It exists different types of wallets out there. Here we will go in the detail of online wallet, because I think, that is the most flexible and easiest version of bitcoin wallets. Another advantage is the access to your online wallet from any place where you are regardless of the device.
Also online wallet has a disadvantage. The online wallet providers hosts the private key of the wallets and therefore you don’t have the full control over it.
It seem daunting especially as newbie. Therefore we take only the really trusted provider.
Blockchain.info has established itself 2011 in London. They grew fast and now they are the biggest provider of online wallets. Blockchain.info has a lot of security measures and the latest encryption system. All bitcoin transactions can be tracked with a search box.
XAPO – Quick and easy could be the motto of XAPO. That was my impression, as I have signed up at XAPO. Xapo combines the convenience of an everyday bitcoin wallet with the security of a deep cold storage vault. Website and mobile app are well made.
Coinbase – Besides their business as exchange service, they also offer a online wallet worldwide. The exchange services is only usable from US and the most european countries.
