Staking coins risk


#1

I think I have heard on a few podcasts that staking on your main computer can be dangerous but I have not heard why or ways to prevent it. Before a recent motherboard failure I was staking 3 coins when the old pc would allow it.

Is there an added risk to staking? For the coins I was staking, I did not need to open up any ports so I am unclear on what additional risk I was taking.

I’d imagine the biggest risk of staking would be your coins are on a PC connected to the internet at all times instead of a cold wallet. You could be hacked.
