Where is my cryptocurrency stored?

The cryptonow voucher card has a double feature. On one hand, the activation code is used to activate the voucher card and exchange the CHF value into the respective cryptocurrency. On the other hand, a public key and a private key are printed on the back of the card. These are functioning as a secure “cold storage” blockchain wallet, which should be kept in a safe place at all times (e.g. safety box). So it’s important that you keep your card in a safe place after activation.
