An interesting reminder.  A crypto-currency is essence a Bearer instrument.  To protect these cryptographic assets the private keys must be retained in a way that guarantees they will never be lost or acquirer by a foreign body.  stoing in an electronic device does not guarantee long term retention.  Maybe paper stored in a vault but then?

Worth watching this video. Highlights some of the bigger implications for society of adopting digital currency. Issues that are often overlooked by crypto evangelists or tech enthusiasts but that need wider consideration and discussion.
