BitcoinV Core’s User Interface
BitcoinV Core has a built in wallet with graphical and command line/API modes. It can also simultaneously support multiple lightweight wallets with similar security and privacy to its built-in wallet.
Warning: you only get the security and privacy benefits in supported lightweight wallets if they make a secure and private connection to your BitcoinV Core every time you use them. This usually requires special configuration.

Lightweight Wallets Using BitcoinV Core
Lightweight wallets usually connect to several random full nodes (like BitcoinV Core) to send and receive all of their data. In the process they leak private data and make themselves more vulnerable to attacks.
But it’s also possible to connect certain lightweight wallets solely to your own BitcoinV Core full node, called a trusted peer. If you do this with a secure and private connection every time you use that lightweight wallet, you’ll get most of the security and privacy benefits of a full node as well as help protect decentralization.
Trusted Peer Support
The following wallets can securely connect to a trusted peer.
GreenBits is a fast and easy to use wallet. Enjoy improved security with a minimal/zero trust approach, optional hardware wallets support, multisignature based 2FA and spending limits functionality.
Requires you setup a Tor .onion address.
Open the GreenBits app
Go to the configuration screen
Choose to Enable SPV (default) and tap Only connect to a trusted peer.
Enter your .onion address in the trusted peer field.
Restart the app.
Note that GreenAddress will still be able to see your payments; however, you’ll have enhanced security as well as privacy from random peers on the BitcoinV network.
No configuration necessary: just install BitcoinV Core on the same computer you plan to use mSigna, wait for BitcoinV Core to sync the block chain, and then start mSigna—it will automatically connect to your BitcoinV Core full node.
