I got some newbie questions;

I bought some bitcoin on Coinbase.

I want to download the wallet, I'll probably put it on a USB then throw it in the safe. Could someone advise how I can download the wallet?

Once downloaded is it still also mirrored on coinbase?

I think you can't do that.. it's another type of wallet

https://community.coinbase.com/t/saving-all-bitcoins-on-usb-stick-so-they-are-safe-from-usg-confiscation/233/5 <-- there are some info as well..

  • You must register in another place to get this type of wallet.. + coinbase isn't that secure wallet if you search for security ;)

  • Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.
