The first decentralised cryptocurrency to hit the markets was Bitcoin, which was created in 2009 and is widely regarded as the first modern cryptocurrency. It was the first way that people were able to have a digital means of exchange amongst themselves in a Peer-To-Peer (P2P) fashion, that allowed them to stay anonymous and keep a public record of all transactions using blockchain technology. After the coin’s release, a group of enthusiasts began to exchange the currency. By 2010, the first Bitcoin exchanges started appearing, along with other popular bitcoin alternatives.

By 2012, major merchants started to accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment, with WordPress being the first. This was followed by other online retailers such as Expedia, Microsoft, and many others. There are now a lot of merchants that view cryptocurrencies as a legitimate payment method, especially Bitcoin.

A digital wallet refers to a secure digital place to store, send, and receive these types of digital currencies, much like a physical wallet would hold physical money. Most tokens will have an official wallet, but there are also many other wallets that people are able to use, each with their own perks and benefits (and disadvantages also). The cryptocurrency itself is not actually stored in the wallet, a wallet will work through the use of storing private keys that only you know, that relate to individual tokens, and enables them to be spent. The wallet essentially stores the private and public keys, therefore allowing the user to send and receive coins. The wallet can also act as a personal ledger, storing all the transactions made by the user. All wallets have different features, some more essential to people than others.

Privacy is a feature that people value very highly. Usually bitcoiners want the freedom of choice when it comes to giving away their private details or not, and some wallets don’t need any information at all. Some wallets provide other security features such as an automatic generation of a new public key for each transaction that is made, making it much harder for people to follow the ownership of these coins. Another example of a security feature is automatic denial of payment if an address has already been used. This however, will reduce your privacy along with everyone else in the network.

Security is another of the most important features that a wallet can offer, as people often expect them to be even more robust than a banking system. All wallets offer various different security options for their users, but people need to feel secure in the fact that hackers will not be getting their hands on their bitcoins anytime soon.

Other features that are important to people often include if the wallet accepts multiple cryptocurrencies or not. It can be a great benefit to users as it allows them to conduct business with users of any cryptocurrency and having it seamlessly exchanged into a cryptocurrency of their choice.
