What is the difference?

Multiple Portfolios Each portfolio is derived from the same 12-word phrase and each derivation is its own portfolio with its own addresses. Think of it like different containers for your cryptos all linked to the same 12-word secret phrase.
Multiple Wallets Each wallet has its own unique 12-word secret phrase and acts as a completely separate wallet.

What happens when I create another portfolio?

When you create another portfolio inside your Exodus wallet, what actually happens is your Exodus wallet derives another portfolio from the same 12-word secret phrase.

Each portfolio has its own unique derivation from the original 12-word secret phrase. The first derivation is your first portfolio, the second derivation is the second portfolio you create etc.

Since all of your portfolios are still linked with the same 12-word secret phrase, you need to make sure you keep your 12-word phrase extra safe!
