“If you don’t own your own keys, you don’t own your cryptocurrency.”
“Keep your funds safe, keep them off exchanges.”
We have all heard about exchanges going belly under, Mt Gox of course, exchange owners allegedly dying and taking all private keys with him, exchanges exit scamming, Binance being “hacked”, other big exchange hacks, etc.
It is crucial you don’t leave all your cryptocurrencies on one exchange. Spreading your risk over multiple reputable and insured exchanges is one way to go, another way is by using custody services or by keeping your funds on your own hardware wallet (and keeping this well locked away and for god sake don’t buy a used or ‘pre installed’ one from ebay as your funds will be gone in a flash).
On this page we are going to be adding all the best custody solutions.
