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 

App Description

Bottrex is not an exchange or wallet, it is a trading bot. It connects to exchanges via API.

Bottrex is a trading robot that trades Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies on the world’s largest exchanges.

The app description even lists exchanges that this bot functions on:

Automate your trading on the main market exchanges: Binance, Bittrex, Huobi, HitBTC, Kucoin, Bitfinex, OKEX, BitcoinTrade, NovaDAX and FTX.

Here’s a tutorial on how to connect Bottrex with huobi.

This is not a wallet.


Verdict Explained

This appears to not be a product to receive and send money.

As part of our Methodology, we ask:

Is it a wallet? If not, we tag it No Wallet 

If it’s called “wallet” but is actually only a portfolio tracker, we don’t look any deeper, assuming it is not meant to control funds. What has no funds, can’t lose your coins. It might still leak your financial history!

If you can buy Bitcoins with this app but only into another wallet, it’s not a wallet itself.
