How to store Ontology ONT and ONG?
Just like any other cryptocurrency with its own blockchain, Ontology ONT and ONG need secure storage that is designed for it. Security of your Ontology wallet should be the main focus. There are several criteria for keeping ONT and ONG safe that we will list here:

When choosing Ontology storage, pay attention to how secure a wallet you are going for is. Generally, we advise turning to non-custodial Ontology crypto wallets. Using custody-free cryptocurrency storages allows users to gain full control over their private keys and wallet backups. Besides, anyone going with a non-custodial wallet does not have to share their personal data with any third-parties.
Make sure the wallet is updated frequently
Security lies in development. If your Ontology wallet development team is not very active, this is sure a bad sign. To see the full activity of the wallet of your choice, you can browse community chats, social network pages, websites and blogs.
