10 free wallets for storing your #XRP safely Click To Tweet

before starting, know that every XRP wallet you store XRP in requires a reserve of 20 XRP. So, if you start storing your Ripple XRP on all different wallets, you will have to leave 20 XRP on each one.

According to Ripple, the reserve was put in place “to protect the shared global ledger from growing excessively large as the result of spam or malicious usage.”

With this in mind, it’s best to read about each XRP wallet and choose your favorite one. Below is a list of free wallets to safely store your Ripple XRP.

Storing Ripple XRP Safely on IOS and Android

For some, storing crypto inside a wallet app is the best method. By using an app, you have immediate access to your cryptocurrency. You can easily transfer to another wallet or exchange it for another currency.

However, some would argue that it’s not the safest option out there.

Due to the nature of phones having constant access to the internet, they give hackers a way in – constantly.

Be extra safe by using an offline crypto storage method like the Ledger Nano S or an old computer that isn’t always connected to the internet. Check out my easy Ledger Nano S setup guide.

In any case, if you trust your phones security – The following is a list of apps available for IOS and Android.

Best IOS Wallet Apps for Storing Ripple XRP

Toast Wallet

Toast Wallet for IOS has 3.7-stars and 239 ratings, making it by far the best app in the App Store for storing XRP safely.

I personally use the Toast wallet and haven’t had any issues with it. If you need a simple wallet to safely store your XRP, Toast wallet is the app for you.

Send XRP to the Toast Wallet App

From the initial Toast Wallet screen, select your wallet or generate a new address. After selecting your wallet, you’ll find your XRP address at the top of the screen.

A destination tag isn’t required when sending to the Toast Wallet. However, if required, simply enter “0” (zero) – without quotes in the destination tag field. Your transaction will still go through.

Uphold

Uphold is a free IOS app for buying and storing cryptocurrency. With that being said, Uphold is a great app for you to store your XRP and even add to your position.

Uphold Fees

Uphold is free to set up an account and hold your funds. Funding your account via bank account, bitcoin, XRP or another Uphold account is free.

However, there is a 3.99% fee when using a Debit/Credit Card or China Union Pay to fund your account.

As for withdrawing funds, you will incur a flat $2.99 fee to move funds off of Uphold. This includes moving your XRP onto another wallet or exchange. In addition, you’ll be charged another flat $3.99 fee when withdrawing to a bank account.

Send XRP to the Uphold App

Start by opening the Uphold app and going to the My Cards tab at the bottom of the screen. Then, if you have an XRP card, select it from your list of cards. Otherwise, click the “+” symbol in the top right-hand corner to add a new XRP card.

For more information on using the Uphold app, visit my buy XRP quickly and easily guide. There I’ll show you how to create an XRP card on the Uphold app and fund it with a bank account.

Fees Charged by Wirex

Wirex is free to create an account and store your assets on their platform. However, their $1.50 maintenance fee may deter you.
