UTXO
Since cryptocurrency is, by definition, digital, UTXO's function the same way dollar bills do with fiat currency. If your physical wallet carries banknotes, then your digital wallet carries UTXOs.
The Beam wallet minimizes the output value you receive by automatically selecting the UTXO for each transaction. You will not be able to send or spend your UTXOs until the transaction is complete.

UTXO in Your Beam Wallet

An unspent transaction output (UTXO) represents the amount of cryptocurrency left after each transaction which then records the input for new transactions. The remaining outputs in your Beam wallet can be found in the UTXO
tab.
