What you need to know

It is crucial to understand that BLW is a standalone app, it is not a thin client to a centralized service.

This most importantly means that your money is stored right on your phone and nowhere else which gives you a ultimate censorship resistance: no one can ‘freeze your account’ or cancel your transactions, but at the same time this makes you the only one responsible for securing your funds.

That said, BLW is designed in such a way that money won’t be lost no matter what if you do everything right. Please be sure to read the Essential App Guide if you do want to use this app!
