Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word discussing build reproducibility with Crypto App - Widgets, Alerts, News, Bitcoin Prices  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 

From their official website:

The Crypto App Team would like to announce that The Crypto App Wallet will be discontinued on August 20th, 2021. All other services within The Crypto App remain operational.

As the rest of the app’s services will remain after the wallet’s discontinuation, it will be labeled nowallet.


Verdict Explained

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 “have” bitcoins in it but not actually receive or send them, then what really happens is that you can get exposure to the Bitcoin exchange rate but we still don’t consider it a wallet.
