Here are the different types of wallets:
- Smartphone wallets:
Available on the Google Play download platforms for android or the App Store for iOS. They allow you to manage your daily transactions, for example the DIGY wallet (gold cadena on purple background).
DIGY allows you to create a wallet for Bitcoin, Litcoin and Ethereum
- Physical wallets:
These are "hardware wallets" on a physical medium specially designed for the secure storage of your crypto-assets, for example: Ledger Nano S, Ledger Blue ....
It is simply a sheet of paper where the public and private keys are printed. The only danger is the possible deterioration of the support linked to external elements (fire, rain, tearing...) or the hypothetical loss of the paper.
To avoid losing this unique access to your crypto-assets, users are advised to make copies and keep them in a secure place, preferably away from malicious eyes (safe).
This wallet can continue to be credited: simply send coins to its public address.
The public key allows you to receive crypto-assets by communicating it to anyone who wishes to transfer to you.
The private key allows you to access your crypto-assets. Without them, it will result in a total loss of your funds! Never give it to anyone and keep it in a safe place.
