Off-line wallet (paper wallet) with encryption for long-term storage.

For short-term holds and movement of BTC, I really like Mycellium.  They also have a great mobile wallet.

I personally like Electrum. its a lite-wallet and doesn't require your hard drive to have the whole blockchain like Bitcoin Core

I had/still have Armory Secure Bitcoin wallet on my lower powered debian mid tower. It was full of features, including cold storage and paper wallet. I set-up a paper wallet. Nice GUI.

But it took a bitch of time to sync with the whole bitcoin blockchain. And occasionally it would lock up, and I would have to restart it. A few of times I had to reset all the databases to refresh and resync, and once I had to reinstall.

Seemed a bit resource hungry, but then again it was a full feature set.

I also have a web BTC wallet with blockchain.info, which for a web wallet seems fairly secure. This in regards to a exchange wallet (like MtGox).

I also have a wallet on my mobile, but consider that quite insecure. So not much kept on the mobile - a coffee and a meal for two.

Of course I have the standard official Linux LTC wallet, downloaded from litecoin.org.

Hi,
As the topic mention which bitcoin/litecoin wallet do you think is the most secure to keep your coins?

Private keys have to be kept offline using air gapped cold storage.

Bitcoin:
Litecoin:
  • Electrum for Litecoin cold storage
