I haven't tried this one yet - I've been taking a course on Electron in Udemy (it cost me $15 'on sale') which I won't recommend (I've had to work my way through a number of errors) and I'm not quite ready to tackle this yet (maybe by the end of my extended holiday break). In any case, you won't be building an actual Bitcoin wallet - the project is built for 'Testcoin', which is as the name suggests, a test coin that has no value. Still, looking through it, it pays quite a bit of attention to security and explores some of the details of Bitcoin transactions. (Most of the problems in the Udemy course stem from the fact that it was recorded as a set of videos in one draft, on one platform, with no mechanism for fixing problems people may have had along the way).
