clear navigation or it can be more dynamic, able to adopt some new functions in addition to the existing ones. Installation Depending on the type of wallet, the installation process can be easy (for mobile versions) or complicated (for headless node wallet).

Infrastructure Needs

Some types of wallets operate only from one local console, while another type of software requires connection to neighbors with a static IP. Safety With a wallet one gets access to his coins, for that private or public keys should be used. Private keys work like a password to send coins and therefore are critical to guard the safety of your wallet. Public keys are used to get IOTAs. You may publish them everywhere and it is secure. Note that the level of safety can be different from wallet to wallet. Ability for upgrade

In some wallets it is possible to add new functions and features, a user can adopt it for his needs. Cross-Platform arrangement Whether the selected wallet will operate for both devices – mobile and desktop. In general, there is no all-round perfect wallet. Such factors as ability of modification to your personal expectations are optional. Choosing a wallet, pay attention to your needs. It is always a compromise between safety and usability.

Best Wallet to receive and send IOTA is a Light wallet.

You have two options to run one:

  • GUI Light Wallet
  • Nostalgia Light Wallet.

Graphic user interface (GUI) Light Wallet

This type of wallet allows to use IOTA without connection to neighbors, because it is integrated into the GUI. Select the Light Wallet, and then a connection to a public node will be available.


Nostalgia Light Wallet

Nostalgia Light Wallet is suitable for those who doesn’t plan to run a full node on his PC. Just connect this wallet to a Pow-enabled server: open the nostalgia.html file in an html editor. Public Light Wallet Servers that are not Pow- enabled will not allow this.

I prefer the GUI Light Wallet to store IOTA, because it is the easiest and speedy way of getting a wallet of IOTA up and running, and - opposite to Nostalgia - authorization of servers is not needed. Using the GUI Light Wallet, you generally interact or with your own accepted full node, or you interact with a full node of the third party or provider of Light Wallet. If you are working with your own full node, it’s a piece of cake, and your bankroll will for sure be secure and safe. But do not be afraid of cooperating with the third parties, they cannot steal you cryptocoins because your private key as a password will always be in your possession. Nevertheless, if you need high security level, maybe you should try to use a quorum of Light Wallet providers instead of a single third party.

To sum up, currently the GUI Light Wallet is the best wallet for IOTA storage.

After Ripple had rebranded its xRapid product as On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) and partnered with the largest Mexican exchange Bitso, the introduction of ODL in cooperation with MoneyGram starts bringing its first fruits. As part of the collaboration, Ripple has invested in Bitso and got them to add one of its top executives to the board of directors.


On-Demand Liquidity successfully integrated on Bitso

A member of the XRP community @XrpCenter reports that things are looking good for XRP on the largest Mexican exchange Bitso and for Ripple’s ODL product. ODL was introduced there after the crypto giant invested an undisclosed amount in the trading platform.

The chart in the tweet shows that the XRP/MXN pair now accounts for 80 percent of the overall trading volume of Bitso.

Bitso became the key partner of Ripple and MoneyGram at introducing On-Demand Liquidity to the Mexican market. So far, the implementation has been going successfully.

This has not impacted the XRP price much though, since over the last 24 hours it rose merely by 0.54 percent. Unlike it, BTC and its forks – BCH and BSV – have posted much higher gains, as reported by U.Today earlier.
