Cryptocurrency - Understanding the working
A CryptoWallet is a software program that holds ERC20 or NEP5 based cryptocurrencies on the blockchain network and allows the user to do the transactions. If you want to use Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, you will need to have a digital wallet.
These wallets are works like safety deposit boxes. We can store our most valuable treasures like bond certificates, jewellery, will etc in it. If we lose the key of safety box then we could lose the ownership of our valuables.
Cryptocurrency wallets only work when the same way only instead of the physical key we carefully guard our digital keys. It commonly known as master keys and the digital keys take from hexadecimal codes. Something like:
At first quick look, it meets as threaten until you find out it is waxy satisfactory to be written down, printed on paper, typed on a document, turn into image form or even commit to memory.
Hence, when you are greedy digital assets such as ICO tokens and cryptocurrencies in a wallet, there is no reason for not gracefull to the point steps to save your private key backups. You will need your private key to enter your assets and approve transfers from your wallet.

Different types of Crypto Wallets:
There are many types of wallets that provide different ways to store and access your digital currency. Crypto wallets distributed in three categories:
The software wallets are:
Desktop: These wallets are downloaded and installed on the PC or Laptop. You can access it in only the single computer in which they are downloaded. They are providing the highest security, however, your computer is hacked there is a possibility that you may lose all your funds.
We can develop it for Window, Linux and Mac.
Online: These wallets are run on the cloud and they are accessible from any computing device in any location. They are more convenient to access because wallets store your private key online and controlled by the third party which makes them more vulnerable to hacking attacks and thefts.
We are using Node.js technology to build these wallets.
Mobile: The mobile wallets are run on an application on your mobile and they are useful because they can be used anywhere including retail stores. They are much smaller and simpler than desktop wallets because of the limited mobile space.
Hardware: These wallets are different from software wallets in that they store a user’s private key on a hardware device like a USB. They make the transaction online, stored offline which delivers increased security. They can be compatible with several web interfaces and can support different currencies.
Paper: Easy to use and provide the high level of security. While the term paper wallet can simply refer to a physical copy of your public and private key.
