The best thing
Bank account and crypto wallet in one
Custodial wallets are like banks. They are provided by a centralized entity who controls your assets and saves them for you. If you want to move funds out of your custodial wallet you need to request a withdrawal. Importantly, with a custodial wallet you can’t access decentralized applications (dApps) on the blockchain.
Non-custodial wallets allow you to keep complete ownership of your funds. Holding crypto assets in a non-custodial wallet is the equivalent of holding cash in the real world. Your funds are stored on the Blockchain and you have direct control over them. Most wallets allow you to hold, send & receive funds on multiple blockchains.
It depends. Some wallets are multichain meaning they support several blockchains within the same app, others are focused on one only.
Because many of the decentralized applications are web based, the most popular wallets are browser extensions like Metamask that can be connected to the site by simple button click. However, mobile wallets are rising in popularity due to their safety and new interoperability standards like WalletConnect.
Buying a hardware wallet is recommended for larger sums but it also makes using your wallet more cumbersome since there are more steps involved if you want to move funds. Many people recommend using a hardware wallet for your “cold wallet” with funds you don’t move around often and a “hot wallet” without a hardware wallet for your everyday funds you use in DeFi and elsewhere.
