Kaspa coins can now be stored effortlessly and securely on various platforms such as Desktop, Web, Hardware, Android, and iOS.

Put your money where your custody is.

A non-custodial wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet where users maintain complete control over their private keys. This means that the user is solely responsible for keeping their private keys safe and managing access to their funds. Users do not need to rely on a third party to hold and manage their private keys, such as an exchange or online wallet provider. This type of wallet is often considered more secure than non-custodial wallets because users control their funds and do not need to trust a third party with their private keys.
