5 Crypto Gift Ideas For The Holiday Season
A Hardware Wallet:
There have been lots of scams happening lately with exchanges getting hacked, so it has been advised not to leave your funds on crypto exchange platforms. Due to the vulnerability of online/software wallets, storing your cryptocurrencies in a hardware wallet is best.Â
Hardware wallets, also known as cold wallets, are more secure because they cannot be accessed without the correct PIN and private keys. The most popular cold wallets are the Ledger Nano X and the Trezor Model T.
A non-fungible token is a digital asset based on the blockchain, with unique metadata and identification codes that make them different from each other. An NFT can come in the form of digital art, music, poetry and more.
You can purchase NFTs from online marketplaces such as Opensea, Foundation, Rarible and more.
To purchase a non-fungible token, you need to have a crypto wallet and Ether in your wallet because instead of cash, you will use ETH to buy the NFT.
For the big fans of crypto, get them some merch! It could be a shirt, keychain, hoodie, hat, etc. There are various crypto merchants out there for you to choose from. Are they huge coffee drinkers? Get them a crypto merch coffee mug. Remember, it is better when you are intentional.
Crypto Gift Cards:
Yes, gift cards are not limited to clothing stores, shoe stores, convenience stores etc. there are also cryptocurrency gift cards! Crypto gift cards are online gift cards that contain cryptocurrency instead of fiat currencies. Like any other e-gift card, crypto gift cards can be purchased anywhere and sent to anyone – even across the globe! A good choice is the Binance Gift card.Â
