Inspired by post, I’ve decided to start a new series of threads devoted to different important topics around cryptocurrencies where we can accumulate and share community knowledge, experience and recommendations. Something similar to awesome lists on github.

I see it like this:

  1. Each month I will post a thread devoted to a single specific topic for example: wallets, dev tools, media, education sources etc. This post also will be linked in the community’s sidebar.
  2. Any community member will be able to share his/her recommendation in comments.
  3. After a month it all will be repeated with a new topic.

I propose to start with wallets. Hope we as a community will come up with a list of valuable products without spam and self promotion.

So, feel free to share the valuable recommendations in comments with a link to a wallet, short description and your reasoning why it deserves to be here.

Ethereum

I recommend using Metamask with a trezor. If you need multisig capabilities on Ethereum, then use gnosis-safe. Rainbow has the nicest ascetics if you are a mobile user.

Bitcoin

Electrum, it has lighting support built in and works with Trezor if you have one.

Bitcoin Cash

Does anyone still use Bitcoin cash?.. Fees are cheap and quite a few merchants accept it. Anyways Electron Cash works for me.

Monero

Monero GUI Wallet, also works with Trezor.

1. Bitcoin only:

2. Multicoins support:

  • trezor.io - 1000+ coins and tokens support, opensource software, affordable, begginers friendly.

great idea, the exchange rates of Metamask are sooo high, the minimum is $15 and half of that goes to some exchange, so you only end up getting $6 worth of Eth, not worth it in my opinion
