<h3>Setting up a Wallet:</h3>
<a href="https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet" target="_blank">Choose your wallet here</a>
<br>You'll note that there are a variety of options.
<br>My wallet recommendations:
<br>
<ul>
<li>Hardware wallet (best security): <a href="https://shop.trezor.io" target="_blank">Trezor</a> or <a href="https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/ledger-nano-s" target="_blank">Ledger Nano S</a></li>
<li>Desktop wallet: <a href="https://electrum.org/#home" target="_blank">Electrum</a></li>
<li>Android wallet: <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.samourai.wallet" target="_blank">Samourai Wallet</a></li>
<li>iPhone wallet: <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1206035886" target="_blank">GreenAddress</a></li>
<li>Web wallet: <a href="https://www.bitgo.com/" target="_blank">BitGo</a></li>
</ul>
<span class="footer">Note that it is NOT recommended that Bitcoin newcomers use the Bitcoin Core wallet. The Core wallet is much more resource intensive than other wallets and will not function properly unless it is running constantly on an active Internet connection.</span>
