Through user feedback, imToken has learned that some users are worried the assets they hold on exchanges might be frozen or face uncertainty risks. In this regard, imToken advises cryptocurrency users to manage their assets using decentralized wallets. Compared to the custodial services of centralized exchanges, using a decentralized wallet ensures that users can always manage their assets independently, without worrying about being frozen or restricted by a third party, and there is no "agency risk" arising from regulation and centralized institutions.
The only requirement is that wallet users need to understand the basic knowledge of blockchain and have good security awareness. On this basis, decentralized wallets become the first choice for blockchain users to securely manage their assets, allowing them to have full control over their digital assets.
As the world's leading blockchain decentralized wallet, imToken has provided stable services to 15 million blockchain users over the past seven years, with the scale of assets managed independently via imToken surpassing 50 billion US dollars. To date, imToken has never experienced any incident of government authorities confiscating or freezing users' assets.
