What is a Multi-Chain Wallet
A Multi-Chain wallet is a digital wallet that is able to integrate multiple addresses on many different blockchains.
The Multi-Chain wallet allows you to store, send & receive numerous coins/tokens on different blockchains in one single wallet, with only one single Passphrase. This wallet is managed by you and only you have access to its content.
A Multi-Chain wallet has 2 crucial information:
- Passphrase: The Multi-Chain wallet doesn’t have a Private Key and is managed by only one Passphrase.
- Wallet address: Every small single-chain wallet in a Multi-Chain wallet has a different address. However, the wallet addresses on Ethereum, BSC, HECO Chain, Polygon, Fantom are the same. In version 10.2, Coin98 Wallet will allow users to create other EVM Wallets having the same address as the Ethereum wallet.

For example, the gas fee on Ethereum is paid with ETH, BNB on Binance Smart Chain, MATIC on Polygon, etc.
