Shuffle: Crypto Payment WalletGoogle Play
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
From the app’s description:
Shuffle is a blockchain based multi-digital currency wallet, where users can easily send, buy, store and most importantly pay in ‘Shuffle’ points (prepaid e-money), which is backed by your local currency.
According to the site, this app supports three cryptocurrencies: BTC, ETH and the providers’ token, HPX.
We tried out the app and created an account. To create or backup a wallet, we first had to set a PIN and complete the app’s mobile verification. Upon creating a wallet, you are provided with a 24-word mnemonic phrase and asked to set a passphrase for the wallet.
Users cannot send out assets without completing KYC verification:
- Submit a photo of your passport or ID card.
- Submit a photo of your face.
We searched the linked GitHub profile, but did not find results pertaining to the wallet’s repository.
There is no indication that this product’s source code is available.

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.
