Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word, asking BitKeep Wallet Pro to support reproducible builds  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

BitKeep is the largest multi-chain wallet, which can manage thousands of digital currencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, etc., is completely decentralized, no registration is required, one-click use, a set of mnemonic manages all assets, and the data is completely own management.

  1. Super Decentralized
    No registration, one-click use. BitKeep as a window for you to know the blockchain. A set of mnemonics manages all digital currencies. The data comes from the blockchain. Just backup the mnemonics and your assets will never be lost.

could be read as “this wallet is non-custodial” but it’s not explicit. Maybe the website has more to say on that topic …

We are not sure what this claim actually does mean:

Security Guarantee
Investing tens of millions of dollars, original DESM encryption algorithm, industrial-grade encryption security, can double-check to ensure the security of your digital assets, even if a hacker invades your mobile phone, you cannot steal your assets.

As there is no source code to be found anywhere, this app is at best a non-custodial closed source wallet and as such not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

No source code found

Without public source available, this app cannot be verified!

This verdict means that we could not find any source to compile the app from. Internally the company might do everything right but as we can't verify it, there is nothing protecting the user from an exit-scam where the provider releases an app that leaks the keys to the servers.

The app cannot be independently verified. If the provider puts your funds at risk on purpose or by accident, you will probably not know about the issue before people start losing money. If the provider is more criminally inclined he might have collected all the backups of all the wallets, ready to be emptied at the press of a button. The app might have a formidable track record but out of distress or change in management turns out to be evil from some point on, with nobody outside ever knowing before it is too late.
