SecureBTCWallet is now available on Mac and Linux too
The most popular cold-wallet app for Windows desktops is now available on Mac and Linux too.
"The security of the platform comes from its limited exposure to the internet" claims the founder of the company that goes by the pseudonym Satoshi. "After the FTX scandal, it was time to bring safety and peace of mind to the ordinary internet users" he says.
The best way to provide safety and security is to hold on to your Bitcoins, and not give it to a some third party exchange, the app creators claim. To do that, the users would have to choose between multiple choices like using a hardware wallet that they would need to pay for, or use a cold-wallet. While cold-wallets are usually available on both mobile and desktop, mobile wallets are known to be prone to misuse. Thus, desktop is the only viable option if the user is not willing to pay for a hardware wallet.
"The best way to ensure security is to split your funds in multiple wallets. We do not recommend our users to put all their assets on SecureBTCWalllet. They're safer if they divide it into multiple wallets because no matter how secure the Bitcoin architecture is, one may steal your seed phrase and access your funds. So choose your seed phrase wisely, and keep do not put all your eggs in a single basket" says Nakamoto.
