A crypto wallet is an application or hardware device that allows individuals to store and retrieve digital items, like cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
A wallet address is a unique "public key". It corresponds to the address that will hold your digital assets (cryptocurrencies or NFTs).
A mnemonic, also called "seed phrase" or "secret recovery phrase" is a list of words that can be used to recover your crypto. On Algorand, a seed phrase is made of 25 words.
When you setup your wallet, memorize your seed phrase and back it up somewhere safe.
