If you're wondering, "What is the best wallet for DOT?" You will be happy to hear that there are several teams developing wallets for DOT tokens at the moment, including cold storage (offline) options. 

Some are already live, others are still being built. Polkadot is still a very young network and any of your favorite wallet providers can choose to list and support DOT. 

The following wallets have been developed by Parity and you can contact us through the buttons below if you need any support: 

No matter if you use an external device or not, we highly recommend that you add your accounts through the browser extension, as it has many advantages:

  1. It provides better security than using the Polkadot-JS UI directly
  2. Your browser won't "forget" your accounts if its cookies are cleared
  3. The extension recognizes any known Polkadot (and not only) scams and alerts you when you access a phishing site. This will help you protect yourself and your funds.

Note: You will still need to use the Polkadot-JS UI to manage your accounts.

Hardware Wallets

If you are looking for a hardware solution, the Ledger wallet supports Polkadot.

Another secure option is to install Parity Signer on an old smartphone, reset to factory defaults, which you'll keep in airplane mode. This also works as offline (cold) storage and is explained in the video above.
