Most Vertcoin users are currently using or have used the web wallet app available directly from Vertcoin. Advertised as "a secure and easy way to send Vertcoins to friends or family." Recently the online wallet has come under attack. A statement from Vertcoin... "Due to excessive server load from various factors including DDos, people mining into the wallet and general stability issues, we have taken the decision to permanently shutdown Vertpunk."
Unlike online wallets a hardware wallet is impervious to these sorts of attacks. If you want to truly secure your cryptocurrency then take control of your private keys with a hardware wallet. The Ledger Nano S hardware wallet supports the Vertcoin token. It works on Windows, Mac OS & Linux operating systems. It requires Google chrome and a USB port to plug in your Ledger Nano S. It will not work with Android or iOS.
