Hey FIO Crypto members

Looking for recommendations for a crypto wallet. I am looking to mine coins and need a wallet to put them. I see a lot of options but dont see one which stands out. Any recommendations or reviews would be greatly appreciated!!

Many thanks!

I use a ledger nano s to hold my cryptocurrencies. However, I want a Trezor or an Ellipal wallet. They're pretty awesome.

There's nothing to think about.

I just bought a Trezor One. I need to make time to open the box and configure my wallets...

I'm too small to have one just yet but I know I will need one soon.
Be sure to let us know what you think of it.

Just wondering if you are mining solo or joining a pool. Out of curiosity of the crypto space I started running Nicehash on my video card while I am away from my computer and can manage it from my phone. Probably just barely beating the cost of electricity so looking for alternatives.

Hi @mongoose,

I am getting ready to do a experiment right now with one video card. I hacked together machine with spare parts and I am waiting on the video card to arrive. If the numbers work then I plan on moving it to 7 video cards. Otherwise I will upgrade my main computer with a new video card. Win Win

From what I have read the best way to do it is to be part of a pool. I am looking at using NiceHash or HiveOS out of the gate simply for ease of use. NiceHash charges a fee based on what you make and HiveOS is free up to 4 rigs as long as you use their pool. There are some others such as Geth and Claymore which can be run off a Windows and can point to any pool you want. However, they are command line driven which I dont want to deal with on my first rig.

Apparently this wallet is superb, in terms of secrity ngrave.io I don't have one, but some people I've spoken with, who seem succesful in that space think it is the future, in terms of security. I am new to crypto, so just passing this info on.
thanks

Robert

Ledger S. Honestly if I knew I was going to get into crypto to the extent that I am now, I would've went with the Ledger X at least.

However, if you're just going to hold BTC for example, I don't see anything wrong with using just a ledger S.

There's nothing to think about.

Some people say that Exodus is not safe because it is not open source but I guess that it is not an argument at all. Say, Coinomi used to be opensource but then the developers closed their code and as far as I know there were no accidents of Coinomi being hacked. Same with Exodus.
