Though cryptocurrency wallets all share a common purpose, they can differ greatly in how they function, the security features they include, and the blockchain networks they are compatible with. While the new report from Coinmarketology does not suggest that one type is generally superior, it does explain that each trading style is best suited to a particular type of wallet.
Coinmarketology researchers cover two distinct wallet types in the new report and use a common brand as an example for each style. The report covers both “self-custody wallets,” and “hot wallets,” using Coinbase and MetaMask to explain the differences.
The two wallet types are designed for two different styles of trading, with the Coinbase wallet having been built focused on privacy, and security, making it a commonly recommended device for new traders. With the Coinbase wallet, private keys are stored and controlled by the user, so that their cryptocurrency never leaves their custody.
The MetaMask wallet uses a different approach and is known as a “hot wallet” because it stores users’ private keys online. While this approach does include more risk of cyber threats, it is often used to provide fast access to the wallet through a browser, to access decentralized finance apps, or in combination with a hardware wallet.
The full report provides an in-depth analysis of the full feature list for each wallet type, and several examples to showcase how each type is best suited to a particular use. It also includes an overview of how the wallets are viewed by the public, based on user reviews, recommendations, and total download counts.
“We understand how overwhelming it can be to navigate the world of cryptocurrency, especially when it comes to choosing the right wallet,” said a spokesperson for Coinmarketology. “Our goal is to provide individuals with the information they need to make an informed decision and feel confident in their choice.”
