A cold wallet is a type of wallet where the private key or recovery seed never come into contact with a server connected online.

The most basic type of cold starage is a paper wallet, where the sensitive information is printed on a piece of paper. The most reliable type of cold storage is a hardware wallet, such as Trezor.
