If you have cryptocurrency, you need to keep it in a safe place. But in order to be sure of its safety and the accuracy of transactions carried out with it, regularly monitor the account balance.

Since virtual money is at the peak of popularity today, the developers have taken care of creating a variety of options for their placement. Now users know how to store, check the balance and manage their digital capital.

How to choose an Ethereum wallet

The variety of Ethereum-enabled cryptocurrency wallets poses a difficult choice for us. To make things easier, ask yourself a few questions:

  • How often will I use my wallet?
  • How much am I going to keep?
  • Do I plan long-term storage or constant movement of funds?
  • Am I going to store other coins besides Ethereum?

Having sorted this out, you will understand which option is more appropriate for you. When planning crypto trading and currency exchange activities, you can use the exchange storage. For regular small payments, online wallets or mobile applications are suitable. When it comes to storing large amounts of money, security is paramount. Here you need to choose between desktop and hardware wallets.

Checking Eth balance

You can check your balance and transaction history on an Ethereum blockchain explorer like EthVM, Etherscan or Ethplorer.

These websites show the full record of your activities. All you have to do is find your public Ethereum address of a 42-character string starting with "0x". It is not recommended to open the wallet every time to check your balance.

Keep in mind that when checking the balances of other cryptocurrencies on other blockchains, you will need to use other browsers.
