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 ¶
From the looks of it, Bituro is an online rewards platform:
Earn Free Bitcoins & Gift Cards!
Complete simple tasks that are refreshed daily on offer walls or we send to your mobile phones via emails, twitter or facebook. Earn easy points and redeem for Bitcoins, Ethers (Ethereum tokens), PayPal or other gift cards.
It mentions having an ‘in-app wallet’, however it is unspecified if it can hold, send, or receive BTC.
You can also manage earned rewards with an in-app wallet.
Notably, some users have reported that they have not received points or payment from this app.
★☆☆☆☆ May 16, 2021
This app will give you the points for small tasks but will not payout the bigger amounts and when you try to email support there are problems with them receiving your email so you cant resolve any issue… conclusion, DONT USE IT.
★☆☆☆☆ September 8, 2021
Bugged. Awards points but doesn’t credit to the account. Multiple days of earning points with no change credits provided.
Coupled along with this statement from the Terms of Service:
We are not responsible for the loss of any points or rewards due to change or suspension of our services, server errors, or system failures.
We tried the app. There are surveys available for users to complete and earn points from. There is a shop where users are allowed to redeem BTC using points earned from the surveys.
$1.00 = 1,000 points
However, there is a notice:
Due to highly increased transaction fees for bitcoin mining, the mininum points requirement for bitcoin redemption has been increased to 50,000 points[…]
If you have a Coinbase wallet account, you can still redeem with 1,000 points because there will be no transaction fees charged.
This option also states that any points redeemed by users will be transferred to their bitcoin wallets.
This app does not actually hold funds as both the option to buy BTC and the option to convert points into cash say that the funds will be transferred to the user’s wallet. Thus, this app is not a wallet.
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 buy Bitcoins with this app but only into another wallet, it’s not a wallet itself.
