What is a Digital Wallet?

A digital wallet is an application that lets you interact with a blockchain using a unique address.

Wallets are user-friendly interfaces for using a blockchain which would otherwise be hard to do. Think about a digital wallet like a digital account.

Don't reveal sensitive details about your wallet to anyone. Like your password or recovery phrase.

Your wallet lets you share your public address easily.

A public address is like a bank account number that anyone can see, use to verify your assets or check your history.

Not only is a wallet address an account, but it's also a username that can get used to identify an entity.

If anyone other than you accesses your wallet, they can take advantage of it. In the same way, they can abuse other digital accounts across the internet.

For these reasons, you must be cautious and understand a digital wallet.

What Wallet Should I choose?

The wallet you use will depend on the communities you are part of!

Connecting Additional Networks or Wallets to Your Galxe ID

A wallet is easy to access from your web browser when it's an extension, this allows you to link additional addresses, other networks or different wallets to your Galxe ID.

With a wallet, you can hold, trade, and spend ETH/BNB, NFTs, and other digital assets.

ℹ️ Note: If addresses on a blockchain start with 0x, it's an 'EVM Chain' and compatible with wallets like Metamask.
