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 2021-07-26: The provider features several apps that either through their logo or the name try to resemble trusted wallets like Bitcoin Wallet (Schildbach) or Blockchain.com Wallet - Buy Bitcoin, ETH, & Crypto . Given other issues with the products, we assume they are fakes.

We list the following apps of this provider:

As so far all others were obfuscated, we jump straight into jadx and sure enough:

public static final a.EnumC0487a c;
public static final a.EnumC0487a d;
public static final z e = z.i("https://wallet.schildbach.de/fees");

/* renamed from: f  reason: collision with root package name */
public static final String f254f = (Character.toString(8776) + (char) 8201);
public static final MonetaryFormat g = new MonetaryFormat().e().d(2).f(new int[0]);
public static final f.g.c.d.b h = f.g.c.d.b.c.e();
public static final Coin i;
public static final d0 j;
public static final y1.f.b k = c.c(o.class);

This app appears to be based on Bitcoin Wallet (Schildbach) and it is clearly obfuscated. Obfuscation is a huge red flag and we urge you not to trust this app with your funds.

Verdict Explained

The product mimics a popular competitor!

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Is this product the original? If not, we tag it Fake! 

The bigger wallets often get imitated by scammers that abuse the reputation of the product by immitating its name, logo or both.

Immitating a competitor is a huge red flag and we urge you to not put any money into this product!

The product 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 product 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.
