How to create a Stellar wallet?

COINQVEST comes with a built-in custodial account for merchants. Your funds are secured in our encrypted environment with multi-sig enabled on our hot-wallet to protect your funds and minimize the risk of theft and other types of incidents.

Nevertheless you might wish to automatically withdraw your funds and store them in a wallet that is entirely controlled by you with governance over the private key. This way you are solely responsible and in charge of the security of your funds.

Below is a list of Stellar wallets for your consideration. We do not endorse any of them and ask you to do your own research on the reliability and reputation of each wallet provider. Generally it is considered safest to store your private key on a hardware wallet, such as the Ledger Nano S.

Creating an Account Programmatically

Albeit outside of the scope of this document it is easy to create a Stellar account programmatically and obtain control of the private key. This is a good starting point if you are a developer and wish to create your own wallet.

Stellar Account Viewer

The Stellar Account Viewer is a browser based wallet provided by the Stellar Development Foundation (SDF). It provides a simple front-end interface and the easiest way to create a Stellar account. Unfortunately the account viewer only supports Stellar Lumens (XLM). If you wish to store other assets, please consider one of the other options below.

Stellar Account Viewer and Ledger Nano S

If you are in possession of a Ledger Nano S, the account viewer provides access to your account without ever exposing your private key. This feature is available on Chrome, Brave, Opera (and any Chromium based browser). To use it, simply install the Stellar app from Ledger and enable browser support in the app settings.

Keybase

Keybase is a tool to secure groups, files, and chat and Stellar assets for everyone. Albeit mainly an end-to-end encrypted chat and file sharing application, Keybase provides a wallet to securely store and manage your funds. It supports multiple assets, conversion and path payments. If your data is in the cloud, it should be encrypted. If you're putting people together, give Keybase a try.
