Keystore

The Keystore is an encrypted Private key and can be very hard to transcribe, therefore, it can be stored on your own offline device, like a USB drive. Try not to store it online or on a server that uploads to the cloud. Make sure to store your password and Keystore separately because it is difficult to crack into the wallet with only the Keystore.
