What Is Trust Wallet?
The Trust wallet is a mobile cryptocurrency wallet supporting many smaller native tokens besides the big, popular ones like Ethereum, TRON, Binance, etc.
Trust Wallet was founded by Viktor Radchenko in 2017 after noticing that there was no open-source wallet for Ethereum and ERC20 tokens on app stores.
He previously co-founded Trucker Path in 2013.
In 2018, Binance acquired the platform. Radchenko, now a Binance team member, still works on the platform. The Wallet is secured by a proof-of-stake (POS) consensus mechanism that effectively protects against Sybil attacks.
Binance also offers a US$10,000 bug-bounty program that rewards those who spot vulnerabilities in the Binance Chain and its core smart contracts.
The wallet is also secured by a password security lock and a 12-word recovery code.
The Trust Wallet token (TWT) provides various benefits and incentives to wallet users.
It was initially launched on Binance Chain as a BEP-2 asset but later relaunched as a BEP-20 token on Binance Smart Chain in 2020.
TWT token holders can get discounts on in-app cryptocurrency purchases and decentralized exchange (DEX) services.
It also allows them to participate in the governance of Trust Wallet with voting rights on the wallet’s proposals. Hence, it is both a utility and governance token of the wallet.

The token can be traded on crypto exchanges such as Binance, KuCoin, CoinTiger, MEXC, BingX etc. However, one must exercise caution while investing in the unregulated crypto space.
