How do I use the Portal Wallet?
The Portal Wallet is a dApp wallet that allows you to use your existing Ethereum addresses and wallets to receive and send Nervos CKB. The Portal Wallet (PW) supports the following wallets:
For the purposes of this post, I downloaded the Opera browser on my iPhone and setup an Ethereum Wallet since Opera supports Cryptocurrency wallets built/in. Once I had my Ethereum address, I typed ckb.pw in the Opera brower and the following appeared:

Click Allow to link the Portal Wallet to the Ethereum Address you configured.

The Portal Wallet is great alternative to the Neuron Wallet. I like the Portal wallet because it is so portable and I can use it from my mobile phone. In addition, it doesn't require you to sync the Mainnet Node and works with a variety of wallets. I encourage you to check it out or see my previous posts.
I'm new to Nervos Network :) and currently staking my bag on Imtoken Mobile Wallet with Portal dApp - does it auto compound? Or do I have to settle and deposit it again after 28 days to compound the staking interests?
I haven't picked a wallet to stake in yet but I've seen Neuron recommended a few times. Is that different than the portal wallet? Does staking earn you more CKB?
