While using a hardware wallet crypto holdings are stored offline, which makes it difficult for hackers to access the assets. As for users, they require access to a desktop that is fitted with a client in order to access their digital coins. The connection is established via a USB cable.

The imToken CEO noted that the such wallets indeed offer the best kind of protection but their adoption rate remains quite low.  Thus they felt the vacuum of collaborating hot wallets and cold wallets. They opted to integrated hot wallets with the security of cold wallets, evolving a better security for crypto assets. Users could manage assets with ease while ensuring the safety of their assets.
