10 best crypto wallets for Android


Joe Hindy / Android Authority

Cryptocurrency has grown tremendously over the past couple of years. People have made millions with Bitcoin, Doge, and Etherium. New cryptos are created every day and while most of them are arguably scams, some of them are really promising. Of course, the increase in the popularity of crypto means that there are many crypto wallets available. Not all are good, but some do the job very well. Here are the best crypto wallets for Android.

The best crypto wallets for Android


Bitcoin wallet

Price: Free / Varies

Bitcoin Wallet is a fairly basic but functional crypto wallet. The app allows you to buy, sell and store BTC, BCH, and ETH. You can also send and receive the crypto as you like. Some other features include trading between currencies, a live market data widget for the home screen, customizable network fees, and more. The fees can be a bit miserable, but it works well for what it does.


Coinbase

Price: Free / Varies

Coinbase is a crypto exchange, but you can also host and transfer crypto to and from it. The app works almost like a brokerage house, but for crypto. You can track the prices of many currencies, although you can’t buy all of them on Coinbase. This does allow you to buy a lot of them, however, including bigger ones like Doge, BTC, and ETH. The verification process can take years and this is probably our biggest complaint about Coinbase.


Coinomi wallet

Price: Release

Coinami Wallet is a functional crypto wallet with a lot of features. It supports all cryptos based on ERC20 / 223/723, Omnilayer, NEM, BEP2 and TRC10. This makes it a great wallet for people looking to store a bunch of different types of coins. The app also has a clean user interface, above average security, multi-seed support, DApp browser, and more. There is very little wrong with this one and we consider it to be one of the best in the crypto wallet industry.


Eclair Mobile

Price: Release

Eclair Mobile is a Lightning Network compatible Bitcoin wallet. The app has a simple and attractive user interface and the ability to specify the channels you want to use. It only supports Bitcoin, but it’s a great app for people who really love Bitcoin. We hope the developers will eventually add support for other cryptos, but for that it works extremely well aside from a few minor cosmetic bugs.


Bitcoin Electrum Wallet

Price: Release

Electrum is one of those apps where it works great, but only if you need what this app specifically offers. It has good security features like local encrypted security keys that never leave your phone. The application also loads quickly and has redundant servers to reduce downtime to virtually zero. It also supports cold storage if you need it. The app has translation issues if you speak anything other than English and the UI might need a bit of work, but it’s otherwise good.

Exodus is one of the most popular crypto wallets. It also does almost everything correctly. It supports dozens of coins, lets you exchange between them, and you can send and receive cryptos right from the app. This covers most of the basics of crypto wallets. The app also encrypts your private keys on the device so that no one can steal them. The app can be a bit slow on busy days, but honestly it’s otherwise fantastic.


Gemini

Price: Free / Varies

Gemini works as both a wallet and an exchange. You can buy, sell, and store various coins including Bitcoin, Etherium, Doge, Bitcoin Cash, and many more. It forces 2FA on each account for added security and it lets you do things like set price alerts so you know when to buy or when to sell. Finally, it comes with Wear OS support, one of the few apps to do so natively in this space.


Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet

Price: Release

Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet

Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet is a stable wallet with decent features. It supports multiple coins including ETH, ERC-20 and several others. The app also has good security with 100% control over your private keys, fast connection to nodes, and the usual things like sending and receiving currencies. The user interface isn’t very interesting, but it’s pretty easy to use once you get used to it. This also supports hardware solutions like Ledger and Trezor in case you want to take that extra step.


Trust

Price: Release

Trust is one of the most popular crypto wallets on mobile. It supports the usual items like ETH and BTC as well as ERC20, BEP20 and ERC721 tokens. You can also add currencies that the app does not support as long as you have the appropriate links. Finally, you can buy cryptos from this app, although sometimes they run out if it’s a particularly busy day. Some other features include a DApps browser, the ability to send and receive crypto, and more.


Some brokerage applications like SoFi

Price: Release

Brokerage apps like SoFi (linked to the button) and Robinhood (google play) allows you to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. However, this is very different from something like a real crypto exchange or a wallet app. You buy the crypto and it will store it for you until you decide to sell it. Thus, it treats crypto like a stock market share rather than a resource that you own. It is quite difficult to get your crypto out of these kinds of places. On the other hand, it is very easy to buy and sell, so it is easier to play in the market. In addition, these services use less fees. Depending on your intentions, a solution like this may be viable for crypto trading, but we recommend that you check a real crypto wallet first.


Bonus: hardware crypto wallets like the Ledger Nano S

Price: Varied

Ledger Nano X

Another solution is to bypass the need for an app altogether and use a hardware wallet. These hardware wallets keep track of your crypto for you and are the safest way to do so at the time of writing. There are a few companies with good products, including Ledger (linked to the button) and Trezor. You can find other options with a few Google searches. There are apps that allow you to transfer your currency in and out of a physical wallet like this and some wallets, like Mycelium, can interact with them directly. These physical crypto wallets can get expensive, but it is the most secure method of storing crypto today.


Bonus: Bitcoin’s Choose your Bitcoin wallet tool

Price: Release

Choose your Bitcoin wallet

If you have a hard time making up your mind, bitcoin.org has a tool that can help you determine which wallet to go with. The tool asks you questions like what operating systems you’re using, explores if a hardware option is better for you, and even asks things like your level of experience. It will also ask you what is most important to you in order to show you the apps with those features. Each app listed in this list can also be found here depending on the criteria you choose. Definitely worth a try if you need more help deciding.
