Wallet of the Week: AlphaWallet
Taking your first steps into web3 can be overwhelming, with a plethora of wallet choices at your fingertips. In our “Wallet of the Week” series, we put the spotlight on one wallet and share why we think they’re worth checking out.
Three reasons why we’re big on AlphaWallet
AlphaWallet is a self-custodial mobile wallet that supports the currencies of all EVM-compatible chains. It more than lives up to its name by offering an impressive list of features.
- Designed to provide “hardware-level” security: AlphaWallet leverages the Secure Enclave, an isolated, air-gapped piece of hardware in your mobile phone, to store private key information and boost security. Read more about it here.
- Sign-in with your web3 identity: AlphaWallet resolves for ENS domains, meaning you can see your .eth address as part of your wallet details. They are also in the process of adding support for other domain name providers, such as Unstoppable Domains.
- Easily interact with tokens — even gaming ones: Through the intuitive interface, you can easily group and interact with different kinds of tokens across chains. You can even manage your in-game crypto assets and collectibles from your wallet and use the in-app browser to connect and interact with your favorite games, as well as other apps.
AlphaWallet is now working on rolling out a whole host of new features, including native cross-chain swaps and dual-factor authentication.
Developers, take note!
As an open-source wallet, AlphaWallet makes its code freely available to both beginner and experienced developers to use, upgrade, and redesign. The AlphaWallet team invites developers from all backgrounds to head on over to the AlphaWallet GitHub page and suggest changes, request features, and contribute to the ecosystem. You can also check out its open-source framework TokenScript, which is a tokenization standard designed to shape the optimal token-centric experience by providing composability, utility, and interoperability.
