5 best crypto wallets you can try in 2022


A crypto wallet is an important tool for anyone interested in cryptocurrencies. The name suggests that it is meant only for storing cryptocurrencies but can also be used for buying selling, and trading. One important benefit of using crypto wallets is that there are non-custodial options. It means you are the sole custodian of currencies and other digital assets that you choose to buy.

There are two types of crypto wallets: hardware and software aka cold storage and hot storage. The major difference between the two is that cold wallets store assets offline and hot wallets store them online. The former ones are usually considered safer options. We will cover both types of crypto wallets in this article.


Coinbase Wallet is one of the well-known crypto wallets out there. It is specifically beneficial for beginners as it is fairly easy to use and navigate. It supports over 4,000 digital assets including hundreds of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, and Shiba Inu.

It is a self-custody wallet where you are in complete control of your assets. It generates a private key that gets stored locally on your device. You can choose to upload the private key to the cloud so that you do not lose your cryptocurrencies even if you lose access to the wallet.
