Storing Curve and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store Curve without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your Curve:
Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your Curve 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 Curve 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 Curve. 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 Curve, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Curve) can be stolen.
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Curve offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Curve, 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 Curve is stored.
You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive Curve. Once you have purchased Curve on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your Curve from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
