The Stacks Wallet for Stacks 2.0 empowers users to send and receive Stacks (STX) tokens as well as participate in Stacking, a novel way to lock up STX locking in exchange for the opportunity to earn Bitcoin rewards.
The wallet supports the generation and entry of 24-word Secret Keys as well as access with a Ledger S or Ledger X device.
