Desktop Wallet

    A desktop wallet is a cryptocurrency and digital asset software wallet that is downloaded directly onto a computing device. Desktop wallets are almost always non-custodial in nature, which means that users have complete control over their private keys. Desktop wallets are hot wallets, which means they are always connected to the internet unless the computing device is turned off or the wallet is installed on a secondary computer that is not connected to the internet. Most desktop wallets include password protection and the ability to generate a recovery phrase as a backup in order to regenerate keys.
