Mexo has [a blog post](https://blog.mexo.io/how-to-buy-bitcoin/) directly stating that it is a custodial platform.

> Most cryptocurrency exchanges, __including Mexo__, allow you to securely custody Bitcoin on their platform after purchase.  If you are not familiar with how to store your own private key or have zero experience in Bitcoin wallet, then it could be easier for you to store your asset on a trustable exchange.

### The App
We downloaded this app to view the features. It is possible to send and receive crypto using a BTC address or QR code. Users may trade bitcoin from the markets. 

There is no option to export private keys as it is a custodial service.

### Verdict
This app is **custodial** therefore **not verifiable.**
