How to Setup a Secure EOS Account Using Permissions (Updated 3/12/2019)

  1. Owner Permission — Key generated in a Ledger hardware wallet.
  2. Active Permission — I highly recommend the desktop apps eos-voter by Greymass and SimplEOS by EOS Rio. If you want to use mobile, get EOS Lynx.
  3. Setup account alerts with EOS Authority’s tool.
  4. Stake all of your tokens 80% to CPU, 20% to NET.

Better than air-gapped cold storage?

Better than storing on an exchange?
