I’d like to start by saying with all the great innovation and opportunity that bitcoin, blockchain and crypto-currencies provide they are a security nightmare. Also security is one of those dirty secrets no one really like to talk about, especially when you have your digital assets stolen.  This lack of information and clarity gives hackers and advantage.  The goal of this post and the many posts, videos and podcasts to follow will explore and provide clarity to these issues to help everyone be secure with their digital assets.

Point #1 – You are your security firm – previous your bank protect your assets for thefts, loss or error.

You are on your own now, that’s scary and empowering – take baby steps to ensure you are building a secure foundation for your digital assets to be stored.

Your weakest point is going to be your desktop computer & your smartphone. You will need to secure both if you want to not lose all your coins & digital assets.

Point #2 – Understand you are NOT SECURE – right now!

You need to secure the following:

  • Desktop computer ( Windows )
  • Smartphone
  • Wireless provider
  • Email provider
  • Internet Access ( Router & VPN )

Next Step: Securing your Windows computer

 

Crypto Updates via Email

This email newsletter will only go out when some BIG is happening. This is really just a back-up if something happens to any social profiles. Having an email contact allows me to share without relaying totally on social media profiles.

For now I see that being one email a month max & only if news arises.
