For users creating their wallet for the first time on their device, Skycoin has implemented a hardware encryption mechanism for wallet seeds, ensuring they never leave the device unless backed up or exported by the user. Users will also be able to select the node they wish to operate through for added security and control, creating a security-conscious ecosystem.
