Users can exchange their fiat currency for cryptocurrency and can also conduct crypto-to-crypto conversion. The wallet code is open source and can be accessed on GitHub. User data is encrypted and cannot be accessed by Edge or third parties.

Users can enable two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security. Users can also add biometric touch and face recognition for further layers of security. The wallet has good reviews from users online and has been noted to be easy to use. The focus of the development team is to make it simple to use while maintaining a good level of security.
