How Quppy brings together centralized and decentralized solution for a unique financial experience of every user

What is a hot crypto wallet?

A hot or so-called custodial wallet is a crypto wallet where the private keys are controlled by a third party. It is comparable to how traditional banks control funds of their clients kept on their personal accounts. The custodial wallet structure essentially follows the same rules. The same mechanism of funds and personal information control is applied to the custodial exchanges and exchange services that can be connected to crypto wallets or exist independently. Among the most popular custodial exchanges are Binance, Coinbase, Kucoin, Gemini, Okex, Bitstamp,, etc. These exchange services are also close to traditional banking services flows as these exchanges rely on cryptocurrency funds of their customers while providing these funds to crypto loan services fully controlled by smart contracts.

Thus, custodial wallets functionality implies third party controlling user private keys as far as user funds. This means that the custodial system is much more vulnerable to hacker attacks as all the access data and the transactional volume are stored in one place and become easier to get stolen.

Among the custodial wallet advantages are, of course, easy and fast access to services provided, user-friendly interface, one-place storage, and instant transaction completion. Most of the custodial services offer their clients low fees as far as a large number of tokens and currencies support together with a possibility to process the funds outside the initial service.
