  2. When Billion Bitcoin Wallet is set up, an obfuscated identifier is derived from a wallet's recovery phrase, account is registered on a server maintained by Evolution Group Limited and anonymous unique device id is assigned to a device for the purpose of devices differentiating. Further authentication into account is proceeded with a use of cryptographic signatures.
