(Analysis from Android review)
BitKan is a one-stop investment service platform for Bitcoin. BitKan provides multiple services such as Market Price Watch, Informations, Community K Site, Digital Wallets.
您可以使用钱包来保存钱包支持的货币和数字代币及其对应的钱包支付密码和私钥。 为免生疑问，Bikan平台的数字钱包服务不包括：（1）存储用户密码安全问题及答案； (2) 冻结钱包； (3) 挂失钱包； (4) 恢复钱包； (5)回滚传输。
According to Google Translate:
You can use the wallet to keep the currency and the digital tokens supported by the wallet and their corresponding wallet payment passwords and private keys.
For the avoidance of doubt, the digital wallet service of the Bikan platform does not include: (1) store user password security questions and answers; (2) freeze the wallet; (3) report the loss of the wallet; (4) restore the wallet; (5) roll back the transfer.
We downloaded the app and registered. We then tried looking for the private keys.
Note that Bitkan has on several occassions referred to private keys in these articles:
Despite these articles, we were not able to locate any information pertaining to the keys on their platform. The articles merely referred to them as educational material.
Absent credible proof or documentation where the private keys are stored, we reached out to Bitkan via Twitter to ask.
While waiting for their reply, we are going to assume that as the keys are not actually accessible or viewable at the moment. In that case, we are compelled to mark this app as custodial unless there is further update or clarification from the providers. Thus, this app is not verifiable.

Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
