Security Disclaimer: LinkStake does not guarantee the security of any of the wallets listed below. As with anything pertaining to cryptocurrency there may be unforeseen risks.
Coinbase has an incredible reputation in the cryptocurrency space. Coinbase Wallet is completely different than the normal Coinbase wallet and app. The wallet is user controlled and provides a DApp browser. The traditional Coinbase app is not user controlled.
Since the app has a DApp browser you’ll be able to stake your Chainlink easily. Navigate to your preferred node operator and follow their instructions.
Trust Wallet is the official Crypto Wallet of Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. It operators similarly to other wallets. Some key features it supports are instant exchange and privacy.
Just like with similar wallets, navigate to the DApp browser located within the app. From that area you’ll be able to head over and stake your Chainlink.
The Exodus cryptocurrency wallet is built to be a hub for anything you need to do with your cryptocurrency. You can send, exchange, and receive cryptocurrency through their app. One thing that they do not support is DApps. Instead they have implemented their own special app ecosystem. Current apps include sports betting and Compound Finance.
Unlike other wallets, Exodus does not have a DApp browser, that means that you might have to wait longer to be able to stake your Chainlink. It might be the case that you’ll have to wait until they build their own custom app.
The Atomic Wallet is another user controlled wallet that supports over 300 different cryptocurrencies. They provide both a desktop and a mobile app.
To stake Chainlink with Atomic wallet you will have to wait until they implement support for Chainlink Staking. This could take some time after Chainlink staking is released.
The Ledger Nano S is a popular hardware wallet created by Ledger. A distinct advantage of a hardware wallet is that is not connected to the internet. This means that some attack vectors and security risks are much less likely. However keep in mind that the custom hardware that Ledger runs could have their own unique security risks. Make sure you purchase your Ledger directly from the official website and avoid all third parties. It is critical that the Ledger you buy has not been tampered with.
To stake with your Ledger you’ll need to install the Ledger Live App. Ledger Live is a system that allows you to manage your crypotureency on a computer or phone, while also having the security of a hardware wallet. To complete any transactions you’ll have to confirm a PIN code on your Ledger. From Within the Ledger live app, you will be able to select Chainlink and where you want to stake it. You’ll only be able to do this one Chainlink Staking is live and Ledger adds support to their app. Get the updates from the Ledger team on their Twitter.
Trezor is similar to Ledger, they are both hardware wallets. Differences includes a color screen and some technical security differences
To stake Chainlink with your Trezor hardware wallet you will have to interact with another wallet. This means you could be stuck waiting once Staking comes out. The limited functionality of Trezor has some security benefits, but also limits some usability.
