LiteVault wallet review

LiteVault
Very basic Ease of use,  High Privacy,  Wallet platform Private Keys Stored

LiteVault is a unique online wallet. Although like most online wallets your private keys are kept on LiteVault's servers your browser encrypts them before sending them so Litevault receives and encrypted version. The software is easy to use and the design is very simplistic. It's primary purpose is to store Litecoin but through integration with Changelly there are some extra options.

LiteVault has partnered with Changelly to allow users to buy Litecoin using their credit card or convert LTC to other altcoins (but no you will need a different wallet to store other coins). Users also have the option of Importing/Exporting keys or wallets.

What happens in the event of a disaster/theft/loss?

All funds in the wallet are lost.

The LiteVault team can assist with lost authenticators or other forms of 2FA, but if you lose both your password and private keys, the funds are lost. The service however relies on the community to keep alive and still has bugs that makes it recommended mainly to experienced users.

Summary:

LiteVault relies on the community to keep it alive through donations for covering development time and server costs. Unfortunately, the project still has bugs that an inexperienced user might not be able to handle. As for experienced users, we recommend this wallet mainly for sending/receiving LTC with suggest that you should also take advantage of the option to export your keys.
