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.
The Analysis ¶
This app refers to Bitcoin.org as it’s website, which is highly suspicious for anybody knowing how the bitcoin.org team “ticks”.
The last update of this wallet was 2017.
The latest user comments all report lost funds.
The provider answered to the highest rated such one-star comment:
login to same account using the AIRBITZ wallet, Bitcoin Pay is the receiving point of sale app, it doesn’t allow sending of funds, only accepting, this allows any waiter, point of sale or employee to accept BTC for the business without having access to those funds
implying a common provider with AIRBITZ in a way asking to enter Airbitz credentials in this wallet???
At the risk of being paranoid this smells too much like a scam with zero accountability to not call it defunct.
This product did not get updated in over two years.
As part of our Methodology, we ask:Was the product updated during the last two years? If not, we tag it Obsolete!
Bitcoin wallets are complex products and Bitcoin is a new, advancing technolgy. Projects that don’t get updated in a long time are probably not well maintained. It is questionable if the provider even has staff at hands that is familiar with the product, should issues arise.
This verdict may not get applied if the provider is active and expresses good reasons for not updating the product.
