Our favorite Stellar Lumen Wallets
We tested all of the 13 wallets that Stellar.org links to as well as some new Stellar wallets not yet listed on Stellar.org to find our favorites. We selected the below wallets based primarily on user-friendliness, and we only selected one per category. They are presented in no particular order.
iPhone Wallet App - lumenette.com
This beautiful, simple mobile Stellar wallet allows you to send lumens to anyone via SMS or email and has support for multiple assets. Your secret key is stored locally on your phone. Because Apple has not yet announced support for lumens, you’ll need to download this app via TestFlight.
Chrome Browser Plugin - pay.meta.re
MetaPay is analogous to MetaMask for Stellar Lumens. This Chrome plugin allows you to create transactions in your browser. The design is very similar to the Stellar Account Viewer, and it allows developers to include a link on their site that calls up the plugin and pre-populates a transaction for their users.
Stellar Account Viewer
Slim Web Wallet - stellar.org/account-viewer
This simple web wallet is provided by Stellar.org and powers basic lumen transactions with memos. It also generates new key pairs and integrates with the Ledger hardware wallet.
Suite of Web Tools - stellar.org/laboratory
The Stellar Laboratory is a series of tools provided by Stellar.org for interacting with the network - setting your inflation destination, making offers, building transactions for other assets, etc. It also integrates with the Ledger hardware wallet.
Ledger Nano S Stellar App
Hardware Wallet - lumenauts.com/projects/stellar-app-on-ledger-nano-s
The only hardware wallet that currently has a Stellar app is the Ledger Nano S. We highly recommend storing your Stellar-based assets on a hardware wallet, particularly if your holdings are greater than your paycheck. There are some easy-to-miss steps when using the Ledger Nano S; check out our Ledger tutorial here.
DEX Wallet - stellarterm.com
StellarTerm doubles as a Stellar Lumens wallet and a UI for the Stellar DEX. It integrates with the Ledger Nano S, allows you to easily set up trustlines and make offers on the Stellar DEX, and likely has had around 50,000 users.
Desktop Wallet - github.com/stellarterm/stellarterm-desktop-client/releases
Again, StellarTerm takes the cake for the desktop wallet category. You can do everything you could on StellarTerm’s web wallet on your desktop. This is potentially safer (unless you are using a hardware wallet) because you don’t have to fear a BlackWallet-esque attack where a hacker takes over a domain and spoofs the site design.
Custodial Wallet - stronghold.co
Stronghold serves as an anchor for Bitcoin and Ethereum in the Stellar network. You can use their web app to acquire Bitcoin and Ethereum on the network as well as trade on the network through their DEX UI. As a custodial wallet, they hold your private key for you and provide two factor authentication.
