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.

The Analysis


• Due to Bitcoin OX, only you are in control of your Private Keys and manage your Digital Assets

• No copies on our or public servers

• Compatible with BIP39 mnemonic code for generating deterministic keys

sounds like a non-custodial wallet but as there is no public source code linked on their Google Play description or their website. This wallet is not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

No source code found Without public source available, this app cannot be verified!

This verdict means that we could not find any source to compile the app from. Internally the company might do everything right but as we can't verify it, there is nothing protecting the user from an exit-scam where the provider releases an app that leaks the keys to the servers.

The app cannot be independently verified. If the provider puts your funds at risk on purpose or by accident, you will probably not know about the issue before people start losing money. If the provider is more criminally inclined he might have collected all the backups of all the wallets, ready to be emptied at the press of a button. The app might have a formidable track record but out of distress or change in management turns out to be evil from some point on, with nobody outside ever knowing before it is too late.
