Help spread awareness for build reproducibility
Please help us spread the word discussing build reproducibility with Quicrypto: Earn Crypto & Free Bitcoin 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.
The Analysis ¶
Update 2021-06-21: This app is not a wallet.
We are using Points as user balance to emphasize that Quicrypto is not a wallet or a monetary service provider.
Verdict: This is not a wallet that holds bitcoins.
Update 2021-04-25: This app is not on Google Play anymore. It wasn’t a wallet anyway.
This app “pays” you in Bitcoin and Nano for tasks
What is Quicrypto?
Quicrypto is a “reward app” that allows its users to earn money (in the form of the Nano cryptocurrency) by watching ads and completeing offers.
and one of the early tasks appears to be to give a five star rating:
What a scam.Unfortunatelly people still fall for it and the only reason it has a good rating is because they promise you a some coins for it.Do not download this useless virus app.
They also have instructions on how to get a wallet, so … it’s not a wallet itself.
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
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!
