Just So I’m Clear..... : Bitcoin
Sooooo still kinda new to this bitcoin thing. First I purchased some BTC through the robin hood app without doing research then after a while of doing some more research I realize I dont actually get BTC from there its basically forex. So In attempts to join the bitcoin community i created a wallet on my phone with the block chain app. I wrote down my phrase and got my wallet address. To even try it out I uploaded some money and tried accessing the wallet from other devices and it works(ipad, androiod tablet, etc) however so cool I think I got the hang of things pretty awesome, buuuuttttt now im coming across something Im reading in different sections where people say “not your wallet, not your coin” and I get that but I also hear about using a “cold/hard wallet” to store your bitcoin. (eletrum or some other thing i havent heard of)
So my question is
am I in possession of a “cold or hard” wallet with what I have on that block chain app? Is that app just another thing similar to coinbase or crypto.com where that isnt actually my wallet either
How do I get a hold of a cold wallet for me to start storing bitcoin if it isnt one or is it ok to just stick with the wallet I have and keep loading and holding?
Forgive the newbie questions I just want to make sure I do this right when joining hodl community
