I had to create this post here since a lot of Maidsafecoin holders seem to be confused about what wallet to use and which one is the most secure.
Everyone seems to be recommending Omniwallet, which is a pretty decent web wallet, offering client side encryption, that allows the users to hold the private key. It also allows you to backup the wallet and store it offline but it’s still a website.
The best and more secure wallet, however, is Omnicore, which is an offline wallet based on the Bitcoin-qt wallet that’s been heavily modified. I’m surprised how none of the devs have mentioned this to new users. This is the most secure and best way to hold Maidsafe without messing around with holding it in some Bitcoin only wallet.
There is a crazy amount of Maidsafecoins held on Poloniex. Please move your coins to a safe wallet, preferably an offline wallet.
http://www.omnilayer.org/ - “Get Started” is where you can download Omnicore from. The downside is that it downloads the whole Bitcoin blockchain, +100GB in size but that’s about the size of a modern video game so it’s not the end of the world. Here is a direct link http://www.omnilayer.org/download.html#download
