i am new to bitcoin and am just starting so apologies if this question is nota good one.... i have bought some coins and they are now stored in my ELECTRUM wallet.. the wallet seed is stored on a USB drive (and encrypted with Veracrypt) which i carry with me.
ELECTRUM pass (to make transactions) is computer generated and stored in my Keepass Manager.. The manager is in the cloud, the key file is also on the USB drive.
With this combination i believe my coins are secured. In case my computer crashes i have my wallet seed with me which means i can restore my wallet from any machine whenever i want, in case i lose the USB, the content is protected and not accessible and i have a backup USB just in case...
Now - what is then the benefit of a hardware wallet? are there more benefits to it than my solution? have i missed something?
