Trust Wallet’s mobile versions to receive new functionalities
Those who use Trust Wallet on their Android smartphones also have access to an integrated dApp browser, which also allows them access to various DeFi projects, as well.
Meanwhile, Viktor Radchenko, Trust Wallet’s founder, also revealed plans to add multiple DeFi protocols to Android and iOS versions of the wallet alike. The move would increase liquidity even further, and make the wallet even more intuitive and secure.
Keeping the wallet easy to use and navigate is extremely important, which is something that Radchenko understands. In fact, he said that simplicity is the key.
