If you have more then 2 coins. You should have a core 14 wallet.

I had an 11 and now am doing an up grade to 14,


I also slapped together a new build. With an i5 7500 24 gb ram and a 500 gb ssd.

Did the entire chain in under 13 hours.

I have enough coins that it is worth it to me to do this build.

Isn't this overkill though? I mean what benefit does it bring over owning your own private keys.

As a test I transfered half of my BTC to my "local" electrum wallet. Now all I have to do is keep my data (keys etc) safe, right?


Would you say after the "dust has settled" I can continue to use blockchain.info?

Stay away from ZERGPOOL.com - They don't have backup funds if something goes wrong.
Lost 49 BSD there. PM me if more info is needed.

As long as you control the private keys (basically if your wallet lets you export the private keys then that means you control them).  It will be safe.  But make sure it is backed up on a USB drive or a paper wallet which is just your seed key or phase printed out and saved somewhere safe.

This isnt a discussion on wether or not to buy/sell/mine... This is about bip148.

So, is my BTC safe at blockchain.info or not?

I think it is better to move to your own wallet.
