Setup recurring monthly bitcoin buy straight to your own wallet
Storing bitcoin safely needs to happen offline on a dedicated device called a hardware wallet. We call this "cold storage".
Anything stored online can relatively easily be hacked. Storing your bitcoin on a hardware wallet detached from the internet is the single most important thing to do after buying bitcoin.
There are dozens of hardware wallet options. We have tried & tested a large variety of options and found that most are secure but also very hard to use. Bitsaga offers 3 hardware wallets with a strong focus on being easy to use and also being bitcoin-only. Being bitcoin only strongly reduces the attack surface of a hardware wallet, making them simpler and safer.
