[1] : Blue Wallet's Lightning is Custodial by Default but users can opt to connect their app to their own Lightning Node using LNDhub. The On-Chain functionality is non-custodial.

[2] : Wallet of Satoshi is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds.

[3] : Tippin.me is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds.

[4] : Opennode is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds. You can (and should) set reoccurring withdrawals to send any bitcoin you receive to your own wallet.

[5] : Bottle.li is fully custodial meaning you do not have your private keys, thus you are not guaranteed full control of your funds

For a project to be listed on bitcoin-only it must simply meet the following two requirements;

Requirement

2.Reject ever supporting altcoins.

Why bitcoin only?

Absolutely not. People make mistakes (such as supporting / promoting altcoins) and my belief is that if a project is now genuinely bitcoin only it is welcome; such as Gab:
