A friend of mine lost all his Ethereum coin. He kept it in a similar purse. And then a bag with this wallet was stolen from him. He always carried it with him. And how safe is it from stealing the Nano S? I agree with The CC Forums, let's discuss here. I store all my coins only in this the online wallet or on the exchange.
A lost or stolen hardware wallet is useless to the person who gets it and not a big deal to the person who lost it.
As long as you keep the randomly generated key words and pass phrase stored somewhere separate, the coins are still yours and recoverable. You use them to create a new wallet to recover or buy a new hardware wallet to recover the original. Your friend did not lose his ethereum, but he’s out the cost of a Ledger Nano S.
And the idea of keeping on an exchange may be OK for frequent traders, but many original crypto enthusiasts still recall being burned by all the exchange hacks or those who went out of business taking the customers coins with them.
Find the official wallet supported by your coin or a proven safe multi-currency wallet, or get a HW wallet.
