Exodus Portable, all-in-one wallet to secure, manage and exchange blockchain assets!
"Good interface with powerful charting tools... it is not open source... Lack of two-factor authentication, which has raised some security concerns." — (13 November 2018)
"Exodus is the first desktop multi-asset wallet with ShapeShift built in. Which means that you can exchange cryptocurrency directly in the wallet without the need for use of the exchange. ... Note that transactions fees are applied for exchange and transfer of currencies via the wallet. There were reports that Exodus fees are higher than of the competition." —Torsten Hartmann, (May 5, 2018)
"On the Exodus Wallet, each network fee is automatically worked out for you. This is great for basic users. However, the fees are often much larger than they need to be. Exodus wallet fees are set up to transfer as quickly as possible, not as cheaply as possible. ...prevents me from recommending it for anyone but beginners in crypto or those wanting a convenient wallet for low amounts of money. It’s just not secure enough to store a serious amount of cryptocurrency on." —Ray King, (April 9th, 2018)
