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 

Update 2021-10-14: This app is no more available.

(Analysis from Android review)

App Description

From Google Play:

The BBX-Cryptocurrency Index Trading (Bitcoin,ETH,EOS) app is better than other bitcoin exchanges or crypto exchanges.

BBX is clearly an exchange. These apps usually lean towards a custodial nature. Additionally:

Multiple security mechanisms, industry-leading security
Our team has a wealth of experience in creating security systems, offline cold storage to protect your assets. Online decentralized smart contract allow users top up or withdraw assets safely, eliminating potential internal and external risk.

The Google Play reviews are notably strange, with most of the five-star reviews only saying something to the effect of “nice app” or “good”.

The Site

As of this review, attempting to access the website only results in a blank white screen. The Privacy Policy was linked in the description, but it only lead to a DNS error.

The browser tab displays some Chinese characters, and we assume that this is one of the effects of China’s recent ban on cryptocurrencies.

The App

Registering to the app is also impossible at the moment. Trying to sign up will get an error:

Unable to resolve host “api.tiger.cloud”: No address associated with hostname

Verdict

While it is difficult to make a conclusive verdict on this app due to the lack of availability, we are compelled to mark it as custodial until further notice.

It is also highly probable that this app is already defunct, but since its Google Play app was updated last May 26, 2021, it is prudent to say that it is still custodial. Thus it is not verifiable.

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.
