Like in real life, your wallet must be secured. Bitcoin makes it possible to transfer value anywhere in a very easy way and it allows you to be in control of your money. Such great features also come with great security concerns. At the same time, Bitcoin can provide very high levels of security if used correctly.Always remember that it is your responsibility to adopt good practices in order to protect your money.

I keep my bitcoin either on a hardware wallet i.e. Trezor or on a secure exchange like Paxful (with 2FA enabled).


Thus far, I have never been hacked and have kept all of my bitcoins safe using these methods.

I think that it is very important to have a strong password and it's often overlooked.

Live Casino is an online gaming platform where a dealer interacts with you during a game. It is more like playing in a brick-and-mortar casino. Yet, you play on a webcast from the comfort and security of your personal space paradox mg5050, anywhere in the world.

What I'm afraid of cold storage is my memory. I'm honestly a disaster to remember where I put things. I can't imagine if I lose it or if drinking something It end up soaking wet :(

Security should be the primary focus for any exchanges as well as for users, security software on the exchange server should scan all emails for virus, ,malware and other threats, they should have trusted SSL certificate for secure and encrypt communications between Exchange server and clients.
