To invest in cryptocurrency today you need to have multiple wallets because some wallets are created for a particular type of token. For instance Dapps built on the Ethereum and Neo blockchain cannot be stored in the same wallet.
Managing multiple wallets is a challenge to less tech savvy persons and the hassle maybe one reason for slow adoption, hence the need for a universal wallet is great.
The Ethos universal wallet is coming to the Ethos platform and to encourage persons to use the wallet, they are giving all who pre-register for the wallet free airdrops.
According to the white paper, "the Universal Wallet will allow users to view, send and receive balances of any supported cryptocurrency. The wallet manager is entirely decentralized meaning that consumers have complete control over their private keys at all times and Ethos can’t access funds without direct user authorization."
Based on the emails, I've received from them, the following airdrop partners have been announced so far:
PACcoin - $0.004703 USD
Ravencoin - $0.044165 USD
Follow coin - Not available
Bodhi Network - $1.04 USD
