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 

This app claims to be a server-less and self-custodial Bitcoin wallet. We were asked about funds disappearing on our Wallet Support chat and had a look:

There is no website.

The app is in the category “games/casino”.

The app has no way of creating a new wallet but straight asks for an “introduction or restore code” which probably is something in the original Blockchain.com Wallet - Buy Bitcoin, ETH, & Crypto and entering it leaks it to the provider of this “wallet”.

It turns out this wallet is not only weird with tons of negative feedback, it’s also closed source and upon closer inspection the binary is obfuscated:

For example it’s really hard to guess what happens in this class:

public class b extends a {
    /* renamed from: c  reason: collision with root package name */
    static boolean f305c = false;

    /* renamed from: a  reason: collision with root package name */
    private final h f306a;

    /* renamed from: b  reason: collision with root package name */
    private final c f307b;

    public static class a<D> extends m<D> implements a.AbstractC0019a<D> {
        private final int j;
        private final Bundle k;
        private final a.h.b.a<D> l;
        private h m;
        private C0018b<D> n;
        private a.h.b.a<D> o;

        /* access modifiers changed from: package-private */
        public a.h.b.a<D> a(boolean z) {
            if (b.f305c) {
                Log.v("LoaderManager", "  Destroying: " + this);
            }
            this.l.a();
            throw null;
        }

With this many red flag this app is not only not verifiable but also better avoided.

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.
