The developer of the fake Trezor app has told Apple's app review team that it "is not involved in any cryptocurrency." As a result, after a while, the Trezor app turned into a cryptocurrency wallet without the knowledge of the App Store review team. Apple's App Store doesn't allow the change, but those involved said they don't know when it happened. The company says it relies on users, customers, to spot and report violations.

In February of this year, Li Lei (pseudonym) began to pay attention to BTC after seeing the news that Tesla founder Musk had repeatedly commented on Bitcoin. Since he had never had any trading experience before, he searched for "buy bitcoin" on the Internet, and the search-zce engine pushed an app called "okex client". Li Lei is an Apple mobile phone user, "but I did not download this app in the Apple App Store, but loaded it on the mobile phone through a web link." He told Honeycomb Finance that after installing and registering an account, he was in a Under the guidance of the customer service staff, I purchased USDT worth 1,000 yuan. "The other party guided me to buy a bullish order. I thought it was a bitcoin purchase. As a result, within 10 minutes, my account was reset to zero." " Li Lei later learned from a friend who was speculating in coins that the "okex client" he downloaded was not the official client of OKEx, an encrypted asset trading platform. It also bears the okex trademark, but the columns in the app are completely different. My friend said that I encountered a fake pheasant futures exchange.” At present, due to policy constraints, China’s Apple App Store does not support any encrypted assets Apps on the trading platform are on the shelves, and domestic Android app stores such as Huawei AppGallery and Yongyongbao cannot download the apps of mainstream exchanges. Honeycomb Finance found that there is an app called "OKEx Pedometer" in the Huawei application market. For users in the circle, it will not "hurt money" if they make a mistake. On the other hand, there is a status of trading platforms in App Store. For example, an exchange brand is displayed as a "note application" in the introduction, but after downloading, it is actually an encrypted asset trading application. In the Xiaomi app, there is indeed a pirated version of Ouyi OKEx, including the misappropriation of the trademark, Chinese name, and English name. After downloading, it is indeed a trading platform, but the user interface of the Ouyi OKEx genuine app is completely different. Some downloaders have already commented that it is "fake software, scam software". Domestic mobile application stores have strict control over encrypted asset trading platform apps. Most of them prevent Xiaobai from falling into the trap of fake software by prohibiting them from being put on the shelves. The way to install the App is not limited, of course, it is more dangerous, and it is easier to download to a fake mobile client. Suspicious Apps using the Binance brand are examples of the above-mentioned risks. An Android app that was accessed by Baidu mobile assistant through a browser stole the real Binance logo. If you compare the app avatar carefully, you can find that there is only a difference in color depth. After downloading, the fake app was intercepted by the mobile phone's security assistant and prompted that there was a security risk. If it is installed forcibly, the registration entry can still be provided, and the registered account on the real Binance will not be recognized. This means that if a user installs it forcefully, he will fall into a trap. At present, encrypted asset trading platforms including Ouyi OKEx, Huobi, and Binance have issued security risk warnings on anti-phishing, anti-fake customer service, and anti-fake official websites in their official channels. In the current bull market, the wide-area nature of the Internet may cause novice users who are not familiar with encrypted asset transactions to encounter "Li Gui" and be tricked and stolen. They bought encrypted assets with real money.
