BTC.com is an online wallet launched in 2016 by Bitmain. It is open source and secure online wallet just like blockchain.info it allows users to send, receive and store your bitcoins. It runs across Web and both iOS and Android devices.
BTC.com just like blockchain.info is a HD hybrid wallet, wait what is that? well, it stores your coins online but the security keys are stored in your hardware’s cache memory so that BTC.com can also not access it.
Signing UP and UI
The UI(user interface) is also amazing and let’s say ideal for beginner users.
The sign-up process is pretty easy and basic first of all go to BTC.com. It will have a wallet menu on top and you will be redirected to another page where it will ask you for email and password same old stuff it has a password protection intellisense where it would tell you about how long would it take someone to crack down your password.
After signing up it will generate a bitcoin recovery sheet if you have used blockchain.info it is same like that but if you are new recovery sheet has some words and phrases in case you forget your passwords your recovery sheet will help recover your account with all of the coins in it. So BTC.com will make you download it and keep it offline.
Here is a pictorial representation of the sign-up process.
