What is Emerald Wallet?

Emerald Wallet is a non-custodial or self-custody cryptocurrency wallet.

You can download it to your computer; either Windows, Mac, or Linux; and start using Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ethereum Classic. We also support stablecoins such as USDT, USDC, and DAI.

A non-custodial wallet like Emerald means that you hold your accounts with your private keys, so you have complete control of your cryptocurrencies and assets. The custodial services such as exchanges and custodial wallets, basically have all the assets in their own accounts in the different blockchains, so they control your money and cryptocurrencies.

On Emerald Wallet you may have many wallets with different blockchains enabled inside each one. This means you may have a wallet with Ethereum and Bitcoin and another with Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Ethereum Classic, and so on.

When you enable Ethereum in any wallet inside Emerald, you will automatically have access to some stablecoins in that blockchain as well, such as USDT, USDC, and DAI.

Once you have your wallets, blockchains, and accounts inside Emerald, you can send and receive cryptocurrencies, transform Ethereum into Wrapped Ethereum to use with dapps, organize your finances, make payments, and manage your address book.

On Emerald, you can create new wallets in different ways:

  1. Using a hardware wallet such as Ledger Nano
  2. Creating a new seed phrase (24 word secret phrase)
  3. With a Private Key JSON file
  4. With a raw private key
