  • What’s wrong with the app? Oct 1, 2021

    By SickIndividual
    It worked great the first week for me but I haven’t been able to access my account for the past 5 days, I try opening the app but it just buffers and never opens up my account.
  • Like the information said this is the first version Sep 12, 2021

    It has its ups and downs but I’m hopping this will be a open gate for the future, I’m did registered on the seventh had some issues registering but after a few tries got it to work. Received the $30 bonus and I deposited $100 from a credit card no problem today I transformed my deposit to bitcoin, I wish it was available for all phone model in El Salvador and everywhere so myself we could send money and try it

    I recently download it the app. It was not available for a few weeks after the launch. As respected for any new app. The account setup was very easy. I try the option with my SA passport and it worked. The only thing I see that needs to improve is to allow users to reload the waller using the passport number. As right now it can only be reloaded using the DUI number.
  • Problem during Registration Process Sep 10, 2021

    By Can't Selfie
    Registration process works fine until you get to the selfie. The app switches to the front camera and the full screen is used to display the image to be captured. However, there are no buttons on the screen to advance or return: no button to “snap” the selfie, no button to advance or return to the previous screen, nothing. Only way out is to close the app. Opening the app again means starting the registration process over.

    I have had a great problems the past few days would not load anything. I hope to see this get fixed or debugged. Prior to this sending and receive Bitcoin was fairly easy. Little upsetting that we are unable to cash out on our $30 bonus. Regardless of this, I have great confidence that this will result in extraordinary futuristic accomplishments for everyone and El Salvador.

    I know there may be some errors or inconvenience with the app but it will get better just like anything that goes life. Nothing is perfect, it takes time, feedback, practice, etc. Have used so far to send and buy Bitcoin and have not experienced any problem.
  • Salvadoran in the U.S. Sep 10, 2021

    By Líeron
    I’m in Los Angeles and have recently purchased Bitcoin. I will be traveling to ESA alot and would like to use the Chivo app but I can’t register because you need either a DUI or a Salvadoran passport. I hope modifications are made to better accommodate Salvadoran diaspora so as to better and easily integrate with the motherland, it’s successes, innovations, it’s growing economy, and more importantly with it’s citizens.
  • As an American Oct 5, 2021

    By $bitcoinhold
    As an American I am jealous that there is another country somewhere in this world that isn’t America that made Bitcoin legal tender... And to top it off they have this awesome Chivo wallet with 30$ of Bitcoin. But I have to give five stars because an app that can bank 30% of a country in that time is the future. Thank you greatly!!!

    I waited 12 days to finally have compatibility but it was worth it. I heard first couple of days they were working on some issue that's why it was giving errors but now it seems to be working steady. 💪 let's gooo!!

  • Oct 11, 2021

    By Francisco Salazar Orellana
    Honest review. I WANT TO GIVE IT 5 STARS, AND i will once all bugs are fixed. But for now a 2 star is required. 1st, it won't let you send to an external wallet, unless its strike. And it might not work either. I have many pending transactions and support has been mediocre. Its just support tickets and no resolution. I support bitcoin, but chivo not yet. Sending to trust wallet is impossible since its 0 fees, it never goes through, and its never reimbursed either. Its constantly in maintenance.

    It was easy to install the app. After we were able to get our $30 the app will not let us go back in. We Uninstalled the app and install it again. It will not let us do it again. I wouldn't invest any money at all.

    Its an ok app , very simple and easy to use , but there is something that I really dont like , and it's that you can't link a bank account to make transfer and reload , to me that's stupid because to withdraw money, you have to go to a kiosk, that's not convenient, beside the app is kind of slow

    By Oswaldo Tomasino
    I have registered 4 days ago and have been using it without issues, just now the apps says that my phone number is invalid and can't access at all, not a satisfying experience

    By David Llanes
    Hard to register if your able to get to the registration process if it doesnt give an error or a conection problem, once your inside and you get the bonus Bitcoin you cant use them unless you put some money on it or someone sends you some. Aside from that its a government run wallet so no open source get what you will from it. There a better wallets out there.
  • Not working Sep 13, 2021

    By Erivera01
    This app, start working ok to request all your information, including copy of salvadorean ID and other personal information, the $30 welcome money was applied right after, suddenly the app stop working in my iPhone 12 Pro, I’m concerned about where the personal data is stored and if shared is not clear to whom or when will be shared. I’ll try again to download it in a few more months and give it a second chance.

    By nelson isaacs
    It's not user friendly. I was once able to send money from my bank account... then I couldn't on the pretext that my bank will no allow such transactions. Idk... too many errors.
  • Need a lot of work Sep 11, 2021

    By snoopy79
    Every time I want to use it always asks me to verify my identity and i have to put all my information over and over again..it’s really annoying to do it every time I want to use it and 95% of the time keeps giving me an error message..have to keep trying and trying to sing in every time until go’s in and then it’s start all over again.
  • Sep 26, 2021

    By Pedro Guzman
    Hardly every works, and when it does, it doesn't inspire confidence to put money in it. Considering next time you try to log in it won't load. Useless I would say.

    By Tio Neto
    The app needs a lot of work, I’m very patient because this is the first app ever launched by a such small country, being the first version of an app always gave compatible issues and lots of bugs, I will be waiting for an update to make use of it later
  • Easy to use Oct 5, 2021

    Fast, user friendly, no additional fees, what you transfer is what you have no more or less. Great app to use to send, transfer money to family or friends back home. Looking forward to the advances and upgrades on this app.

    I am trying to use this app, but every time I opened it gives an error message. User or incorrect PIN. I GO BACK TO FORGOT PIN AND IT GIVES THE SAME MESSAGE. I don't see a section where I can contact anyone for support. I like the idea of been able to sent money to my family direct from my phone but it's frustrating nit been able to use.
