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.
From the description:
You can store, send and receive your Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), EOS, TRON (TRX), IOST, Cosmos and Biance (BNB) easily.
so it’s a BTC wallet and according to the following also self-custodial and open source:
Features of the Multi-Crypto Wallet
- An open-sourced decentralized wallet, keep your cryptocurrencies safe
• It is an open-sourced and non-custodial decentralized wallet that stores your private keys on users’ device, you can store, send and receive all your tokens within the wallet.
And indeed, on their website we can find a link to their repository on GitHub.
A quick look at the code though reveals several issues:
- Minification is a sort of obfuscation and they minify.
applicationIdis not vip.mytokenpocket.
- The repository was last active two years ago while the app on Google Play was last updated two weeks ago.
- The description sounds very different to the Play Store description:
Only supports SWTC Blockchain for now, we will support Ethereum Blockchain and so on in the future.
So for now we have to file it as “no source” and recommend to be careful as some things don’t add up. At least the “open source” claim is probably false. In any case the app is not verifiable as is.
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.
