Our wallet review process
We examine wallets starting at the code level and continue all the way up to the finished app that lives on your device. Provided below is an outline of each of these steps along with security tips for you and general test results.
Application build test result
This app’s social media support is rather odd. The Twitter account appears to constantly retweet posts from a seemingly unrelated homescreen decoration service called Tile Widget. The Play Store reviews are very strange, with scam or review bombing accusations thrown around.

bad app and not good in support team

Same User write this :) You are so so so bad abusers in our service.
For the actual app, there’s no clear information in the description about what it’s meant to be used for.
We have reduced the inconvenient phase in Deposit/Withdrawing. Save your withdrawal address, choose it immediately, and just send it.
It appears to be possible to send and receive BTC. Notably, nothing is mentioned about security or self-custody.
We installed the app. Upon trying to create a BTC wallet, we chose the option to “generate an address.” However this only resulted in an error message claiming:
not suppoort coin [sic]
Some features of the app are restricted and require KYC certification first. This includes identity verification.
② Certification and normal use of the service
- The following information shall be collected for the customer certification for the payment, deposit and withdrawal and security enforcement etc Name, Date of birth, Gender, Photo of the person holing the identification card (Name, Date of birth and other information masking), customer verification using the cell phone (Name, date of birth, cell phone number), Identification card(Resident registration card, driver’s license, Passport) (Name, Date of birth and remaining information masking)
Due to the lack of self-custody and the use of KYC, it is safe to assume that this app is custodial and thus not verifiable.

Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
