Talisman wallet: the best UX for the Paraverse

What is a Talisman wallet?

Talisman is a Web3-type self-custodial crypto wallet. Think about it like a Metamask for the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem, so you can easily receive, send and store crypto assets both fungible and (later on) also non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Characteristics

With Talisman, you can interact with Polkadot and Kusama and their parachains such as Acala, Astar, Parallel Finance, Bifrost and many more.

Availability

Browser extension

Talisman as a browser extension is now available for Chrome and also for the Firefox browsers.

Conclusion

Talisman wallet is a very vital alternative to Polkadot JS in terms of user experience. And UX is one of the main issues of the present state of Polkadot JS, so if you were embarrassed using Polkadot assets by the main wallet from Parity, now it's time for you to onboard your DOTs and KSMs once again, with Talisman.
