Protecting Your Crypto: Self-Custody Wallet Options and Developments
Tuesday, January 31st
4-5 pm EST, 1-2 pm PST, 2-3 MST

The FTX collapse offered a stinging reminder of a crypto refrain, “Not your keys, not your crypto” (or “not your keys, not your coins”). The adage stems from the philosophy that investors can only have true control over their crypto when it’s held in a wallet (which stores and manages the private keys associated with a user’s crypto), to which the investor holds the lock and key. More experienced crypto investors are very familiar with this notion, referred to as “self-custody.”

Sadly, the recent FTX fraud, exchange bankruptcies and runs on other crypto exchanges, left many investors wishing they had followed the not your keys, not your crypto, maxim more closely. Our panel will help investors understand the options now available and how self-custody may evolve in reaction to the challenges of 2022.

-Discuss the differences between holding your bitcoin and crypto on an exchange versus in a wallet
-Explore the various wallet options available and how to select the best one for your needs
-Explain how to set up a wallet
-Share risks involved with setting up wallets

The webinar is part of Earnity’s recently announced expert speaker series through BigMarker. With these panels, Earnity, together with crypto industry leaders, are shedding light on the crypto market, crypto trading, crypto investing, crypto financial planning, crypto tax planning, as well as related macro economic trends and news developments impacting the crypto market and industry.

Future crypto expert panel topics include: ramifications of the FTX collapse, financial planning for 2023, tax planning for 2023, and more.
