Blockstream Unveils ‘Metal’ for Crypto Private Key Storage

0


Blockstream, a leading provider of blockchain technologies, has unveiled its latest product: Metal, a highly-durable cold storage device for cryptocurrency wallet private keys and seeds.

The Metal’s functionality is simple and intuitive, allowing users to organize tiles inside the package by sliding them one by one to match their desired phrase. The device is tamper proof and claims to be resistant against fire, water and “shock.”

Blockstream’s new product is manufactured by Billfodl, a startup focused on developing indestructible offline backups for hardware and cold storage wallet, and based on the open source design by CryptoSteel.

This release comes a week after Blockstream launched a new block explorer that allows users to monitor real-time data for both the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain and the Liquid Network sidechain.
