How do you handle your own safety?

I only know Bytemaster who controls millions of BTS - how is he handling his own safety?

I think it is now a good time to talk and improve our own safety.

What do i do?

I use 2 accounts on 2 different computers, but i am total aware, that one machine is compromised i will or could loose all BitShares stored on this wallet. So this is really a big concern, also seen on the voting absence.

How will we make it saver in the future?

AFAIK at moment

http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/ColdStorage

this is the only solution but honestly idk if it's up to date etc!
We should get out a hardware wallet like security asap

http://hyprkey.com/
http://bitcointrezor.com/

etc.

But for this we have to develop our own firmware! I'm in contact with BitcoinTrezor!
After Mid 2015 it wouldn't be a problem to get BTS branded Trezors ...

safety is critical for the success. If we can not provide a easy to use solution, who will you exposure to not much risk, we can not hope that BitShares will be used for Billions of Dollars.
