Wallets

The integration of a wallet with Kusama allows for simple and easy access to private keys and signing transactions. Below are some wallets that support Polkadot along with their development statuses.

Polkadot support can provide assistance with issues related to Polkadot-JS, the Polkadot{.js} extension, or Parity Signer. For other wallet software, you should contact the developers of that wallet.

Treasury Funded Wallets

These are wallets which have been supported by either the Polkadot or Kusama Treasury via Treasury Proposal. Links in the Proposals section go to the Polkassembly post where the Treasury Proposal was discussed.

Web3 Technologies Foundation does not endorse these wallets

These third-party wallets have been funded by the community through either the Polkadot or Kusama Treasury. You should use your own due diligence in researching and using them. The official Polkadot Support cannot provide support for issues with these wallets or other non-Parity developed wallets.

*Note about Nova wallet

There's another Nova wallet that is unrelated to the Polkadot ecosystem. Users are advised to ensure that they use the correct Nova wallet by downloading the app from their official website: https://novawallet.io/. Before creating or restoring accounts , it is wise to double-check the wallet website URLs through official channels (most projects have it listed on their official social media handles).

**Tip from the Treasury

This third-party wallet was not funded by a Treasury Proposal and instead received a tip from the Treasury. Unlike a Treasury Proposal, tipping is a separate system that the council members individually participate in to collectively decide on the value of the tip. Learn more about tipping on the Treasury Page.

Encryption Enhancement

Some newly generated JSON account files cannot be imported (restored) into older wallet software. This is due to an enhanced encryption method, which is also noticeable in a slight delay when encrypting/decrypting your wallet. If you are unable to load a JSON file, please ensure that you are using the latest version of the wallet software. If you are still unable to load it, ensure that the wallet software is using the latest version of the Polkadot API.
