Best desktop wallet?
#1
Question 
I know the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet should be very secure and reliable. It support multiple cryptos.

If you want a hot desktop wallet that supports multiple cryptos like the Nano S what is the best choice?

Desktop wallet: Exodus
I plan to purchase "ledger blue", but due to unexpected success it is not available at this moment. No idea when it will be in stock again.

Thanks Hugues. I have been looking at Exodus but it depends on their nodes and you have to trust them. You should also know that your wallet is ONLY protected by a password and not multi-seg/two-step! I don't dare to use the wallet for larger amounts.

"Can I trust these guys?
Unfortunately, Exodus is not 100% open-source, so you’ll be putting your trust into the developers and management team by using their wallet. However, the CTO, JP Richardson, has created over 190 open source libraries and is highly trusted within the development community.

As a young company, Exodus has not had the time to implement the security features that many other wallets include. Your blockchain assets are fully encrypted but are only protected by a password. There’s no two-factor authentication which exposes you to more risk if you inadvertently download malware or a malicious software program.

The company actually recommends that you use a different wallet with either multi-sig (like Copay) or a hardware component (like Ledger) if you’re planning on storing large amounts of blockchain assets.

The Exodus team is aware of their security flaws and is currently talking with hardware providers to begin improving these weaknesses."

That's correct. The wallet is not complete yet, but I have a lot of trust in this company and its team. they still have a lot to do.
See the roadmap: http://support.exodus.io/article/96-exod...et-roadmap

I believe till now there is no better desktop wallet.

Maybe these:

It's maybe the most user friendly wallet but I don't dare to use it. The wallet is not open source so in case something happens to them then probably no one has access to their network.

I would better choose security over ease of use... but that's me. Wink

Thanks for letting us know. Sadly it says "Soon" for some of the interesting coins:

Ripple, Stellar, Monero and Amon. MinexCoin is not on the list.

Do they write when "Soon" is?
