What is a crypto wallet
A cryptocurrency wallet is a secure digital wallet used to store, send, and receive digital currency like Bitcoin. Most coins have an official wallet or a few officially recommended third-party wallets. In order to use any cryptocurrency, you will need to use a cryptocurrency wallet.
Cryptocurrency itself is not actually “stored” in a wallet. Instead, a private key (secure digital code known only to you and your wallet) is stored that shows ownership of a public key (a public digital code connected to a certain amount of currency). So your wallet stores your private and public keys, allows you to send and receive coins, and also acts as a personal ledger of transactions.
There are a lot of different providers of wallets and there are a lot of good ones and bad ones. Here I inform you on what are the wallets I like to use, for which coin.
There are a lot of more wallets to get but these are cover the most used coins. will be updated every now and then.
The best wallet at the moment is a hardware wallet like the ledger nano. Only for fauceteers it may not be worth it to buy one, but if your serious about crypto and sure you will be putting some money in it. Its the way to go. They can store almost all crypto’s more info here on their website. Nano ledger.

Coinbase browser and mobile wallet
Coinbase is an online wallet also combine with an exchange. You do not get the rpivate keys to the wallet so you dont have full control, but this is the easyest site to get fiat into crypto and vice versa. Currently they support Btc, Eth, Ltc, Zcash, 0x, BAT, EOS, Bcash, Dai and XLM.
Coinimi is a mobile multicoin wallet, it supports over 1500 coins. I use this for all the coins exodus does not support, for some what more unknown coins. Although I prefer exodus as I think it is safer since it is on the desktop. And you get control of your private keys, which is a big plus+. Here is a list of all the supported cryptocurrencies. Get Coinimi wallet.
