How to use a cold wallet with CryptoDeposits

What is a cold wallet?

All the cryptocurrencies are publicly recorded on their blockchain network. Wallets are access points to one’s cryptocurrencies, similar to logging in to one’s email account to access email messages. A wallet’s public key is like an email address, and a wallet’s private key is similar to a password for an email account.

A cold wallet does not connect to the internet, reducing the risk of being compromised. Cold wallets are only connected to the internet to transfer crypto, likely into one’s hot wallet, and are swiftly disconnected afterward.
