Hosted wallet explained

Acquiring cryptocurrency prompts the question of how you will handle your coins. There are several types of wallets, and each one has its pros and cons. In this overview, we’re covering the features of a hosted wallet as one of the ways to store your coins.


Security best practices from Freewallet Support team

When it comes to online security, people often get careless as they don’t realize the direct consequences. To help you stay safe while working with your crypto coins, we made a list of basic security rules, based on the most common support request cases.

On June 1st, EOS tokens will be frozen

On June 1st, 2018 Block.one, the company behind EOS, will distribute the last block of EOS tokens. On that day at 22:59:59 UTC, all EOS Tokens will become fixed (ie. frozen) and will be non-transferrable on the Ethereum blockchain. Before that happens, you can either exchange your EOS Tokens for another cryptocurrency or wait until a new blockchain is created.
