Armory is a desktop application for Bitcoin funds management.

It is a full-featured Bitcoin wallet management application which aims to combine the two characteristics of wallets previously perceived as mutually exclusive: security and usability.

It comes with a set of unique features not available in any other client, although it is possible to use its split interface to choose "standard" mode which is devoid of some information people new to Bitcoin may consider excessive.

Features

  • Unlimited number of wallets - Armory was designed from the start to support multi-wallet operations without limit on number.
  • Dialogue option to print paper backup when creating wallet.
  • Watching-only wallets - there is a possibility of forking a “watching-only” wallet that contains no private-key data, but can still be used generate addresses and confirm payments.
  • Wallet-update logic guarantees all atomic file operations. The system will automatically recover user's wallets after any power failures or extremely rare-but-possible RAM/HDD errors.
