Hardware wallets to hold the largest size of blockchain devices market during the forecast period
The hardware wallets segment is expected to dominate the blockchain devices market during the forecast period in terms of value as well as volume. This growth is attributed mainly due to the ability of hardware wallets to store the private keys of users without the risk of getting them exposed to malicious threats over the Internet. Hardware wallets are often referred to as cold storage because they are not connected to the Internet. When connected to a computer, a hardware wallet does not share the private keys with the computer or over the Internet. The only transaction that takes place between the hardware wallet and the computer is of an unsigned and signed contract. As a result, the private key remains secure in the hardware wallet. With the advent of cryptocurrencies, hardware wallets have become a critical requirement for crypto owners for safeguarding their private keys. Hence, security, ownership, and ease of use are expected to drive the market for hardware wallets from 2021 to 2026.
