Platforms

Exodus is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS. In addition to all these, it is possible to synchronize your wallet on your computer and mobile. The same also applies to Atomic Wallets.

Atomic Wallet is available for:

● iOS

● Android

● Windows

● macOS

● Debian

● Ubuntu

● Fedora

Both wallets are in English and give you the private keys encrypted in the 12 seeds that you must copy handwritten and keep safe places to retrieve the wallets if necessary.

Atomic pays 20% per year for staking its AWC token, a very interesting proposal.

An important security point to keep in mind is that when the account is created in Exodus, you click on “Create wallet,” It will direct you to the main menu with the tokens and portfolio. From there, you have to go to settings and copy your seed words (12 seeds) on a piece of paper, in addition to establishing a 6-digit numeric password.

On the other hand, the installation process in Atomic Wallet is different because it first makes you enter an alphanumeric password and automatically shows you the 12 seeds you must copy on a certain piece of paper. Be careful with this because the application shows them directly to you, so if you can disconnect from the internet and make sure you are not recording the screen or taking screenshots of the seeds.

Finally, keep in mind that to exchange tokens in Atomic Wallet, it asks for a minimum of 0.0238548 ETH (and its equivalent in other tokens such as BTC and ADA). On the other hand, in Exodus, there is also a minimum that changes according to market fluctuations.

Wallet Fees

Apart from the network fees, Exodus doesn’t charge fees for receiving or sending cryptocurrencies. Atomic Wallet charges a 2% fee and a minimum of $10 for each operation.

Atomic allows purchases with cards (it charges a fee of 5%, a minimum of $10, and is not valid for Argentina).

Differences between Exodus and Atomic Wallet

The fundamental difference lies in the type of bitcoin public address that both wallets generate.

When a new wallet is opened in Atomic, it uses public BTC addresses starting with 1; instead, Exodus uses BTC addresses starting at bc1. This is important to clarify:

The legacy addresses of bitcoin begin with 1 or 3, whereas the SegWit (segregated witness) begin with bc1 and are the latest technology.

The first bitcoin wallets were standard addresses (P2PKH: pay 2 public key hash) that started with the number 1, then in 2012, Gavin Andresen proposed the BIP 16 enhancement for the new multi-signature wallets (P2SH: pay 2 script hash) and they are distinguished because it starts with the number 3.

There is a boom in HD (hierarchical deterministic: hierarchical deterministic or SegWit ) wallets, and they have greater security. These usually start with bc1. These wallets are perfect because they generate an initial phrase known as a seed or mnemonic phrase that serves to recover the wallet on any device in case of loss or theft.

It may happen that some exchanges do not accept transfers from a SegWit (bc1) address and only receive funds from addresses 1 or 3.
