Hi guys, I created this topic to enhance the knowledge of those who still beginning in Crypto World.I recently found some articles about this on the internet and I also noticed that no one has ever posted a topic like this so I just came up to this idea to share this information about Bitcoin wallet. I know there are a lot of people who already knows what is Bitcoin wallet and what is its purpose. But there are also some people here who didn't know about these things for sure. I make some research but you can still find information like this in internet on your own if you want, but I will explain it to you here so that you won't need to go to intermet to search certain informations like these.

Contents:
*Basic information about Bitcoin wallet address
*Types of wallets
*Example of bitcoin wallets and its advantage and Disadvantage.
*Download links, links and official website of bitcoin wallets are provided below to avoid phishing sites. They are 100% real.


Lets start with what is Bitcoin wallet.

According to Investopedia Bitcoin wallet is a Software/Hardare where we can be able to store Bitcoins. This is mostly similar to wallet we used for storing money.

Bitcoin wallet consists of
1. Passwords/Private keys- which is needed to access your wallet account. Private keys and Passwords are very important. These keeps our wallets secured. We must always keep it in a safe place and never forget it or else. We will just end up unable to access our wallets.

2. Wallet address - it represents a possible destination for Bitcoin payments and transactions. Bitcoin wallet address is not like Passwords that we need to keep by ourselves. Instead it is the opposite of Passwords where we can share to anyone or to public.  If somebody will send you bitcoins just give them your Bitcoin wallet address. Same as if you want to send some bitcoin. Just ask for their Bitcoin wallet address. You can find Wallet address in your wallets. It consists 26 to 35 alphanumeric characters that start with either "1" or "3".


There are types of Bitcoin wallets,
1. Paper wallet
2. Software wallet
3. Hardware wallet


Hardware wallet - A hardware wallet is a physical electronic device used for storing bitcoins. Some people says Hardware wallets are the best choice because it is secured, reliable and convenient. Hardware wallet is better than Software wallet because it is much easier to store bitcoin and it is more secured, east to backup and less margin for errors but the problem is, Hardware wallets are not free. They are too expensive. Here are some examples of Hardware wallet.

1. Ledger Nano S

Advantages:
*Allows storage of the world’s leading digital currencies.
*Integrates with a multitude of software wallets.
*An OLED display that allows you to double-check each transaction.
*One of the most affordable OLED-based hardware wallets.
*Supports more Cryptocurrencies than Trezor.

Disadvantages:
*Not as reputable as some of the leading hardware wallets, such as TREZOR.
*Not for free.

Buy Ledger Nano S here(official website): https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-nano-s?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIu8PcrIXi2QIVGKrsCh2yBgX0EAAYAiAAEgLXZPD_BwE


2. TREZOR

Advantages:
*Security. Limits the ways your Trezor can be accessed and protects it from hacking.
*Multiple currencies. Supports several currencies other than bitcoin and can convert transaction amounts to and from fiat currency.
*Easy-to-use interface. The myTrezor browser plug-in makes it easy complete transactions.

Disadvantages:
*Complicated PIN. It takes time to set up the plug-in, and you must re-enter your PIN using an obscured keypad every time you plug in the Trezor.
*Limited transaction opportunities. Because it’s a hardware wallet, the Trezor must be plugged into a computer to make transactions, unlike mobile or paper wallets that can be used on the go.
*Not for free

3. Keepkey

Advantages:
*Top-notch security standards make it virtually impossible for hackers or viruses to steal your private key.
*Offers the same security features as more established products, such as TREZOR.
*Attractive, professionally designed OLED display makes using the device easier than other similar products.
*Provides access to the world’s leading cryptocurrencies.

Disadvantages:
*A lack of web wallet means users must add software such as Electrum or MultiBit to make use of its applications.
*Larger size makes it slightly less portable than TREZOR or Ledger, which can fit comfortably in your pocket.
*Setup is fairly straightforward, but doesn’t allow users to save their progress.
*Not for free

These are the example of hardware wallets. Although they have their own advantages, they also have disadvantages and these are very expensive.


Now lets move on to Software wallets.


Software wallets - Software wallets are like what I've discussed earlier. It is an application which we can install in our Computers or mobile devices like Android and Ios but not just that because there are also Software wallet that is web based wallets. Most of all software wallets requires internet connection in order to access and ofcourse our password too.
Here are some examples of software wallets.

Actually Mycelium is the first Bitcoin wallet I ever used. I've tested this one and it is really secured. Mycelium can also be connected to hardware wallets like ledger nano S, trezor and keepkey.

These are some fo Software wallets that I found in internet. But there are still more a lot of wallets out there. Some are just unrated and not popular. What I mentioned above are trusted and known wallet.
Remember, there are some fake wallets that sometimes used to steal your bitcoins. I recommend to read their reviews first and make some research about your desired wallet for your safety.
Oh I forgot something, I'm not finish yet. I've only discussed Hardware and Software wallet which means Paper Wallets are not yet discussed. Well lets proceed.


Paper wallets- paper wallets are documents containing all of the data that is needed to generate any number of bitcoin private keys. It is usually used for storing bitcoins offline as a physical document. I cant be able to give some examples of paper wallet because paper wallets are just documents made by people. But it is still a way of storing bitcoin.



Well, thats all. I have copied some of the information here from the articles I found. I make some research and gathered information from different sites and combined them as one information and this is the result. I made this for you guys so that you can be able to know further informations without going to different kinds of sites just to find answers. I hope it helps.

This is just Wallets that supports bitcoins. Some wallet might be not included because they didn't supports bitcoin like Ethereum wallets.

If you have questions feel free to aks, And also if I violate some rules please tell me and I will lock this thread Immediately. Please don't tag me negative trust. I just want to help by sharing informations.

I think Bitcoin should be stored on a cold wallet because it does not need internet connection because it stores Bitcoin offline so it will limit the possibility of theft from hackers in the world but it has one disadvantage that you will have difficulty in spend as well as buy, sell the product online.

Good job @Silent26. It's been a while I've seen a thread on this board where extensive research was done before putting up a thread.

Meanwhile, I would like to suggest you add which wallets can be used for Segwit addresses and Ios devices.

Thanks for your kind words guys. I will keep posting more informative researches later on. I am willing to help those people lacking more information about some stuff in Crypto world. As long as I'm not violating any rules and not harming anyone, I will do my best to help you guys. I hope I really helped you by just these informations. By the way. Thank you again.


really appreciate your work to provide explanations that may be needed by the seeker of information, and may also be added some things from questions that may not be clear.

Thanks for the advice Sir. I will make it more well-ordered next time.

There are many information about wallets out there. Altought this might be good to post if google and google will probably index this page so newbies land here in search of wallets. Honestly that part at end, the promtion that you put is totally irrelevant to the whole theard and can be seen unproffessional from your side. You haven't put all wallets but lets say it is somewhat good list shall we. People don't report issues with Jaxx, but there are known issues with how safe this wallet is actually secure to use, many bad things PLUS IT IS NOT OPEN SOURCE like many of wallets you have listed and you should put this as well. Not open source you can't really tell what an wallet is doing in the background other than to trust the developers of it.

Please, change the information about TREZOR. You have described TREZOR One which was released a few years ago. TREZOR is now shipping out the pre-orders of its the latest model T. Could you separate these two models? Entering PIN on TREZOR T is much easier because everything is done on device's touchscreen, no more complicated patterns. The same thing goes for passphrases and seed recovery/creation, you don't have to worry about keyloggers which is a huge advantage. I would be grateful if you could change that. If you need more information, feel free to ask!

Hi, a bit of top here, but with good intentions  Smiley

Code:
[iurl=#stuff]Stuff[/iurl] ->menu entry/table of content
[anchor=stuff]Stuff[/anchor] ->anchor to content

I see some potential in your thread. Looks very informative and content rich.  
Above I have posted a way of making a menu or rather "table of contents". It could help in user friendliness department of your work.
Hope it will prove itself useful to you. I would also recommend you to add some sort of EULA for your content, example of a license here.

I apologise Sir. I just added it a little while ago. But yes you're right, It's irrelevant to the topic. But I think there's no problem adding this little information since I'm promoting Docademic. But don't worry Sir I removed it already. 

You haven't put all wallets but lets say it is somewhat good list shall we. People don't report issues with Jaxx, but there are known issues with how safe this wallet is actually secure to use, many bad things PLUS IT IS NOT OPEN SOURCE like many of wallets you have listed and you should put this as well. Not open source you can't really tell what an wallet is doing in the background other than to trust the developers of it.

Thanks for this information. I updated the thread.

People don't report issues with Jaxx, but there are known issues with how safe this wallet is actually secure to use,
Actually there are really some reported issues about Jaxx. Some says  it freezes and some functions are not working well. I think these issues keep Jaxx low rated than other application wallets. But it is still a good wallet for some people. It just need a little improvement from the developers.

Please, change the information about TREZOR. You have described TREZOR One which was released a few years ago. TREZOR is now shipping out the pre-orders of its the latest model T. Could you separate these two models? Entering PIN on TREZOR T is much easier because everything is done on device's touchscreen, no more complicated patterns.

If you need more information, feel free to ask!
Yes you are right Sir. But what I have discussed to Trezor is some of its advantages and disadvantages. I didn't include the features and other improvements of the latest Trezor because I thought its unnecessary since I'm just giving some basic and main information about the wallets I provided. My main goal is to atleast give people some ideas about different wallets and its pros and cons. I think the improvements and new features of each wallet is unnecessary. But still,  Thank you for your information Sir. People who read this thread will also find your post helpful.

Well, I thought it might be worth mentioning since you wrote "Ledger Nano S" instead of just "Ledger". There was also Ledger Blue but it was discontinued. I still think that it would be a good idea to add this model since it "fixes" the disadvantages of the previous model, but it's up to you. You should also try formatting the whole text, it will look better. Try to bold some of the most important information such as software and hardware wallets definition.

Silent26,you invest some time and research in your thread and there is no doubt that it will be of help for newbies and for some more experienced users.I'm not sure is this thread belongs here or would be more appropriate to be posted in Beginners&Help,but this is up to you and moderator.

Some things I would added/change to your descriptions :

Ledger Nano S is support much more crypto coins then Trezor,and Ledger reputation is not in any case worse then Trezor.

For any online wallet,like Blockchain.info it would be well worth mentioning that this is not a way to store&keep coins for long term.if you not have full control of your private keys-you can lose them anytime.

Another thing that would be worth mentioning is download of any wallets from internet,there is so many attempts of phishing and users often download fake wallets and lose coins in that way.So maybe would be good to add legit link for every wallet which you have described.

I recently got to know about how rich and secured coinomi is. It is not open to the public which is the most important. Difficult for hackers if you don't expose your password & seed. Having numerous wallets for different coins plus support for additional tokens is another advantage it has.

That's a very nice and detailed list of available Bitcoin wallets. But I think you should treat them equally in terms of being open-source or not, as in some wallets you mention it as a benefit, while in other you don't mention it at all. Bitcoin Core, Electrum and Armory are all fully open-source, while most hardware wallets are not fully open-source and exodus isn't either. Open-source is an important aspect of the safety of a wallet, as it allows you to verify whether a wallet is working as described and doesn't include any backdoors.

Several of these wallets I have used. The paper wallet is best for huge amount storage and of course for any amount in long-term. Ledger Nano is user-friendly including newbie. I'm using one of it right now.
If you ask me about web wallet, well I don't prefer them but if I need to use one, I'd prefer blockchain.info.
I use Mycelium and Coinomi where Mycelium is the winner. For PC I prefer Bitcoin core because I have a limited trust level for third-party apps and tools.

Oh ,I just used the name Ledger Nano S because it is the common name called by people to Ledger wallet.  Grin and it is also the name that I saw in some articles that I found. They also called it Ledger Nano S that's why it's the name I also used.
You should also try formatting the whole text, it will look better. Try to bold some of the most important information such as software and hardware wallets definition.
Because of excitement I forgot to use some of the forums functions for formatting text. Thank you for reminding me.

Silent26,you invest some time and research in your thread and there is no doubt that it will be of help for newbies and for some more experienced users.I'm not sure is this thread belongs here or would be more appropriate to be posted in Beginners&Help,but this is up to you and moderator.

Some things I would added/change to your descriptions :

Ledger Nano S is support much more crypto coins then Trezor,and Ledger reputation is not in any case worse then Trezor.

For any online wallet,like Blockchain.info it would be well worth mentioning that this is not a way to store&keep coins for long term.if you not have full control of your private keys-you can lose them anytime.

Another thing that would be worth mentioning is download of any wallets from internet,there is so many attempts of phishing and users often download fake wallets and lose coins in that way.So maybe would be good to add legit link for every wallet which you have described.
That's a good Idea. Working on it Sir. I will add the links for each of these wallets where it can be downloaded and buy. Actually I really decided to post this thread in this section because, Im thinking that if I posted this in Beginners&Help. There's a possibility that no non-beginners can't find this topic since they don't visit Beginners&Help Sections too much. But it still depends on our Moderators to where this topic really belongs  Grin
By the way. Thank you for adding more informations Sir  Wink I appreciate it so much.
