Desktop wallets are the most popular wallet type and are installed on a desktop computer or laptop. These wallets connect directly to a cryptocurrency’s client and act as an interface to see all of your transactions.
A mobile wallet relies on smartphones and an app to connect to the client.
A cold wallet is often thought to be the most secure as it stores crypto assets offline thus cutting off any potential access to it until you need to use your crypto again. In that case you would have to move funds from cold storage wallet into your active wallet account.
Your Nebeus wallet is available on both desktop and mobile devices to provide you transaction flexibility. Nebeus also has cold wallet (vault) storage for customers who don’t need immediate access to their funds and would like an added level of security for safe keeping.
