After you've purchased crypto, the next step is to find the best way to secure it.

Wallets are often considered to offer some of the best security for your cryptocurrency. While you have the option of keeping your assets on Newton, Newton is primarily a low-fee cryptocurrency trading platform, and not a wallet service.
