    Also in the settings section, you can enter a promo code, get information about the application, navigate to the Dapp-browser, and log out of the account by pressing Log out.

    Users of other wallets may notice that the mobile version of Lumi Wallet does not have a section with language settings. This is because the app automatically detects the optimal language for you and runs in it.

    ________________________

    TON Crystal in a new wallet is great news. However, to the principled members of the Free TON community, who signed the Declaration of Decentralization, it can be somewhat controversial: Lumi Wallet is a centralized solution with all the inherent advantages and disadvantages.
