So you’ve just gained interest in ICON, but don’t know which wallet is best suited for ICX? Don’t worry, we’ve done the research for you. And we even asked for the community’s input! In no particular order, here’s our list of the top 3 cryptocurrency wallets you should use to store your ICX.
A little something to keep in mind: ICON performed its token swap in October 2018, thus changing from ERC20 tokens issued on the Ethereum network to Mainnet ICX.
As the name suggests, ICONex is the official wallet of ICON and supports ICX, ETH, and various ERC20 tokens. Initially a Chrome extension, it has now expanded to mobile, available both on iOS and Android. With a user-friendly interface, ICONex offers a liquid exchange and convenience through easy management of your wallets with features such as “Export of Wallet Bundles”. This wallet is a great choice for small fund transfers and storage.
“ICONex – Google Chrome based wallet! Quick and easy to use!” says one community member on why he holds ICX on ICONex.
Ledger Hardware Wallet
Hardware wallets are undeniably the most secure option when it comes to storing large sums of cryptocurrency, as they are stored offline, thereby making it nearly impossible to hack. Ledger Nano S, which is a USB device that supports over a thousand tokens, was a particularly popular choice amongst many ICONists for its safety (which includes storing your private keys, that are again protected by a PIN). Some in the community also use ICONex and Ledger together, a good combination of both security and convenience.
Trust Wallet is a mobile wallet that supports any ERC20, ERC223 and ERC721 tokens, and most major cryptocurrencies. The app protects your private keys by storing them locally on your device and provides authentication support such as fingerprint and PIN codes for added convenience. Simple and intuitive, Trust enables you to send, receive and store multiple currencies with full security audited systems. It also allows you to interact with DApps thanks to its built-in app browser, Web3.
