Conclusion:

Some wallets you may want to avoid and why (referenced to the feature # as listed above) are:

  • DigiByte Mobile(2,6,8,9)
  • DigiByte Go(2,5,6,9 — also currently non-functional which proves why 2 is so important)
  • Elipal(4,8)
  • Bitfi(2,3,4,8)

A few last pieces of advice:

  1. Never give your recovery phrase to anyone. With the recovery phrase all your funds can be taken. Scammers will often pretend to be tech support and try to get this phrase from you. Real support will never ask for it.
  2. Never store your recovery phrase online. Don’t take a picture of it. Don’t save it as a note. Don’t save it in a text document and change the extension to try and hide what it is. Just do not ever store it by any electronic means. Write it on paper, or punch it into metal. Offline is best.
  3. Take care to store your recovery phrase in a safe place. If you lose your recovery phrase you lose your funds. I recommend splitting the phrase up into 3 pieces like https://digibyte.rocks/seed.pdf that way you can recover with any 2 of 3 pieces. Make sure you put them in safe places where they won’t be found if you do.

References:

  1. If your curious about the standards they are BIP32,39,44,49,84
  2. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brute-force_attack#Theoretical_limits for why 256 bit is impossible. Wikipedia uses 128 bit and room temperature and finds it is doable but impractical. At 256 bit even at the background temperature of deep space you get an amount of energy exceeding the energy contained in the visible universe. Any lower temp will result in a larger energy value due to cooling requirements to achieve that temperature.
