Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word discussing build reproducibility with Simple Bitcoin Wallet  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 provider stated here that BLW: Bitcoin and Lightning Wallet Unreproducible!  was discontinued and its successor is Simple Bitcoin Wallet Development  .

This app, according to their website:

Simple Bitcoin Wallet (aka SBW) is an open-source, non-custodial, autonomous wallet for Android devices which can store, send and receive bitcoins.

This sounds good. What doesn’t sound good are the many scam accusations and bug complaints in the reviews on Play Store. The link to f-droid.org also is broken.

This app needs a more in depth review.

This product still needs to be evaluated some more. We only gathered name, logo and maybe some more details but we have not yet come to a conclusion what to make of this product.
