THETA, the decentralized video delivery network, currently now sitting pretty at around the rank 10+ spot on CoinMarketCap, is one of those cryptocurrencies that are still just in its infancy(at only 2 years old), but already managed to bulldoze over hundreds of significantly older projects.

You might be holding a good chunk of THETA tokens. But as you may know, having great and successful cryptocurrency investments are pretty pointless if your funds are insecure, and could be potentially stolen sometime in the future. So if you’re a holder of THETA tokens and are looking for a security guide, you’ve come to the right place.

  1. Storing your THETA through the official THETA Wallet
  2. Storing your THETA through the Ledger hardware wallet

Storing your THETA through the THETA Wallet

  3. Download your THETA wallet’s keystore file, and save it to your device. Preferably, save it to a cloud service such as iCloud, Dropbox, or Google Drive.
