Exodus is a desktop wallet designed to give you complete control over your cryptocurrency assets.
For starters, it’s the first desktop wallet that offers full compatibility with ShapeShift – a popular instant cryptocurrency exchange supporting dozens of tokens. This means Exodus users have access to nearly a dozen cryptocurrencies.
Like other desktop wallets, Exodus stores cryptocurrency assets directly on your machine. Because Exodus is a lite wallet, you never have to download the whole blockchain to your computer.
Exodus’ biggest claim to fame is its intuitive, user-friendly platform. The Exodus desktop wallet aims to give you all the bells and whistles to control an entire cryptocurrency portfolio, but it’s designed for people who have never actually used an exchange.

MEW is a client-side interface that interacts with the Ethereum blockchain. Although you can easily create new wallets in your web browser with MEW, it’s not actually an online wallet. Even though you create the wallet through the web, all of your information and your funds are stored on your computer, not on the MEW servers.
MEW combines the ease of setup provided by online wallets while eliminating many of the vulnerabilities that come with storing your funds online.
