    I think we'll see hardware wallets keep improving and become more user friendly.

    Key management is an interesting topic, I've heard of a few companies that offer it as a service. Don't know how they work though. They're the same companies that offer backup tape storage etc.

    Sort of like a vault, but where they will collect your devices onsite and have a few checks for ID etc.

    That said they're probably overkill for 99% of users. From what I've seen, a hardware wallet for offline storage is seen as best practice and more than adequate.

    Scott, every adult you know has a bank account. I'm in good company.

    Chris, at what level of value would you keep something around the house before you think about putting it in a secure location.

    Depends... some people are more cautious than others, I prefer to take extra steps whenever possible. I'm not talking tinfoil hat stuff, but 2 factor auth, encryption, etc.
