The first thing most WAX users do, is create a WAX Cloud Wallet. This is done by simply logging into with a Google account. This will provide the user with a .wam address (33d4q.wam) for example} The convenience doesn't come without a cost. That cost would be, you do not have the private keys to a .wam wallet. Losing access to a Google account used to log-in and create the .wam wax wallet will leave a user at a loss of the assets inside the wallet. Access can be lost many way, from misplacing 2FA to forgetting a password, even being a target of hackers. These are the reasons a WAX use would maybe want to start with the easy route of, creating a WAX.wam wallet by just logging in with a Google account. It’s just like logging into Facebook or YouTube, in that way. But, with a substantial WAX collection, a user might be motivated to go through the less easy route and, ensure they have a WAX wallet, in which, they do possess the private keys for. Untethering their assets from their Google accounts, and obtaining the ability to backup the NFTs collected. A benefit to creating a WAX wallet with keys, is you can assign a username to the public address (kennethbosak) for example}, cool aye?
