With its user-friendly UI and easy-to-use functions, The Circle App offers a highly secure portal to access BTC and stellar blockchain tokens such as GTPLUS and GTFTA. Within this app, users can send, receive and exchange cryptocurrencies instantaneously with a few simple steps. Users can also use smart contracts and browse web-based decentralized applications (Dapps).
The Circle App uses the latest security mechanism to protect user accounts against unwanted activities by making the user’s private keys and sensitive data only available to the user’s device by utilizing special encryption algorithms. This ensures that only you can have control over your crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, GTPLUS and GTFTA. No third party including The Circle App itself can either access the user’s cryptocurrencies or restrict any transaction user would like to make. All the transactions over the circle app network are secure, safe, anonymous and instantaneous.

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.
