Bitcoin Core is the easiest wallet to start out with. It stores all your Bitcoins on your local computer. There are also wallet apps available to download to from your phone. If you're just starting out, I would recommend joining a signature campaign only of you're going to be constructive and on topic.

Signatures? How about learning a skill... I don't care either way. Everybody has to make a living somehow.

I dont agree with the Bitcoin Core as easiest wallet to start out with, because you need to sync (few days for single core CPU) and download around 60 GB. Much easier is Electrum where you dont need to download and sync full blockchain.


Anyone can anwser?

I guess blockchain info, but it is online wallet.

Threads and concerns like that had already discussed here in this forum many times.

You can take a read in some of the discussions about that here; popular, best wallet, safest etc.

These days there is an unexpected newbies enthusiasm for Xapo, because  it is very popular between faucets users, although I can realize that it is not so reliable for most old bitcoiners...  Grin

OP, go here: Choose your wallet - Bitcoin and you can choose the wallet according to your need. There is no such thing as a popular wallet, each wallet has it's own usage. If you want to have the whole blockchain then download and use Bitcoin Core, if you want a desktop wallet but don't want to download the whole blockchain, then go for something like Electrum (This is the one I would recommend). And Mycelium is a good wallet for the mobile.

I won't recommend you using an online wallet such as blockchain.info because your funds are not safe there imho. Just visit the link above and decide on your own.

are there still problem in downloading 60gb in 2016? i don't think so, if he live in the usa or any advance country, you can do it in few hours, then you do a backup of the blockchain so you don't need to do it again the next time(at least it will sync faster)

newbie can use multibit for small amount, but for greater amount i prefer core, for mobile the popular is Mycelium

Multibit is good for those who are holding multiple accounts but I prefer to go for localbitcoins wallet as it is very much safe and can be helpful when you need to convert your btc to your local currency so I would prefer localbitcoins wallet, multibit is also safe but if you want to convert it to fiat you need to transfer your btc to localbitcoins.

For me the best wallet is Coinbase. https://www.coinbase.com/. Has about 2.8 million users. Is a web wallet so can enetr on it in every part of the world with a computer, a smartphone and a connection in internet. pay all the fees of every send of bitcoin which in other wallets are paid by the user (by you). Have any kind of fee having bitcoin there. 98% of customer funds are stored offline. So every hacker will find only a few satoshi if will be able to hack this wallet. 2 step verification in several modes. I have chosen Authy which allow me to have (produce) in my smartphone (or in my desktop with password) the code which allow me to enter on it. So no one cannot enter except me. Only me have my smartphone. And have no fear that the code don't arrive in my cell if it will be used the 2 step authentication with the send of the code in it from another external machine (device).

At least but not the less important, Coinbase is insured against employee theft and hacking in an amount that exceeds the average value of online bitcoin it holds at any given time. Specifically, Coinbase's insurance policy would respond in the event that bitcoin stored in Coinbase was lost or stolen as a result of a breach of our physical security, cyber security, or as a result of employee theft. Coinbase has held this insurance since November 2013 with highly rated carriers (S&P rating of A+ or A.M. Best Rating of A XV or higher).

Within this wallet can be bought and sell bitcoins with the best prices in the market if you live in one of the 32 countries in which is offered such kind of service. these countries are listed in website.

I think blockchain.info is the most popular, even though it's not that safe.
And for the old users, I think Bitcoin Core is more popular.

And disk storage. Unfortunately, disk space is still a huge huge concern right now, with the CPU verification. USA doesn't have particularly fast internet and the CPU is almost always the bottleneck. Multibit or Electrum is secure enough and you only need a backup.

Bitcoin Core does potentially have over 10k users but most are just for the sole purpose of running a node. I would say Blockchain.info to be one of the most popular ones since it claims to have "good" security and have a high search ranking.

The most popular wallet ins't per se the best wallet. For me personally the best wallet is the Bitcoin Core client. I have been using the original client since the very beginning. One of the more important things of the wallet is that it allows me to run a full node.

have both xapo and coinbase and like both but like coinbase more their interface feel more "Pc/android" and xapo more like something apple would have come up with. just my opinion. other than that they are equal i guess.

Not sure which is most popular in the world but I prefer Coinbase and Xapo.  Coinbase seems very secure and they have good customer service when needed.  I also like their vault with the 48 hour waiting period and double confirmations to pull from vault.  Xapo is good for faucets and microtransactions - although customer support at Coinbase said there is no charge to receive micro-transactions.  I have used both wallets for awhile now and have had no issues.

I love Bitcoin

It is definately blockchain.info founded and backed up by well known and trusty personal. Don't put your coin in new online wallet as they can steal your coin without your permission. Blockchain have almost every feature required for bitcoin.

Not really. Blockchain.info have many issues back then. There is too many problem with them in the last month.

Also blockchain.info is not on the list of wallet recomendation in bitcoin.org. Check here https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

What issues did they have during the last month? ..... The OP was asking what the most popular bitcoin wallet was, and I kind of agree with some of the posters on here that

Blockchain.info has to be the most popular. If you want a service without hassles and no huge downloads, you have to consider this option. They have had a couple of issues

with the random number generator and also some issues on the Android OS { That flaw affected the generation of private keys for bitcoin addresses. } but it was quickly spotted

and rectified.  Wink ... All this was back in 2013.
