A Hot Wallet is coming to the normal, physical cash at the next, the Coins in the Wallet are always flexible and negotiable.
A Cold Wallet has no permanent connection to the Internet. The consequence is that the Coins can not be traded quickly and simply, since first contact with the Internet must be built.
The development of Cold Wallets
