The Top Cosmos Wallets to Safely Store and Stake your Atoms
We have curated a list of the current top wallets to store and delegate your Cosmos Atoms from. Before diving into the options, I would like to remark that the safest way to store larger amounts of Atoms is on a hardware wallet. There are multiple wallets and tools that allow you to send, delegate, and participate in governance using a Ledger device. But let’s start with our list:
Lunie is the official wallet that was first developed by part of the Cosmos team (then called Voyager). The Lunie team has now spun off as a separate company. This web wallet allows you to safely perform every operation from sending to participating in governance through your Ledger device without having to download additional software. Find it at: https://lunie.io/
Evaluation + Security audit + Web wallet, no extra software required - Only useable with Ledger devices (for now)
The popular multi-asset mobile wallet with support for ETH, BTC, EOS recently added a Cosmos wallet. imToken supports a lot of functions like exchanging tokens, using DApps and now also storing and staking your Cosmos Atoms!
+ Multiple Assets (BTC, EOS, as well as Ethereum and Cosmos assets) + Many functionalities (token exchange inside the wallet, DApp support,…) + Available on both iOS and Android + Security audit - Not feature complete (yet)
This slick mobile wallet available for Android is developed by the Korean team at Cosmostation, who also run their own validator and block explorer.
The wallet is available on both Apple App Store and Google Play.
+ Great design and UX + Amount of information and features + Available on both iOS and Android - No security audit - Only Cosmos
Another mobile wallet from the Chinese team at WeTez, who are already experienced in staking on Tezos. They also operate a validator on the Cosmos network and educate the Chinese community around the staking ecosystem.
+ Support for Cosmos, IRISnet and Tezos + Available on both iOS and Android - No security audit - No governance features and little information in the interface
Other Ledger Tools
There are a variety of tools build by validators to allow for easy staking and governance participation using a Ledger device. These include delegating through the Hubble and Stargazer block explorer and the delegation tool from our colleagues at Staking Facilities, as well as our own tool. The Chorus One tool additionally allows delegators to participate in governance themselves.
+ Easy to use - Limited features and only Ledger devices supported
There are a variety of wallet options available already today. We recommend storing large Atom amounts on a Ledger device. To do so you will need to have the Cosmos application installed on your Ledger device using Ledger Live. There are also some other wallets in development (e.g. IOV and Lunagram). We are looking forward to trying these out and seeing the wallets and tools mentioned in this article evolve.
