How do I store Ether?

To store your Ether, you will use some form of an Ether wallet. Ether wallets function similar to traditional wallets except it’s not a physical wallet and it doesn’t actually store currency – digital currency wallets simply interact with the blockchain to keep track of your funds. Ether wallets work almost exactly the same as Bitcoin wallets.

You’ll find wallets come in many types including desktop, mobile, web, paper and hardware wallets. Each of these has its advantages and disadvantages.

When you buy Ether on Coinsquare, you are automatically given a web wallet to track your Ether so you don’t have to worry about setting one up.
