Trading cryptocurrency is one of the ways people are diversifying their portfolio. To get started, certain things cannot be compromised, and one of them is a digital wallet.

Cryptocurrency Wallets

To clearly understand what a cryptocurrency wallet is, it is best viewed as a bank, while the wallet address can be likened to the bank account which can be used to store, receive and send cryptocurrency to other addresses linked to their respective wallet or used for shopping purposes. Whatever need cryptocurrency serves, for trading or asset ownership, a wallet account is a necessity.

Top 5 Crypto Wallets

1. Coinpayments

This digital asset wallet is web-based and has become a highly sought wallet by crypto enthusiasts. It became popular when it approved the storage of over 1200 cryptocurrencies on its online wallet account.

2. Exodus
