If you’re trading crypto over on the Binance exchange it’s important to withdraw from Binance and not to keep your crypto stored on an exchange long term. This also goes for other exchanges such as FTX, Coinbase or Kraken. As with any centralized exchange, you don’t have access or control over your private keys and are entrusting a 3rd party. Also, an exchange that holds a lot of assets is far more likely to be a target for hackers.
Its, therefore, recommended moving your crypto assets from Binance and into the safety of a wallet once you’ve finished trading. One of the safest wallets would be the likes of a hardware wallet like a Ledger Nano or a Trezor. Hardware wallets allow you to keep your crypto assets offline and away from any potential threats.
