Recently ripplelabs have stopped supporting the distribution of their downloadable ripple wallet… Im guessing their move to do this is because they want everyone to your rippletrade. I have choosen not to continue to use rippletrade wallet because of addtional KYC/AML policy that ripplelabs have implemented…in basic terms they want to verify you as a user and request ID when using their ripple wallet.
i personally dont want to give my ID to ripplelabs just to use their wallet so i decide to use the downloadable ripple wallet instead…it has all the same functionality as rippletrade the oonly difference is that your wallet is stored locally on your computer.
I think in terms of security as long as you have a good complex password for your ripple wallet then hosting it on your own pc is pretty safe.
So for anyone wanting to download a ripple wallet you can download it from here. Ripplelabs no longer have the client available for download which is just stupid really !!
Once you have downloaded a ripple wallet you will be one step closer to owning a the digital asset XRP. For those unsure how to obtain Ripple XRP you can check out my guide How to buy Ripples.
