How to create Avalanche wallet

Avalanche (AVAX) is a layer one blockchain aiming to rival Ethereum in smart contract scalability. It consists of three blockchains: X-Chain, C-Chain, and P-Chain, each with unique purposes. Coin Wallet supports only C-Chain. The platform is also working on improving interoperability between its ecosystem and Ethereum through bridges.


To fully own Avalanche, first create a new Coin Wallet account. Coin Wallet is a software wallet that only keeps your private key on your device. It allows you to buy, sell, exchange, receive, and store AVAX.
