There are three main reasons to choose a hardware wallet over software-only options.
- Long-term Offline Storage - Hardware wallets provide their own built-in storage, making them far more resistant to hacking or malware, and an ideal solution for long-term storage of crypto assets. Offline means not connected or exposed to the internet.
- Security - Most hardware wallets utilize the most advanced encryption methods available. In comparison, software wallets are more prone to clipboard hacks and other vulnerabilities.
- Reliability - Since hardware wallets store your keys themselves, you'll never have to worry about losing your keys. The only time you'll lose access to your crypto and NFTs is if you lose your hardware wallet. (Hardware wallets also come with Secret Recovery phrases, so if you do lose your hardware wallet, you will still have your phrase to recover your wallet.)
