Is the core wallet implemented on the Dash blockchain or is it simply stored on my computer? How safe is this thing really?

no - nothing is stored nowhere except on your computer !
super safe - as long as u encrypt properly !
remember online and computer safety is only as good as us/you staying ahead of the bad hackers
so tech is always improving (same as the hackers are)

This brings me to the following question:

-If I have let's say the Amped Ally Router (with Anti-Virus installed).
-And an Anti-Virus on my PC.
-And a VPN.
-And a Password to get into my PC.
-And an encrypted Dash Core Wallet.

Assuming I will keep my laptop online, is it possible a hacker could get into my Dash Core Wallet through the same Dash Core Wallet and steal my funds even if my wallet is encrypted against withdrawals?

When I installed the wallet it said the TCP Port 9999 was open??

Of course, I will not leave my laptop online, I will keep it offline and just use the laptop strictly as a wallet. But assuming I did leave it online, is the above a possibility? When I saw the TCP port 9999 was open that made me question the wallet's security.

I wish I was more knowledgeable on these subjects, which sparks my interest and will indeed look to learn more about these technical matters.
