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 

Update 2021-06-24: This app is back on Google Play but given the app is the one app we got most support requests about, from people that believe it’s a scam and given their latest comments remain scam accusations, we return to the defunct verdict, assuming it doesn’t work as intended. If you think that is a mistake, please open an issue in our GitLab.

Update 2021-01-15: This app is not on Google Play anymore

Bcoiner - Free Bitcoin Wallet does not share clear information it looks custodial and absent source code it is definitely not verifiable.

Other observations

  • The ratings are … suspicious. Blocks of 5 star and 1 star claiming 5 star are fake and scam accusations.

Verdict Explained

This app went out of business ... or so. Read the analysis for details.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Is the product still supported by the still existing provider? If not, we tag it Defunct!  

Discontinued products or worse, products of providers that are not active anymore, are problematic, especially if they were not formerly reproducible and well audited to be self-custodial following open standards. If the provider hasn’t answered inquiries for a year but their server is still running or similar circumstances might get this verdict, too.
