Looking for a wallet to store your Ether? Below are two we recommend: Jaxx, a software cryptocurrency wallet for desktop and mobile, and the Ledger Nano S, a hardware cryptocurrency wallet.
Let’s take a look at these wallets in more detail.
Jaxx is a free, easy-to-use desktop and mobile wallet for storing and exchanging many cryptocurrencies, including both Ether and bitcoin.
Jaxx is compatible with Android, iOS, Mac computers, Windows computers, and Linux, and is available for download from your app store or from their website.
Setting up a Jaxx wallet takes less than 5 minutes, and once created, you have full control over your ‘private keys.’ According to their website, Jaxx users are never locked-in to their service; their product is about giving you complete freedom and control. The Jaxx wallet also has Shapeshift which enables you to easily exchange between cryptocurrencies.
Create your Jaxx wallet now at jaxx.io or search ‘Jaxx’ in your app store.
If security is your number one concern, it could be worth investing in a hardware wallet. We recommend the Ledger Nano S, a compact, user-friendly, and secure hardware wallet with a 79.00 € (approximately $120 AUD) price tag.
The Ledger Nano S stores bitcoin, Ether, and other cryptocurrencies, and connects to any computer via a USB port. The wallet features a small OLED display and several function buttons that are used to verify transactions.
With the Ledger Nano S, sensitive information like private keys is never exposed. Private operations are isolated within your wallet using an innovative Secure Element locked by a PIN. As a result, transactions are never corrupted or tampered with.
Purchase a Ledger Nano S now at www.ledgerwallet.com.
Already have one and yet to set it up? We have a easy to follow video for getting you Ledger Nano S setup.
What is a wallet anyway? What’s the difference between a desktop wallet and a hardware wallet? How do I know which wallet is right for me?
