What is a wallet?#

A crypto wallet serves as a tool for storing, transferring, and engaging with blockchain networks. These wallets come in three primary types: software, hardware, and paper wallets. Depending on their connectivity to the internet, wallets can also be categorized as either "hot" or "cold."

A crypto wallet is composed of pairs of public and private keys. These keys are utilized for signing, sending, receiving transactions, and monitoring asset ownership. The wallet generates a public key from the private key, resulting in a public address represented by alphanumeric characters. This address is used to receive cryptocurrency assets and can be shared with others. However, the private key must remain confidential to prevent asset loss. Before interacting with the X1, it is essential to create a plugin wallet. We recommend using the following two wallets:
