If you own XRP, or if you are considering buying some, the first thing you should determine is where you will store your digital assets. As is the case with other major cryptocurrencies, such as BTC and ETH, XRP can be stored in different ways. You might opt to store your assets in a wallet – any of the multiple types, including paper, software and hardware wallets – or you might choose to store your XRP at a crypto exchange.

Online wallets enable you to access crypto on your browser and desktop wallets are software programs that store your private keys on your personal computer’s hard drive. If your wallet is connected to the internet, this is also known as a hot wallet. Lastly, paper wallets (also known as cold wallets since they are never connected to the internet) allow users to print their public and private keys on a piece of paper.
