Another Great Way to Store Your Polkadot

Whether you are an active P2P vendor, casual cryptocurrency user, or just looking for someone to store your Polkadot securely, you can now do so with the non-custodial wallets provided by LocalCoinSwap. Unlike most other exchanges that offer Polkadot wallets, the DOT wallet generated alongside your LocalCoinSwap account only allows you access to your funds.

Having access to your funds at any time is excellent, but having the power to control precisely what you do with your funds is essential as well. Due to the non-custodial nature of the Polkadot web wallet provided with your account, even the team at LocalCoinSwap has no power to seize or otherwise control your DOT. You can even export your private key for further peace of mind and to have the ability to import that into another wallet should you so choose.
