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.
Multibit, Electrum don't need huge space nor bandwidth either. SPV clients are light and secure. Blockchain.info has a high ranking on search engines due to their SEO and afterall, PayPal and other payment processors uses username and password. People would likely be going this route.

There was a huge security flaw that costed users their private keys[1] and a random.org change that resulted in the same private key generated over and over again[2].

Bitcoin Core is the easiest wallet to start out with. It stores all your Bitcoins on your local computer.

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.

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


For most, downloading 60 GB is not a problem at all, but for few with crappy connection like paying per MB it might be issue, thats why my warning. Also it is reasonable to expect the sync to take 1 day of CPU work if you dont have good CPU. So definitively not recommended to try Bitcoin Core for newcommer in my opinion, unless he knows what he is doing.

Electrum or blockchain info should be generally better for newcommers imo.

I can say that blockchain is the best wallet I've ever used. Their interface is simple and very easy to use.
Although they got a problem recently, I'm usually preparing myself another offline wallet to confront this problem

Blockchain.info is likely the most popular wallet, mainly because it is user friendly and multi platform being online based.

I also think their Android app stands above the alternatives as it's the most aesthetically pleasing.

Hello!
Welcome the forum mate!
To answer your question, there are several good wallets which you can try out.
Bitcoin Core is the most known one. For that one you need to download the the actual client and just install it.This whole process can take some while as you have to download the whole Blockchain, which is bit more than 30GB right now I believe.
Another great wallet for desktop I like to recommend is Electrum. Pretty simple to use, kind of self explaining and fast to install.
For mobile phones there many options. Here I prefer MyCelium.

Listen to the more knowledgable ones than me.  Grin
As stated, Bitcoin core is the original wallet but it does require a lot of hard-drive space. It is easily 20+ GB of data. I recommend Multibit HD or Electrum as you can easily download them and only partially download the blockchain. You can easily back up your wallet with seed words with makes it much more simple. Blockchain.info wallet is incredibly useful also. You can store all your coins on the web wallet. It is truly up to you to decide.

Unfortunately this is true! They have over 500k active wallets which is mind-blowing to me if we consider how buggy and unreliable they are!

I do not recommend them to anyone, even though they might be the most popular one!

it's well known that the online wallet service from blockchain.info is by far the most popular wallet. i also use it, but only with small amounts as i don't want to leave much coins in any online wallet. the coins i have in my online wallet are probably 50% of what i would have in my physical wallet.

I think web based, centralized wallet service will have a large market share at the beginning, when people are all used to centralized banking services around the world today. Suppose that some large banks provide wallet service, there will be many people switch to that service quickly

Hello :-)

The most popular wallet is blockchain.info

It may be popular but it is not the most safest option. The best best for you is a paper wallet or something like electrum. Blockchain.info is probably very popular due to it being so easy and convenient to use and that it is also a web wallet.

It depends on which demographic we're considering here.  The online wallets like xapo and blockchain.io are popular with those who like throwing dust around the ledger.  But, a full node wallet like Bitcoin Core is the most popular with the serious bitcoiner who considers the security of the network.

I use both...I do my part to secure the network by running a full node wallet and I support the community by dusting the blockchain with my online wallet.

I use both blockchain and coinbase both are user friendly

I've read that blockchain has their issues, that's why I decided to use coinbase as well

Better to be safe than sorry later and also a local wallet would be good too.
