A description of the wallet types
Why a wallet?
let me connect..
Hot wallets are Bitcoin wallets that run on Internet-connected devices such as computers, mobile phones or tablets. Private keys are secret codes. Because hot wallets generate their private keys on an Internet-connected device, they can not be considered 100% secure.
Consider a hot wallet like your wallet: you use it to keep money, but not all of your savings. Hot wallets are good for making regular payments, but not good for storing Bitcoins safely. Jordan Tuwiner Founder, Buy Bitcoin Worldwide
Generate your own wallets ..
Desktop wallets are downloaded and installed on the computer. If privacy is your most important concern, Bitcoin Core Wallet is a good option as it does not rely on third parties for data.
Hardware wallets are not for free.
But the price may be worth it if you own a considerable amount of bitcoins. A hardware wallet will protect a few hundred bitcoins just as effectively as a few millions. Hardware wallets are secure offline devices. You store your private keys offline so they can not be hacked. That means you can even use it on a malware infected machine
