With the holiday season upon us, now is the time to look for some proper gifts related to cryptocurrency. People often struggle to find deals in this regard, but there are some options well worth checking out. Below are some of the gifting ideas people should pay attention to, although there are a lot of other options to explore as well.
3. A Small Cryptocurrency Portfolio
Without going into too much debt, it may very well be worth it to set up loved ones with a small cryptocurrency portfolio this Christmas. We’ve seen a lot of people simply buy small amounts of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization and hold onto them for a full year. Now is a good time to do the same for your family members and significant other, even though there is no need to break the bank.
Although this may sound complicated, there’s no need to worry. Most of the top 10 cryptocurrencies can easily be purchased from online exchanges, and one can easily install all of the necessary wallets onto a USB drive for the recipient to spend the money as he or she sees fit. This will give them a hands-on experience with cryptocurrency, which can only be considered a good thing.
2. Books on Cryptocurrency and Blockchain
Although we live in an era where books are not necessarily popular in their traditional form, there is good reason to buy physical copies of books related to cryptocurrency. Not only do most of the covers look pretty amazing, but these books make great reference materials. An e-book is often disregarded after the first time it’s read, whereas a physical book will always sit on one’s bookshelf.
We have put together a brief list of Bitcoin and blockchain-related books for people to check out. Although there are many different books well worth your money right now, no one can deny the bigger titles will always remain popular. Cryptocurrency is a timeless concept, as it’s not going anywhere. The basics of cryptocurrency will not change over time either, which makes these books even more appealing. Moreover, they are easy to purchase, as most online retailers always have paperback and hardcover copies on hand.
1. A Hardware Wallet
One thing most people involved in cryptocurrency still lack is a proper hardware wallet. It is evident people need to take matters into their own hands when it comes to keeping their money safe at all times. A hardware wallet is the only way to go in this regard, even though no product supports all of the different cryptocurrencies in existence. At the same time, no one can afford not to own a hardware wallet at this stage.
There are a few options to choose from when it comes to hardware wallets. The Ledger Nano S is by far the most popular solution, although it may be difficult to get your hands on one before December 25. KeepKey is also worth checking out, as it is by far one of the more professional products out there. Trezor is another great option. With so many holiday discussions revolving around cryptocurrencies, security should be touched upon as well. It will be interesting to see how many hardware wallets will find their way to Christmas trees in the next few weeks.
