About Guarda Wallet

Foundation 2017

Products Crypto wallets

Guarda Wallet, a multi-currency digital platform for storing, transferring and managing cryptocurrencies, was created by a group of enthusiasts led by Paul Sokolov in 2017. With four years of experience in the crypto industry, Sokolov began thinking about creating an easy-to-use, and most importantly, secure cryptocurrency storage platform. At that time, there were only difficult-to-use crypto accounts with the mandatory passing of various KYC-type checks. Sokolov's idea was to keep maximum privacy and make a simple product that would be suitable for both beginners and experienced players of the crypto industry. Guarda Wallet has become one of the pioneers of the hot crypto wallet industry.

To this day, the company adheres to the concept of complete privacy and does not store keys or other sensitive user information. The Guarda Wallet platform has come a long way from a simple wallet capable of storing and transferring one type of cryptocurrency to a multifunctional platform with support for multiple blockchain networks and usage platforms, as well as various features, such as token generation.

Shielded Guarda wallet

Guarda started its collaboration with the Zcash Foundation after receiving a grant from this organization. In 2019, the developers created a new non-custodial open-source wallet called Shielded Guarda. Its main feature is that it supports both t- and z-addresses.

Shielded Guarda is a single-currency solution, becoming the very first mobile wallet fully dedicated to private ZEC transactions.

Token Generator

A new feature from the Guarda developers that allows anyone to create fully secure ERC-20 tokens. Creation takes only three simple steps. New tokens are guaranteed to be supported by Guarda Wallet.

Guarda Wallet security features

Guarda Wallet is a hot wallet, but the developers have tried to make it as secure as possible. They have offered non-custodial storage, which means the user's important data is not stored with third-party providers, but only with the user themselves. Thus, even if the servers are hacked, the funds will be safe. In addition, the wallet securely encrypts backups and stores it on the user's device. There is a TouchID and FaceID login to access the mobile app.

As a company, Guarda is a fully legitimate organization that complies with EU law and is licensed by the FIU.

Nevertheless, the complete security of this wallet cannot be claimed. Earlier cases of hacking have been reported.

Supported Coins

Guarda Wallet supports more than 40 blockchain networks, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as about 400,000 different crypto coins. The list of coins offered is constantly expanding: the developers follow the latest market trends.

EU citizens have the opportunity to pay with a Guarda Visa card.
