You never know when that device you depend on might break. And it might be way worse than just a cracked screen: It gets completely trashed and inoperable. You can’t even connect it to a laptop to try and recover files. You wish you could tell your friends it’s because you got wild with your partner last night and crushed it during your festivities, but alas it’s much more lame: You left it on the hood of your car and drove off. Or maybe it’s stolen altogether. Maybe you have spazzy small kids and you come back in the room to little Tommy playing “hammer” with it. Need I say more? R.I.P. Phone. Anyhow, you shouldn’t be the least bit worried about your crypto. Why? BECAUSE YOU BACKED EVERYTHING UP. Right?
“Oh no, my Trust Wallet!” – said not you because you got your seed phrase written down.
“Oh no, my Metamask!” – said not you because you got your seed phrase written down.
“Oh no, my reddit vault!” – said not you because you got your seed phrase written down and your recovery password set up.
“Oh no, my Google Authenticator!” – said not you because you had exported everything to an old phone without a sim card in it.
If you haven’t backed everything up, what’s stopping you? Life might throw you a curveball 15 minutes from now. It will take less time than that to back everything up. Don’t let your assets sit on the chain indefinitely because you ‘never got around to it’!
