I buy a Trezor. I put all my coins on it. It has me type out the "wallet seed", which is a series of English words in the right order, onto a paper. And maybe I even buy a metallic card thing to fireproof it. And maybe I'll even put it inside my fireproof safe on top of that.
And then somebody steals the paper. Or finds the phrase in the passwords.txt file in my computer.
And now they have my coins.
Reading the manual/intro to hardware wallets, the first thing they tell you is to back up the seed phrase.
But the seed phrase gives you instant and full access to the wallet!
This just makes my head spin. I don't understand how they can give such advice when this completely violates your security. I don't understand the point of having a hardware wallet when you completely bypass the security it gives by "backing it up".
