Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word discussing build reproducibility with BitBoxApp  via their Twitter!

Do your own research!

Try out searching for "lost bitcoins", "stole my money" or "scammers" together with the wallet's name, even if you think the wallet is generally trustworthy. For all the bigger wallets you will find accusations. Make sure you understand why they were made and if you are comfortable with the provider's reaction.

If you find something we should include, you can create an issue or edit this analysis yourself and create a merge request for your changes.

The Analysis 

The description of this app reads:

A BitBox02 hardware wallet is required.

so we assume that this app does not manage private keys or send transactions if not approved via the hardware wallet. It itself is not a wallet.

Verdict Explained

This appears to not be a product to receive and send money.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Is it a wallet? If not, we tag it No Wallet 

If it’s called “wallet” but is actually only a portfolio tracker, we don’t look any deeper, assuming it is not meant to control funds. What has no funds, can’t lose your coins. It might still leak your financial history!

If you can “have” bitcoins in it but not actually receive or send them, then what really happens is that you can get exposure to the Bitcoin exchange rate but we still don’t consider it a wallet.
