[OLD] Best Practices for Cold Storage

[0]Google Drive backups allow those companies to access your email address, name, & Google profile picture. It's strongly recommended to use a separate Google account to use these apps.

[1]Blue Wallet's Lightning is custodial by default but users can opt to connect their app to their own Lightning node using LNDhub. The on-chain functionality is non-custodial.

[2]Bottle.li is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds.

[3]Opennode is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds. You can (and should) set reoccurring withdrawals to send any bitcoin you receive to your own wallet.

[4]Tippin.me is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds.

[5]Wallet of Satoshi is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds.

[6]As the wallet is closed source we recommend using 3/5 and only with hardware devices that you source independently.
