1. Bitcoin

What’s better than a gift that keeps on giving? Bitcoin is one of the best gifts you can give not only to a seasoned HODLR but also to a crypto newcomer because it will not only possibly be worth much more in the future - but it will introduce them to the exciting world of cryptocurrencies. And who doesn’t want to say they own part of a Bitcoin? The best part about Bitcoin is that 1 Bitcoin is divisible by 100 million satoshis - you can think of satoshis as pennies and a Bitcoin as a dollar. So you can virtually gift any amount of Bitcoin - large and small.

How to Gift Bitcoin

The innovative team behind the Crypto Autopilot, OSOM.finance is on a mission to democratize the world of finance with simple and easy-to-use crypto management tools. They recently launched a feature that enables anyone to give any amount of the gift of Bitcoin.

You can purchase Bitcoin directly on their app with a credit or debit card or through a SEPA transfer from your bank account in a few simple steps:

  • Download the OSOM app
  • Pass the Identity Verification
  • Buy the BTC
  • Gift the BTC

Once received, the recipient can either cash out the Bitcoin if they choose to, simply hold the Bitcoin, or choose to deposit it into the OSOM Crypto Autopilot for a chance to increase their holdings more effectively than a simple hold strategy - the choice is theirs!

2. Hardware Wallet

A hardware wallet is a must for new and seasoned crypto fans alike. It is a tiny but high-security piece of hardware that allows you to store your funds offline in a safe and convenient way. It is safe because by using one, you can be confident that your private keys have never touched an insecure device. It is convenient because you can easily access your funds without needing to remember anything more than an 8-digit pin.

Always purchase hardware wallet devices directly from the manufacturer to avoid third-party tampering. The most popular and widely-used hardware wallet which also happens to be our favorite is the Trezor One.
