Best Crypto Wallets

If you're buying crypto on an exchange like Robinhood or Coinbase, you don't control the private key. In other words, you do not "custody" (verb) your own crypto. Rather, the exchange does.

In a weird way, this means you do not own your crypto - which means that if the exchange goes bankrupt, you may not ever get possession of your crypto.

Crypto is technically stored on the blockchain, a global decentralized database. Blockchain API's are designed to let end users access and interact with data. Every crypto wallet has a unique address on the blockchain, similar to the GPS coordinates of a house. Crypto wallets store the private key needed to unlock this blockchain address. There are "hot" wallets, warm wallets and cold wallets.
