How to Store Bitcoin
Bitcoin wallets store and protect the public and private keys, allowing you to send, receive, and store bitcoin. Bitcoin wallets can come in the form of software or hardware devices.
Bitcoin wallets hold a user's keys, allowing them to sign transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain. Wallets also allow users to receive bitcoin and store it securely.
A cold storage wallet has keys that never touch an internet-connected computer. Cold storage offers superior security at the cost of lower convenience.
