It’s encouraging to see this topic reopened. I own MAID coins and have been wondering what to do with them. They are sitting on Poloniex at the moment(!) Given that the SAFE coin is not expected for some time, and considering the evolving regulation of the market as well as high transaction fees for MAID that I read about in this topic, I wanted to ask other contributors what my best option was to store the coins for the moment?
I am not technical, but I understand that I can open an OMNI wallet for offline/cold storage? Would this be the best option, despite the fees today and in the future to transfer back to an exchange? Or, given that I’ve just read about Bitker, would it be prudent to transfer my coins from Poloniex to that exchange? I’ve not been as proactive as I needed to be in storing coins - I bought some coins as a small investment to support the project and I intend to hold them medium-term - but realize that I need to get up to speed on storing them securely.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, with an understanding of costs, and how to get a cold wallet if that’s the best option for now. thank you. If this is the wrong topic to ask the question, please direct me to a more appropriate one. Thank you.
(As a side note, I did also hold the STORJ counterparty coins. I remember selling them for BTC on Poloniex when STORJ launched their new ERC20 STORJ coin. I then purchased the new coin from BTC, thus avoiding the need to send to a burning address etc, which I remember wasn’t problem-free for all participants. There was abritrage too because I ended up with slightly more STORJ coins than original SJCX. If MAID was to take the ERC20 route, I’d exchange in the same way, wouldn’t mind paying two transaction fees, and I’d be able to store them on the Lykke exchange, which seems to me to be much more secure than Poloniex…?)
