Choosing your Bitcoin Wallet
So your getting into bitcoin? Well first to claim your bitcoin you will need a wallet for an address. A wallet is needed to send and receive bitcoins. Here is a list of wallets that you can choose from for your bitcoin wallet. If there are any other wallets you find or would like to add, comment and I will add them to the list.
Bitcoin-Qt is a full Bitcoin client and builds the backbone of the network. It offers the highest levels of security, privacy, and stability. However, it has fewer features and it takes a lot of space and memory.
Multi-Bit is a lightweight client that focuses on being fast and easy to use. It synchronizes with the network and is ready to use in minutes. MultiBit also supports many languages. It is a good choice for non-technical users.
Hive is a fast, integrated, user-friendly Bitcoin wallet for Mac OS X. With a focus on usability, Hive is translated into many languages and has apps, making it easy to interact with your favorite Bitcoin services and merchants.
