Hello, community. I looking for desktop wallet for Bitcoin and altcoins (Multicoin wallets) with open source code. Most popular wallets do not have open source code. Maybe there are alternative less popular software that allow to understand how it built.

What?
I don't think there's an altcoin that doesn't release its source code!

I think you mean that you have looked only at exchange sites and seen you cannot access how they work as that is how they are designed, otherwise you could manipulate them (unless you use inspect page source).

If you look at something like bitcoin.org and look at the source code for their wallet, it's even on github as github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin where you can access the source code which as far as I recall is either in C or C++.

It would appear that he is talking about "multicoin" wallets:
Exodus - Multi coin, closed source
Coinomi - Multi coin, semi open source (apparently very outdated repo)
Jaxx - Multi coin, technically not "open source" as such, but apparently you can view the code.

So, I'd suggest checking out the code that is available for Jaxx and/or Coinomi if you want some idea of how "multi coin" wallets are coded

Yes, I am interesting in multicoin wallets, but there are no open source multi wallets for desktop.
How I can check jaxx source code?

Visit Jaxx.io website and then click on the "view source code" link at the top... It's a very frustrating way to attempt to view it, it doesn't seem to show the filenames or directory structure etc...

But technically, it's the source code...

I think exodus are also giving you open source you can check the open source that one the their developer posted here https://www.npmjs.com/~jprichardson
Those script list are i think he use for making a multi wallet and i think not a complete code..
If you can found a sample of the code or ready made hope that you can share it also to me and planning to make my own too ..
This is my also wanted before just following some thread but i still didn't seen any good open source of any different multi wallet..

Bull Market is coming....
