In addition to choosing secure cryptocurrency wallets, you might want to check for other features including ease of use, mobile support, availability of customer support, and the number of digital assets supported, among others.
Not all cryptocurrency wallets are multi-asset meaning supporting more than one cryptocurrency. Yet you might desire multi-currency support feature on your cryptocurrency wallet if you hold or planning to hold and trade or exchange more than one crypto asset from a single platform. Having a multi-asset cryptocurrency wallet simplifies your work and makes it much easier to manage the assets.
So here is a list of top and popular cryptocurrency wallets that support multiple assets. A number of wallets in this list also do have in-app exchange features.
Coinomi supports 507 different digital tokens although it is actually thousands of assets since you can add any ERC20 token yourself. It also supports 125 blockchains, the largest number in the market. Besides, this crypto wallet used to be available only for mobile devices (iOS and Android) but now there is a desktop version coming in Q3 of this year. The desktop will be available for Windows, MacOS and Linux. Of course, hardware wallets are considered more secure for large number of cryptocurrencies.
Coinomi integrates with ShapeShift and therefore has an in-built exchange or the feature that allows you to convert between altcoins instantly from within the app.
Exodus supports more than 90 altcoins and digital assets, and like Coinomi, integrates with ShapeShift, making it a good crypto wallet for those looking for in-built exchange features to do crypto swaps. It can also be used as a portfolio management tool just like Coinomi.
The crypto portfolio management features include live charts to help track your portfolio in real time as market conditions keep changing. It also packs alert for real time actions, chat, and other features.
Exodus is only Windows, Linux, Mac-supported and there is no mobile support yet, although that might come in future according to their website. Still many people prefer to handle crypto transactions on desktops.

Cryptonator, like most of the multi-asset wallets in this list, supports multiple crypto assets (more than 20 assets) and has in-built cryptocurrency exchange and works on laptop, desktop or mobile devices alike. It is popular among a number of users because it supports a number of altcoins not supported by by the mainstream wallets and exchanges.
