An explanation of the key terms used in the Coinshift docs.

Browser Wallet

A cryptocurrency wallet that is accessible through a web browser or mobile app.


An alias for any wallet or smart contract address. Instead of having to recall what an address is associated with, you can create a contact that is stored in an address book on Coinshift. This reduced the risk of erroneously sending funds to the wrong address.

Hardware Wallet

A cryptocurrency wallet that stores a private key in offline mode.


A field that helps you classify a transaction and can be used to define the accounting treatment.

On-chain transactions

Transactions verified by network validators and recorded on the blockchain.


An organisation on Coinshift represents a project, DAO, or crypto-native organisation.
