The best way to keep cryptocurrency safe is using Cyrptocurrency Hardware Wallet because of its Offline feature keep your cryptocurrency safe. If you don't want to use Hardware wallet then go with reputed Online wallet like Coinbase, Whaleclub etc. and must read the reviews before choosing the best wallet only at http://coinsesame.com

If you live with friends or other people that know about security seeds. Take your 12/24 words, and make a short story or essay with those words. Use 4-7 different colors to write the entire story, and write all the seeds with the same color. You can stick this to a wall and nobody will ever guess what it is, only if they have read this comment :P

Hi everybody. I have found a very interesting "Google Chrome Extension" for Bitcoin mining. You can earn up to 1BTC and more per month. It actually mines Monero and then converts it to Bitcoin. Everyone has their referal so you can earn more by sharing it with your friends and family. If you are interested text me I'll give you my referal. ://getcryptotab.com/80269

Hi I have a question. When you buy a bitcoin and put it in a paper wallet do you know how I can directly put the bitcoin from my wallet into Gdax exchange and cash that bit coin through Gdax to American USD or do I have to transfer my bitcoin from my paper wallet to block chain and then from block chain transfer to Gdax and then cash out. If you know how to do this please show me how because this is kind of confusing

what about coins/tokens that can't be put on trezor, mew, nano, etc. Is there an easier way to store them versus downloading each individual wallet like neo and other coins that are not erc20 and can't be stored on trezor, nano, etcl? I have a lot of coins on exchanges that I really dont know what to do with and don't want to have lots of diff wallets. any advice?
SpartanZombie (4 months ago)
so I'm simply pointing this out but if that really is your private key all someone has to do is screenshot it then print it out.so probably not the best idea to show that on youtube

If I hacker obtained your private key how would they know what wallet that key fit? Is there a universal way of using a private key? Would a hacker have to try out every wallet in a random way to find what the key was to?

Hi I just ordered a Nano S just to find out that some of my currencies are not supported obviously excepted Bitcoin and Ethereum but some aren't so my dilemma is how to keep all the others safe, and when you say "a private key" is that for every coin "you need a different key" or or can it  be for the entire wallet??? Thanks

@boxmining I have created a whole new alphabet system (replaced every character and number with a made up shape like #Hireroglyph) to write down my #privatekeys on #paperwallet and have various copies in few different places. The awesome thing about this is even if someone steals it they won't be able to read it. If you are into #cryptocurrency I suggest you do the same.

Jaxx Wallet is a scam. Apple features them in the APP STORE. Once you deposit funds they will not allow you to send funds out. Jaxx Wallet is a scam with backdoor locks.

Boxmining, would you recommend storing your currency on the exchanges like binance which also provides benefits like limit sell and buy while your currency is on their exchange ? What are the odds that you will lose money is there a statistical guidance ? Also I noticed on binance transfers/withdrawals one way is 0.001 BTC for bitcoin and 0.01 ETH which is rather high if I were to transfer back and forth. For a smaller amount of money under $8k that's a significant portion. What are your thoughts thanks

Question: If I bought two Nano Ledger S hard wallets, one for me and one for my wife, can I install them both on my (one) computer or will that somehow confuse the program or confuse the App?
IIAlbertII (6 months ago)
Hypothetically... if coinbase created you a wallet....and they went under or scammed everyone...do you 100% own that wallet in the exchange (coinbase) or they own that? So if they go under do they take your money. Or you still own that wallet with doller amount........its possible Madoff from wall street stole over billion dollers in ponzi scheme.
sean808080 (5 months ago)
IIAlbertII if they maintain the private key then they are the third party that crypto currencies were made to avoid. Best not to store funds on a third party service.

If you lose your Trezor: 1) You can buy a new, and restore you btc with your magic words. 2) Just because someone finds your Trezor doesn't mean he can hack it. They've put a lot of work into preventing this from happening. It's infinetely more secure than a piece of paper, at least. If you find it, you've got it.

I certainly hope these paper wallets you were showing were bogus wallets and not your real ones. As anybody interested would be able to copy them from this video. I hope an expert like you would not commit such mistake. Very good video.

cr8ive (7 months ago)
LOL...Don't worry about cyber security if you have no signal. . . It is still early days, but one thing is certain.  The government and financial institutions are already on red alert regarding all crypto currencies.  If anybody think they are going to give up their power to control society,  along with the power to milk them for profits,  they are in for a surprise.  Everyone seem to think they are untouchable in this "online virtual world",  but they forget that government has control over,  or can gain power over the signal you require to be online. Once the threat becomes to strong and they lose too much money,  they will simply cut you off from utilizing the network.  Already everyone that is on the Apple platform can be switched off by flicking a switch.  You cant use your iPhone if they don't switch it on. . . .and you cant do nothing if they decide to switch it off . . . .all the millions In crypto currencies will be useless to you if you cant access it. . . . like I said, early days. . . I no the crypto enthusiast will remain optimistic,  but lets also be realistic . . . .we all know what's going on behind the scenes where the power struggles for world domination is taking place . . . .Money is power so they will put up a fight to retain it. . . just saying, but all the best
Freedom Joe (1 month ago)
I was thinking the same thing, can’t the government simply prohibit you or block you from accessing your wallet online. What do u suggest? 🤔
AlgerianFalcon (5 months ago)
Does not exist. The goverments can still make ISPs to shut off all the sites they want to. Just like China have shut off Facebook, youtube.
Sam Kar (6 months ago)
cr8ive that is the idea this built on. We are yet to see it hit mainstream worldwide. Its huge, but not there yet. People are going to want to use trustworthy exchanges if they are investing thousands, hundreds, and millions. All the those exchanges currently do or will be required to verify all your legal documents. Plus they report large amounts. So in other words the government is okay with it because they let it happen

Where can I actually view my private key on Exodus wallet? I want to memorize my private keys. Also, (real dumb question) but it is a different private key per coin (1 for bitcoin, 1 for litecoin etc) not just 1 private key for the whole wallet correct?
David Harford (9 months ago)
I think I get it! So if I memorize the 12 word backup phrase this = my private key. Still not sure if this is the private key for the Exodus wallet itself or for all the assets. So if I have the 12 word phrase I can restore the backup even to another wallet, since the 12 word phrase = the private key? Thanks a lot for the super quick reply!
Boxmining (9 months ago)
its in backup. the 12 word backup phrase

Are there any tools you would recommend that allow you to generate a paper wallet offline? I'd like to be able to load a generator web page, disconnect my router, and generate a paper wallet. Secondly, how do you verify the hardware wallets to ensure they do not have backdoors of some kind? Is the software they run open source?

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
