The staff @ the bitcoin101 has been fortunate enough to have tested and used various "Cold Storage" hardware devices and Bitcoin wallets both on the PC and mobile. As a group we decided to share theses two products to store your bitcoin safely. Even though bitcoin transactions are secured by the most secure cryptography if you do not store your Private Keys and Seed Phrase securely you are at risk of losing all of your digital assets.
