Take cybersecurity very seriously. In the world of crypto, you are your own bank. There are a lot of people out there who are trying to steal your funds, so take extra precautions in securing your accounts and your funds.
👀WHAT TO KNOW AND PREPARE BEFORE BUYING CRYPTO
1️⃣Create a separate email for crypto-related transactions
Keep this email separate from the emails that you give out to people. Only you should know about this email account. While you can create a new Gmail account, you have the option of taking security one step further with Protonmail. It’s an email service that prioritizes privacy and security above everything else.
➜ Create an account on Protonmail: https://protonmail.com/
2️⃣ Use strong passwords
Create strong passwords that consists of letters (upper case and lower case), numbers, and symbols. Aim for a minimum of 12-16 characters and don’t reuse your passwords! If you’re having trouble memorizing passwords, you can use a password manager app like Dashlane, LastPass, 1Password, etc.
➜ Password Manager that I use: Bitwarden https://bitwarden.com/
3️⃣ Cryptocurrency wallets 101
Cryptocurrency wallets give users an interface so that they’re able to interact with their funds on the Blockchain network. Coins never leave the network. They’re only transferred from one address to another. There are three types of Crypto wallets: Software, Hardware, and Paper Wallets. If you’re planning to invest a large amount in crypto, consider purchasing a hardware wallet to level up your crypto security.
