Today, those looking for a wallet to keep their ETH safe can choose from a wide range of options. Here are some of the best Ethereum wallets in terms of security and reliability.
The Ledger Nano S is virtually ubiquitous among traders who use Ethereum and, for good reasons, is currently one of the best Ethereum hardware wallets on the market.
Ledger Nano S supports Ethereum and the ERC20 tokens, but not only. It supports many other major cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ripple and Litecoin, just to name a few). All this at a very competitive price for the standards offered.
The main strength of this wallet is high security. Cryptocurrencies are stored offline on the device. In addition, the Ledger Nano S features 2-factor authentication and a PIN code.
It also includes integration with MyEtherWallet for sending, receiving and storing tokens. It runs on Windows, macOS and Linux.
Trezor Model T
Trezor Model T is the hardware wallet by Trezor and is capable of storing ETH and all types of ERC20 tokens
Originally designed to store bitcoin, Trezor T is now one of the most popular Ethereum wallets that can be used with the MyEtherWallet web interface.
It offers support for Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and many other cryptocurrencies.
It has advanced security features such as 2-factor authentication, SSH and GPG encryption. It is lightweight and compact and comes in 2 colours: black and white. It is compatible with Windows, macOS and Linux.
MetaMask is another of the most popular choices among Ethereum fans. It is a browser extension that provides instant access to the Ethereum network.
MetaMask is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Brave. It allows storing, receiving and sending Ether, as well as accessing dApps on the Ethereum ecosystem.
One of the main advantages of MetaMask is that it can encrypt personal passwords and store them on the computer, which can then be exported very easily.
However, it is not a particularly user-friendly system and therefore not very easy to use.
This is a mobile wallet created for Ethereum and ERC20 tokens. It is available on both iOS and Android platforms and for all desktop devices (Mac, Linux and Windows).
The wallet is non-custodial, which means that the company doesn’t keep any information about users’ passwords and seeds, making it very secure.
It offers several features including sending coins to the contacts in the address book, a hybrid exchange, the ability to participate in ICOs and IEOs and much more.
There are a lot of supported ERC20 tokens, the full list can be found HERE.
In addition to Ethereum, there is support also for Bitcoin and Litecoin.
