Community Tools

Here is a list of tools that the Aion community has built. While some of the internal developers at the Aion Foundation help out with these projects, none of the tools listed on this page are officially supported by the Aion Foundation. Each tool has it's own support and installation processes. Check out the GitHub pages of each project to learn more about what's going on. For more general help, you can post any issues or questions on StackOverflow, using the AION tag.

Wallets allow you to store your native Aion tokens and other cryptocurrencies locally on your machine, sometimes called offline wallets. Other wallets allow you to keep your tokens online and are always accessible. However, these are generally seen as slightly less secure than locally stored wallets. Finally, there are mobile wallets that help bridge the gap between security and usability.
