A multi-chain wallet refers to a wallet that supports storing, trading, and managing tokens on multiple public blockchains (main chains). For example, a wallet that supports two or more public chains such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and EOS is a multi-chain wallet. Common multi-chain wallets include imToken, imKey, and others.
The imKey hardware wallet is a multi-chain wallet that currently supports eleven public chains and their on-chain tokens for storage, trading, and management. These chains include Ethereum, Bitcoin, EOS, Cosmos, TRON, Nervos, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Polkadot, Kusama, Filecoin, as well as mainstream EVM-compatible chains and Layer2 ecosystems. It also supports mainstream stablecoins such as USDT, USDC, DAI, PAX, TUSD, and USDX.
By creating and storing a multi-chain wallet offline using imKey, you can manage assets and various tokens on different chains with a single set of mnemonic words without the need for multiple tools to manage your multiple private keys. More importantly, the imKey hardware wallet can generate and store the private keys for these public chains offline, thus ensuring the security of your encrypted assets.
