Trust Wallet has now extended its services beyond mobiles and is now accessible through desktops, namely on macOS. It will be available on Windows and Linux in the coming weeks.
Binance is the largest cryptocurrency exchange and Trust Wallet is its official wallet.
Slowly but surely! https://t.co/eDTe3rdC7Y

This announcement comes after Trust Wallet announced an important update last month. The feature allows users to use their wallets directly to trade on Binance DEX. However, desktop traders had to sync their mobile phones via a QR code and manually approve all transaction. Now, with the desktop upgrade, users can trade on Binance DEX using their desktops which support macOS.
Unfortunately, the majority of their users (nearly 75%) use Windows on their desktops. The team will try to release the Windows update within a few weeks.
Trust Wallet is an open-sourced coin wallet which can support a range of cryptocurrencies. It was released in November 2017 as a mobile-based application. The decentralised application browser is compatible with over 20,000 ERC20 tokens and about 30 blockchain-native tokens such as Bitcoin.
Binance took over the application in July of last year, with the original development team retaining full development rights. The acquisition was Binance’s first and only. Changpeng Zhao, known in the community as ‘CZ’ and the CEO of Binance believed the wallet was exemplary in the “on-chain mobile wallet category”.
This announcement comes among a slate of others for Binance, which occurred last week. Some of these updates include a partnership with Crypto.com, the announcement of an ICO on the Binance Launchpad for the startup Perlin, the enabling of margin trading for Canadians, expansion into the European market with a London office, and the introduction of new stablecoins on Binance DEX.
