The Analysis 

(Analysis from Android review)

⚠️ Warning ⚠️

🚩 There are several “unverifiable” third-party sources that give us pause as we are scrutinizing this. We strongly urge users to exercise maximum caution when using this app.

Some of the reviews claim that this app is involved with Morris Coin, a cryptocurrency allegedly involved in a Ponzi scheme.

Evidence was seized from Nishad’s home, including documents indicative of a fraud spanning thousands of investors across the country. According to reports, Nishad is accused of defrauding hundreds of thousands of dollars from his victims, through soliciting investments in his Morris Coin digital currency.

Investors were lured with the promise of guaranteed returns of 270 rupees per day for 300 days for a minimum deposit of 15,000 rupees, or $200. The returns would represent a daily payout equivalent to approximately $3.60.

There is a shocking amount of Google Play reviews calling this out as a fraud:

Verdict

While these sources may not provide concrete evidence, it is impossible to test the app or view the website’s content, as both are currently defunct. The site is currently unavailable.

The app only returns an error saying “Webpage not available.”

The webpage at https://trade.francexchange.com/ could not be loaded because:

net::ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED.

As such, we will mark this app as defunct.

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.
