What Are Cryptocurrency Wallets

If you want to buy Bitcoin or any other digital currency, you must choose a wallet. A cryptocurrency wallet is a software program (which you can access from your phone or computer) that allows you to securely store your coins or tokens, and lets you send and receive digital currencies. When choosing the right wallet for you, it’s important to consider security, ease of use, features, supported cryptocurrencies, costs and the team behind the product.

Amber

We might be biased, but we’ve spent more than a year building the Amber product, perfecting its features to ensure we are the best service available for everyday Australians investing in digital currencies. Our easy-to-use mobile app takes the stress away from investing, letting your spare change do the work while you focus on what matters most… life! We designed our app specifically as an all-in-one solution to empower the everyday person to easily gain access to the ecosystem and benefit from the paradigm shift into open banking, digital currency’s and the possible investment opportunity’s that may lie within it.

Exodus

Founded in 2016, Exodus is a desktop digital currency wallet that gives users access to nearly a dozen cryptocurrencies. Exodus is a popular wallet because of its user-friendly platform and personalisation features (including a powerful charting tool). Because Exodus is a desktop wallet, it stores your digital assets directly on your computer and this means they are 100% in your control at all times. The cons? Because Exodus is a self-custody wallet, if you lose your password or access credentials, you’ll lose access to your funds for good. Exodus is also tech focused wallet, meaning it’s better suited to more experienced or tech-savvy crypto investors.

Jaxx Wallet

Jaxx Wallet aims to simplify cryptos with an easy-to-use platform that is designed to work and sync across your mobile and desktop devices. Jaxx supports over 70 different cryptocurrency assets including the most popular cryptos like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin and is free to download.

Edge

We’re huge fans of Edge. It’s a reputable, multi-currency, non-custodial software wallet with a proven track record in securing user funds, whilst maintaining privacy.

Ledger Nano S

The Ledger Nano S is one of the most popular cryptocurrency hardware wallets out there, that supports most of the big coins. While a bit more expensive than its main competitor, the TREZOR One, the Ledger Nano S gives its users high security for their coins, via an easy to use interface.

Abra

Abra is an all-in-one mobile platform helping people invest in and manage crypto and fiat currencies. The app lets you buy and sell over 28 cryptocurrencies (and 50 fiat currencies) directly through its wallet. It also provides money transfer services, letting you send funds and switch between fiat and crypto. Abra doesn’t charge you fees for exchanging currencies within the app, but does operate a spread meaning the rates for purchases are higher than elsewhere (users may be buying one currency at a price slightly above market rates and/or selling slightly below rates).
