  • no seed phrases or private keys - instead, the wallet uses encrypted secret key share (one key is stored on your device, and one on their server)
  • very easy and quick set-up, despite good security
  • user-friendly interface which makes it easy for new users
  • can view and send NFTs
  • connect to dApps
  • can purchase stable coins in the wallet with a bank transfer (0.1% fee for stable coins) or credit card
  • wide range of token swaps and multi-currency support
  • can buy and sell crypto within the wallet
  • excellent help functionality - can send a message in the app (usual reply time is under 3 minutes)
  • the wallet requires access to your Google Drive or iCloud and a face scan to set up its security (some users may not like this)
  • not fully non-custodial in term of users storing their own private keys
  • no desktop version
