If you are new to cryptocurrencies, you should familiarize yourself with a few things before diving in! 

Remember you are in control of your own coins and it is your responsibility to secure your funds. It is impossible to recover lost or stolen funds, since there is no centralized authority.

Remember never to keep too many coins on an exchange. Coins left on an exchange are not in your possession or control, and if the exchange gets hacked, goes out of business, or decides to scam its users, then your money is lost forever.

As a general rule:

  • Safety first 
  • Do not trust anybody (direct p2p trading) always use an escrow (person or account)
  • Store your Dash holdings on a hardware wallet if possible (Trezor, Keepkey, Nano Ledger). If not, then store your coins in the official Dash-QT wallet, or the official Electrum wallet.
  • Do NOT use exchanges as wallets; exchanges are for trading, not for savings 
  • Mobile Wallets should be used for day-to-day purchases, but do not keep large amounts of funds in them
