Hey @kareniandean !

There’s a few things you can do:

  • Download a VPN such as ProtonVPN when going on the internet (mobile and desktop), alternatively you can use ‘secure browsers’ for free e.g Brave

  • Two-factor Authentication (mobile and desktop)

  • Store your crypto in a hard wallet (cold storage)

I wrote an article about how to keep your bitcoin safe on my website beginnerscryptoguide.com/how-to-keep-your-bitcoin-safe - there’s a few more tips on there :slight_smile:

I hope this helps - let me know if there’s anything else you may need help with. I’m no expert, but I’ve been in learning crypto/blockchain daily for almost a year now :slight_smile:

Thank you Ella (@itsellageee) for helping out. Those tips are very great.

@kareniandean Everything Ella said is a great advice. I personally encourage you to get a hardware wallet as soon as possible. It puts you in the control over your funds as well. Just be careful and try not to lose a recovery phrase once you generate one. If you are confused on how to use a hardware wallet such as ledger nano s, feel free to message me back. :smiley:

Actually @Mauro - have you any idea why @kareniandean is receiving unknown messages since downloading swiss?

I downloaded this myself the other day - I haven’t had any issues/weird texts/ or anything? :woman_shrugging:

I hope its not a fake application :crossed_fingers:. It could be unrelated. Hard to say.

In order to transfer an erc20 token to you ledger nano s, you need to send it to your ETH address that the device generated. Every ETH address can hold erc220 tokens. When you want to send the tokens out of the device, you will have to enable a setting in the ETH application called “contract data”. (This is done on the hardware device itself.)

Yes, SwissBorg ecosystem uses an erc20 token CHSB. Hope this helps. :smiley:
