CZ suggests that if you opt to store your crypto yourself you are in complete control of your coins. However, it also means that you have to face threats on your own.

Alternatively, you could store your coins on an exchange. However, as we’ve seen time and again, exchanges are prone to being hacked. The final option is to move your funds to a decentralized exchange. All these options come with their own pros and cons.

WhalePanda criticized CZ’s suggestions, saying that telling people to store their coins on exchanges is “absolutely horrible advice.”

However, as one Twitter user pointed out, WhalePanda may be missing the point. Instead of implying that one store’s all their coins on an exchange, CZ is simply listing the available options.

Ms Crypto-Lite responded to WhalePanda’s tweet suggesting that the best way to keep your coins safe is a combination of all three.
