Wallets are the safest way to store your XRP. Here are the top picks for the Ripple wallets:
Ledger Nano S – It is a hardware wallet that is designed for the digital currency, and it also supports XRP. These wallets are hardware wallets which means they can be touched and carried in the pocket. Cold storage wallets are encrypted devices that store users’ Ripple offline and provide a layer of security against the threats that emerge due to being connected to the internet.
A ripple wallet is similar to your physical wallet, except that it’s virtual. It stores your Ripple in a safe manner. Here is how you can create and fund your Ripple wallet:
Secure your computer – Ensure that your computer is secure if you are planning to make any transactions using Ripple. If your PC is not secure, your Ripple wallet is also not secure.
Download Ripple client – Download Ripple client for your operating system. Once downloaded, install the package and launch Ripple client using a shortcut.
Create a wallet – If you are first starting out, you will need to create an empty account. A popup window will be presented thereafter to download the wallet. Give it a name and location that you can remember. You should create a strong password with letters, symbols, and numbers, write the combination, and keep it safe somewhere.
