In the past year or so I’ve gotten to review two Bitcoin hardware wallets – TREZOR and Ledger. I’ve also matched them head to head and compared the differences, but today a new competitor has entered the arena.
KeepKey is the latest crypto hardware wallet. And I say Crypto hardware wallet and not Bitcoin hardware wallet because apparently KeepKey supports Bitcoin, Testnet, Litecoin, Namecoin, Dogecoin, and Dash (although at the moment the Chrome interface only supports Bitcoin).
Unboxing a beautiful design
The first thing you’ll notice when you get your KeepKey is how exciting the whole unboxing process is. You can tell that a lot of thought was put into the packaging and product design. The box comes with a KeepKey seal which shows that no one has opened it before you, indicating that the device is secure.
When comparing this to TREZOR or Ledger’s packaging you automatically feel that you’re in a different league so to speak. The content of the box includes the KeepKey hardware wallet, a USB cable to connect the KeepKey wallet to your computer, a card to write your recovery sentence on it and a nice leather case to keep that card
