idk how fast it is due to regrip but I quite like using wide f moves to do inserts if I can prevent a rotation and keep the current slots where they are

Is it easier to learn 3x3 blindfolded or one handed? If blindfolded which method is the easiest?

I would say blindfolded. One-handed is harder to get good at, in my opinion. I'm learning blind now and it's easy to practise. I mean, I only remember lots of letter pairs and then I have learned it. I use the Old Pochmann method, which is the easiest but slowest. The faster method is M2 but is way harder.

Old Pochmann:

M2 (which is only for edges):

Advanced M2:
I found some other methods when browsing:

Eka & Orozco (methods):

These are the most popular methods, and Old Pochmann is the easiest. I don't know about Eka and Orozco, but for all the others M2 is the hardest. Here is a list of letter pairs and nice links you can use for memorization:
Hope this helps!

Thanks. How long do you think it will take to learn blindfolded?

The method is actually pretty easy, I mean, the setup moves are intuitive and you probably already know the T Perm and some other PLL algorithms. You have to know both J Perms (edge swapping), the R Perm (parity), the T Perm (edge swapping), the Y Perm (corner swapping). You can find it all here: How to solve the Rubik's Cube Blindfolded - Tutorial - Ruwix
I think it might take a week if you put in much effort. If you take it more easy it might take a month or so. But the hard thing is actually remembering the letters, so if you are good at remembering it'll be easy. If it's hard then it will take longer. Try it, write 20 random letters and try to remember them. Try using some techniques to master memorization. Remember two letters as one word and make up three words to one story. Just remember three short stories (2*3*3=18, a BLD solve is about 20 letters) and your cube is solved. It's as easy as that. Practise remembering letters, and you can even practise memorization without the cube, just generate some random letters and try to remember them.
Good luck!

I'm in that position of picking a new alg to learn. This time it's V perm. I don't like the one with the rotation so I'm choosing between these two
R' U R' U' R D' R' D R' U D' R2 U' R2' D R2
R' U R U' R' f' U' R U2 R' U' R U' R' f R
I can't do either quickly right now but I guess the RUD one I will mess up more on?

I’ve tried both, and the RUD one is faster for me, but drill them both and decide what’s faster for you.

Sorry if this is not one answer but here goes. I currently main this alg: R' U R U' R' f' U' R U2 R' U' R U' R' f R.
The RUD I use is R U' R U R' D R D' R U' D R2 U R2 D' R2, completely regripless and not awkward at all. It is severely underrated. I actually do the last U as a drag, but since there isn't that option I just put it as a push instead.

Use the reverse of the RUD one: R2' D' R2 U R2' U' D R D' R D R' U R U' R
