### Additional Observations

This app's social media support is rather odd. The Twitter account appears to constantly retweet posts from a seemingly unrelated homescreen decoration service called Tile Widget.
The Play Store reviews are very strange, with scam or review bombing accusations thrown around.

       Same User write this :) You are so so so bad abusers in our service.

### The App

For the actual app, there's no clear information in the description about what it's meant to be used for.

> We have reduced the inconvenient phase in Deposit/Withdrawing. Save your withdrawal address, choose it immediately, and just send it.

It appears to be possible to send and receive BTC. Notably, nothing is mentioned about security or self-custody.

We installed the app. Upon trying to create a BTC wallet, we chose the option to "generate an address." However this only resulted in an error message claiming:

> not suppoort coin [sic]

Some features of the app are restricted and require KYC certification first. This includes identity verification.

Due to the lack of self-custody and the use of KYC, it is safe to assume that this app is custodial and thus **not verifiable.**
