Core is a free, non-custodial browser extension for the Avalanche ecosystem.

Core is more than a wallet. It is a curated operating system combining Wallet, Explorer, Bridge, Subnets, dApps, and more.

The Core browser extension is currently only officially supported on Chrome. To download Core, please visit https://extension.core.app. For tutorials, support articles, and videos on how to use Core, please visit the Core extension collection.

Feature highlights:

  • Hardware wallet enabled: Compatible with industry-leading Ledger hardware wallet and Keystone.

  • Portfolio, Collectible, and DeFi pages: Dashboards for seeing all fungible, non-fungible, and DeFi tokens in a unified display without having to add token addresses or switch networks.

  • Bridge: Native ERC-20 bridging and swapping BTC to BTC.b using the trusted technology powering the Avalanche Bridge.

  • Swap: Swap between hundreds of tokens on the Avalanche network directly from the wallet (powered by ParaSwap).

  • Buy: Buy AVAX directly from the wallet with MoonPay and Coinbase Pay.

  • Address Book: Create contacts to save frequently used addresses.
