This is a discussion on Bitcoin wallet within the online poker forums, in the Poker Deposits & Withdrawals section; What's the best and easiest bitcoin wallet to use? I have to set up such a wallet. Above all, it should be easy to use
Easy and safe do not go hand in hand.
Personally I would stay away from any app based / online wallets. If I would need to move my coins often I would use a hardware wallet like Ledger. Opinions differ, but for long time storage a paper wallet is still an option.
What's the best and easiest bitcoin wallet to use? I have to set up such a wallet. Above all, it should be easy to use and safe.
guess you want to use it only for poker.
The main one, what available and well known and used it for this purpose: Coinbase. If you want to transfer the crypto to your bank account, it is a good one (there is couple of % fee.) Even they have some regulation you can't transfer in/out for gambling purposes, but i never had any problem with that - just heard they blocked some accounts because of that (probably not because small amounts.)
if the safety is the first then hardware ledger, but it isn't free, so probably not the best for first time.
used crypto.com, not the best, but it is okay for this purpose + you can order a debit card, so you can put the cryptos, btc there and spend it without transfer to bank account. (Anyway, i recommend that, find one with free debit card, without monthly cost - depends on where you live, plenty have location restrictions, you can even withdraw from ATM, but the best use it for shopping, in that case none of them counts the 1-5% fee.)
for temporary or trading purposes, found really good the FTX, and you can store crypto there too.
but there are plenty, and these are just the easiest, without download.
Check out the coinmarketcap.com they have a list about different type, kind of wallets.
oh, and always check the fees, even between crypto and crypto there are big differences if you send small amounts. ie. never use cryptos with eth blockchain for small transfers. really expensive.
I can recomend Binance. I'm not sure about their safety in regards to blockchains or cybersafety since I hardly know anything about that But Deposits and withdraws are instant and the App/Browser page is very user friendly.
