With so many volatile movements in today's economy, many people are looking to cryptocurrency as a way to hedge their bets as a store of value.
It's become so popular that even big institutional investors like banks and hedge funds have begun moving some of their money into Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Because of all the buzz, there's always a new crypto platform with new features coming up.
Trust Wallet has become popular inside this new wave due to its speedy purchasing and security features.
However, users wanting 2-factor authentication will find Trust Wallet lacking, and might be looking for a switch.
Crypto.com has become an attractive option for those looking to move out of Trust Wallet.
They offer 2FA, a crypto debit card, crypto interest accounts, over 250 tradable tokens, and are one of the largest trading platforms out there.
Sometimes switching between crypto platforms can seem... cryptic, but today we're going to help you make your move step-by-step!

Individual cryptos also have unique wallet addresses as well.
While you'll use a particular app, web platform, or cold storage as your crypto wallet, inside of that account's wallet will be individual wallets for each coin the account can store.
Think of it like having a pocket where you keep your spare change, in addition to holding bills inside your wallet in real life. But, each different pocket has its own specific address.
So, if you wanted to send Bitcoin to Crypto.com, you'd need to make sure you're sending it to your Crypto.com Bitcoin wallet, for example.
If you send a crypto to a wallet that doesn't match, you could lose all the coins you sent forever, so it's really important to send it to the right wallet.
