Title: What do you think about the Copay BTC Wallet?
Post by: japerry on January 11, 2016, 11:58:08 AM
I'm looking for a single wallet solution to use on my PC as well as my Android devices. So far the one that seems to fit the requirements fully is the Copay wallet. But so far my web searching is returning very little about the Copay wallet and what people think about ease-of-use, security, privacy, etc.
I'd appreciate it if anyone can offer and thoughts, comments, experiences with this wallet. BTW I also have a Ledger Nano and plan to use it with a multi-sig wallet using Copay. Any thoughts in this area would be welcome too.
Thanks!

It's a very good wallet. Good UI, easy to use.

lack of features and had some backup/import problems with cross platforms(windows/android) in earlier versions..

i'd suggest using mycelium on android and import the xprv key into electrum on your pc

Copay on Android does not support hardware wallets, just checked. Too bad. You would have to use your Nano with a different wallet, one that supports Ledger on your phone.

Actually the fact that it works with the Nano on my laptop is fine. I just carry a small amount of BTC on my phone. Multi-Sig works well in that regard. Thanks everyone!

I just use it on my phone because it is the only one which is available for Windows Phone and I love it. It uses a seed now which can be backed up quite easily but I don't know if it can be used to restore the wallet with any other client. Which is why I just keep a small amount of coins there, for when I am away from the computer.

It also has a Paper wallet sweep feature, which is great. But the things which are missing is, send to many, manual fee and a way to import the wallet in other clients.
