Help spread awareness for build reproducibility

Please help us spread the word, asking Trustee Wallet bitcoin wallet to support reproducible builds via their Twitter!

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.

The Analysis

On the App Store the provider claims:

NON-CUSTODIAL
Trustee doesn’t authorize third parties to store private keys and details of your assets, so operations remain only yours!
Any time you buy or sell bitcoin we guarantee that no one else will save your transaction details. Everything is stored solely on your Trustee wallet and you are the only owner of your private keys and the seed phrase.

This is weirdly worded but the final sentence is very clear about who owns the private keys: You alone on your phone.

On public source their website claims:

Our benefits
Trustee Wallet is an open-source mobile multi-currency crypto wallet, this is the ideal solution for the safe storage and operational management of your crypto assets

and we found their GitHub.

There they comment in length on the issue of reproducibility for their Android wallet but make no such claims for their iPhone product wich leads us to the verdict: not verifiable.

Verdict Explained

Few users
This app has too few users for now to be reviewed in detail.

This app still needs to be evaluated but before that, gain some users. In the Play Store there is an infinite list of "wallets" and we focus on those that have the biggest impact if things go wrong.
