If you are a crypto user, you must be familiar with wallets. Wallets allow the users to store assets and manage funds along with interacting with the underlying blockchain network. Wallets are non-custodial in nature which means Your Key, Your Ownership. With wallets, users have complete control over their private keys. They can recover their assets again if they have safely stored their wallet’s private keys.  

Keeping funds in any centralized exchange is risky as they are prone to hacks. A few examples include the first and the most famous attack on Mt. Gox in 2011 or the recent KuCoin exchange hack in 2020. The Crypto industry has witnessed several such incidents. Due to this issue, users are reluctant to store their hard-earned assets in CEX’s.

Wallets (software/hardware) on the other hand provide the utmost security as they let the user hold his keys. And due to this feature, it has become popular among crypto users.

 What Is A Wallet?

Wallets are applications that allow users to interact with the network and store funds. Users can easily download it on their mobile phone (iOS, Android), desktop, or add it to their browser extension. The entire installation and setup process is pretty simple.

Talking about browser extensions, they are plugins that can be easily installed for browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Edge, etc.

Important: Before installing any browser extension, check for its authenticity. You can do it by looking at the number of downloads.

  1. Dear Ruma,
    I am not a digital native (66y) but try to get my head around Crypto and NFT.
    The main problem is the opacity of it all.
    I setup COINBASE and Coinbase wallet, bought Crypto.
    I setup Metamask to buy NFT from HENI.com.
    I bought TREZOR-T.
    Problem 1 : What I see on Metamask Extension is not what I see on my Metamask Mobile.
    Problem 2 : After sending NFT to TREZOR-T : unvisible in TREZOR!
    Problem 3 : NFT in Metamask: cannot SEND (grayed out).
    etc …
    And that is after 3 weeks of stress, not to ‘lose’ the NFT.
    It make me feel quite unconfortable.
    Even with Coinbase, Metamask, HENI NFT site and Trezor being ‘best of class’.
    Or maybe I am to ‘old’ …
    Francis, From Gent, BELGIUM
