Hot vs Cold Storage

Hi all, I'm curious if I'm holding/using my bitcoin in a secure way.

First off, I know not t store them on CEX. I view CEX as an on/offramp, and a mechanism for purchasing coins, not as a viable wallet.

Currently, I store all of my bitcoin on a DeFi wallet, and I keep my keys on a physical piece of paper. I like this for two reasons: 1. It's very seamless to move coins from CEX to DeFi, and vice versa (if I need to sell for any reason) 2. I can engage some of my coins in DeFi protocols to earn more BTC (Yes, I understand the risks with DeFi protocols in general).

It seems like this sub is extremely pro cold wallet, which I get, but I'm curious if a DeFi wallet offers similar security to a cold wallet. I have my own keys. Thanks all!
