When you own Bitcoin, the most important thing is the ownership and security of your coins. What is important is the key to access your wealth and crypto-assets: your private key.

The person who has access to this key is actually the person who owns the coin associated with it and can use it for whatever they want. When you buy crypto assets online, on a trading platform for example, you don’t control the exchange, the trading platform does.

A bitcoin wallet helps you protect and manage your private keys. The Ledger hardware wallet and the Ledger Live app are the most popular ways to save your money and give you the freedom to manage everything yourself. You can send, receive, buy and sell your bitcoins without compromising their security.
