Ethereum wallets

The key to your digital future

Wallets give access to your funds and Ethereum applications. Only you should have access to your wallet.

What's an Ethereum wallet?

Ethereum wallets are applications that let you interact with your Ethereum account. Think of it like an internet banking app – without the bank. Your wallet lets you read your balance, send transactions and connect to applications.

You need a wallet to send funds and manage your ETH. More on ETH

Your wallet is only a tool for managing your Ethereum account. That means you can swap wallet providers at any time. Many wallets also let you manage several Ethereum accounts from one application.

That's because wallets don't have custody of your funds, you do. They're just a tool for managing what's really yours.

💵

An app for managing your funds

Your wallet shows your balances, transaction history and gives you a way to send/receive funds. Some wallets may offer more.

Your Ethereum account

Your wallet is your window into your Ethereum account – your balance, transaction history and more. But you can swap wallet providers at any time.

Your login for Ethereum apps

Your wallet lets you connect to any decentralized application using your Ethereum account. It's like a login you can use across many dapps.

Wallets, accounts, and addresses

It's worth understanding the differences between some key terms.

  • An Ethereum account is an entity that can send transactions and has a balance.

  • An Ethereum account has an Ethereum address, like an inbox has an email address. You can use this to send funds to an account.

  • A wallet is a product that lets you manage your Ethereum account. It allows you to view your account balance, send transactions, and more.

Most wallet products will let you generate an Ethereum account. So you don't need one before you download a wallet.

Types of wallets

There are a few ways to interface and interact with your account:

💿

Physical hardware wallets are devices that let you keep your crypto offline – very secure

📱

Mobile applications that make your funds accessible from anywhere

🌐

Browser wallets are web applications that let you interact with your account directly in the browser

🌐

Browser extension wallets are extensions you download that let you interact with your account and applications through the browser

🖥️

Desktop applications if you prefer to manage your funds via macOS, Windows or Linux

How to stay safe

Wallets require a bit of a different mindset when it comes to safety. Financial freedom and the ability to access and use funds anywhere comes with a bit of responsibility – there’s no customer support in crypto.
✅

Take responsibility for your own funds

Centralized exchanges will link your wallet to a username and password that you can recover in a traditional way. Just remember you’re trusting that exchange with custody over your funds. If that company is attacked or folds, your funds are at risk.

✅

Write down your seed phrase

Wallets will often give you a seed phrase that you must write down somewhere safe. This is the only way you’ll be able to recover your wallet.

Here's an example:

Don’t store it on a computer. Write it down and keep it safe.

✅

Bookmark your wallet

If you use a web wallet, bookmark the site to protect yourself against phishing scams.

✅

Triple check everything

Remember transactions can’t be reversed and wallets can’t be easily recovered so take precautions and always be careful.
