Beginner Guide: How to Create a Crypto Wallet?
June 1, 2023
What is a Crypto Wallet?
A crypto wallet is a place where you can safely store your digital assets in one place. There are many kinds of crypto wallets, you can check out out previous post to learn more about specific types of crypto wallets. However, in today's blog, we will refresh your memory and show you how to create a crypto wallet for yourself.
Types of Crypto Wallets?
Before creating a wallet you should always do your research, or DYOR as we call it, in the space. So far, different types of wallets are available such as hardware wallets, software wallets, web-based wallets, and paper wallets. When choosing, consider the pros and cons of each type to find the right one for you.
Crypto wallets are separated into two categories based on their format and industry adoption. These are, of course: software and hardware wallets. We will continue exploring these two options and show you how to create them to store your digital assets.
Software wallets are online wallets that can be downloaded on your desktop, phone or as a web extension.
They are connected to the internet, which means there is a risk of getting hacked by signing a suspicious transaction, so you should always be careful.
Since they are online (connected to the internet), they are very easy to use and accessible, meaning they are great for storing small amounts of crypto and using them for quick transactions.
When creating a software wallet, always write down your seed phrase and back up your private key.
How to create a Software Wallet:
Step 1: Select a software wallet. You did your research and found a wallet you would like to use. This wallet is either on your phone or computer, and you have considered all the pros and cons of it (chain, security, fees, etc…)
Step 2: Download the wallet to your device. Once you’ve settled on the software wallet, the next step is downloading the wallet app to your phone or computer.
Step 3: Create an account. The great news is that software wallets require minimum to zero information when setting up. This mainly includes writing down the seed phrase and backing up the private key.
Step 4: Fund your wallet. You are all set up; now it's time to transfer crypto into the wallet.
Step 5: Voilà, you are ready to go. You can start using your wallet now.
Hardware wallets are used for storing digital assets offline. They are usually referred to as cold wallets.
Being offline implies greater security for storing digital assets because it is almost impossible for hackers to steal your funds.
They are great for storing larger amounts of crypto due to their high-security levels; however, they are not optimized for frequent use because they must be connected to a device to execute a transaction.
As with software wallets, you should back up your private keys; if you lose them, your digital assets will be lost forever.
How to create a Hardware Wallet:
Step 1: Select the hardware wallet. Many crypto wallet options are available. Some of the top names in this space include Ledger and Trezor. Some of the hardware options are more budget-friendly, while others are easier to use or offer higher levels of security.
Step 2: Install the software required to set up your wallet. After purchasing the hardware wallet, the next step is to install the software it comes with. Each hardware wallet has its software that allows you to manage the digital assets within your hardware wallet.
Step 3: Transfer your cryptocurrency. Once your hardware wallet is set up, you can tuck away your cryptocurrency and hold it until it reaches the moon.
Non-custodial Multisig Wallets
The best combination of wallets lies between hardware and software, leveraging security, non-custody, and accessibility features to make the best experience for users and businesses.
Non-custodial multisig wallets can be both hardware and software wallets.
They are great for frequent use, especially dealing with day-to-day crypto transactions.
They leverage high-security standards, making them impenetrable due to preventing a single point of failure.
Even though the technology is complex, the UX does not suffer, and they are very easy to use.

A crypto wallet is a secure digital storage space for storing digital assets like cryptocurrencies.
Several types of crypto wallets are available, including hardware and software wallets, but the most important thing is to get a non-custodial crypto wallet.
Software wallets are online wallets that can be easily accessed on desktops, phones, and web extensions but come with a risk of hacking.
Hardware wallets are offline wallets that provide high-security levels and are ideal for storing larger amounts of cryptocurrency but are not optimized for frequent use.
Non-custodial multisig wallets offer security, non-custody, and accessibility features and are great for frequent use, especially for day-to-day crypto transactions. Bizzllet is an example of a non-custodial multisig wallet for businesses.
