Hardware wallet
This type of wallets are really off line type of wallets that when you want access your asset you will need to connect them through the USB port because the flash drives

Software wallet
It is obviously a online type of wallet which you can easily get on your phone or PC while in the phone you need to download it from playstore but in the PC it can be downloaded or it can be your browser extension but the fact is your private key need to be stored safely.

Which one is having a better security advantage?

I think it is the Hardware wallet because it is going to be had to hack something that is not online unless you steal the hardware so it security is better than software wallets.

2). What are the important points to consider when you deal with an Exchange(centralized) Wallet & Decentralized wallet.*

The important point I consider is Time I am holding my asset if I go for centralized wallet I am holding for short term because I can trade in it as soon as the asset price goes up in value but in Decentralized wallet it is for long term because there is no trading of any sort in it.

How do you secure/restore both types?

Centralize wallet
I am going to be sharing how I am going to secure and restore the wallet firstly we are going to be looking secure.

Secure
To secure your wallet ID you need to make sure no body get it because the person can easily access your funds but if the person doesn't have access to your phone number or email they can't transfer anything according to Binance I don't know about others.

Restore
The process of restoring your wallet is by changing your password or contacting customer care.

Decentralized wallet

I am going to be sharing how I am going to secure and restore the wallet firstly we are going to be looking secure.

Secure
To secure your wallet you need to store your keys safe so as not to loose your money because in this wallet they don't ask for email and phone number confirmation.

Restore
The process is by inserting your private key, mnemonic key or keystore file and it will be restored once.

Web 3.0
To know what it means visit here I am just going to give you examples.

Give an example of a Web 3.0 wallet and what are the distinct uses of a web 3.0 wallet? Have you ever used any Web 3.0 crypto Wallet? Examples?

Thank you for attending the lecture in Steemit-Crypto-Academy & doing the homework task-3

How do you secure/restore both types?

In the case of a Centralised wallet, you need to make sure that you still control the registered Email Account, Registered Mobile Number, and back up the 2FA code.

In the case of a decentralized wallet, make sure that you have backed up the Private Key/Mnemonic Key/Keystore File(Better write them down on a paper/notebook and keep them offline).

Give an example of a Web 3.0 wallet and what are the distinct uses of a web 3.0 wallet? Have you ever used any Web 3.0 crypto Wallet? Examples?

A web 3.0 wallet gives direct access to the various dApps such as exchange, lending, trading, game, collectibles, etc. Further, you can also interact with a dApp directly without having to leave your wallet(powered by Smartcontract).

TronLink wallet, Metamask, etc are the best examples of web 3.0 wallets.

Thank you.
