A cold wallet or cold storage is a type of cryptocurrency wallet aiming for maximum security. Unlike hot wallet, cold wallet never exposes the seed or individual private keys to an insecure environment connected to the internet (such as a PC or a smartphone).

One of the most reliable types of cold storage is a hardware wallet, such as Trezor.
