Cold Storage 

A cold wallet is an offline crypto wallet.The most common type of cold wallet is a hardware wallet.

Hardware wallets are small devices that connect to your computer and store cryptocurrency. They connect to the internet when sending and receiving cryptocurrency.

Each hardware wallet has a recovery phrase. This phrase allows you to recover your coins even if you lose the device itself. It’s important to keep this safe because anyone who has it could take all your coins.

While your crypto is offline, it can’t be stolen by hackers. That’s why it enjoys the highest level of security.

Hot Wallet

A hot wallet is an application that stores cryptocurrencies online. It can be a desktop or mobile app.

Like hardware wallets, hot wallets come with a recovery phrase. You can use this phrase to get your crypto back if you ever lose access to the hot wallet.

Even compared to a cold wallet, a hot wallet is more simple and convenient. However, hot wallets are facing the risk of being hacked.

Paper Wallet

Paper wallet is a kind of cold storage. It is available as a printout of public and private keys, usually as both a string of characters or scannable QR codes. 

The public key acts as an address for the wallet that can be deposited in cryptocurrency. The private key acts as the password of the wallet that can prove your ownership of the wallet. You are free to share the public key with other people for deposit, while the private key should be kept secret.

The security of paper wallets acts the same as cold wallets and it’s free. But if you don’t back up the private key and lose it, you can no longer access your bitcoin wallet unless you figure out what your private key is.
