Alternatively, you can also use a paper wallet. Cryptocurrency transactions involve a public and private key. The public key is like your bank account number, and the private key is a bit like your PIN. A paper wallet is a secure way of printing the key on a piece of paper (often using a QR code). The recipient can scan the code and move the crypto into a wallet of their choosing.
If you are buying for a crypto enthusiast, use a hardware wallet.
A physical hardware wallet could be a great gift in itself. These are small devices that are kept offline, so they’re less likely to get hacked.
Always remember to do your own research!
