There was no mention of BTC or any other cryptocurrency in their Playstore description.
On their website’s help center, Vantage mentions that crypto assets “are offered in the form of CFD.”
Kindly note that Crypto assets are offered in the form of CFD. As CFD markets are closed over the weekend crypto trading is not available either.
CFD trading entails that users do not actually own the assets and as a result, cannot send or receive bitcoin.
The product can't send or receive BTC.
As part of our Methodology, we ask:Can it send and receive bitcoins? If not, we tag it No send/receive
If it is for holding BTC but you can’t actually send or receive them with this product then it doesn’t function like a wallet for BTC but you might still be using it to hold your bitcoins with the intention to convert back to fiat when you “cash out”.
All products in this category are custodial and thus funds are at the mercy of the provider.
