How to master your cryptocurrency wallet: Pro tips to handling thousands of tokens with ease

You’ll never buy a Lambo if you lose all your cryptocurrency to some sneaky hacker, which is why in 2019 it is more important than ever to ensure the wallet you choose is top of the line. The ways that we store crypto have changed drastically throughout the past decade, but for every new security measure there is also some new, and wrong, way to store it as well (if you are storing any significant amount on an exchange, please, for the love of the HODL gods, stop). Storing on paper used to be the most secure method, but times have changed and we can now have that same security without the extreme inconvenience of paper management. There are thousands of cryptocurrencies out there, and finding a wallet that can accommodate all of them in a secure, user-friendly way should be every crypto user’s goal. We’ll set you on the right path with this article, but as always, be sure to do your own research before trusting anyone on the Internet. Comparing the competition We’ll be covering five different wallets in this article, none of which are the most convenient and dangerous option of storing on an exchange (seriously, if you’re storing on an exchange you’re asking for trouble). These wallets will all be compared on five components: seed phrase options, history of hacks, user reviews, diverse cryptocurrency support, and how they handle fees. Our wallets today include MyEtherWallet (because it’s a household name), Exodus (a well-known alternative wallet), Jaxx (since it has over 1 million users), Freewallet (a prime example of why you shouldn’t trust someone on the Internet without doing your research), and Coin Wallet (which has over 20 million user-generated wallets). Without further ado, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. 1. Seeds The seed phrase, which is a list of words storing all the information needed to recover a wallet, traces its roots to the early days of Bitcoin. Although it’s absurdly secure from online hacks, it’s extremely vulnerable to human stupidity. House fires, in-person theft, and simply losing the piece of paper with your seed on it can make it null. When used correctly, it offers a way to recover a cryptocurrency wallet after computer/wallet failure, since the seed you generated can be put back into another copy of the wallet to access your funds. Of our five chosen wallets, all have the option to use Seed Phrases - if they didn’t they wouldn’t be on this list. But not all seeds are made equal. Coin Wallet and Exodus, for instance, encrypt their wallets with a high level of security and allow users to set a PIN number as well, while a wallet like Freewallet does neither of these things, because it’s a custodial service and you don’t have access to your private keys. 2. Hacks These come in all shapes and forms. MyEtherWallet’s chosen DNS servers were compromised in 2018 when thieves managed to resolve users to a phishing site, thus intercepting data between users and MyEtherWallet. Exodus has a bad history with malware and script hacks, and various user accounts claim they’ve lost funds when using this wallet. Jaxx reportedly lost around $400K in 2017 after hackers were able to connect to users’ computers and extract private keys easily from Jaxx’s software. Freewallet randomly moved almost 8 million in user funds to a cold storage account, which spurred a lot of whistleblowing about exit scams; the funds were still available to users, but after Mt. Gox’s incident years ago, do we really want to trust a company and their “cold storage” options? Coin Wallet, which has been operating for over four years, has never been hacked. It uses AES-256 encryption in conjunction with BIP 39 passphrase encryption, which has been enough to prevent any hacks as of yet. 3. Reviews It is easiest to use a third-party website here, so we’ll defer to cryptocompare.com for reviews. Source: cryptocompare.com/wallets Only two of these wallets have perfect scores, but users should be aware that Freewallet is a custodial service. This can lead to problems when participating in ICOs since the private keys aren’t yours, especially when dealing with a smart contract that returns coins or tokens to the sending address. Being able to export your private keys is extremely important. This is something offered by Coin Wallet, Jaxx, Exodus, and MyEtherWallet, but NOT by Freewallet. 4. Token Support Being able to have all your crypto in one place is super handy, especially if you’re participating in dozens of ICOs and investing in more than the top 10 currencies. Here is a breakdown of the currencies each wallet supports: Coin Wallet BTC, LTC, BCH, XRP, ETH, and all ERC20 and ERC223 tokens (20,000+) Jaxx BTC, ETH, DASH, ETC, BCH, REP, LTC, ZEC, RSK, DGE, ICN, GNT, GNO, DGD, BCAP, CVC, STX, POE, MCI, QTUM, CFI, ART, PAY, and 55+ more MyEtherWallet ETH (obviously), ERC20, ETC, Testnet ETH, UBQ, EXP, POA, TOMO, ELLA, ETSC, EGEM, CLO, GO, EOSC, AKA, ESN, PIRL, ETHO, ATH, ILT, WEB, and MUSICOIN Freewallet

Ledger vs. Trezor

As a way of enhancing additional security of cryptocurrencies, hardware wallets emerged. As the cryptocurrency sector expands, the demand for hardware wallets is also on the rise. When you opt for hardware wallets, you are adding an extra layer of security since hackers can compromise desktop and mobile wallets. Additionally, hardware wallet shields you from scams that might attempt to steal your private keys. Note that hardware wallets stores your private keys on the device. All hardware wallets usually come with a list of seed words that help you restore your assets in case of loss or damage. For safety purposes, the seed words should be kept somewhere safe to avoid unauthorized access. Over the years, Ledger and Trezor have emerged as the biggest producers of hardware wallets. Based on the security features, Ledger and Trezor have an excellent reputation in the market. It is worth pointing out that these two wallets do not necessarily store cryptocurrencies. Instead, they follow coin information on the blockchain while the wallet serves as the protection for all the private information. In this article, we look at how Ledger and Nano fare against each other. What is Ledger? Ledger is a cryptocurrency hardware wallet with roots in France. The wallet is in the shape of a USB and it was created by a team of experts with a background in embedded security. The developer’s main goal was to develop secure solutions for blockchain products. The Ledger wallet was released in 2014 and has undergone modification ever since. To date, more that one million units have been sold worldwide. What is Trezor? Trezor also released its first product in 2014. At that moment, it was the first Bitcoin hardware wallet. The Trezor wallet is a product created by a Czech-Republic-based company SatoshiLabs. Since joining the market, Trezor has also built a reputation for itself with unique security features in place. Notably, the original Trezor wallet has undergone improvements to meet market demands. Ledger Vs. Trezor We now look at how Ledger and Trezor fair against each other based on features. At the moment, Trezor has the Trezor one, the Trezor Model T while the for Ledger, we have the Ledger Nano S and the Ledger Nano X. Cryptocurrency Support This is the most vital feature to look at when comparing these two hardware wallets. The Ledger supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Ethereum, Ethereum Tokens, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Zcash, Ripple, Dash. Stratis, Komodo, Ark, Expanse, Ubiq, Vertcoin, Viacoin, Neo, Stealthcoin, Stellar, Hcash, Digibyte, Qtum, PivX, and PosW. On the other hand, Trezor supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, DASH, Zcash, Bitcoin Cash / Bcash, Bitcoin Gold, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, ERC-20 Tokens, Expanse, UBIQ, NEM, Namecoin, and Dogecoin. It worth noting that that Trezor does not offer full software support for all these cryptocurrencies. For instance, you have to use MyEtherWallet or a similar application to store Ethereum in and ERC-20 tokens in Trezor. Box Contents Upon purchasing your Ledger wallet, the box will include a USB Cable for connecting to your computer, a Key Chain and a Lanyard. Other features include Ledger, USB Cable, Key Chain, Lanyard, Instruction Card, and recovery card. The Trezor will be in a small square box protected with a safety seal. The seal means that the device has not been tampered with. Inside the box, you will find a USB cable, Trezor, Strap, USB Cable, Instruction Card, and x2 Recovery Seed Cards. Wallet Setup The Trezor and Ledger wallet works on Windows, Linux, and MacOS. They both need to be connected to a computer via a USB cable. Both wallets have the same setup procedures. For the two wallets, the setup process entails two main steps, setting a PIN code and writing down a backup recovery seed. The PIN protection is essential as it avoids unauthorized access, in the event the wallet is lost. For both wallets, if someone makes more than three incorrect PIN entry attempts, the device deletes all the data stored on it. Note that seed recovery phrase does not display on the screen, meaning that nobody can view it. Both wallets have two buttons that control most activities. For example, the buttons are used for navigating the menus. Security Both Trezor and Ledger have scored almost the same on security features. The outstanding feature is that the two wallets generate private keys offline on their screens. This means that hackers can never access the keys. Another security feature with the two is that both offer a recovery seed and ask you to set up a PIN to access the wallet interface. The recovery seed is vital when you want access to your coins while the PIN bars anyone else from accessing your wallet. We also the Passphrase feature for both wallets. This is an additional layer of security that entails 25 words of your recovery seed. With both wallets, you have an option of setting up the passphrase. After you set up the PIN always remember that
