What is the difference between a portfolio and a wallet?

Multiple Portfolios Each portfolio is derived from the same 12-word secret recovery 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 phrase.
Multiple Wallets Each wallet has its own unique 12-word phrase and acts as a completely separate wallet.

Why would you want to have multiple portfolios?

We are commonly asked about the ability to have multiple Exodus wallets on one device to help separate transactions and history. Having multiple Exodus portfolios on one computer can be useful if you have a personal and business portfolio, or any other reason you can think of. There are many reasons!

By having multiple portfolios, you can keep transactions and balances separate just like having multiple bank accounts.


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 phrase.

Each portfolio has its own unique derivation from the original 12-word 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 phrase, you need to make sure you keep your 12-word phrase extra safe!
