Сryptocurrency wallet Bitcoin Core - news and events
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.
