★☆☆☆☆ October 7, 2021
Once again this application is being deliberately choked at critical times’ : it blanks out when opening a trade and blanks out when closing a trade. This is tantamount to manipulation and must be reported to the regularity authority

Bad Experience!!! Account managers persistant with encouraging a deposit, withdrawal never mentioned although it’s pending. Great Loss, different managers, somethings don’t add up. Indirect scam through friendliness!

Verdict Explained

The product can't send or receive BTC.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Can it send and receive bitcoins? If not, we tag it No send/receive 

If it is for holding BTC but you can’t actually send or receive them with this product then it doesn’t function like a wallet for BTC but you might still be using it to hold your bitcoins with the intention to convert back to fiat when you “cash out”.

All products in this category are custodial and thus funds are at the mercy of the provider.

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.
