I searched the forums and have seen no discussion on this topic. I stumbled across a website that told it’s users that Samourai Wallet is the “most popular Bitcoin wallet on Android” (https://www.buybitcoinworldwide.com/mining/software/).
Curiously I checked out the website (https://samouraiwallet.com/)
It’s very slick! What impressed me most of all was that the app is open source as described on their download page (https://samouraiwallet.com/download), on which they provide a link to their Github (https://github.com/Samourai-Wallet/samourai-wallet-android). At the time of writing the github has 45 watchers and 401 stars from other github users, at a superficial glance.
As I said, I did search this forum and didn’t see any discussion about this. So I’m just interested in why the software is not on F-Droid. I’ve never used it before so I don’t know whether it has advertising, or uses too many non free services, or whether it’s even a legit wallet at all. Maybe someone has devised an elaborate scam, although I doubt that.
Is anyone able to shine more light on this?
