Storing Chiliz and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store Chiliz without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your Chiliz:
Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your Chiliz are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password and other advanced security features. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Chiliz online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform.
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or other device in order to use and manage your Chiliz. Using a software wallet gives you full control over your private keys, so you are not dependent on third parties. The risk is that you alone are in charge of the security of your Chiliz, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Chiliz) can be stolen.
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Chiliz offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Chiliz, because the private keys are stored on a separate and offline device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In many ways, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Chiliz is stored.
You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive Chiliz. Once you have purchased Chiliz on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your Chiliz from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
