Series: Self-Custody Can Be The Best Way To Bitcoin
Read now to learn the basics about several ways to self-custody your Bitcoin.
Fiat money is decidedly risky: It’s constantly depreciating in value thanks to government-sponsored inflation and money printing. And it’s always at risk of being outright confiscated or censored by the banks custodying it for us or by the governments that control them.
