“2018 showed cryptocurrency investors that there are many risks to mitigate, including security, so what should they do better in 2019”
Don’t leave your crypto on exchanges, especially big amounts. “Keys'“ to your wallets and login info to exchanges are two completely DIFFERENT things. The former means NO ONE can access the crypto while the latter means you trust the exchange’s insurance and security.
READ the INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND WRITE DOWN YOUR SEED RECOVERY WORDS.
IF YOU DON’T RECORD the words & SOMETHING SHOULD HAPPEN TO YOUR DEVICE, YOU LOST ALL YOUR CRYPTO.
DO NOT SHARE your KEYS with ANYONE.
DO NOT EMAIL them to ANYONE..
DO NOT STORE THEM ON YOUR COMPUTER or MOBILE DEVICES..
DO MAKE MULTIPLE COPIES OF THE recovery words.
DO STORE THEM IN MULTIPLE LOCATIONS.
DO NOT REVEAL their locations to ANYONE.
DO ACTIVATE 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication), ASAP.
Not a bad idea to get a few of these, have a backup… or three.
