I recommend WalletBit also.

And I know they are trying hard to be a quality and secure service.
walletbit.com looks professional but the person behind it is anonymous! There is no name or address information on the site at all. The only information you can find is through a domain-whois query:

Quote from: whois(walletbit.com)
Administrative Contact:
Gain, Code info@codegain.dk
Codegain
Copenhagen
Copenhagen, na 1550
Denmark
+36.990167
No real name ("Gain, Code" ?), no real address ("Copenhagen, na 1550" ?)....same for codegain.dk and bitmon.me

I'm not saying they are a scam, they might be honest, but the guy behind mybitcoin.com was also anonymous and we know how that ended....


Tradehill has announced that they will start an online wallet service at http://www.bitcoin.com , i would rather trust them than anonymous:

You have 2 phone numbers to call on their website and also an IRC channel.

Oh, search for a member named Kris here on the forum and you'll find what you are looking for Wink

I'll even save you the trouble of searching: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=11921

Look, people asking for info on how to lose their BTC!  Cheesy

Quote
Why isn't it a good idea to keep the money at an exchange?
Oh i dunno... maybe... mybticoins? bitomat?

Let me rephrase it then. Someone said that exchanges are not good e-wallets. I was saying that there isn't much difference between keeping your money at an exchange or keeping it at an e-wallet.

Yeah, i've seen that. But it's still very shady for an online wallet service to register a domain under a fake name and fake address. It's not some gambling site where you gamble with 0.xBTC, it's meant to be a wallet service that will hold many accounts with the (maybe entire) BTC savings of people (average joe). An IRC channel and the telephone number are both worthless for legal steps and the "Kris" user on this forum may use a proxy to write here. If they are that honest, why didn't they use real information for the domain registration? And why don't they have any real contact information directly on their site?

Again, i'm not saying they are a scam site. The site looks professional and it's creator might be honest. I just wouldn't trust the site because they do not have any real contact information directly listed on their site and the domain is registered with fake data.

The site is a ripoff from flattr. The owner seems easy to contact and an honest guy. But I agree, I would prefer a real contact information. He posted in some other thread... here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=37190.0

Maybe then they should keep 25% of their bitcoins at 4 different ewallets Smiley

There's also the option to rent your own wallet on a secure linux server...

http://bitcoinforums.net/index.php?threads/bitcoin-cloud-wallet-hosting.211/

I haven't tried it myself, but the idea sounds solid.

Ok, but this guy still has root access on HIS servers, right?
So he can read the wallets...
But maybe I misunderstood what he's proposing

Anyway, I'm not saying he is to scam his clients but as usual, trust nobody especially on the interwebz

Own address: 19QkqAza7BHFTuoz9N8UQkryP4E9jHo4N3 - Pywallet support: 1AQDfx22pKGgXnUZFL1e4UKos3QqvRzNh5 - Bitcointalk++ script support: 1Pxeccscj1ygseTdSV1qUqQCanp2B2NMM2
Pywallet: instructions. Encrypted wallet support, export/import keys/addresses, backup wallets, export/import CSV data from/into wallet, merge wallets, delete/import addresses and transactions, recover altcoins sent to bitcoin addresses, sign/verify messages and files with Bitcoin addresses, recover deleted wallets, etc.

Here's some real info for you: http://whois.domaintools.com/codegain.dk

Maybe WalletBit is OWNED by codegain, thus the CodeGain registration info on the domain, i dunno...  Roll Eyes

For someone so suspicious you could research it a little better.  Tongue

After all the codegain.dk domain WAS on the whois for walletbit.
And let me tell you something: if registering a .dk is as "easy" as registering a .pt or .es he would need a REAL company/person to to be able to buy the domain. Just sayin'
