    this assumes the drive doesn’t go bad … which they sometimes do 🙂

    I haven’t checked on it in awhile, because i prefer to use a service provider, but you at least used to be able to print out the keys for your wallet on paper as a backup. that of course assumes you dont get robbed or your house burnt down …

      hey @mikedoestheart – for sure, for about $100 getting a Ledger Nano S off of Amazon, and then protecting all the info and seed # phrases on a piece of paper – this should keep your crypto safe and secure. If Metamask EVER, I mean ever gets hacked (who knows), then you are screwed.
