    the irs requested the records of every coinbase customers for the past 3 years so if you are a big gambler who wants to hide gambling revenue then you should avoid coinbase.

    Has anyone used the Samurai bitcoin wallet yet? Their main aim is to make bitcoin transactions more stealthy and private so they sound like they would be a prefect fit for online gamblers. Their whole Is it available on iOS yet?

    It's still just in Alpha release unfortunately. It seems to have been in development for years now. They really need to release at least a beta version soon or someone else will release a privacy focused app and steal their thunder. Android users can now download the Alpha version. There is no iOS app to test yet.

    GreenAddress is the best wallet for those who are a little bit tech savvy. Here's why...
    1. GreenAddress lets you connect to your own node in SPV mode, which is far more secure.
    2. You can specify your own fee which is useful if you are in a hurry to deposit money at a gambling site and need to be included in the next block.
    3. GreenAddress is owned by BlockStream so they have the brightest minds in the crypto space working for them.
    4. They support replace-by-fee so if your transaction gets stuck, you can increase the fee to unstick it.

    Has anyone used the DigitialBitbox hardware wallet https://digitalbitbox.com? Looks pretty minimal but cool. Is it as secure as Ledger or Trezor?

    It doesn't have a screen so I don't think I'd recommend it as wholeheartedly as I'd recommend either the Ledger Nano or the Trezor hardware wallets. The company was founded by Jonas Schnelli, who is one of the Core Developers, so is highly respected. Worth buying if you are a more advanced users who doesn't need a screen.

  9. Blockchain.info has been run by an idiot called Peter Smith for the past few years. The blockchain.info wallet has been hacked a number of times and is extremely insecure. Invest in a hardware wallet like Ledger Nano or a Trezor.
