One of the first things you need to know about any cryptocurrency that you own, is what wallet you can store it in. Fusion uses ECDSA type signatures (the same as Ethereum), which means that if you have an address on Ethereum you will also own this address on Fusion, but you might need to use a different wallet than you're used to for access as not every wallet will support the Fusion network.
Right now these options are available:
Chainge - Chainge is an advanced application and wallet that supports a large number of networks, but primarily operates on Fusion and also routes cross-chain transactions through Fusion. Unlike many other crypto wallets Chainge doesn't require that every single transaction is signed. Instead when signing, you typically perform a larger number of transactions which together represent the action you meant to perform. This fact allows more complex operations to be simplified in a manner where the user more effectively can perform the actions that they want to perform, whether that is moving assets cross-chain, trading, harvesting rewards, providing liquidity, writing options or setting up contracts. The span of the application is great and includes: an AMM DEX, a Futures DEX, Options DEX support for a great amount of assets on Fusion and many other chains and a way to seamlessly move between the chains called cross-chain roaming which is powered by Fusion DCRM. It also has completely unique features which allows the user to simply set up complex operations such as decentralized escrow and writing options. Currently Chainge only exists on mobile on both Android and iOS. Your phone number (not your phone) is a very central part of your Chainge account and identity. SMS sent to your phone number is important in activating Chainge on different devices where you wish to run it. It is also important to remember your chosen 6-digit passcode, as forgetting it may mean losing access. As a beginner to Chainge your private key will be unknown to you and everybody else. Custody is split with DCRM in a way where you hold part of it and part is held by Chainge servers. It is highly reccomended to as soon as you can change into "Expert mode" as this allows you to enter your own seed words into the app, allowing it to be a wallet you fully control yourself and a wallet that could be used in other applications as well. You can move not just assets between wallets with Chainge but also the future and options counterparts for each asset (though it's a bad idea to move futures, as they're tough to interact with in other wallets besides Chainge). Chainge also has plans to expand the use of its identity network where users can interact in a more social way with user names instead of crypto adresses. Read more about such elements here.
Chainge can't handle everything though. Here are some things for which Chainge can't be used:
1. Can't be combined with ledger or trezor
2. Can't be used with web-based or desktop apps (this is likely to become possible in the near future through wallet connect)
3. Doesn't support custom contracts, nor transactions of its own LP-tokens.
4. Doesn't support older formats like Fusion assets or FRC20 or the Quantum Swap market. It supports the FRC759 universal assets and almost all features are dervived from time-framing, but also AMM, EVM-type smart contracts and of course Fusion DCRM.
MetaMask - Though MetaMask is not a Fusion wallet as such, it's easy to customize to work on the Fusion blockchain. It's very useful in handling FRC20 tokens because any custom contract can be added to it and you can connect with it to AnySwap both in a browser and in your mobile phone. You can also use it for FRC758/FRC759s, though "futures" will appear as invisible/unusable. An important use case for MetaMask on Fusion currently is that you need to use it to be able to connect to freemoonfaucet.xyz where you can claim FREE, have a chance to win FMN. Metamask can also be used to access freemoon.exchange, app.moma.finance and v1.anyswap.exchange/dashboard To connect to Fusion with MetaMask you can set it up like this:
Network name: Fusion
RPC gateway: https://mainway.freemoon.xyz/gate
Chain ID: 32659
Block Explorer: https://fsnscan.com
Unless you are dealing with Time-locked assets, or the quantum swap market Metamask is also the best way for hardware wallet users to connect to Fusion. It is reccomended that hardware wallet users use the Metamask Firefox extention instead of the Chrome extention due to some odd changes lately by the chrome browser.
MyFusionWallet - Was the original wallet made for Fusion, but it hasn't received updates for a long time until just recently when support for Metamask was added. It's still the only place where you can have full access to all the native Fusion functions such as Time-locks, Quantum Swaps, USAN creation and Fusion asset creation and display. It can also be accessed through ledger and has all the basic access choices like whallet.net, but lacks support for Trezors (though you could connect with one indirectly, with some help from Metamask). The Quantum Swap market and time-locks may at times have some troubles when accessed through myfusionwallet, but as of now it remains the best point of access for the complete package. Another use case of myfusionwallet.com is its full display of decryption. When entering a seedphrase, you will get a full list of derived adresses, and you can customize the derivation path however you want. This is quite enlightening in understanding encryption. For people who are hunting for $FMN it also has a use case, as it can help them identify the adresses of all the bots in their bot army. It has been stated that myfusionwallet.com will continue to be looked after, so it's possible that it once again will become the primary web wallet for Fusion.
Essentials - Elastos Essentials is another wallet that supports Fusion and Chainge based FRC759 assets as well as the more basic formats FRC20/FRC758. Essentials also support many other networks and have integrated the Chainge Finance DEX aggregator and cross-chain movements. It is particularily useful as a web3 portal, because it's highly secure with a specific identity DID system where you are in control and it can connect with Wallet Connect which opens it up to a wide array of applications built in web3. It typically works particularily well with applications built on Elastos, but can also be used to connect to freemoon.exchange on Fusion. It can be a great compliment to Chainge as a Web3 wallet, if you want to do things built on other chains not accessible through Chainge.
whallet.net - Supports hardware wallets such as ledger and trezor and can also be accessed by all the regular ways such as private key, seed phrase or json-file. It also allows you to customize the derivation path for your seed phrase, so that regardless of what wallet you normally use and what path that wallet uses you could access your address with whallet. Whallet can also access a customized network, which means that it could theoretically be used for any blockchain. However, it, as of yet, lacks a way to add in custom tokens, making it mostly useful for FSN on Fusion as well as ANY which has pre-added support. It can also handle the native function of Fusion Time-locks, which work flawlessly with whallet. Whallet is actively maintained, but has not recieved any update for a very long time.
Arculus - Is a hardware wallet in the form of a metal card, which can be used together with your phone to approve transactions, by taping on it. Chainge supports this hardware wallet and has even issued such a card under its own brand.
Ledger - is one of the most commonly used hardware wallets. On Fusion it has had a history of not working so well in the recent year, but is now functioning again. If you're having trouble with it, you can usually get support in Fusion's telegram channel. Some common tips include, using the Firefox browser, enabling U2F in the browser and input settings of it so that Contract Data is set to YES and Data Display is set to NO (these settings can have different names, such as Blind Signing, in different updates of the Ethereum app software of your ledger). It also seems Windows generally works better than MacOS. Various issues can make it seem troublesome for you to connect to both myfusionwallet.com and whallet.net with your ledger. Trying to go through Metamask can sometimes be easier, and connect that way indirectly to myfusionwallet.
Dopamine - is a mobile application which has among other things a fusion wallet built into it and it also has NFTs that utilize the Fusion asset system under the hood. Dopamine is currently the only application making real use of the old Fusion asset system.
Other wallets - There exists other wallets, like, for example, TokenPocket and Mathwallet, which can be customized like Metamask to support Fusion and other networks.
Virtual Credit Card - Chainge has also issued a virtual creditcard, which can hold USDC and convert it to fiat upon making purchases. If you want to know more about this, please read about it in Chainge channels. There exists various limits to how it can be used.
On Other chains
FSN can also be held on other chains than Fusion. To learn more about this, and about how to add various assets running on Fusion to your wallet, please study the Chain Data page.
