★☆☆☆☆ Februaru 26, 2021
This app is very poor. I can’t send bitcoin because it keeps crashing when I press the send button. Also on different device it says insufficient funds not matter how much, or how little you send so you can’t do anything. Very poor. And why you can’t use same functionality on web, at least to mitigate the shortcomings of the app. Now my bitcoin is sitting there losing value cause I can’t send it.
Its homepage description reads:
Simple exchange platform with over 300 payment providers around the world.
Universal solutions for fund exchange between payments providers.
We downloaded the app and was able to locate the BTC wallet. However, the private keys nor the mnemonic seed phrases were both not readily apparent. It seems to be a fiat/voucher/gift card balance to bitcoin exchange and vice versa.
When we tried to share our BTC address from the wallet, no QR code was generated and the BTC address would only appear visually once it has already been shared to the receiving party.
A huge chunk of its short User Agreement is focused on prohibited entities including businesses.
As there is a capability to send and receive Bitcoins with an entity that has the power to that , we determine this app to be custodial and thus, 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.
