Pros & Cons

  • Relatively simple to use, as long as you understand basic security measures and don’t accidentally compromise your own private key or fail to make a backup.
  • You can control your own private key completely, putting you in charge of your own funds.
  • With the client-side application and multiple wallet creation, there is high anonymity and privacy.
  • The software is fully open-source.
  • MyEther only supports Ethereum transactions.
  • MyEther can be vulnerable to browser extension hacks, Java hacks, and phishing emails, so the user has to be alert about all the possible ways their funds can be accessed.
  • You need to buy a hardware wallet, or use a slightly complex method of completing transactions offline in order to stay secure.
