Types of wallets

Wallets are programs that manage your private keys which are used to acces your cryptocurrency. There are different types of wallets each with their own trade-offs. Generally wallets are divided into two broad categories. The first category includes the types used for long term offline storage, also called ‘cold storage’. This category includes paper wallets & hardware wallets, and considered more secure because it is not susceptible to malware (keyloggers, screen captures, etc.). The second category, called ‘hot wallets’, includes all the wallets that are online such as mobile wallets, desktop wallets, web wallets etc. Hot wallets are convenient for day to day use in contrast to cold storage which is more security focused.

A crucial part of a wallet is that the user has full control of his own keys and noone else, that's why they're often called non-custodial or self-custodial wallets. There's a saying 'not your keys, not your coins', which boils it down to its essence. There are also programs where you don’t control your own keys. These programs are essentially crypto banks where a trusted party manages your money. Confusingly they are sometimes called custodial “wallets”. This website focuses only on noncustodial wallets.
