Freewallet is a startup that creates mobile-first cryptocurrency wallets for iOS and Android devices. Currently, Freewallet provides mobile wallets for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Lisk, Dogecoin, FantomCoin, and other major 22 cryptocurrencies.[1][2] In 2017, Freewallet also released the web version for their Multi Wallet app[3] and the Token Wallet available on Android.[4] Freewallet supports all popular platforms to give users access to their funds on any mobile device.[5]

History

Freewallet was founded in January 2016. FantomCoin wallet was the first application, created by the Freewallet team to test the technology and minimize risks for the first customers. The test showed good results, indicating that no critical bugs were found, so the team moved forward to create wallets for popular cryptocurrencies. Later, the team published Ethereum wallet, Bitcoin wallet, and Monero wallet on Google Play. Soon, Ethereum wallet became #1 on Google Play. In the beginning of July, Bitcoin, Monero, and Ethereum wallets were approved by Apple and published on the App Market.[6] Freewallet has scored over 15,000 users through organic growth.[7]

Recently, Freewallet has published Lisk wallet for Android, and Dogecoin wallet for Android and iOS.[8][9]

On June 14,2017, some users noticed that funds from their wallets had been allocated to a single address [10]. Approximately, 8.5 million dollars in Ethereum had been re-allocated. Some analysts suspected a hack or Exit scam. Freewallet later clarified that the move was planned from the start, although not all users were satisfied with this explanation.

Products

Freewallet consists of 22 mono wallets on Android and 9 mono wallets on iOS for a total of 22 coins and tokens. Other products include the Multi Wallet app for managing multiple digital assets in a single place and the Token Wallet designated for storing, receiving and sending supported ERC20 tokens.
