Wallets and crypto exchanges have had many different vulnerabilities that have affected their credibility and ended up with users losing their funds. This is why there are many investors that do not trust the whole crypto space and prefer to remain on the sidelines until these services become more mature.
A few months ago, the cryptocurrency exchange Binance was affected by a hack in which they lost around 7,000 BTC.
