I’ve seen some newbies asking about hardware wallets without a proper understanding of how they work.
These are probably people that have less than 0.10 BTC on an exchange.
Under that scenario, I would not recommend a hardware wallet just yet.
It is much more important to take control of your Bitcoin **as soon as possible**. The friction of ordering a hardware wallet, waiting for it to arrive, and learning how to use it, is what keeps many people from self custoding their money.
Once you have control of your Bitcoin, you can then take your time to learn more about how mnemonic seeds, signatures and addresses work.
The 2 hot wallets I recommend are:
**Muun Wallet**: [https://muun.com/](https://muun.com/)
**Blockstream Green**: [https://blockstream.com/green/](https://blockstream.com/green/)
They are both open source, user friendly, Bitcoin only, and have good reputation.
Muun supports Lightning Network.
Green allows you to use your own servers, connect with Tor, link to Ledger/Trezor, etc.
Like I mentioned before, the most important part is to withdraw your bitcoin **NOW**. Even if you have a lot of money. You can always move it to a hardware wallet later on.
