A phantom wallet works in a similar way as a MetaMask extension does. Using a phantom wallet, you can interact with the Solana blockchain and trade or swap SOL on the go. The Phantom wallet service is available in the form of a browser extension that can be added to some major browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Brave, and Edge.
Phantom is a non-custodial blockchain wallet for accessing decentralized applications on the Solana blockchain. In addition to storing and managing tokens, it also allows access to decentralized lending, liquidity, DEX, and other applications, which makes it special.
