How to store altcoins offline??

Just started getting into altcoins using coinspot. One of the things they make you agree to and tick says "for the best security, ensure you store your coins offline in you own cold storage"
How do you do that? Seperate ap? i have no idea how to download my coins so only exist on my device or a usb

    Put it in your rfid-protected wallet

    depending on what coin you have, some of these coins have there own wallet you can use. otherwise ledger is the best bet. (careful of the fee's to and from exchange to ledger) if you hold less than 2k i'd just keep it on the exchange tbh.

    You can use an old air-gapped android smartphone.

        Not with no sim and no wi-fi AP details. Airplane mode if you want.

        This is why people lose money trading. They buy when they see green candles and sell on red.

    I use a Trezor* because it pairs with the "hot" software wallet I use, Exodus**

    Ledger Nano-X 200 bux. Put the 255 word passphrase on a physical bit of paper somewhere safe.
