By CoinGecko | Updated on Mar 03, 2020
Wallets that are stored offline and can only be connected to the internet through physical effort (eg. plugging in the USB, turning on a hardware wallet). This provides an extra layer of security compared to wallets that are stored on devices connected to the internet (eg. phone wallet).
