About Cryptocurrency Wallets

What is a cryptocurrency wallet?

Cryptocurrency wallets provide a secure method to store, send, and receive digital assets such as Bitcoin and altcoins. Different wallet types, including desktop, mobile, paper, and hardware, are available and have unique features, convenience, security, and cost. Selecting the best wallet for one’s needs is critical for securely managing your coins and other assets, like NFTs.

How can I find the best wallet for me?

The type of crypto wallet you should choose depends on your needs, what you plan to use it for, and your risk appetite. Generally, the most secure type of wallet is a hardware wallet (known as a cold wallet), but these usually aren’t free, and you don’t always have it with you.  

You can also choose a software wallet, sometimes called a hot wallet, to store your crypto assets. There are many available on many operating systems. Do you only use your phone? That’s no problem because both Android and iOS are supported by most wallets. There are also plenty of options for PC, Mac and Linux users. The private key aspect is very important, though. It is always best to hold your private key, but if you often lose your things, choosing a wallet that keeps it for you may be better.

All choices have pros and cons with regard to the level of security and convenience. The choice is really up to you, but always be careful when choosing. You can usually find plenty of reviews and tutorials on Google and YouTube.   It is essential to do your own research and choose the one that best suits your needs.

How many crypto wallets are there?

It is hard to give an exact answer to this question since it is constantly changing. Some wallets go offline and new ones are created. Most cryptocurrencies also have their own proprietary wallet that usually only supports that specific blockchain. At Blockspot.io, we only list wallets that support multiple blockchains and/or tokens. We have a couple hundred of those listed to choose from.

What do the filter options in the wallet list mean?

In our wallet list, you can filter on the following features:

Type:

Choose from a hardware wallet or software wallet.

A hardware wallet is a physical device (or paper) designed to securely store digital assets’ private keys. This is less user-friendly, but it is the safest way to store them. 

A software wallet can come in many forms. It could be an app for your mobile phone on iOs or Android, or your computer with Windows, macOS, or Linux as an operating system. We also regard online services and Chrome extensions as software wallets.

Country:

Select the country where the wallet is based. We try our best to keep this data up-to-date. If you choose worldwide (decentralized), it usually is an open-source wallet. Some wallets do not have the country disclosed, which is stated as  “Country not disclosed”.

User owns private keys:

All crypto assets are stored on a blockchain, which you can see through blockchain explorers using the public key. The private key is needed to access the funds and to be able to move them. It can come in a long string of letters and numbers or as a combination of words, called a mnemonic seed phrase, which is usually 12 or 24 words. The wallet you choose will determine whether you have access to the private key or not. If you do have access, keep it safe and do not share it with anybody.

Wallets that do not allow you to export the private key or mnemonic seed can be considered a custodian wallet. In this case, a third party has full access to your funds stored in the wallet. That is a risk when the wallet goes offline, and you no longer have access to your funds. Always be very diligent when choosing the right wallet for you.

Fiat gateway: 

The features of a fiat gateway include the possibility of selling or buying coins inside the wallet using fiat money. That can be done via a bank transfer or a payment processor, depending on how the wallet has implemented this feature.

Coin converter:

The coin converter is a feature where you can swap one coin for another coin within the wallet. There are centralized and decentralized solutions for this, which can be different for each wallet that has implemented this feature.

Payment card:

The payment card is a feature that has become popular in recent years to provide users with a way to spend their coins using a debit or (pre-paid) credit card.
