The cryptocurrency market is growing and developing at a frantic pace. For this, a lot of developers are working, who, in particular, are working on creating wallets for storing cryptocurrencies
For example, a full wallet for ethereum with a clear interface appeared only in 2016. Before that, only Geth could be used, which is a command line (console) and works only through entering code. Not surprisingly, only advanced users could work with it.
Gradually, more and more new wallets began to appear, and today we already have a good choice for every taste and every need. In this article we will look at what types of wallets are available and we will study each of them separately
Types of cryptocurrency wallets
First you need to figure out for what purposes and device types we need a wallet. There are 5 types of wallets:
- Online wallets
- Desktop wallets
- Mobile wallets
- Hardware wallets
- Paper wallets
Often, developers release wallets for the most popular platforms and operating systems: mobile - for Android and iOS, desktop - for Windows, MacOS and Linux. The online wallet will store your cryptocurrency in the cloud, and the hardware wallet will be stored on a special physical device. Paper wallets store cryptocurrency “in the old manner” - in printed form.
