Binance-owned Trust Wallet has announced that both its iOS and Android wallets will now support Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC).
The wallet originally only supported Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum ERC-20 tokens upon initial release.
Finally, the long wait is over – #Bitcoin $BTC was added to Trust Wallet on Android! https://t.co/Zn1MtHQVWa pic.twitter.com/watlUrgQdc

Just a few days ago, the Trust Wallet team announced that they were “kicking off the new year with a 2-week coin-adding sprint.” They were offering prizes in BNB to people who replied to their tweet with correct guesses of which three coins they would be announcing support for.
Backed by Binance
Trust Wallet, which was first released for Android on October 25th 2017, was acquired by Binance in July 2018. At the time of the announcement, Binance said that: “The acquisition of Trust Wallet will add an on-chain mobile wallet to the list of Binance services with other future integration possibilities. The Trust Wallet brand and team will retain the autonomy and freedom to develop the core product while benefiting from the increased synergy from Binance, including the broad user base and the upcoming DEX.”
Moving into dApps
As part of the announcement, the Trust Wallet team made the claim that Trust Wallet is “the only mobile wallet that offers you dApp support for Ethereum, POA, and Ethereum Classic.”
They are hoping to become a “one-stop solution for interacting with this new decentralized world, so going forward we will be adding more coins and features to enable our users to fully embrace the seamless experience of having all your tokens, collectables, dApps, and more in one place.”
“We have a lot more planned and lined up for you including additional coins, more features, more competitions, and some long-anticipated design tweaks.”
