DokWallet: Crypto WalletLatest release: 1.55 ( 25th October 2021 ) 🔍 Last analysed 26th December 2022 . No source for current release found Not updated in a while
Without public source of the reviewed release available, this product cannot be verified!
As part of our Methodology, we ask:
Is the source code publicly available?If the answer is "no", we mark it as "No source for current release found".
A wallet that claims to not give the provider the means to steal the users’ funds might actually be lying. In the spirit of “Don’t trust - verify!” you don’t want to take the provider at his word, but trust that people hunting for fame and bug bounties could actually find flaws and back-doors in the wallet so the provider doesn’t dare to put these in.
Back-doors and flaws are frequently found in closed source products but some remain hidden for years. And even in open source security software there might be catastrophic flaws undiscovered for years.
An evil wallet provider would certainly prefer not to publish the code, as hiding it makes audits orders of magnitude harder.
For your security, you thus want the code to be available for review.
If the wallet provider doesn’t share up to date code, our analysis stops there as the wallet could steal your funds at any time, and there is no protection except the provider’s word.
“Up to date” strictly means that any instance of the product being updated without the source code being updated counts as closed source. This puts the burden on the provider to always first release the source code before releasing the product’s update. This paragraph is a clarification to our rules following a little poll.
We are not concerned about the license as long as it allows us to perform our analysis. For a security audit, it is not necessary that the provider allows others to use their code for a competing wallet. You should still prefer actual open source licenses as a competing wallet won’t use the code without giving it careful scrutiny.The product 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 product 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.
But we also ask:
Was the product updated during the last year?If the answer is "no", we mark it as "Not updated in a while".
Bitcoin wallets are complex products and Bitcoin is a new, advancing technolgy. Projects that don’t get updated in a year are probably not well maintained.
This verdict may not get applied if the provider is active and expresses good reasons for not updating the product.The product 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 product 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.
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.

Section 8 of its Terms and Conditions state that:
Moreover4u2 may terminate these Terms or suspend Your access to the Services at any time, including, without limitation, in the event of Your alleged or actual misuse of the Services or breach of these Terms.
We downloaded the app and registered. We were then given the choices to “Create a Wallet” or “Import”. Choosing “Create a Wallet” displays a 12-word seed phrase.
We were able to import the wallet using the mnemonics.
Note: When installed on an Android Emulator, its tab name is ‘PumaPay’ which is the name of another wallet:
This could hint at the app being a copy of a competitor’s product, which would at best be a licensed copy and at worst a fake wallet by hackers too lazy to code their own product.
DokWallet does not refer to the project as an open-source project in its website or in any of its documentation. We also could not find any relevant or related code with the appID ‘com.dok.wallet’ on Github.
