Simply put, Ripple(XRP) is supported by a nice range of wallets that are available on smartphones, desktops and which cover a nice range of features.
I am going to provide you with a few wallets that are suitable for any preferences.
Which crypto wallet is the best?
The first wallet of choice is a hardware wallet from Ledger. They offer a wide range of sleek hardware wallets, and the users seem to be happy with them.
Full disclosure, I haven’t used any of their hardware wallets, but I can vouch that it’s one of the best ways to store your crypto, and it even has a mobile application that supports the wallet. They support a wide range of cryptocurrencies while they also offer a DEX(decentralized exchange), which is pretty nice to have. The wallet can be used with other DEXs that support it as well.
If your Ledger device is lost, the funds can be recovered, as long as you have the recovery phrase written and stored in a safe place. The only downside of this wallet is that it can be a bit expensive.
The second wallet of choice for the mobile environment is called Trust Wallet. The wallet is very secure, supports a wide range of cryptocurrencies, and it has a DEX feature built in. I’d like to mention that Coinbase has a wallet that I like more than Trust Wallet which works hand in hand with Coinbase’s exchange, however, it does not offer such a wide range of supported cryptocurrencies nor a DEX as Trust Wallet does.
What I like the most about Coinbase’s wallet is that it saves a backup on user’s iCloud account, however, I am not sure if that feature applies to Android users since I haven’t tested it on an Android device.
I can say that I have tested both wallets and I am really happy with both of them.
My last pick is a desktop-exclusive wallet. Based on my research, Atomic wallet is a non-custodial software wallet with a sleek UI. It looks like the wallet is very secure and also offers an exchange engine built in, which is powered by Changelly. The wallet works on Windows, MacOS, Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora; desktop users are going to be very happy with it.
All the wallets mentioned above require users to backup and safely store their recovery phrases or private keys. Besides Ledger, all the wallets are completely free.
In conclusion, if you want to spend some money in order to have more features, a Ledger Nano S wallet is the best way to go, however, if you want a nice mobile wallet for XRP, I’d go with Coinbase’s wallet or Trust Wallet. In case you are only using a desktop environment, the Atomic wallet looks like a perfect choice.
