Using a wallet to control transactions and review assets. Access to the wallet is included in the application (e.g. in the menu). Including the existing digital wallet is suitable for users when the targeted user group are experienced users, who in most cases already have their own digital wallet.

Support for variety of different wallets is also crucial.
