Technologically there is nothing stopping cryptocurrencies from changing the world, bypassing the need for conventional banking systems and flouting government regulation of commerce. We just need some great minds to implement this, and we need people to have the confidence to adopt it.
Following these steps is just one way to conveniently access your wallet while at the same time keeping your Bitcoins safe from theft or loss. The future of crytocurrency is predicated on trust and confidence in the system. Over time, better integrated solutions are likely to be developed for wallet security. In the meantime keeping ourselves safe from loss and theft not only benefits us personally, but also creates better confidence in the concept of cryptocurrencies, and ensures a more robust future for these technologies.
