Nano cryptocurrency came to limelight in 2018 as fee-less currency to perform transactions.
Nano (XRB), previously known as RaiBlocks, increased in price in 2017-2018 and came on the traders’ radar. I believe you too invested in XRB around the same time and now are looking to secure your Nano cryptocurrency.
The currency is not that old, but it has garnered enough support from the cryptosphere. That’s one reason it has almost all the wallet infrastructure in place for each type of user.
So here are some of the popular Nano (XRB) wallets that you can use to store XRB coins securely:
2019’s Best wallets to Store Nano (XRB)
Cosmos Hardware Wallets
|Ledger Nano X [Recommended]|
|Ledger Nano S|
Cosmos Android & iOS Wallet Apps
Cosmos Web Wallets
#1. Ledger Nano X – Hardware Wallet
Ledger Nano X has become my go-to crypto hardware wallet in a relatively short time.
The reason is that it’s Bluetooth enabled and comes with a small battery, which makes it possible to use this hardware wallet wirelessly with iOS and Android devices.
The wallet is HD wallet and a non-custodial one where you control the private keys of your funds. As of now, Ledger Nano X supports 1000+ cryptocurrencies, including Nano currency.
Plus there it is being developed by Ledger SAS- a France based start-up pioneering the security of digital assets for end users. So far, the experience of using Nano X has been satisfying because of its hardware and premium quality Ledger Live app, which is the software interface.
But for now Ledger Live app doesn’t directly support XRB currency, and for now, you need to use their NanoVault- the official wallet of Nano currency to store XRB on Ledger device
#2. NanoVault [Nano (XRB) Web/Desktop Wallet]
NanoVault is another official wallet of Nano currency. It is a web wallet as well as a desktop wallet which open source.
The web wallet is easy to use and allows you to make non-custodial Nano wallets where you the get seed of your wallet while setting it up for the first time.
It allows you to see the password which keeps you seed encrypted in the browser itself. Losing this seed would mean losing all of your XRB coins.
So make sure you keep a safe and smart back-up of your seed.
Apart from that if you are not a fan of web wallets due to phishing attacks, I suggest you download their full node desktop clients for Windows, Mac or Linux.
#3. NanoWallet – Web Wallet
NanoWallet.io is a go-to wallet for many Nano cryptocurrency users.
That’s simply because it is effortless to use and it is a web wallet. NanoWallet.io allows you to store your seed with yourself and also sends the encrypted seed to its servers.
This is done so ensure you can recover your funds in a case where you have lost your seed. The UI is very clean and easy to use for any user.
Moreover, using this wallet, you can create several alias names and accounts to send/receive XRB coins that too, without any transaction fees.
#4. Natrium – Mobile Wallet
Natrium is for mobile users and if you XRB is also a mobile-first cryptocurrency.
It is an HD wallet that allows you to back-up your seed at the time of the set-up. Keeping this seed is essential as losing this would mean losing your Nano (XRB) currency.
Also, anyone who is in control of this seed will be able to control your Nano funds even from another wallet, so keep it secure. Some other features of Natrium wallet are:
Secure pin and biometric authentication, Send NANO instantly to anyone, anywhere in the world. Receive real-time notifications when you receive NANO, Add and manage multiple NANO accounts, Load NANO from a paper wallet or a seed, and share your account address with a personalized QR card.
As of now, Natrium is available for Android & iOS devices.
Conclusion: Best RaiBlocks (XRB) Wallets
Nano currency is based on block-lattice, and that’s why it can facilitate fee-less transactions. In the future, fee-less transactions are going to be a niche in itself.
So if you are a Nano currency holder and believe in that future, you should not risk any of your Nano coins on any exchange. Especially these days when exchanges like Binance are also getting hacked.
If you are looking for a permanent solution for Nano currency and other cryptocurrencies that you have, you should consider having Ledger Nano X as it supports 1000+ currencies, including Nano.
