“Not your keys, not your bitcoin” (Andreas M. Antonopoulos).
Your private cryptographic key is like your password which allows you to buy, receive and manage your bitcoin and other crypto. If you leave this with an exchange or other service it could get stolen, lost, confiscated, etc. CoinCompass not only helps you buy but also transfer and manage your coins securely in your own fully-controlled cold storage.
