Especially in the financial technology world, life can go, go, go all of the time. When you’re dealing in cryptocurrency and you want to make an exchange or buy goods quickly from your stash of crypto-assets, a good mobile wallet is invaluable. Mobile apps can also be a great counterpart to hardware wallets such as Ledger products which come with their own apps.

Even if you are just starting out in the world of cryptocurrency, having access to your investments from the convenience of your phone can make it much easier to integrate crypto with your everyday life.

When determining the best crypto mobile wallet for you, it’s important to think about a few key factors. First, the types of cryptocurrency you intend to deal in, whether just Bitcoin, or if you want to step into ethereum and altcoins such as litecoin and dash. It is also important to know the level of security you need, how complex of an interface you feel comfortable with, and, of course, your phone’s operating system–Android or iOS.

These 10 mobile cryptocurrency wallet apps are among the most widely-used wallets in the world when it comes to using your phone or tablet:

Cryptocurrency Wallet Mobile Apps


(Android only)

Electrum is a bitcoin-only wallet.

Electrum has mentioned an iOS app in the works but is currently only available on Android and desktop. This wallet supports cold storage with private keys that never leave the device. You can still go online with a watching-only wallet.

They offer multisig, interface with popular hardware wallets like Trezor, and support for third-party plugins. This free wallet is open-source with verifiable security and redundant servers that offer a no-downtime experience.

Mycelium is one of those tried and true wallets, having been tested by hundreds of thousands of users over the course of years. Although they have experienced some bugs with the iOS app, which is somewhat of a recent release, they are highly-rated for both Android and desktop.

They support many of the features hardcore bitcoiners care about like integrations–including with Trezor hardware–an exchange in-wallet, watch-only addresses, and more. They are also working on blockchain-based fiat accounts and even linked debit cards.

Coinomi is an open-source, multi-asset crypto wallet with broad support for all the latest cryptocurrencies and tokens. You can exchange them from within the interface using ShapeShift. It supports multiple languages, and they offer a lot of security and anonymity.

Mobi is a Bitcoin wallet with a lot of extra, real-world features including a Visa debit card that supports more than 100 currencies worldwide.

Coinbase is a well-tested option with 8.2M customers in 32 countries. You can exchange ether, bitcoin, and litecoin, but not Ethereum Classic using their wallet.

It’s a quick and simple setup, to begin with Coinbase, and they even offer recurring investments so you can increase your crypto funds monthly or weekly without ever worrying about it.
