Why you need a hardware wallet when lending

When you own crypto, what you really own is a private key that gives you access to your coins. You need to keep this key completely safe – just like you would with your bank card or cash. When you keep and lend your crypto online, on an exchange for instance, you are not in control of this key, the exchange is.

A crypto wallet helps you protect and control your private key. Ledger hardware wallet is the best way to own and secure crypto. They’re the only crypto wallets that securely store your crypto offline – safe from hackers.
