A wallet is a place where you can store your digital currencies. All wallets have a public key (an address) and a private key.
Your private key can access the wallet and you must therefore never share it with others or lose track of it. Your public key, or address, can be compared to an account number. If a person wants to send crypto to you, they will have to send it to your address.
At Firi, we ensure a safe and easy storage of your funds, and we take care of all the technical aspects of securing and storing your assets. This means, quite simply, that the only thing you need to access your funds is either your phone with Vipps or the username and password for your Firi account, as well as BankID.
In this way you don't have to worry about any private keys, but are still assigned public keys in order for you to receive cryptocurrency from other wallets.
