These are the services that hold your bitcoins in an eWallet. Some revenue-sharing sites such as BitcoinService use an eWallet simply as the bucket to hold bitcoins earned by the account holder. Others services allow bitcoins to be deposited as well as withdrawn.

Storing your bitcoins with an eWallet is trusting that the operator will not abscond with your bitcoins, that sufficient competence for running such a service exists and that the the service is secure from attacks.
