1) You should never access a website which asks for your private key to access your funds. If you do, they will also have access to your funds along with you.
2) Why do you need a service like that? You can access your funds from an online wallet like blockchain.com?
3) The closest thing to myetherwallet for bitcoin would be bitaddress.org.

Better to use a wallet like Electrum to import the private-key and view/spend the funds.

Bitaddress doesn't allow me to access an address by entering its private key.

Blockchain.com, same story. Can't enter a key and access an address as far as I can see. Can create a wallet and "login" (...).

So basically the answer is no..

As for #1, that's however how most people access myetherwallet and dex such as idex or etherdelta. Not everyone cares to use metamask, especially in Asian countries (China first come to my mind) where private keys are kept "stored" on a wechat self-conversation and copypasted on a regular basis.

Like TryNinja mentioned above, you can use Electrum for that? Hardly takes 2 minutes to set that up and it's more secure than all the online wallets. You can try this open source wallet https://coinb.in/ (at your own risk, download it offline and then use it). Blockchain.com does help you access the address by importing the private keys, here's their tutorial https://blog.blockchain.com/2014/06/18/tutorial-the-import-export-feature-in-your-blockchain-wallet/ Obviously you have to make an account first to do that.

Excellent question OP!  Smiley

I would also like to know, for BTC and BCH, is there anything like that?

For Ether and Monero there is but what about other cryptos? An account-less web interface that allows importing a private key and creating transactions?

Electrum is great but it needs a system that can run it locally, while MEW can be used from anything that has a browser, even a public computer in an Internet cafe.

Pretty useful in certain situations I am sure... Wink

Coinb.in allows you to create transactions and then broadcast that transaction onto the BTC network after you verify the transaction on their website to make sure it's valid; this is about the closest thing I can think of to MEW in BTC. I've used coinb.in before for signing a transaction and broadcasting it in the past, and the service worked just fine, albeit I wasn't too experienced with the entire process at that point. It'd definitely be a good thing if MEW ever created a service for BTC in the future, though.

As far as I know there is no such wallets available for now other than some scam sites.

Lets check out this 20+ Best Bitcoin Wallets to Store Bitcoins - WeUseCoins which may help you to find the bitcoin wallets based on your criteria.

Isn't that how all wallets should work?

Only web wallet I used was blockchain.info but I haven't use it for more than a year, anyway, it seems most popular web wallet around here.  Check this board for more wallets https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=222.0 , and as someone already suggested try Electrum...or Mycelium.

Entering private key to an online wallet is a security threat to your funds. You know what they say about things that are put or stored online? It means it can be hacked no matter how hard their security is. It can always be broken worse is by the disgruntled employee of that website. Its best to just keep your coins on a desktop wallet if you just meant to hold your coins because that is what I think you would be doing if you just want to put your tokens in myetherwallet.

Bitaddress doesn't allow me to access an address by entering its private key.


Can't you go to wallet details -> Enter bitcoin private key -> see adress ?

You're right though that you won't be able to sign a transaction from there, and using that to generate adresses from a private key does seem pretty incovenient.

There was another thread about this roughly a year ago. -- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2251765.0

Seems like the only site that is somewhat viable is coinb.in, as mentioned.

Thank you very much Patatas for the thorough answer. Nothing like myetherwallet still. Perhaps about time someone fills this gap.
I definitely see a market for a webwallet such as MEW for a bitcoin, with features such as segwit et al. But even with browser-sided generation of wallets/privkeys, i feel like there's still going to be a big trust issue.

A better version of blockchain.com so to speak, still though, i personally, would have much trouble using such a wallet. I doubt a lot of the current blockchain.com users share that sentiment though.

you are missing the point of MEW! it exists because there is no alternative easy to use light weight wallet for ethereum. so they created a web interface so that you can communicate with their node and transact ether.

in bitcoin we already have all kinds of wallets, including light wallets such as Electrum which are easy to use and fast and more importantly safer than a web wallet written in JavaScript.
and don't forget that when it comes to handling "money" security is much more important than convenience. that means this "gap" you are talking about is a security flaw that you are asking for!!!

It's a matter of preferences.

Anyway there is stuff like that also for ethereum (Eidoo for instance).

Try greenaddress.

Just download the wallet and log in through your mnemonic passphrase. I've been using it and its very convenient to use, it will only take few minutes to download the wallet itself. IIRC this was categorized to web wallet before on https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet but now its on different category.

Saw these wallets https://bitcoin.org/en/wallets/web/ but I haven't tried any of them.

Basically those good wallets requires you to download their app, logging in directly with your private key/seed every time to access your funds with a MEW-type btc wallet is quite risky if you're not careful enough with what you download.

There's NO bitcoin wallet exist like myetherwallet so far. Most of the mentioned are web wallets or wallet generator such bitaddress which doesn't include to the main purpose of OP. But I'd rather to use some existing secured wallet though.

Most similar to myetherwallet is only coinb.in which is mentioned already above. I wonder if someone will make such wallet due to treats of phishing.

Thank you very much Patatas for the thorough answer. Nothing like myetherwallet still. Perhaps about time someone fills this gap.

you are missing the point of MEW! it exists because there is no alternative easy to use light weight wallet for ethereum. so they created a web interface so that you can communicate with their node and transact ether.

in bitcoin we already have all kinds of wallets, including light wallets such as Electrum which are easy to use and fast and more importantly safer than a web wallet written in JavaScript.
and don't forget that when it comes to handling "money" security is much more important than convenience. that means this "gap" you are talking about is a security flaw that you are asking for!!!

It's a matter of preferences.

Anyway there is stuff like that also for ethereum (Eidoo for instance).

checking out Eidoo i have to say it is nothing like bitcoin SPV wallets such as Electrum. Eidoo is basically a key storage program capable of doing part of the responsibilities of a wallet which include generating random keys and storing them and signing transactions.
but it heavily depends on a server for everything else, in comparison with bitcoin you have ways of preventing a lot of fraud by downloading block headers, using bloom filters,... but in this wallet (i haven't extensively reviewed it though) you trust the server you connect to fully.

Was wondering if there is any website where one can enter his private key for a btc address and access those funds.
I have never come across that and if that happens it will be to risk for you.  Your private keys should never be used carelessly.  I think myetherwallet also give warning that it is too risky to do that.  I have been using blockchain.info for sometimes now and I think it is far safer than any other websites that provides wallets and trading services.  If you agree with me I think technologies is developing and you should be able to afford hardware wallet which is a bit safer.

Entering private key to an online wallet is a security threat to your funds. You know what they say about things that are put or stored online? It means it can be hacked no matter how hard their security is. It can always be broken worse is by the disgruntled employee of that website. Its best to just keep your coins on a desktop wallet if you just meant to hold your coins because that is what I think you would be doing if you just want to put your tokens in myetherwallet.
This is right and I could remember how my friend lose his 1 bitcoin in December last year through placing his private in a site mistakenly.

If you're also interested in the other common use for MEW, which is to quickly view any tokens you might own sitting on your Bitcoin address, not sure there's any particular wallet for that. Counterparty wallet only let's you see assets created with that protocol... I think Omni the same, but haven't caught up so maybe there are developments. Token market lists most of the actively trading Bitcoin assets.
