Buying your first Ethers
At first you should broadly inform yourself on the project and risks involved in investing and trading ether. Furthermore it is important to keep in mind a number of security practices.
Always start with a small amount as part of a set of test transactions. See if all goes well and make sure you fully understand the technical functionality of your ether wallet. Make sure you have saved your recovery passwords and that you have a back-up in place.
When using an online wallet please note that online wallets are particularly suitable for relatively small investments. If you have plans to make some significant investments we strongly recommend to choose a hardware wallet.
A hardware wallet provides the highest industrial safety standards and would allow you to enjoy the ultimate convenience of sending and receiving ethers.
