We have been using the mobile version of Atomic Wallet for more than two years now and we do not feel that we made the wrong choice to date.
The primary reason is that it is very light and can accommodate multiple cryptocurrencies in a single mobile app.
We have also used the Windows desktop version in the early days and knew at that time, that the developers need to to work a lot on those bugs.
Recently we again downloaded the Windows version and were quite satisfied with its performance. It did work smoothly without any issues and non of the past bugs were present in the recent version.
They and the team have made a lot of changes with this wallet but, one thing that I am not happy about is the fees. We still feel the team should work on it as it might become one of the main factors in the future to choose this wallet.
Another important issue is the dust, to date, they have not provided any solution to swap it with their native token which is $AWC.
Still, it is one of the reckoned multi-cryptocurrency wallets and in this article, we will again review it this year which is 2022.
Being a custody free cryptocurrency wallet, it now supports over 300 crypto assets. That is why it is also called a multi-cryptocurrency wallet. A simple registration is required but you do not need to go through a KYC verification.
It is available both for Android and iOS mobile versions and in this article, we will be discussing the android wallet.
First, you need to download the latest version of Atomic Wallet for Android by visiting the website. After installation, open the wallet. The first screen that you will see shown below :
Let’s go through this screen. At the top, on both sides, there are two links – New wallet & Restore. In the middle, you can see a heading asking you to Enter the password. This is where you need to enter your wallet password in order to unlock it.
To create your own wallet, go to the upper left corner and select New wallet. This will take you to a new screen where you will be prompted to create a wallet password.
You will be presented with your 12-word password when you have set up the password, it is recommended that you write down your 12-word password and store it somewhere secure.
In case you accidentally lose your mobile device or get it corrupted you will still then able to login to the wallet using those phrases. This is where the Restore from backup phrases comes into action.
You must input your wallet password here in order to open your wallet. The following screen will appear once you’ve logged in. The screen shows you all of the wallets that you have access to on the Atomic Wallet.
On this screen at the bottom you will see four tabs: Wallet, History, Exchange, Buy and Staking. Now, let’s go through these tabs one by one.
By default, this is the screen that you will see when you log in. It only displays the listed blockchain wallets, the quantity you are holding and their respective USD value according to the market.
This is the screen where you will see the details of each transaction you’ve made in your wallet. Complete detail about the amount credited, debited and staked cryptocurrency can be found here.
One of the best features of the Atomic Wallet is the Exchange tab. If we did not mention this earlier in this post. This is where you can swap your coins by paying a transaction fee.
By default, the wallet either displays Bitcoin to Ethereum. We changed it to Bitcoin to USDT on TRX blockchain as an example here.
Both Coins and tokens that have a big market cap are listed. You can check the list either by selecting when you tap on any of the swapping cryptocurrencies.
The charge for Exchange is not that nominal. After you have decided which coin you would like to exchange, you need to click on the EXCHANGE button and it will be done in real-time.
You can now Buy Crypto on the Atomic wallet app using your visa credit/debit card. The minimum amount for purchase has been set to $50. You can but BTC, ETH, XRP, BNB, LTC, BCH, XLM, TRX, and ATOM.
At the moment Atomic wallet supports the following cryptocurrencies for staking.
Many more cryptocurrencies will be added in the future.
The setting icon can be seen in the top right-hand corner of the wallet when you select the wallet tab.
Let’s go through the different features and subfeatures one by one on that screen. We will first start with the main features which are listed below.
