How do I store my Litecoin (LTC)?

There are many Litecoin-based wallet options you can explore when it comes to safely storing your Litecoin, including using hot and cold crypto wallets. Conducting your own research is crucial to keeping your Litecoin safe.

What are Hot Wallets?

Hot wallets are crypto wallets that are connected to the internet. They offer better accessibility which simplifies more frequent trading. However, they offer less security against hacks and fraud incidents.

What are Cold Wallets?

Cold wallets are crypto wallets that are not connected to the internet. The two main types of cold wallets are paper wallets and hardware wallets such as Trezor and Ledger wallets. Cold wallets are a popular option for those who value security, or for traders holding Litecoin as a long term investment.
