manage coins from a third-party device, you will need the Ledger Live app.
Ledger Nano can be integrated with the Metamask wallet and indirectly access DeFi platforms.
A very impressive novelty in the market of hardware storage for cryptocurrency. It meets the highest safety standard currently in force.
NGRAVE ZERO is the only wallet in the world that avoids the risk of third parties intercepting the recovery phrase, including manufacturers. At the same time, it is even more convenient to use compared to Trezor and Ledger. The only reason why it is not yet so popular among crypto enthusiasts is its novelty.
A good budget crypto wallet integrated with the Shapeshift platform. You can exchange 0.009 ETH to USD directly from your wallet. The device has a stylish metal body and a fairly large screen for viewing account information, etc.
Keepkey supports just over 40 coins and lacks Web 3 wallet integration, but can be integrated with MyEtherWallet. However, the relatively small number of supported coins can be a significant disadvantage for those betting on new altcoins.
Ellipal Titan does not connect to the Internet at all. Only QR codes are used for data transfer. This is the maximum possible protection against cyberattacks. The device supports 40 blockchains and over 10,000 coins and tokens, and its capabilities are regularly expanded.
Ellipal Titan is protected by a durable dust- and water-resistant housing and is resistant to possible physical impacts.
