The definitive handbook for navigating Web3.


Recommended Posts

Web3 emphasizes individual autonomy, contrasting with traditional banking where government-backed institutions safeguard your funds. In the Web3 space, concerns arise over the security of assets on exchanges like FTX and Mt. Gox, prompting the adoption of Web3 wallets for safer storage, especially for NFTs.

Web3 Wallets, either hot or cold, offer non-custodial asset storage using asymmetric cryptography with public and private keys. A 12-digit seed phrase grants access, but forgetting it means irreversible loss. Hardware wallets enhance security, keeping funds offline and enabling full control, even if an exchange faces issues.

Given vulnerabilities in centralized systems, using a Web3 Wallet becomes advisable for self-management of assets. HD wallets, maintaining public key anonymity, are a popular choice, and blockchain app development services can assist in creating software wallets.

Bitget Wallet stands out in the competitive crypto wallet arena, offering security, extensive functionality, and a user-friendly experience. It is free to use, with network fees for blockchain transactions. Withdrawals are flexible, and the wallet's safety is reinforced by its non-custodial nature, double encryption, and a $400M Protection Fund partnership with Bitget. Available not only as a mobile app but also as a Chrome extension, installation issues can be addressed by contacting Bitget Wallet's customer support on Telegram or Discord.

I feel the crypto space is not yet free from the threats of hackers and the reason for the 'not your keys not your asset' crusade becoming more prevalent. The truth is either cold or the hot wallet is not safe. The onus of the safety of our assets largely depends on us. Keeping seed phrase and password safe is very important and the choice of wallet will also determine the safety of ones assets and like you highlighted; Bitget wallet could be a safe place cos it hasn't been hacked since inception.

The exchange Wallet's safety measures underlined by its non-custodial nature, double encryption storage mechanism, and a partnership with Bitget that includes a $400M Protection Fund inspire confidence.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
