    Where do you store your cryptocurrency? Do you hold your own private key?

    Why do you have to be a owner? You can have an empty wallet...

    Why would you need / want a wallet if you have nothing to put in it ? For show ?

    As I understand it, my cryptocurrencies are all stored in the various blockchains, with the exception of IOTA which is stored in some sort of tangle or knot.

    My private keys are mine, for the currencies that matter. Those I have for short term are usually in exchanges, unless they're ERC20 tokens in which case I have my private keys with which I access them via MyEtherWallet or whatever is convenient. For rare exceptions (e.g. where a light wallet isn't available - i.e. I don't want the full blockchain on my hard drive) I have coins with larger totals that are in an exchange. Otherwise Exodus, Jaxx, Coinomi, and some single-coin wallets like Neon and IOTA. Exodus is my main one.

    All behind strong passwords stored in KeePass in a virtual drive encrypted with TrueCrypt. So, yes, some vulnerabilities, and a linux virus/malware could rob me of my invisible internet beans, but I haven't invested more than I can chew.

    Eish.
    "Car owners - where do you park your car?". The answer to that isn't: "You don't need a car to have a undercover parking bay". That doesn't even follow from anything.

    Store mine on Jaxx for now and an exchange or two.
