    Bitcoin Core

    Bitcoin Core news

    Wallet type: local

    Platform: Windows, MacOS, Linux, Ubuntu

    It is the official crypto-wallet from the Bitcoin Foundation developers. It is considered to be one of the most secure services, since all the crypto currency is stored locally, and the probability that hackers will reach it is extremely small.

    The main disadvantage is in the installation process. Since the crypto-wallet requires synchronisation with the entire bitcoin blockchain, this process takes a lot of time and space (more than 211 Gb).

    Therefore, if you own quite a large enough amount in bitcoins - in order to store them on a hot wallet, and at the same time you don’t want to pay for a hardware purse - Bitcoin Core is the most favourable solution for you.

    Platform: Windows, MacOS и Linux

    This crypto-wallet is created by Ethereum developers. Up until 2016, it looked like a command line and did not have a interfase. However, now it can be used not only by programmers, but also by ordinary users.

    To get started with this software, you need to download it from GitHub, which takes just a few minutes. However, be prepared for the fact, that the process of downloading the whole blockchain can drag on for quite some time - up to several days. In this case, it is necessary that the computer has enough space, and that it is on.

    After that it is necessary to register and refill your account. Since empty purses are eventually excluded from the system. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a backup copy of your wallet on a CD or USB flash drive.

    Wallet type: Local (Desktop)

    Platform: Mac OSX, Linux, Windows

    This multi-currency wallet appeared relatively recently - in 2016. It is installed as a program on your computer, and it doesn’t take loads of space - just about 75 Mb.

    Exodus supports 90 crypto currencies and allows you to convert your coins right inside the wallet. However, you would have to pay a commission for convertation. Another drawback is that Exodus does not have a mobile application and a Web version.

    The project itself was developed on the basis of the BankToTheFuture crowd platform, from which Bitfinex, Bitstamp and Kraken had started. From our experience, this fund chooses reliable projects, so the wallet itself is considered to be quite safe.

    Among the shortcomings of crypto-software - the service charges commission for each transfer.
