If I got a Btc wallet say its is called Brand A.
Now I want to get a little ETH. I see a wallet where I can use Btc and ETH in the same wallet.
Can I use my seed on the new wallet. Or do I need to xfer my BTC to a coin exchange, load the new wallet and start over making a new seed?
Looked a while and found no answer.

thx.

You'll need a separate address for bitcoin and eth.

The wallet should give you different addresses(or allow you to generate different addresses) to send different cryptos to your wallet.

My Electrum wallet does not look to allow ETH coins.

a "wallet" using 2 networks. wont be a full node. so there are risks that it may grab ur privkey

dont use it for large amounts and do some research on the company/devs that created it.

check to see if they have open sourced their code and use the open source to create a compiled wallet after reviewing the code doesnt contain trojans or ways to send the privkeys to someone

I don't think that is mathematically possible, but I am staying tuned for the OP to respond to the two of us on this.

Thought I seen a wallet that does both.
Looking for it now.... was looking for PC wallet that did both instead of one or the other only.
I'm new so thx for being nice to me.

Seen the Exodus wallet supported many coins. Thought not sure if they was all separate wallets or one wallet.

So for a ETH wallet that is easy like Electrum what would you all suggest?

Exodus-

Bear with me while I give you my OPINION:  I haven't personally used this software but I see a few folks that really like it and claim they have received good support when they had a few issues.  The following fact is a deal breaker for me.  Exodus (their claim) is closed source.  That means that I cannot review the code used while the wallet is in operation.  I cannot build my own binary to run and therefore there is no way for me to be sure WHAT code I am running.  Now when it comes to my BTC, which are currently worth around 1200 each, I want to know there is no sinister backdoor'd code that could be executed and my coins are gone.  My wallets are not fraction of a coin wallets by any means.  I am NOT accusing them of running a scam with code, just saying I can't examine what is happening behind the scenes.

Rather than answer the PM you sent me, I'll answer here for the benefit of others.  I don't have any first hand experience with ETH.  Therefore I am reluctant to make a suggestion as to a wallet to use with ETH.  Maybe others reading this thread would feel the liberty to express their opinions on your behalf.
