Binance’s Trust Wallet Releases Desktop App for MacOS

The Binance-owned digital currency wallet, Trust Wallet, has released a desktop application for macOS.

The team behind Trust Wallet announced the development in a tweet today, Aug. 12, also revealing that the wallet will be available in the Mac App Store shortly.

In a series of tweets, Trust Wallet founder Viktor Radchenko disclosed that support for Linux will be launched next week. Radchenko further said that the main challenge for the team now is to port Trust Wallet to Windows, which they have ostensibly not done yet. Radchenko also noted that most desktop crypto users — around 75% — are on Windows.

The development follows news that Binance added support for multiple decentralized exchanges (DEXs) to Trust Wallet by integrating the Kyber Network protocol, a dedicated platform for cross-token trading solutions. 

Binance acquired Trust Wallet in August 2018. At the time, Binance claimed that Trust Wallet will remain autonomous in most of its operations, while Binance will help with administration and work on marketing development.

Trust Wallet is an open source, U.S.-based, anonymous, and decentralized wallet that supports Ether (ETH) and various Ether-based tokens (ERC20, ERC223, and ERC721).

In June, Binance released Trust Wallet on Binance DEX. The integrated wallet will purportedly help support Binance DEX users wishing to maintain custody and full control over their funds, while benefiting from fast trading services.
