Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word discussing build reproducibility with Xapo  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.

If you find something we should include, you can create an issue or edit this analysis yourself and create a merge request for your changes.

The Analysis 

Update 2021-08-02: Xapo discontinued this app to migrate its users to Xapo Bank Custodial!  .

Xapo describes itself as a wallet:

We’re a digital wallet that allows you to easily and safely send, receive, store and spend any traditional currencies and bitcoin.

but under closer investigation, we can’t find any Bitcoin wallet here. Naming “traditional currencies” and “bitcoin” in the same security claim sound like it has to be custodial.

Their website on security is not claiming otherwise neither which makes us conclude: This app is not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

This product went out of business ... or so. Read the analysis for details.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Is the product still supported by the still existing provider? If not, we tag it Defunct! 

Discontinued products or worse, products of providers that are not active anymore, are problematic, especially if they were not formerly reproducible and well audited to be self-custodial following open standards. If the provider hasn’t answered inquiries for a year but their server is still running or similar circumstances might get this verdict, too.
