A wallet is a software or hardware device that lets users store, control, and communicate with their digital assets in the context of cryptocurrencies. Users can access and manage their cryptocurrency holdings, execute transactions, and keep track of balances thanks to the securely stored private keys.

The several types of cryptocurrency wallets include software wallets (available online, on mobile devices, and on desktop computers), hardware wallets (physical devices), and paper wallets (available offline and printed).
