Binance Trust Wallet launches desktop client for Mac, Windows and Linux to come within weeks

Trust Wallet, the official wallet of top cryptocurrency exchange Binance, has released a desktop client for its crypto wallet with initial support for macOS, and Windows and Linux support to follow.

First released as a mobile-only application in November 2017, Trust Wallet is an open-source multi-coin wallet and decentralized application browser compatible with over 20,000 Ethereum-based tokens, according to Binance, and approximately 30 blockchain-native cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin.

Binance acquired Trust Wallet in July 2018 stating the team behind the wallet would retain full development rights “while benefiting from the increased synergy” with its new owner, one of the world’s top exchanges by daily volume. Explaining his company’s first and only acquisition to date, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao later held up the wallet as the “best” in the “on-chain mobile wallet category”.

Last month Trust Wallet unveiled a feature allowing users to trade directly from their wallets on Binance DEX, requiring desktop traders to sync their mobile phones via QR code and manually approve all transactions. The new desktop client will now facilitate trading on Binance DEX directly.

According to Trust Wallet founder Viktor Radchenko, the majority of cryptocurrency users on desktop use Windows—the PC client will likely be released within a few weeks, Radchenko told CryptoSlate.
