What do you mean by cold storage

Cold storage is offline cryptocurrency storage - so any device not connected to the internet. That could be a laptop that you disable WiFi on after you make the transfer. If you wanted to you could throw the laptop in a Faraday cage or Faraday bag. Taking it a step further you could move the crypto to a PC and remove the WiFi nic and the Ethernet port.

Or it could be a hardware USB wallet.

To wonder how you got this far to even open an onion page... Not trying to be rude, but holy shit man. As simple as it is, you can just open up a fucking YouTube video and just type it in yourself.

Please learn how to use your brain or you will not survive on here. Please.
