5 Best NFT Wallets
Here are some of the best NFT wallets available right now.
Metamask is one of the most popular cryptocurrency wallets. Its browser extension makes it easy to access Web3 sites like NFT Marketplaces with just a few clicks. Metamask also makes it easy to set up multiple addresses so you can keep your NFTs at a separate address from your cryptocurrency, or you can set up a single address for each NFT you buy.
ConsenSys, the company behind Metamask, created a mobile app in 2020. Holdings sync seamlessly across desktop and mobile versions of the wallet. The mobile app also includes a built-in browser for decentralized applications, or dApps, and NFT marketplaces.
If you need to exchange currencies to buy an NFT, Metamask has a built-in exchange function. You can also limit the amount you pay in gas fees, although there is a risk that a transaction will fail. If you need to use a different blockchain, Metamask offers support for alternative platforms.
2. Math Wallet
Math Wallet offers a solid alternative to Metamask. Its biggest differentiator is that it supports over 70 blockchains. It offers a web, desktop, and mobile version of the wallet that syncs across all devices, and it also has integrations with multiple hardware wallets. Math Wallet will also allow you to create multiple addresses.
Math Wallet integrates a dApp browser that allows users to view NFT markets. It includes several other features for cryptocurrency holders – staking, trading, etc. – and it also offers its own utility token.
3. Alpha Wallet
AlphaWallet is an open source cryptocurrency wallet. Although it has some limitations – it’s mobile-only and Ethereum-only – its native support for blockchain games and NFTs sets it apart.
The simple user interface makes it very easy to understand for beginners. There is a whole section of the wallet dedicated to NFTs and gaming tokens. It also allows users to add meta tags to their tokens so that they can easily search and filter them when browsing through their collection.
AlphaWallet works directly with OpenSea, CryptoKitties, Dragonereum, and ChainZ Arena, among other NFT marketplaces and blockchain games. Like others, it has a built-in dApp browser to find more NFT markets and direct access to DeFi apps like Compound.
4. Trust Wallet
Trust Wallet is a popular mobile-only wallet owned by Binance. Although it supports multiple blockchains, including Ethereum, its association with Binance means it is heavily biased towards smart chain tokens. That said, if you are interested in NFTs on the Binance Smart Chain, Trust Wallet may be the best option for you as it is already configured for BEP tokens.
Like other wallets, Trust Wallet includes a dApp browser to find NFT marketplaces, making it easy to purchase NFTs in the wallet. It also includes a built-in exchange feature that allows users to easily exchange currencies so that they have the necessary token to trade the NFTs they want to buy.
5. Coinbase Wallet
Many people know Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) for its cryptocurrency exchange. It also offers a noncustodial wallet suitable for holding NFTs and other tokens. Unlike holding cryptocurrency on the Coinbase exchange, holding assets in the Coinbase wallet gives the user full control over their crypto.
Coinbase released a browser extension in 2021, making it easier for users to use their wallet across devices to purchase NFTs and use other dApps. Users can also access dApps through the built-in browser in the mobile wallet.
A unique benefit of Coinbase Wallet is the ease of transferring tokens to others using usernames instead of public wallet addresses. This can make transactions more personal and provide a greater sense of security knowing you are sending assets to the right person.
Coinbase also offers one-click cloud backup for your private keys, storing them on your personal cloud drive. This can help you not lose access to your NFTs or other funds held in the wallet.
