What site should I use to create a Bitcoin wallet?


I wanted to create Bitcoin wallet but I saw there are a lot of websites or software to create it. It's not like paypal. I am thinking to chose Blockchain. Is it good? How to check if it's legal in my country?

I wouldn't recommend Jaxx wallet since, several weeks ago, it was found exploitable, giving an attacker the possibility to retrive your 12 words seed . Usually, you choose a service that gives you the full control and ownership of keys. Blockchain.info doesn't give you this option. Some service I would recommend are GreenAddress and Samurai Wallet.

I am using Jaxx! I think it is good, because is platform agnostic and handle different digital currencies.

Jaxx had security issues just weeks ago and they shrugged them off stating that they're satisfied with their security concept. See e.g.: https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/users-report-losing-400000-due-to-jaxx-wallet-vulnerability/ I don't think they're a good recommendation at this time.

@Murch what could be the best option, into the security perspective? – m3_stackoverflow – 2017-07-02T18:10:27.860

I prioritize security over features. I've used Bitcoin Core, Bitcoin Wallet App and Mycelium in the past. I've heard good things about Electrum and GreenAddress. Unfortunately, I don't have experience with any multicoin wallets. – Murch – 2017-07-02T18:38:11.203
