I have an online bitcoin wallet. I sometimes read news about some online bitcoins wallet websites getting hacked. For sure when this happens, all the bitcoins of all of the users are stolen. Articles like this corroborate this.
I guess there is no possibility of reclamation after that kind of incident on an online bitcoin wallet website. I guess they have all pretty controlled on their disclaimers.
So my questions are:
- If a bitcoin is finally a hash that can be in a file that can be stored offline anywhere (on my local PC or on an external HDD), what advantages do I have for using an online wallet? Why to "expose" it?
- Is there an online bitcoin wallet never hacked yet? Which one?
