You’ve set up your bitcoin wallet and have acquired some bitcoins, and now you’re ready to use them – what’s next?But be VERY careful to double- or triple-check that the address is correct – crypto transactions are irreversible, and a typo almost certainly means permanently losing the bitcoins you were trying to send. One way to avoid potential slip-ups is to scan a QR code (when available) for the destination address.
Mainstream acceptance has come in fits and starts, with regulatory approval proving hard to come by for a variety of reasons – not least of which the ever-present risk of theft via hacking or other means, which pose an especially large obstacle to attracting investment from mainstream institutions. Because crypto holdings are only accessible via a specific private key, they are susceptible to loss – literally, if the key is written on a piece of paper or a physical hard drive, methods of offline ‘cold storage’ – or through hacks if held in an online wallet.Reuters reports that over $800 million in crypto assets were stolen in the first half of 2018, creating justifiable concern for both owners and mainstream financial institutions alike. Some type of insurance coverage would potentially mitigate the risks inherent to owning crypto assets – if insurers are willing to play ball.

Most services allow you to import them directly from your wallet’s private key, but there are two key exceptions.
