Can I use Ethereum multisig wallets with parity?

Parity is not officially affiliated with the Ethereum network. However, because of its popularity, many people might confuse the two. Let’s clear up the differences between the two so you can understand which one to use.

Parity And The Ethereum Network

The first thing to point out is that Parity is not an Ethereum wallet. It is a separate application that makes using the Ethereum network much easier. Like many other applications on the market, Parity is open source, which means it is free and anyone can take a look at the files to see how it works.

This decentralized nature makes it much more secure than traditional point-of-sale (POS) systems designed by financial institutions that keep users‘ funds in cookie jars. It also makes it more secure than storing Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies on a traditional Web hosting service because those services are more vulnerable to hacks. When a hacker breaks in and gains access to a Bitcoin wallet or Ethereum wallet on a traditional Web hosting service, the entire cryptocurrency is at risk.

Parity Versus The Ethereum Wallet

The Ethereum Wallet is officially endorsed by Ethereum and is the application that you use to interact with the decentralized Ethereum network. Unfortunately, The Ethereum Wallet is not open source, which means anyone can’t peek at the code to see how it works or identify any vulnerabilities. You can download the Ethereum Wallet from the official website or from Github if you’d like to take a peek at the code yourself. Once you have the application installed on your device, you can use the wallet’s PIN to access your funds. The same holds true for other types of multisig wallets like MyEtherWallet etc. Your funds are always protected by a hardware or software wallet (depending on which one you use) and are never stored on a server.

Why Is Parity So Popular?

Parity is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies because it is easy to use. We already mentioned the fact that it is open source, but there is also a learning curve associated with it. For beginners, Parity can serve as a gateway to the more complex world of decentralized networks because it has a very simple user interface. As you might imagine, this makes it very accessible to users who are completely new to cryptocurrency. Once you get your bearings in Parity, you can move on to learning about other cryptocurrencies and their unique features.

If you have a specific reason for wanting to use a particular cryptocurrency, it’s better to learn about it through an officially endorsed wallet or a highly recommended exchange because, generally speaking, the more established a wallet or exchange is, the more trustworthy it is. As more people get familiar with cryptocurrency, the more likely they are to hear about new coins and whether or not they are worth using. This is why many people use Parity for experimenting with different coins because it is so easy to use and, as we mentioned, very popular.

The Downsides Of Using Parity

While we love the fact that Parity is so popular and easy to use, there are some downsides to using it. One downside is that because it is not affiliated with the Ethereum network, it is not a part of the ecosystem. As a result, you cannot send Ether or other Ethereum network-related coins or tokens to other users through Parity. The same is true if you try to send Bitcoin or other coins through the Parity wallet because it has no connection to the Bitcoin network. This makes it less convenient for people who want to actively participate in the Bitcoin community.

Another downside to using Parity is that because it is not a part of the Ethereum network, it does not enjoy all of the same benefits that come with being an active participant in the Ethereum community. For example, you cannot create smart contracts or decentralized applications (dApps) with it. If you try to do so, you will get an error stating that the program is not allowed to make that kind of transaction. This is because there is no one governing body that controls and monitors the use of the Parity wallet like there is for the entire Ethereum network. This makes it more vulnerable to fraud and, ultimately, less secure.

Parity And Multi-sig Wallets

We should also point out that Parity is the best choice for people who want to use multi-sig wallets. These are wallets that require multiple people to access the funds in them. For instance, if you have a Parity wallet containing 100 ETH, you can set up a configuration where only three people need to access the wallet to authorize a transaction. In the case of a two-of-three multisig wallet, if anyone attempts to make a transaction that doesn’t match the signature of the other two owners, the system will alert the users that the funds are being accessed by an unauthorized person. This prevents the single point of failure that commonly comes with single-sig wallets where any single person can access the wallet and make transactions with the funds contained therein. In the case of two-of-three wallets or more, there is no single point of failure because at least two of the people needed to access the wallet have to approve the transaction before it can be completed.

There is also the option for users to set up a passphrase that will be required to access their funds in case they forget their wallet’s PIN. When creating a wallet, you will be asked to enter a passphrase that will be required to unlock the wallet in the event that you forget the PIN. Once you have done so, you will be given a wallet id and a wallet address that can be used to send and receive Ether and other coins or tokens. From that moment on, you can use the wallet to store, send, and receive funds as much as you like without having to remember the PIN or the passphrase. This is a great security feature for people who store a lot of funds in their wallet because it takes all the worry out of remembering or writing down sensitive information like passwords and PINs.

Which One Should You Use?

Ultimately, it depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re new to cryptocurrency and want an easy way to make transactions, it makes sense to use the Parity wallet. Alternatively, if you want to become more active in the Bitcoin community, you should use one of the multisig wallets that support sending Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to other users. People who want to store a lot of funds should use the Ethereum wallet because, as we mentioned, it is very easy to set up and allows for very high security. If you want to send smaller amounts of funds and are worried about the security of your wallet, you can use the Parity wallet because it is very secure and has all the features you need to make simple transactions. Finally, if you want to use a specific cryptocurrency that is not supported by the Parity wallet, you should look into other multisig wallets that support sending that specific coin or token to other users. In any case, Parity is a very secure and easy to use application and we recommend it to anyone who is looking for a wallet to use.
