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
BlackFort Wallet & Exchange is a secure client-side Wallet Application that allows its users to Buy/Sell and store as well as send and receive cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, DASH, XRP, Litecoin, USDT, BXF and all ERC20 Tokens in one place.
BlackFort Wallet is a one-stop platform. Users who are looking for a simple and intuitive experience of using crypto with advanced client-side security as well as the possibility to exchange and buy/sell crypto in a few simple steps then BlackFort Wallet is your partner.
With BlackFort Wallet the user is in full control of their funds. Private keys are stored on the device and never leave it, protected by a 12-word mnemonic phrase to prevent any unauthorised access to the funds. The user can also use their phone’s native security features to lock the Wallet application for the extra layer of protection. A passcode or the biometric security unlock can be used.
The first options allowed users to create a new wallet or to restore. It then asked us to register. It then provided the 12-word backup phrase. It supports multiple cryptocurrencies including BTC.
BlackFort Wallet is a self-custodial app. However, we could not find any information on whether it has accessible source-code. There was no reference to open source on their website nor a link to Github. For due diligence, we searched on Github for their appID ‘exchange.blackfort.wallet’ and yielded 0 results. Searching on Google for “Blackfort wallet source code” also did not return anything relevant. We also asked them on twitter.
We conclude that this app’s source code is not publicly available, therefore it cannot be verified.

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.
