Question about hardware wallets in general and their use with mining
1) Is the whole idea that the risk of having your crypto stolen is minimized by having your wallet exposed to the open world (the internet) only when your hardware wallet is plugged into your computer as opposed to all the time? Beyond that, do these crypto wallets do anything special that adds even more layers of security?
2) For miners, do you periodically plug in your hardware wallet to your mining rig to transfer the freshly mined coins from the wallet on your computer to the hardware wallet?
I am looking into getting a hardware wallet after reading about a bunch of people getting their crypto stolen. I don't have much RVN right now but if I keep mining throughout the year, I will accumulate a good bit.. enough to warrant getting a hardware wallet at least.
