Hey guys,

I'm getting my Raspberry Pi 3B tomorrow and I was wondering which wallet is best suited for this lightweight and simple machine.
Obviously it has to run a client like Electrum or Multibit, but I'm not entirely sure if these do run on it.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Peace

Raspberries can handle pretty much any wallet you can compile to ARM. The wallet you'll use will depend on the usage you're looking for. Either way Electrum and Armory are very good options.

Decided to install Electrum on it as I'm not looking for a full node on this thing.
Thanks for the advice anyways.

You made a good choice. Electrum is a great client. I have been using it for awhile and I am very happy with it. I've never used a rasberry pi before with it though. Does it work well?

It works decent, obviously my Macbook Pro is much faster in comparison. But you shouldn't run into any problems while using it and it's certainly safer than a normal computer.

Why? There isn't anything special with a Raspberry comparing it to another computer, being it whatever size or architecture. A Raspberry is as safe as any other computer, which means it is as safe as its owner wants it to be.

I agree with you 100%. But I'm comparing the Raspberry Pi to another dedicated machine for Bitcoin (which is often secured just for that purpose).

It's certainly safer if you just use it for BTC in comparison with having a wallet on a PC (or Mac in my case) you use daily.
But, once again, it depends on how safe the user wants it to be.

That being said, yes, hardware wallets such as Trezor are probably more safe than a computer Smiley

Something is only as safe as the owner wants it to be. Trezor could be stolen, Bitcoins could be hacked, nothing is 100% secure. Although, Trezor, KeepKey and other hardware wallets are your best option thus far (except maybe a paper wallet).
