A smart wallet is an Ethereum wallet managed by a smart contract instead of a private key. It offers advanced features such as multi-sig transactions, daily transfer limits, emergency account freezing, and more secure account recovery. Funds in smart wallets are accessed and controlled through smart contract code, which allows almost unlimited functionality and gives users more control over their assets.
