Disclaimer

The following Analysis is not a full code review! We plan to make code reviews available in the future but even then it will never be a stamp of approval but rather a list of incidents and bad coding practice. We cannot find and tell you all the dark secrets the wallet providers might have.

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

This app is not a Bitcoin wallet. Neither the description nor the website claim support of BTC and when installing it, you can find tokens with “Bitcoin” in their name that can be managed with this app but none of them actually is Bitcoin.

Verdict Explained

This app appears to not be a bitcoin wallet but might serve as a relevant app for other tokens or currencies that we currently are not looking into yet. Feel free to comment on our issue for this app if you think we missed something.
