MoonPay is a cryptocurrency platform through which one can buy or sell cryptocurrencies in exchange for fiat currency.
The platform enables the purchase of cryptocurrency similar to how one would shop stuff in online stores.
You can pay for the cryptocurrencies through your credit/debit cards, Google Pay or Apple Pay.
The purchased cryptocurrencies can be stored in a wallet.
Trust Wallet is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency wallet that allows you to store crypto coins in it, and also stake them in return for interest.
Originally, the Trust Wallet was designed just to hold the ERC20 and ERC223 tokens but now it is compatible with many cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
Trust Wallet is completely free to use.
