I hold about half of my maid on there on was wondering how secure/reliable is omniwallet.org
In omniwallet you can “backup” your maid as a privatekey (share this privatekey with no one)
If you make this backup please don’t store it on your computer.
with the privatekey you no longer have to depend on a third party (omniwallet).
Yeah but this still doesn’t solve the hacking or them going rogue side of things if they or hacker decide to send my coins to some private address
You can send your coins to a new private address, this solves both the problem of them getting hacked or going rogue. I’ve been in the cryptospace since 2011, unfortunately that doesn’t mean that I know anything. And honestly nobody can tell you if something is secure/reliable, nobody is an expert.
Not to make you depress, but malware can be on your computer right now without you even realizing it. Just do what you think is best, because at the end everything boils down to own responsibility.
Yes it is best for long term to send most if not all coins to one or more “paper wallets” (addresses). This way no one can hack or steal them assuming you created your address keys properly. (eg offline bitaddress.org)
Also it is unlikely they will go rouge as they would suffer court action in a huge way. A hacker might be a problem. But if you use omni core rather than the web omniwallet.org then its all in your hands isn’t it.
Would be awesome if someone could confirm this
I ran omni-wallet a while ago when I wanted to move what MAID I had into new addresses.
What exactly do you need confirmed. It seemed a pretty self evident statement based on bitcoin blockchain existing into the future.
