Ripple wallet (XRP)
Have you invested in XRP, Ripple's coin? Then you should ensure your coins are properly and safely stored. We recommend you use a hardware wallet, since this is the safest way to store your XRP.
Hardware wallets are our specialty. There's a reason for that: these are the safest wallets for storing and managing your XRP. A hardware wallet is like a physical key to your cryptocurrency, which you can connect to your computer or your phone. You can do so by using a cable or Bluetooth.
The access code (private key) to your coins is generated offline by your hardware wallet. It will also not be shared via the internet, so you'll always keep hackers safely on the outside.
What can you do with a Ripple (XRP) hardware wallet?
You use a hardware to manage and safely store your cryptocurrencies. You can use a wallet to send, receive and even buy or sell XRP.
We call these devices wallets. You can keep your money in your wallet, but technically, you don't really store your coins in your crypto wallet. Your wallet is more like a kind of PIN code, an admission ticket to show that the XRP are truly yours.
These digital coins are actually stored on the blockchain, a virtual ledger, which records everyone's balance and transactions. In order to change the balance and transactions of this ledger, you should show that those XRP belong to you, and you do this using your hardware wallet.
Why a hardware wallet is safe
So, a wallet is a kind of PIN code which gives you the right to make changes to the virtual ledger. That right equals the ownership of your coins and in terms of security you should treat it like you treat your bank account. You also don't handle your debit card and PIN code recklessly. You don't store the latter on your phone either, you don't take a screenshot of it, and you most certainly don't want your PIN code to be accessible from the internet.
You store your PIN code offline, in your head. That's the big difference between a hardware wallet and an online wallet for your desktop or phone: the access to your coins stays offline, where no hacker can reach it.
