There are many different types of Bitcoin wallets, each with its own pros and cons. If you are just getting into Bitcoin, we recommend downloading a free mobile wallet to test out (we like Blockstream Green). As you learn more about Bitcoin, you will want to move your Bitcoin into more and more secure setups that do cost money or are less user-friendly.
In short, if you have:
Small amounts (~0.1% net worth) — use a Mobile Bitcoin Wallet
- Blockstream Green — Probably the best bitcoin wallet for iPhone (also works on Android)
Medium Amounts (~1-10% net worth) — use a Hardware Bitcoin Wallet
Large amounts (more than 10%+ net worth) — use a Multisig Bitcoin Wallet
- Casa Keymaster Multisig — More advanced privacy features
- Unchained Capital’s Multisig — Good customer service and easy to use interface.
