New Wallet — “Exodus”

Gets A Great Review

When it comes to Bitcoin wallets, there are now several options that are popularly regarded as being the most secure and/or the easiest to use. It’s a little bit of a crowded market, much like cryptocurrency in general, but the best options are fairly widely agreed upon such as Bitcoin Core, Armory, and Electrum. However, alternatives are still being developed, and one brand new option recently got a pretty glowing write-up that caught our attention.

It’s called Exodus, and it just launched this summer.

As the review pointed out, what first stands out about Exodus when you delve into using it is its interface. It’s a consequence of the improvement of modern technology through mobile and desktop platforms that we now tend to judge programs quickly based on how beautiful they are or how smoothly they operate. This is something that the creators of Exodus appear to have been well aware of. Everything in the program is crystal clear. The different options you have when using it are self-explanatory even for those who might be unfamiliar with cryptocurrency. That and a combination of dark backgrounds, light text, and bright colors only on certain features makes for an attractive yet somewhat minimalistic appearance. Exodus is a joy to navigate.

As for where it can be used, Exodus is exclusively a desktop wallet as it currently exists, and that could be seen as a shortcoming. Considering Bitcoin wallets at large, we’ve now come to recognize that most wallet software is available on several platforms, including multiple desktop systems and mobile platforms like iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Right now, this particular option is available only through Mac, Windows, and Linux systems on desktops. However, it’s worth noting that none of these systems require you to download the entire Bitcoin blockchain in order to operate.

Aside from an attractive and intuitive interface, the best feature of Exodus may be that it actually allows you to deal with multiple cryptocurrencies interchangeably on the same platform. You can exchange Bitcoins for Altcoins and vice-versa. Additionally, you can manage any cryptocurrencies you may be involved with easily without having to open a new program, or even a new section of the main Exodus program.

You can read the full review of Exodus here, but as that article put it, Exodus looks like a complete hit. It’s easy to use, looks terrific, and it’s versatile. Also, as noted, the creators have made it clear that they’re interested in customer feedback in the early stages — which seems to guarantee refinement over time. It’s definitely a wallet worth keeping an eye on.
