I think we trend towards: hardware wallets are good for spending security; for cold storage it's equivalent to any other physical representation, i.e. if it's stolen the thief gets the money.
(Even encrypted paper wallets are like that, because if the encryption is not trivial to crack, you've just moved the wallet back one level to the password).
@waxwing One could assume that their wallet will be cracked eventually if someone has it physically. There may still be vulnerabilities that we don't know of.

@keymonkey @nvk Good idea to hide your Horcruxes in multiple locations too. https://medium.com/@summerstarlight321/counter-wrench-attacks-83c75bfbb3de
@verretor thanks, that's a good idea, maybe when im really comfy with that... 12 english words is just so easy to Not mess up 😉
@verretor ya, it may be better, but i think, still not good, as you'd need to really be thinking clearly AND more importantly - as a strategy, it again would piss off attackers, which is Not what u want to do in that situation 😉
