It's more than likely legitimate. Once a Microsoft Store app is installed, Windows doesn't allow third-party applications to edit it, so the app would have had to contained malicious code when it was installed. Since it's normal for apps to use cryptographic API's, seeing files with the word "crypto" in their name isn't entirely uncommon.
