If you decide to be a trader of Altcoins and you make a decision on how to buy Basic Attention Token in Australia with BTC Markets, your next task is to decide how you intend to store your new assets. Basic Attention Token wallets in Australia are a top pick for many crypto traders due to their convenience and flexibility. The two main types of digital wallets are:

  • Hot wallets — A hot wallet is a storage system that operates on a browser or app and is usually connected to your trading platform. This gives traders the convenience of being able to trade, sell or store their Ripple in one place. However, cold wallet storage is more secure.
  • Cold wallets — These digital wallets can store your cryptocurrency offline, typically on a USB. Having your assets stored this way can reduce your risk of being hacked or exposed to other kinds of cybercrime. But keep in mind that if you misplace your cold wallet, you risk losing your assets. To prevent a mass loss, many traders opt to use a combination of cold and hot wallets to safeguard their assets.
