desktop wallets 2017-10-30T23:53:36+00:00

A desktop wallet is more secure that an online wallet because rather than being stored on an online server, your private key is stored on your computer hard drive. This adds an extra level of protection to your assets because if an online exchange was to go down, any coins stored in a wallet on that platform could potentially be lost. This is very rare, and although most online exchanges are very reputable and trustworthy, if you plan on buying and holding a large amount for a long time, a desktop wallet would probably be the best option for you.
Desktop wallets allow you to back up the wallet at your will, as well as generating a brain key for you to keep secure should there ever be a problem with your computer, or you wish to access your funds from another device.

BitShares – Your share in the Decentralized Exchange
