Summary: Hacks have been intruding on the cryptocurrency space for years and have played a major role in the evolution of secure storage solutions within the industry. From Mt. Gox to present, investors have been cursed by malicious malware and hackers. These devastating stories all lead to the same problem of protecting ones private keys in the most effective and secure manner. Multiple solutions evolved from this problem: online wallets, mobile wallets exchanges and hardware wallets. Each option has its own utility in the industry, but hardware wallets standout as the most advantageous.
