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
The original description is in Russian and has been translated to English. It claims that this wallet is self-custodial and that it provides the private keys to the wallet owners.
Win Wallet is a decentralized multi-currency crypto wallet for iOS. Information about private keys and passwords is kept only by wallet owners. The exchange takes place directly between users. The system cannot influence the process or steal funds.
It’s a small website with no mentions of source code or any social media links. From the homepage:
We do not store users’ cryptocurrency and fiat on our platforms, we do not have access to users’ wallets and passwords, we do not store information about users’ on our servers. We will continue to adhere to this concept in any market realities.
There’s no information on the website concerning the source code or a Github account or repository.
We downloaded the app to test it out. We were asked to set a 5-digit PIN to access the app. We were able to successfully create a BTC wallet, as well as backup the 12-word mnemonic. This app also lets you send and receive.
This is a self-custodial app, meaning that you are in control of the keys. On the other hand, searching their appID ‘com.wise.llc.wallet.app’ on Github does not return relevant results. With nothing to be found about source code, we conclude that this app is not verifiable.

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.
