I am sure you are aware that an unpleasant issue in relation to crypto-currencies is forgetting your password. It is assumed that up to 35% of all bitcoins that have ever been created, have been irrevocably lost because a password has been forgotten or lost. This basically means that if you can’t remember your password, then bad luck, you won’t have access to your money.
Benjamin Hubert and his Layer design agency has developed a personal crypto-currency storage device, which cannot be attacked or lost. It is still a concept for the time being.
The Trove is a portable deluxe device providing a method for storing and administering digital currency for daily expenses and trading. The device consists of 4 parts, including intelligent security systems, which makes it less susceptible to an attack by hackers.
The deluxe device, which stores crypt-money off-line, is shaped like a flat coin with a diameter of two centimetres. The device is fitted with an electrocardiogram (ECG) scanner. It is unlocked when you press your finger to the front and it uses the so-called ECG signature, a biometric method of verification, which recognizes the unique pattern of the user’s heart as a key. The device then communicates with the user’s smartphone through Bluetooth and enables payment transactions to be made. This method means that no numerical input codes for crypto-money can be lost or forgotten. The Trove consist of replaceable, luxuriously fashionable “carriers” and also a simple by intuitive application and induction charging stand.
The crypto wallet can look like a watch or sometimes like a tablet and is made from interesting materials. It is embellished with black and silver aluminium. The entire device is enclosed in volcanic rock with a polycarbonate container, which is powered through a USB-C port and inductively charges the coin. It has many uses, it can be magnetically joined to a bracelet or can be a deluxe decoration in the form of a necklace or brooch. You will be surprised by its size, which is only 3 mm x 20 mm.
