Introduction to Symbol Wallet

What is Symbol's Wallet?

Symbol's Wallet is an application that allows you to manipulate your Symbol account. It gives you access to your assets in your own hands. You need a wallet to transfer funds and manage your XYM. With a wallet, you can check your balance, send transactions, and participate in harvesting. The wallet is only a tool to manage your Symbol account. Wallets can be exchanged at any time. Most wallets also allow you to manage multiple Symbol accounts from a single application. That is because your assets are not in the wallet, but you yourself manage your assets in the blockchain through the wallet. The wallet is just a tool to manage your assets.

Asset Management

From the wallet you can view your account balance, transaction history, harvest history, and send and receive assets. Some wallets may have the ability to issue their own tokens or display NFTs.

The Symbol feature allows you to issue your own unique token (mosaic). The mosaic can be set to be non-transferable, transferable, or retrievable. Examples of uses include point and share sharing, signatures, voting, and other assets.

Participation in Delegated Harvesting

Anyone with 10000 or more XYM can participate in harvesting (staking). By delegating to an operated node, you can get a probability of harvest fee. The probability of harvesting varies with importance and has little to do with node importance or the number of delegations.

Account Management with Multisig

Multi-sig is a feature to improve security by signing with multiple private keys when moving assets in an account. While a normal account allows you to move assets with a single private key, multisig allows you to protect your assets even if one of your private keys becomes known to someone else or you lose your private key by using multisig joint signatures. Some wallets allow you to set up this multisig.
