Phantom Wallet - A friendly Solana wallet built for DeFi & NFTs

A Phantom wallet account can be created by following these steps: 1. Go to the Phantom website and click on the ‘Create a Wallet’ button. 2. Enter your email address and create a strong password.
Phantom is a self-custody wallet that includes DeFi services such as an on-platform altcoin swapping, an NFT marketplace and staking services. It does so by being a downloadable extension that can be added to your browser. It also allows you to transfer your digital assets to a hardware wallet.
Phantom is decentralized and anonymous, which means that when dApps transact with your wallet, all of them are transparent and traceable. This is because they are authenticated by smart-contracts just as all other blockchain-based transactions are and are therefore traceable through the blockchain.
A major attraction of Phantom wallet is that it focuses on identifying and preventing malicious attacks against its users, such as phishing attacks and spam NFTs by alerting users to possible attacks before the transaction is complete. An additional feature that they have is a bug-bounty that rewards users with up to $50,000 rewards if they are able to identify any vulnerabilities that may put users’ funds at risk.

Which Cryptocurrencies are Phantom Compatible With?

The Phantom wallet can be used to store any cryptocurrency or NFT that is built on the Solana blockchain. These include:
  • Solana (SOL)
  • Tether USD (USDT)
  • USD Coin (USDC)
  • EveryOne Coin (EV1)
  • Serum (SRM)
  • Raydium (RAY)
  • Viraverse (VIRAL)
  • Solana-based NFTs
There is currently a closed-beta to test compatibility with Ethereum (ETH) and Polygon-based altcoins. Public release is scheduled for some time at the beginning of 2023.
