What is xPortal and what makes this wallet so great?

xPortal is a versatile digital wallet and global payments app that puts you in control of your assets. 

Aside from serving as a bridge between crypto and fiat, xPortal also allows users to interact with decentralized applications (dApps) and cutting-edge technologies like AR and spatial computing. 

One thing that is essential to understand is that xPortal does not hold or control any of your crypto - it simply provides a secure interface for managing it. 

As a completely decentralized and non-custodial platform, we do not store or have access to your funds at any point. This means that you, as the user, own the private key and therefore have full control over your funds. Plus, with minimal fees (as low as $0.001 per transaction), xPortal is an affordable option for securely exchanging and managing crypto on your mobile phone. 

How to install xPortal

First things first, so let us tell you about the devices supported by xPortal:

  • Android: We support most Android devices running Android 7.0 or later (API level 24). 
  • iOS: xPortal works on Apple devices running iOS 14.0 or later
  • Huawei: xPortal is supported by Huawei operating system as well.

Here’s what you need to do once you have downloaded the app from the Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore:

  1. Open the app and choose whether you would like to create a new wallet or import an existing one. 
  2. To create a new wallet, choose that particular option, enter your phone number, and your verification code. 
  3. Then set your PIN and you will officially have an xPortal wallet that you can start exploring right away. 

It’s important to stress that some of the app functionalities will not be unlocked until you back up your secret phrase, either by writing it down manually or creating an encrypted iCloud or Google Drive backup. This security measure is in place in order to minimize the risk of losing access to your wallet and the funds stored inside it.

If you don’t know what a secret phrase is, you can find more information about it here.

How safe is the xPortal wallet?

Your assets and data are secured using cutting-edge encryption and verification techniques. Your private key (secret phrase) can be used in the event that your phone is lost or stolen to recover your money.

Additional steps to secure your xPortal wallet

To ensure the security of your xPortal mobile app, be sure to implement a secondary level of authentication, such as Passcode or Touch/ Face ID, to access your funds. This prevents unauthorized individuals from gaining access to your wallet in the event of a lost or unattended device. Additionally, always ensure your device is free of malware and do not install xPortal onto a rooted device. For added safety, remember to only download the app from the official links provided on our website:

To enjoy maximum peace of mind and go the extra mile in terms of security activate a Guardian on your account. This will add a 2FA layer on your wallet, similar to what you have on your email or online accounts, making it even harder for your account to be compromised.

What are your options as an investor for storing your digital assets

One option for storing your crypto is through custodial wallets, such as the ones provided by exchanges, like Binance. This type of wallet is managed by a third party, similar to a bank managing your checking or savings account. The advantage of using a custodial wallet is having protection against  the risk of losing your crypto if you forget your password. However, there are limitations to using this kind of wallets, such as restricted access and the potential loss of crypto if the provider is compromised.

Alternatively, you could opt for a hardware wallet which is a physical device, similar to a thumb drive, that stores your private keys offline. This additional layer of security has gained popularity among users.

As the world of cryptocurrency continues to develop, it is crucial to carefully manage your digital assets. Our promise is to offer a dependable, easy-to-use, and secure crypto wallet, enabling you to confidently navigate the realm of decentralized finance. 

Whether you are a novice in the crypto world or an experienced investor, having the appropriate tools can make all the difference. Therefore, take control of your financial stability and safety with xPortal. Your digital wealth is in good hands!
