Bitcoin remains the top cryptocurrency by market capitalisation. Whatever the vicissitudes of the crypto market, investors remain committed to Bitcoin as both a buy-and-hold asset and as a means of exchange.
Like other cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin requires a crypto wallet for storage. Most of the leading crypto wallets—hot or cold—support BTC.
There are a few specialised wallets that do not support Bitcoin. MetaMask, for instance, doesn’t directly support Bitcoin, but that’s because the wallet is specifically designed for Ethereum-based crypto tokens. Other wallets may have a few quirks. Coinbase Wallet Web3 only supports Bitcoin via its mobile app, for example.
Conversely, some crypto wallets are solely dedicated to the big “B.” Electrum only supports Bitcoin. If that’s going to be the only crypto you own, Electrum could be a great choice. It’s never experienced a hack, plus it integrates with Ledger and Trezor.
Here are some leading crypto wallets that support Bitcoin and other top major cryptocurrencies by market cap.*
*At the time of this writing, the top major cryptocurrencies (excluding BUSD) by market cap: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, USD Coin, BNB, XRP, Cardano, Solana, Dogecoin, Polkadot, Dai, Polygon, Shiba Inu, Tron and Avalanche.
If you’re looking for a crypto wallet that supports Ethereum, Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies, Robinhood’s new Web3 Wallet or eToro’s exchange wallet might be a good fit.
