Does anyone know what desktop wallet for ethereum is fully open source and gives you your private keys for backup to a simple file?
I don’t want to use Mist cause I don’t have the time or space to download the blockchain.
As a side note, I find it amusing that people say hardware wallets are the best. What if that device breaks? I certainly don’t have any viruses and with a desktop wallet I can backup my keys on however many different mediums I want. I actually stored my bitcoin keys on a 5.25 inch floppy disk. That may seem dumb at first, but I discovered that old untouched floppies from 1980 still read fine and are uncorrupted. They only degrade if you read them a lot. Plus, nobody can even read them anymore for the most part.
