If you decide which Ethereum wallet is best for you, you will come down to a few things:

  • What type of storage do you need?
  • How often do you do the job
  • With which platform do you plan to use your wallet (desktop, web, mobile, etc.)

In the sections below, we will describe all the types of Ethereum wallets and how they meet the above criteria. When you finish this post, you should have a good idea of ​​which portfolio is right for you.

Ether Hardware Wallets

Ethereum Wallets

A functional Ethereum wallet is essential if you need secure storage for your Ether or ERC20 tokens. ETH holders generally want to buy a physical wallet if they plan to keep their ETH for a long time, especially if they have large sums of ETH.

Below are some of the best hardware portfolios on the market.

Ledger Nano S

The Ledger Nano S is the most famous hardware wallet for Ethereum and ERC20 token users.

It supports most currencies and is integrated with MyEtherWallet, making it easy to use the devices to send, store, and receive ether and ERC20 tokens. Ledger associated with MyEtherWallet is the most popular way to use Ledger for Ether.

TREZOR Model T

TREZOR Model T is another portfolio of materials, like books. It also supports the storage of ether and ERC20 tokens. It has the same incorporations as the Ledger Nano S. It can also be used with the MyEtherWallet to send, receive, and register ERC20 tokens.

It can also serve as a password organizer for all of your network accounts, which is an excellent bonus.

Ethereum Desktop Wallets

Office wallets are wallets that are located on your computer. Your currency keys are stored on your hard drive, and you manage them.

That being said, they are much less secure than a hardware wallet. You usually want to use a desktop wallet to do daily exchange transactions or act as a hardware wallet interface.

Below are some of the best office wallets we have tried.

Atomic Wallet

Atomic Wallet is a new multi-resource solution that allows you to easily manage Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, and more than 300 coins and tokens.

Some of the best features of a wallet are:

  1. Encrypted private keys that never leave the user’s device
  2. Possibility to buy cryptocurrencies with a bank card in 20-30 minutes.
  3. Decentralized integrated atomic exchange
  4. Instant exchange via Changelly and Shapeshift

If you are trading many different tokens, then this is the wallet for you.

Metamask

Metamask is a trendy Ethereum desktop wallet. It received funding from the Ethereum and Consensys foundations. It allows you to save ether or ERC20 tokens easily.

However, there are a few questions you should know about Metamask.

The first is that with Metamask, almost any website you browse can see that you have installed it and thus understand that you are a user and owner of cryptocurrencies.

While it doesn’t sound too bad, a simple privacy breach can make you a target for hacking or malware. See this article for more information.

Also, this applies to all wallets, but there are many fake versions of Metamask. Be sure to download it straight from the Metamask website.

Exodus

The Exodus wallet has become a trendy wallet in the world of cryptocurrencies. However, the main drawback is that its code is not open source. This means that developers around the world have not reviewed the wallet code, and you should trust the developers of Exodus more.

In any case, the Exodus wallet has several exciting features. It embraces a ton of coins, so you don’t need to create a different portfolio for each new coin you buy.

It also has a cool wallet feature that allows you to view cryptocurrencies in an easy to understand way.

Finally, it is integrated with ShapeShift, which allows you to exchange assets and currencies from your wallet directly.

Ethereum Web Wallet

Ethereum Wallets

A web wallet is a wallet that operates like an account on any other website. It allows you to log in to any device with a user name and password.

MyEtherWallet

MyEtherWallet is probably the most admired Ethereum web wallet.

However, web wallets are not at all secure and really shouldn’t be used at all. Just a week ago, there was a problem with MyEtherWallet, where your DNS was hijacked. The attackers managed to steal $13,000 in ether and ERC20 tokens.

Impersonation is also possible when you give a fake website your login credentials, which they use to log into a real MyEtherWallet to steal your funds.

If you decide to use MyEtherWallet, be sure to use it with a hardware wallet, not like a web wallet.

Ethereum Wallets for iOS

If you are an iPad or iPhone user and want to store coins for your daily purchases on your phone or tablet, these are our best options for you.

BRD

The BRD portfolio has existed for several years. Initially, it only supported Bitcoin, but recently added support for ether and many ERC20 tokens.

It is straightforward to configure, and you can start receiving ether in minutes. You can buy and sell ETH from the BRD wallet app on the shopping tab in the lower-left region of the home screen.

Another cool feature of BRD is that you don’t need to log in or log in to use your wallet (unless you decide to buy coins via the interface).

But since this is a mobile wallet, it should only be used for daily amounts of ether, and you should always save your wallet using the original 12 word BRD words generated for you when you first set up the wallet.

TrustWallet

TrustWallet is a portfolio of Ethereum and ERC20. Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, was recently acquired by TrustWallet.

Ethereum Wallets for Android

If your mobile devices are running Android operating systems and want to store parts for daily trading on your phone or tablet, see our options below.

TrustWallet

TrustWallet is a portfolio of Ethereum and ERC20. Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, was recently acquired by TrustWallet.

The BRD wallet is also available for Android devices. Initially, it only supported Bitcoin, but recently added support for ether.
