This isolation from online networks significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access or hacking. Cold wallets are typically hardware devices, paper wallets, or air-gapped systems. They are ideal for long-term storage of cryptocurrencies and are considered highly secure.

      Hot Wallet:

      In contrast, a hot wallet is an online wallet connected to the internet. It facilitates quick and convenient access to cryptocurrencies for trading, transactions, or other immediate needs. Hot wallets include software wallets, mobile wallets, and wallets provided by cryptocurrency exchanges. While hot wallets offer accessibility, they are more susceptible to security risks associated with online connectivity.
