🪄 Magically Track all EVM-compatible Wallet 🪄

Tracking wallets is an incredibly popular feature on Frontier Wallet. Many of us use it to track the activity on our older wallets and even for some good old-fashioned whale spotting. With the multi-chain ecosystem is growing as fast as it is today, it isn’t surprising to see assets move between native wallets across many blockchains. We see this, and realized you would definitely enjoy an easier way to track EVM-compatible wallets instantly.

You can now enter any EVM wallet address in the track wallet section and easily track all the EVM-compatible wallets associated with the address across any EVM chain supported by Frontier.

This includes support for all ENS Domains (.eth) and NFT Domains from Unstoppable Domains (.crypto, .wallet, .nft, and more). Once you enter a valid address, Frontier Wallet will automatically fetch all details from that address. This of course includes token balances, positions, and NFTs as well as getting notifications on any activity on the wallet.

Try it now, just head into ‘Add Wallet’ → ‘Track any wallet’ → enter the address and you’re all set!

🤳 Experience the XDC Network 🤳

XDC Network is one of the most versatile and unique blockchain projects out there. Few weeks back we were pleased to announce support for the XDC Chain on Frontier Wallet’s iOS app. The community waited patiently for the Android release to drop, and finally it has arrived.

The new implementation on Android is even better than you would have experienced on the iOS version. It is neatly integrated within the wallet switcher and is automatically added for all users on Android using the latest version of the app. You can of course track wallets, import your existing wallet, or even create a new wallet from scratch.

Managing your portfolio, and transacting with tokens including the native $XDC tokens is now available in Frontier Wallet for all users.
