There are different EOS wallets with several advantages. If you’re not sure which one to choose, I’ll make it easier for you by listing 5 EOS wallets and including their features.
Freewallet is a pretty nifty EOS wallet and is highly recommended for beginners.
First of all, creating an EOS wallet requires EOS payment for most of the wallets available. Freewallet doesn’t require an EOS payment to create a great wallet.
Another good thing for beginners is that Freewallet stores the private keys. In other words, users need to log in with usernames and passwords. This is good because you don’t have to keep your private keys in a safe place (with the possibility of losing them, and with it your wallet). This could also be a disadvantage for some as they prefer to store their own private keys.
This is a mobile wallet that works on both Android and IOS devices. Users can also lock their account if their device is stolen or lost. The wallet also includes a web version that can be very convenient.
Freewallet also has a built-in exchange function. In terms of security, the wallet comes with an email confirmation for each transaction, as well as the daily and weekly withdrawal limit.
2. GreyMass / EOS Voter Wallet
GreyMass is a popular EOS wallet that has voting and selection options. Unfortunately, it is not available on mobile devices.
This wallet also allows users to purchase RAM and CPU and keep track of a transaction by selecting a specific one.
Users can choose to either save their private keys locally or enter the details every time.
It should be noted that GreyMass is not easy to use for beginners.
InfinitoWallet is another mobile wallet with features that some people may find useful. The private keys are stored in the wallet on the device.
InfinitoWallet has a feature that prevents users from sending money to the wrong place and a feature that shows whether an address has been used for fraudulent activity.
In terms of security, the wallet offers multiple levels of authentication such as password, fingerprint and face ID.
SimpleEOS is an open source desktop wallet that updates quickly and over time. The wallet stores private keys on-site, has a nice user interface, and is pretty easy to use.
Users can receive drops of air with this wallet (not many wallets allow this). SimpleEOS enables tuning, staking and the use of dApps.
Scatter is considered to be one of the most secure desktop EOS wallets out there. It was started as a browser extension and expanded to a desktop application.
If you’re interested in smart contracts, Scatter lets you choose between EOS, Marriageum and TRON.
Scatter offers an exchange function and stores the private keys locally. The wallet can be pretty confusing at first.
All of the mobile wallets I mentioned can also support other cryptocurrencies.
