What is a wallet?

Wallets allow you to hold, send, and receive digital assets securely on different blockchains. Every wallet has a public address. Like your mailing address, your public wallet address tells others where to send assets to you. Your public address is safe to share with others. 

Every wallet also has a private key. Like your house key, your private key lets you send and spend the assets in your wallet. Your private key should never be shared, and Republic will never ask you for it.
