Learn about wallets on Wyre

Wallets are used to hold cryptocurrency funds on the Wyre platform. White label wallets are spun up on demand via the [Create Wallet](doc:create-wallet) endpoint. [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "1. Creating a Wallet" } [/block] The [Create Wallet](doc:create-wallet) endpoint has a `name` parameter which allows you to attach a unique identifier to the wallet, perhaps a user id generated by your app/platform. The `type` parameter allows you to determine the type of wallet you are creating, DEFAULT, ENTERPRISE or SAVINGS. When creating a wallet for SAVINGS, please follow the instructions: [Creating Savings Accounts](doc:creating-crypto-savings-accounts). Wallets are attached to your to your Wyre business account at the platform level and you operate them on behalf of your users via the [Transfers](doc:create-transfer) endpoint. [block:api-header] { "title": "2. Transferring Between Wallets" } [/block] The [Transfers](doc:create-transfer) endpoint facilitates movement of cryptocurrency between Wyre wallets and crypto wallets external to Wyre.
