Best Practices for Storing a Wallet’s Mnemonic (Recovery Seed)

Learn the best practices for storing your wallet's recovery seed and keeping your mnemonic safe.

One of the benefits of blockchain technology is that, as individuals, we can regain autonomy over many different elements of our lives, including our money, our identity, and our data.

With great power comes great responsibility and when we regain control over these elements of our lives we also acquire the responsibility of keeping them secure. We use wallets to interact with the blockchain and to store our blockchain based assets (this is only if you use a non-custodial wallet, and this is where the phrase “not your keys not your coins” comes from).
