A versatile wallet that is capable of storing or transferring to multiple coin

3.My Ether Wallet
When users open their wallets, they need to enter their personal address key password. This is a great example of how people recommend using it.

For example, when you want to use MyEtherWallet offline to trade, trade, or send cryptocurrency, there are many different ways. To access the wallet, use: Keystore File (Utc / Json), Private Key, Mnemonis Phrase, Ledger Nano S, TREZOR.

I think you need to distinguish between "cold" hardware wallets vs software and mobile wallets (there are also paper wallets too).

You also need to distinguish whether you hold the private keys for the wallet you use or whether they are held by a third party.

Ledger Nano S and Trezor are cold hardware wallets where you hold the private keys.

Coinbase is basically an exchange wallet where they hold your private keys so that's one less level of security and depends on your trust of Coinbase as a third party.

Exodus and MEW are also popular. I believe both have been hacked at times in their history so you need to be careful. MEW was actually just hacked recently. I'm not sure who stores the private keys for these wallets (between the user or the wallet company).

How can you put Coinbase and not Electrum in your list? Coinbase isn't even a wallet. And where is Core?

Bad list IMO. This looks more like a list of random "wallets" than a "top 5 of safest wallets";

Not at the moment. However, Ledger is working on its own Ethereum app, so users won't need to be stuck with MEW.

It seems like you have absolutely no clue what you're talking about, as far as bitcoin related wallets and their security go.

Quote
and coinbase and blockchaininfo best for btc wallet

As TryNinja already mentioned above, coinbase isn't a wallet to begin with. They allow no access to your private keys, your fee settings(afaik). You basically don't own any bitcoins you store there. Coinbase has complete control.

I believe blockchain.info has already had issues in the past with incorrectly generating seeds, (https://bravenewcoin.com/news/blockchain-info-bug-exposes-users-private-keys/)

Furthermore they don't allow you to make CPFP transactions, or Doublespend/Replace by fee. Neither do they allow you to easily access your private key. (I believe you'll need to manually regenerate it using your seed in another wallet such as Electrum?) I don't see why anyone would use them over Electrum/Bitcoin Core at this point. User Convenience?

Also, Electroneum is an altcoin, and your link is referring to the Bitcoin Core thread. Which one is it?

Well, it reads that Coinbase keeps the key of the wallet and they can decide to stop the account if they wish. So the question is how did it get to top five?
I agree that Ledger Nano S and Trezor are great and safe. Exodus is probably good as well for multi coin storage. Also MEW is not a wallet but an interface.

One of the best and secure wallet for BTC is Electrum. The best software wallet for me. For ETH and ERC20 I would recommend MetaMask.

Ledger Nano and Trezor are definitely safe, as they have much more security against hacking or theft--both are pretty easy to use too which is always a plus.

Yes. The interfaces of MEW and MyCrypto are very similar due to MyCrypto being a fork of MEW. What happened pretty much is that both founders of MEW split up due to certain conflicts.

I completely agree with AdolfinWolf and TryNinja, but wanted to go the extra mile and offer my "5 safest bitcoin wallets", just in case a newbie stumbles upon this thread... This way i figure he can at least leave with some safe advice

1. My absolute safest wallet: a recently compiled bitcoin core on an AIRGAPPED pc. If you can make regular offline backups and keep them safe, it might even be a good idear to configure your core wallet to be non-hd, so private keys get generated completely random (but if you do this, you need to backup your wallet.dat very regulary => https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/How_to_set_up_a_secure_offline_savings_wallet

2. A recent version of electrum on an airgapped PC... Keep the seed safe Wink => http://docs.electrum.org/en/latest/coldstorage.html

3. A correctly generated paper wallet, using BIP38 encryption with a very strong passphrase. Do make sure you follow the proper procedure for creating a paper wallet, and use a paper wallet generator with a truely vetted RNG... An offline copy of bitaddress.org usually does the trick... Make sure your pc is offline during the whole creation process, and rebooted before put back online... And make sure no copy of the paper wallet ever touches an online device (for the truely paranoid: make sure the printer used for printing the wallet is offline, and rebooted right after printing the wallet... Also, make sure you securely wipe the usbstick you used to transfer the paper wallet... Formatting or just deleting images is NOT a secure way to wipe a stick!!!)

4. Trezor model T or trezor one... Since they've been around longer than ledger, i would put them 1 place higher than ledger

5. Ledger model S

Whatever you do, think about your wallet choice. If you only hold a small amount of BTC, a desktop wallet on an clean, online machine might be fine... Core or electrum are my prefered wallets in this scenario... If you hold more than 0.5BTC, it might be a good idear to invest in a decent hardware wallet or start using a paper wallet... If you hold a small fortune, it's defenatly a good idear to spread your funds, and also use a couple cold wallets to store your wealth...
The only thing you should avoid (imho) is storing BTC (or altcoins) in an online wallet or exchange... If you're not the only one in controll of your private keys, you're not in controll of your funds. The only thing an online wallet is good for is to store spending money when you're away for a longer time... You know, a couple hundred bucks worth of BTC for when you're on vacation and you want access to this money just in case you find something interesting to spend it on... But even then, i'd prefer a mobile wallet to store this spending money on instead of an online wallet.

I don't think My Ether Wallet and coinbase are safest wallet. You should avoid something called web wallet to avoid hack or some phishing site Undecided .
And as far as i know, coinbase isn't wallet but more like exchanger or something like that. Even they already said if coinbase isn't a wallet on their blog.

True, Coinbase should be used as a wallet. But even though MyEtherWallet falls under a "web wallet", it's still pretty safe to use as they don't control your private keys. You pretty much just use MyEtherWallet to acess your wallet. Just always make sure that you're navigating to the correct URL.

1. Blockchain
    Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin's turnaround itself, so its superiority as a provider of
    Bitcoin wallet is definitely beyond doubt. You can even see all transactions from all accounts,
    whether it's Bitcoin acceptance or delivery.
2. Bitcoin.co.id
    This one site can be regarded as the most crowded place to buy Bitcoin in Indonesia. Account
    creation at bitcoin.co.id not only provides a wallet address, but also facilities for Bitcoin
    transactions directly with Rupiah (via local bank payment method) and Bitcoin trading.
3. Coinbase
    Coinbase.com is a Bitcoin wallet provider site based in San Francisco, USA. Coinbase's credibility
    and functionality is not much different from Blockchain. But since Blockchain is a Bitcoin original
    technology, it's no wonder Coinbase is a bit less popular than Blockchain.
4. Xapo
    Xapo not only operates as a Bitcoin wallet provider, but also a Faucet site that can provide free
    Bitcoin to its users. It also provides more convenience because users can directly enter Bitcoin
    into the wallet that has been integrated with its Faucet system.
5. BitX
    BitX is the second site that provides Bitcoin wallet as well as trading for Indonesian clients. But
    unlike bitcoin.co.id, BitX does not accept digital currency storage other than Bitcoin. BitX itself is
    now rebranding into Luno which operates as a global company and has branch offices in London,
    Singapore, and Cape Town.

I personally belief none of the 5 suggestions made by CryptoMauren should be considered as a safe wallet...

1. Blockchain
    Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin's turnaround itself, so its superiority as a provider of
    Bitcoin wallet is definitely beyond doubt. You can even see all transactions from all accounts,
    whether it's Bitcoin acceptance or delivery.
The blockchain company is NOT the company that's behind the creation of the blockchain technology!!!!!!!!!
Satoshi is the one (or the group of people) that wrote the whitepaper and the first reference client. AFAIK, he doesn't work for blockchain.com (or blockchain.info)... Well, we don't know the identity of satoshi, but the odds of him working for blockchain.com are very small.
Blockchain.com = private company that specialises in implementations of the blockchain techology
the blockchain = the techology behind a decentral, immutable trustless ledger on which bitcoin was built
Blockchain.com != the blockchain
Blockchain.info is a web wallet, which is inherently unsafe

2. Bitcoin.co.id
    This one site can be regarded as the most crowded place to buy Bitcoin in Indonesia. Account
    creation at bitcoin.co.id not only provides a wallet address, but also facilities for Bitcoin
    transactions directly with Rupiah (via local bank payment method) and Bitcoin trading.
This is an exchange, which is even worse than your first suggestion


3. Coinbase
    Coinbase.com is a Bitcoin wallet provider site based in San Francisco, USA. Coinbase's credibility
    and functionality is not much different from Blockchain. But since Blockchain is a Bitcoin original
    technology, it's no wonder Coinbase is a bit less popular than Blockchain.
Same as point 2...


4. Xapo
    Xapo not only operates as a Bitcoin wallet provider, but also a Faucet site that can provide free
    Bitcoin to its users. It also provides more convenience because users can directly enter Bitcoin
    into the wallet that has been integrated with its Faucet system.
Same as point 2...

5. BitX
    BitX is the second site that provides Bitcoin wallet as well as trading for Indonesian clients. But
    unlike bitcoin.co.id, BitX does not accept digital currency storage other than Bitcoin. BitX itself is
    now rebranding into Luno which operates as a global company and has branch offices in London,
    Singapore, and Cape Town.
